    Splendidly spectacular, intelligent and very well-acted.
  2. The Four Feathers ends on the same dubious note as "Black Hawk Down" and other recent war movies, suggesting that loyalty in the trenches -- not the reason for fighting in the first place -- is all that matters. Many will disagree.
  3. Kapur’s contradictory feelings about his material result in a movie that works against itself. As righteous and consistent as his anger may be -- it’s displayed from the opening title cards to the final shot -- it doesn’t blend successfully with the story.
  4. Its virtues can't outweigh the disappointment of a movie that might have been a rousing old-fashioned epic, or better yet a provocative reworking of an old epic, and instead became a muddle.
  5. The movie's deeper problem and its primary disappointment: its unwillingness to deal directly with the issue of colonialism.
  6. The good news is that it sees what a jihad looks like from both sides. The bad news is that it's not a very good movie, with three fine performances and two great sequences.
  7. 30
    Hoary epic of British Empire valor and cowardice, remade for seventh time, remains rot, old boy.
