Set in 1884 Sudan, this fifth film to be adapted from the A.E.W. Mason novel follows a British officer who resigns his post right before his regiment ships out to battle the rebels. Perceiving his resignation as cowardice, his friends and fiancée give him four white feathers, the symbol of cowardice, but little do they know he's actually going undercover and plans to redeem his honor.

British forces fighting in the Omdurman campaign of 1898 wore khaki uniforms, not the scarlet jackets used in this film. However even while earlier British infantry soldiers did wear red coats, the cavalry of that period wore blue jackets. The scene in which Dervish horsemen impersonate British cavalry wearing red jackets would be historically inaccurate for both periods. See more »

This movie is really bad. It is way long and there's no action on it. This movie was super boring. Towards the end of the movie I wanted every character to die already. What a waste of production. The plot is super weak. Go rent Braveheart instead.
