4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie well watching August 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I was checking out the new releases down at local Video shop when I saw a copy of "To Walk with Lions" 'Yes,This is the movie for me!' I was born in Kenya but left like many others in 1963, so movies centred around Kenya still draw my heart strings. I guess I thought I knew about George Adamson and the Lions he loved. I have got original copies of Born Free and Living Free. I truly only found out about his death last year in a travel magazine advertising a Kenyan Hotel out there somewhere, so I had some idea about what this movie would be about but no preconceived ideas. I just hoped this movie about Kenya was actually filmed in Kenya as many movies aren't. So I sat down on a Friday night with my 12 year old son David to watch it. This movie was great. I enjoyed it a lot. Not a box office smash but a well acted and well portrayed real life story with passion and sensitivity. It's a true story about people who committed their lives to what they believed in. Richard Harris was a very convincing George Adamson 'Baba wa simba' and the story from where I sat was an extremely convincing portrayal of his dedication and passion for firstly, the lost Lions of northan Kenya and secondly, wildlife conservation in East Africa in general. You felt like you got to know the man. He had grit and was prepared to die to protect animals. A long term commitment, way past the fame of Born Free days. Joy did make an appearance in the movie just to keep it true to character. A surprise for me was to learn about Tony Fitzjohn played very well by John Michie. Through this movie his character was moulded from disinterested drifter to caring conservationist aided by the other stars of the movie and the Lions. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A good script March 3, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I have just finished watching this video, and I feel that I have not wasted my time. This film is based on the true story of George Adamson. Adamson became famous as the man who set the lioness Elsa free in a film called 'Born Free'.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lions touch all mankind March 1, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was true and very entertaining, with romance, action, heart and soul. It had a message for everyone, no matter what country you live in. We found hope from the things they are doing today in Tanzania... No movie has touched my husband and I as much as this one. If you can only see one movie this year, make it To Walk with Lions.

5.0 out of 5 stars BASED on a true Story, Excellent Portrayal April 6, 2009
By ExBwana
Format:DVD
Before I put my Two Cents in (which is all these reviews are worth), it must be clear this is BASED on a True Story, not Word For Word or Incident By Incident. Richard Harris does an Excellent Portrayal of George Adamason and the work he did. This is not a Kiddie's Movie such as "Born Free", as it involves The Adamson's confrontations with The Low-Life Poacher/Criminals who still infest these areas, nor is it "The Lion King", although this title fits Mr. Adamson. I also recommend "Christian The Lion", which is another Great Story.

5.0 out of 5 stars "To Walk With Lions Movie" February 11, 2011
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
There have been many reviews written about this movie. Mine may be redundant but, by golly, I feel like writing it anyway.

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.
