Description by OLDIES.com:

Two-time Oscar winner Richard Attenborough (1982 Best Director and Best Picture, Gandhi) stars as a dedicated British soldier caught in the midst of a revolution in Africa in this compelling war drama. Co-starring Mia Farrow (in her film debut), Guns at Batasi is an "intriguing, thought-provoking" (Citizen News) and "rousing tale!" (The New Yorker)

When the head of the British military in Africa is instructed to turn over command to the native militia, he defies orders and arms himself and his followers with a cache of weapons. When Regimental Sergeant Major Lauderdale (Attenborough) learns of this defiance, he springs into action with all the authority at his command, knowing full well that he's the only thing that stands between order...and massacre!

Product Description:

This melodramatic, intelligent action film, which provides a complex look at the fall of British colonialism in Africa, stars Richard Attenborough as a by-the-books sergeant in a British colony. He is in charge of transferring authority to new leadership in the newly independent colony, but when African officer Lt. Boniface (Errol John) instigates a rebellion, the previously immovable Sergeant is forced to examine his own rigid beliefs.
