Synopsis:
Zulu is one of the great movies, an epic adventure of courage in the face of incredible odds. Based on a true story it tells the amazing tale of 100 British soldiers who stood fast against an overwhelming force of 4000 of the Zulu nation's mightiest warriors in the defence of Rorkes Drift in 1879. Set amongst the stunning South African scenery, Zulu is a landmark action film and a fitting tribute to some of the most magnificent acts of heroism in the history of warfare. Michael Caine's role as the arrogant but courageous Lt. Bromhead brought him international fame, and there are powerful performances from other great British actors including Stanley Baker and Jack Hawkins.

Jolly good - Zulu review by JD

Spoiler Alert
28/01/2010

Tally ho what. This is from the Terry Thomas genre. The fighting scenes are so bad as to be recommendable. I cannot remember ever seeing such utterly unconvincing stabbings. A good laugh. There is some good acting particularly of course by Michael Caine and in parts is quite moving.

Good historical film - Zulu review by Big Bob

Spoiler Alert

Fabulous cinematography and sweeping landscapes. Excellent acting from Caine and Baker in particular, you really feel the sense of dread and desperation. Brings some of the attitudes of the time to the fore, but also dismisses some preconceptions. A very well made film, and very effective considering CGI etc was not available over 50 years ago.
