Product Details


Product Description

Zulu (1964), director Cy Endfield's magnificent epic about the Battle of Rorke's Drift, pits a tiny force of some 150 British colonials against the massive power of 4000 Zulu warriors, and comes up with a classic film about honor and valor in the face of outrageous odds. Starring Stanley Baker, Michael Caine (in the role that made him an international force to be reckoned with), Jack Hawkins, Nigel Green, and James Booth, the film is a unique combination of boy's own adventure and potent anti-war sentiment. Featuring a sterling score by the one and only John Barry.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Valour Feb. 7 2012
By Argus TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Director Cy Endfield and actor Stanley Baker created a box office winner with this stirring account of a small British garrison's defence of the Rorke's Drift mission station against an overwhelming force of Zulu warriors in colonial South Africa.

Misconceptions about such a very fine movie are easy in our era of political correctness. So be assured, a jingoistic, flag-waving paean to colonialism it most certainly is not. There is a strong anti-war message here. From the young private who asks, "why us," to the garrison commander asserting that he came to "build a bridge," the British soldiers are shown to be homesick outsiders in a strange country they find at once fascinating and perilous. For their part, the Zulus are splendid. Their chilling war chants and shield beating ("...it's that damn train again") are so effective that both Peter Jackson and Ridley Scott later borrowed the idea for their own work ("The Two Towers" and "Gladiator").

Above all this is a film about valour. The heroes are warriors who share a common bond forged in battle. At its climax the surviving defenders grapple desperately with the proud and mighty Zulu army as each side comes to respect the bravery and prowess of the other. Driven by John Barry's inspiring score, this is a magnificent and unforgettable cinematic experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of a Review by Lauren (8 June 2003) June 16 2003
By Zeitsev
Format:DVD
It obviously doesn't take much effort to write a movie review here. The reviewer of "Zulu" on June 8th proves my point.
She entitles her piece "Not very realistic." She goes on to say "I expected to see some kind of standoff and battle that might have taken place in the real world. Instead, I was treated to a spectacle that had no relation to reality." After making a comment like that, you'd expect to hear why the movie has no bearing to the real world. We'd then be treated to a point by point refutation of where "Zulu" erred, backed by the author's foray into historical research.
Instead of this however, we are treated to inanities like: "The whole premise of this movie was absurd. The British contingent was on a mission to build a bridge across a "stream" the flow of which was no wider than if you drained your bathtub. My first question was, "Why are they building a bridge there?" No sane person would build a bridge there. You don't need a bridge to cross a trickle of water you could walk across without getting your shoes wet."
The river in question is the Buffalo River, dear. It formed the border between Natal and Zululand. While the river as shown may have been a "trickle" at the time, rivers DO flood. Ah, well. A little mistake, you say. But wait, there's more...
"Then, the Brit commander was totally dense. Everyone was telling him to pack up and pull back; but no, he had to make a stand. Against all odds. What was the principle involved? Sheer stupidity. Anyone with half a brain could see there was no value in making a stand. Is there value in watching a half wit do something that any sane person would reject outright? That's what this movie is all about. Watching some dense military commander risk the lives of his troops for no good reason.

An excellent portrayal of the Zulu and the British soldier without any justification for them being there. There was an almost international opinion that Europeans should occupy the territories of the world now held by ignorant savages and educate them.
Now more enlightened people just keep quiet about the whole business.
