Harris is brilliant as George Adamson committed to reintroducing his lions to the wild and defying authority against great odds.
Richard Harris gives a brilliant performance as George Adamson, the leader of an African Lion Preserve. Battling poachers and the threat of losing his land, Adamson maintains his mystical relationship with his Lions in his efforts to retrain these orphans to survive in the wild. There is no doubt that Harris is the much older Adamson, the teacher and student of these magnificent animals.
The acting is great. The storyline follows all too familiar relationships between the men and women and are quite predictable. Despite that I highly recommend this film.
