A superb film!
21 January 2001 | by Mufasa-3See all my reviews

This film is very true to actual happenings toward the end of George's life. He was a remarkable man and this movie is very well done indeed. It is funny, sad, heart wrenching and just a wonderful film to watch. I I know I am going to have to watch the story of Elsa If I can find it. I have read the bon free series as well as the biography of George by Gareth Patterson (who somehow was left out of this story including the 3 new cubs that George received just before his murder).

The film also shows the true situation in Africa of the cruel slaughter of animals and the systematic corruption that plagues the governments.

A truly inspiring movie, everyone should watch.
