19 October 1998 | cglassey
Fun, enjoyable movie about a great man of history.
Winston Churchil is one of the great men in world history. Politician, Prime Minister, Military Commander, Prize-winning Writer, Painter, etc. He was the First Sea Lord of Great Britain during World War I, and he lead England through World War II.

Unlike many great figures in history, Winston's early life was quite an adventure and it is this story which the movie tries to convey. This film is unabashedly sympathetic to Churchill, there is no dark side to his character in this film.

The film does not dwell on the complexities of the situations which Churchill faced when he was young (the details of which are likely to be only of interest to the serious historian).

The film is great fun to watch, especially the battle in the Sudan, and his adventures covering the Boer War as a War Corespondent.

I saw the film when I was a teen-ager and enjoyed it a great deal. In retrospect, I was the perfect audience for the film. The movie is not really aimed at adults and is too historical for young children (though the scenes of Winston's boyhood in Blenhiem Palace were very entertaining).
