Its failure to present any kind of historical context ill serves the indigenous African peoples whom Endfield presumes to honor.

Joseph E. Levine makes an impressive debut in British film production with Zulu, a picture that allows ample scope for his flamboyant approach to showmanship.

Though, there's an awful lot of lounging around in the hut and a lot of buildup to the battle itself, which doesn't get underway for more than half the film.
| Original Score: 3/5

Zulu is a fairly tough-minded and interesting account of a company of Welsh soldiers doing their bit for somebody else's Queen and Country in an alien land.

Responsável por lançar a carreira de Caine, o filme merece créditos também por evitar retratar os zulus como caricaturas selvagens, mas, mesmo que seja hábil ao criar uma atmosfera de urgência e desespero, acaba tornando-se longo demais.

Students of such things in movies should appreciate this one, for it has all the standard ingredients of the heroic hold-the-fort film.

This amazing film is devastatingly accurate in its depiction of the Rorke's Drift action, and is superbly directed by Cy Endfield, whose battle scenes are some of the most terrifying ever committed to film.
