Top Customer Reviews
In 'To Walk with Lions' Adamson has become an old and eccentric man who lives to free lions from zoos and circuses. He takes in an English milkman, Tony Fitzroy, who needs a job. When the new aide realizes that he is going to replace a workman who was killed by a lion the week before, he wants to leave straight away: He thinks that Adamson is crazy, but after some time Tony decides to stay after all.
This is a beatiful film: The landscape is fantastic and the script is filled with good comments, laughter and exitement. After a short while you start to like George and Tony, even though neither of them can be called 'average guys'. This is a film that I want to recommend. It is great for animal lovers and everybody else who likes to enjoy a good story.
Richard Harris always provides a 'genuine' character when appearing on screen...from his depiction of Cain in the John Huston film, "The Bible"; many, many years ago...to portrayal of George Adamson in this movie.
Those who've seen actual footage of George Adamson (and listened to him) would stretch imagination only a wee bit to believe Harris is Adamson himself.
The lions and the camp represent the actual site in Kora to such detail...one can almost smell the pungent, intense odor of "cat"! Anyone who's owned felines can imagine how powerful such would be with a half dozen 300 to 400 pound male lions wandering about.
From accounts written about Adamson, the man enjoyed the company of 'birds' as well and the movie delights the viewer with a constant array of little birds hopping about pestering the men for goodies. One irksome rascal even helps himself to supper...while still on the table on the plates!
Yes, as many have noted, the film could have been filmed more realistically at times and if one is judging a movie from that viewpoint, justifiable criticism can be leveled at this movie as well.
But, if one watches a movie for pure entertainment or for the momentary 'tang' of a transient substance, a condiment, a spice of life most of us will never taste otherwise...this movie will gratify the viewer and urge a second or third viewing...or even ownership as it did for me.
