I found this effort sadly disappointing.I thought it a pity that they decided to mess around with the dating and set the story apparently in the 1880s rather than the 1898 Omdurman Campaign in which Mason placed his novel. It wasn't clear to me whether the British unit involved was meant to be infantry or cavalry - one moment they are on foot with bayonets fixed, the next careering around on horseback brandishing full-length Martini-Henry rifles - not the most effective weapon in a cavalry charge! All in all it was too politically correct and redolent of early 21st Century attitudes for my taste.
I fear it must be added to the tally of "Four Feathers" re-makes which have failed to match the standard achieved by Korda's 1939 version.
At least the 1950s attempt "Storm on the Nile" had the good sense to use some of the 1939 film's combat footage!

Very disappointed with this re-make.
The book and original film were boys own, stirring adventures. This was an angst-ridden politically correct movie, too slow and too concerned with exploring motivation. An adventure movie should be just that, lots of action, adrenalin, rousing and not slow and tedious. That being said the acting and production was first class.

never mind the mix up with the dates and whether or not it is true to the novel or earlier versions. Heath ledger's acting is brilliant. I would not normally watch this type of film, glad I did. The acting is good, the production great. Heath stood head and shoulders above the rest.

This is a great story of Victorian action. The original film by Zoltan Korda was one of the great epics of all time. The follow up
'Storm over the Nile' followed the same story and even used the same battle scenes and so was adequate. This is a politically correct piece of rubbish - although four feather are featured!
The one battle scene is well done but as for the rest....!!!!
Avoid and buy the original

The cover arrived badly broken. Luckily the dvd inside had not been damaged although half way through the film it stops for a few seconds. Fab film though.

The film is fairly true to the book. Heath Ledger is excellent as Harry the man of conscience and the whole cast and location filming add up to a well crafted tale very well delivered
