Born Free moved audiences in such a way that the music still brings tears to peoples eyes. The inspiring true story of Joy and George Adamson and their fight to keep preserve nature touched a nerve with people. It exposed not only cruelty but gave audiences an insight into the work of two remarkable people who were willing to risk their lives to save animals.
Now comes the continuing story of George Adamson- the Kenyan Game warden who even in his eighties refuses the let lions become hunted like foxes. George takes on Tony Fitzjohn, (John Miche) a drifter from London to help with his quest. After the brutal murder of his wife Joy it becomes clear that George is in danger. The blood on the hands of the hunters = money for the ivory trade and other barbaric souvenir uses. Soon George is not only battling to save the lions but also it to stay alive.
This amazing film has a strong story at its core and is made even more compelling because it is true. The acting is superb. Richard Harris proves that after his career resurgence in Gladiator he has more good performances under his belt. John Miche is also excellent as George's young protégéé- displaying a devil may care attitude mixed with a need to continue in the old man's footsteps by the end of the film.
Absent from the Born Free films were a sense of true grit. In To Walk With Lions there is realism at every turn. When George becomes the hunted- it is not beautiful or easy to watch. Also evident is a sense of irony. The Characters even refer to the Born Free music in a jokey way.
The cinemaphotography is breathtaking and gives you a glimpse of Kenya rarely seen before.

This sequel to "Born Free" stars Richard Harris in the lead role as George Adamson as a lion un-tamer preparing lions that have been raised in captivity how to be "wild". Adamson sees lions as our spiritual brothers and shares an exceptional relationship with them. Adamson also has a young arrogant apprentice (John Michie-Taggart) who has to learn quickly in order to survive. Great movie especially if you love lions as this shows them as they should be.

This brings the elsa and adamsons story right up to date. George and Tony fight the illegal poachers, while the authorities try to end the lion release program, it is a battle on all sides to keep rehabilitating lions while keeping the locals and authorities happy, while preventing the poaching. facinating, and moving throughout, it shows a mans determination to keep wildlife both wild and alive definately a must see

This powerful and ultimately tragic tale opens in 1980 shortly before Joy Adamson's(HONOR BLANKMAN) brutal murder and charts the 9 years following her death. Tony Fitzjohn(JOHN MICHIE), an orphaned drifter from London finds himself down and out in a remote Kenyan Town. To earn money for a ticket back to England, he agrees to a couple of week's work on George Adamson's(RICHARD HARRIS) secluded KORA Game Reserve. After the initial shock of contact with these huge lethal cats, and the alarming information that the assistant he is replacing was eaten by one of them the week before, Tony commits himself to working at Kora. He grows to understand the lions and love them as much as George. Poachers, the rangers, constant enemies, have in most parts of Africa, decimated the elephant for ivory, the rhino for its precious horn and the lion for its pelt. The Somali Shifta bandits begin to trespass into Kora and George and Tony are forced into deadly firefights with the poachers as they chase them from the Reserve. After reading born free and watching 'born free' and 'living free', I wanted to watch ' To walk with lions'. Richard Harris plays George Adamson wonderfully. Says' who is the lord of the land, I am'.
The movie has Terence(IAN BANNEN) and Tony Fitzjohn, also well played by the actors. The movie ends with the Film showing Tony Fitzjohn's work in MKOMAZI Game Reserve in Northern Tanzania.
It was ofcourse, sad to see the ending and even I shead a tear for 'Baba-ya-Simba'(Father of Lions).
The movie is wonderful, cleverly shot in SHABA NATIONAL RESERVE, Kenya and keeps you hooked on until the last minute.
Watch and enjoy, even better , read George Adamson's books,' Bwana Game' and 'My Pride and Joy'.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 24 Nov. 2007
Format: DVD
To Walk With Lions is a nice film in the better sense of the word. Focussing on George Adamson's later years trying to protect his lion reserve from poachers and government closure, it's a more honest and less Disneyfied take on the material than the whitewashed Born Free, as a surprisingly good cameo by Honor Blackman as a temperamental and manipulative Joy Adamson underlines. Richard Harris looks the spitting image of Adamson (he has the look of that type of white African) and surprisingly leonine, although his voice had gone by this point which does hurt some of his scenes, especially his at times unintentionally laughably heroic death scene. It's not a classic by any means, but it's also not a lazy film even if the script isn't great. Not bad.
