The Last King of Scotland

 (2006)

The Last King of Scotland Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

This is Idi Amin's incredible story as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Garrigan, a young Scotsman who becomes the volatile leader's personal physician, due in part to Amin's unexpected passion for Scottish culture - Amin even proclaims himself "The Last King of Scotland". Seduced by Amin's charisma and blinded by decadence, Garrigan's dream life becomes a waking nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape.

For more about The Last King of Scotland and the The Last King of Scotland Blu-ray release, see the The Last King of Scotland Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Last King of Scotland Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Last King of Scotland debuts on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's true to source, and will have grain-lovers smiling at the warm, gritty, fully cinematic image on display. Most of the film was shot on 16mm—with only select scenes shot on 35mm—so grain is quite noticeable. It looks completely natural, though, and while there are a few spikes in analog noisiness, especially during darker scenes, the image quality is never compromised. The film is never going to be as sharp as those shot natively on 35mm, but clarity is excellent, all things considered. Forest Whitaker's face gleams with sweat, the texture of his skin easily visible, rural foliage pops off the screen, and there's ample detail to be noticed on the film's props and sets. As expected from the African setting, the color palette is lush and varied, from dusty orange dirt roads and deep green grass to the president's aquamarine pool and cool palace interiors. Primaries are especially vivid, with the red and yellow of Amin's epaulets standing out strongly. Black levels can get a bit oppressive at times, but this seems to be an intentional effect of the high-contrast cinematography. And aside from some blotchy pixilation in a cloud of dust, I didn't notice any transfer-related compression issues. Overall, this is a great looking transfer that represents the film well.


The Last King of Scotland Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I was also more than pleased by the film's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which, while not being one of the most action-packed and aggressive mixes I've heard, is certainly dense, full of life and activity. The surround channels are activated frequently, called upon to broadcast place- establishing ambient noise, like birds singing and insects buzzing in the rural village, the cheers of the throng at a political rally, the coming and going of cars in Kampala, and the poolside splash and chatter outside Amin's lavish estate. There aren't many distinct channel movements, but the mix as a whole is enveloping, especially later in the film, when some more impressionistic sound editing techniques are used to sell Garrigan's descent into a political hell. There were a few moments when I felt the actors' voices could be slightly higher in the mix, but I had no trouble understanding any of the dialogue. The film's real audio highlight is the fantastic music. Alex Heffes score is great, but it's often overshadowed by all the wonderful Afro-pop used to set the mood. I have no real qualms about this track; it's engaging, detailed, and dynamically solid.
