Ultimately, The Four Feathers is nothing more than a handsomely mounted escapist action flick.

Director of photography Robert Richardson ... captures the images vividly and draws viewers further into the film's dramatic desert battle scenes.

A 100-year-old adventure classic returns to the big screen in a pretty, progressive and slightly poky adaptation.

Because of the battle scenes, this film will likely appeal primarily to men, though anyone whose primary interest is cinematography should also see it.

What makes this latest version of The Four Feathers the best so far are the beautiful desert locations (in Morocco), and the superb action sequences.

It's ponderous, but it's beautiful.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
September 24, 2002
Adopts the classic epic approach of David Lean, but its heart and soul have far more in common with anti-war, anti-establishment films such as Richard Lester's How I Won the War and Tony Richardson's The Charge of the Light Brigade.

Four Feathers will please those of us who've been waiting to get lost in a historical epic. It isn't flawless, but then how many of those great old films were?

Well-directed by Shekhar Kapur, who deftly finesses Mason's arch-colonialism without endorsing, denying, or putting a smug postmodern spin on it.

Ledger does a great job in the action sequences and the more tender scenes.

Lots of holes, and not just from the bullets. But the battle scenes are spectacular.

A solidly entertaining tale that runs out of steam in its final half-hour, before rousing itself for an emotional finale.
