4 Another hero sold down the rivergavtherock | 01/03/2014 | See all gavtherock's reviews (15)Edward Woodward plays the lead in this amazing film set against the backdrop of South Africa during the Boer war. It revolves around the trial of Morant and his men for the killing of Boers when they had been ordered not to take prisoners! The British goverment and the Austalians naturally would rather not upset the political peace process and say no order was ever issued. The Climax is one that shows how all soldiers good and bad are nothing to the political masters that really run wars. Edward Woodward really owns the role and portrays a professional and brave man. The one thing that really strikes me is during one scene Edward woodward holds hands with a comrade, this wasnt scripted and just happened, however on researching after the filming they found out that Breaker Morant during the incident portrayed in the scene held hands with his comrade.
