Shekhar Kapur's adaptation of The Four Feathers comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has also been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the director and seven featurettes about the making of the film. This is a solid release from Paramount.
At its best, The Four Feathers recalls the consummate craftsmanship and irony-free storytelling of Hollywood's Golden Age. Lou Lumenick

I went to see this movie.It's good.
As a Heath Ledger fan, I found this film mediocre. It was of the British Empire at its pinnacle and equinox. It romanticesces the notion of sujugation and exploitation. I don't like that thought.
Larry D. Bohall, author of Martyr's Cry (ISBN 1591295327): I did not believe that a new production of The Four Feathers could be made that would not completely strip the story of it's non-Politically Correct essentials. I was wrong. While this is not my favorite version of the story (I'm torn between the Jane Seymour televsion version and the 1939 Ralph Richardson classic), it ranks right up there. Sweeping, beautiful, fair and honest to the original (with some simplifications thrown in to keep the plot moving), this version of The Four Feathers was a delight to watch. I was particularly struck by the screenwriter's desire to tell a story of sin/failure and redemption.
I did not like this movie...To long and very boring. Do not rent this movie or buy it. A waste of money.
this movie was one of my favorites. it is a war movie that is not like any other. it's the kind that makes you want to go out to the sudan and fight aalong side harry. this is a touching story about the meaning of friendship! i would recomend this movie to anyone and everyone. even people who don't like ledger will like this movie. there is only one ''scene'' and it is not that bad and you can totally fast forward it and it is not that gory violent. it is safe for most older children to see. if you have any doubts on if this would be a good movie, i hope i've erased then. this is NOT a chick flick... guys, you wilL like this movie too!
I was blown away after seeing this movie. I absolutely loved it. The story is great, the acting is great, and the action is off the hook. This movie is awesome!
I think this movie is REALLY good. There was a lot of great acting here. I think Kate Hudson and Heath Ledger act really well together.
