 Review: The Four Feathers

MoviesWhile babysitting the drunk woman in my living room, I had a chance to watch The Four Feathers, which Netflix had mistakenly shipped to my house (hey, I had to open it to send it back anyway).

(((Spoiler Warning)))

The story was, unexpectedly, interesting.

It centers on a character who chickens out of going to war, can't live with himself, and then redeems himself spectacularly to the oohs and ahhs of the spectators.

Heath Ledger turns in a reasonable performance as the protagonist, Harry Faversham, and Kate Hudson managed to not annoy the piss out of me, which may be a first for her (though in all fairness, I don't remember her character from 200 Cigarettes, so technically, I guess she didn't annoy the piss out of me in that one either.)

Overall, I rate this a "When you're sitting at home with your girl and you're in the mood for a war movie and she's in the mood for a character drama, here's something you can rent, though I think she makes out better on the deal."

Though if you're ever babysitting a friend who you find passed out drunk in your living room, this works pretty well there too.
