FOREST Whitaker playing mad dictator Idi Amin is absolutely brilliant.

As we know, Amin was a brutal dictator who showed to the world that absolute power does actually lead to absolute corruption.

Although based on Giles Foden's novel there is more than an element of truth behind the story revolving around Amin's reign of terror when he took power as Uganda's leader.

The rise of Amin is seen through the eyes of a Scottish doctor, played by James McAvoy, who arrives in Uganda in the early 1970s to serve as the dictator's personal physician and witnesses the rise of tyranny in a once British colony.
