Audience Reviews for Zulu Dawn

  • Feb 10, 2011
    This film must be the most under-rated film of its time. It is a very accurate depiction of the battle of Isandhlwana and the massacre of the British Soldiers. The casting was brilliant, Burt Lancaster and Simon Ward were outstanding in the lead roles. The film following the lives of very different people through a very short timespan was very well done baring in mind the amount of people the film focused on, from a native south african messenger, to an arrogant British General. The film was fair to both armies that fought on that day and deserves to be recognised as a movie epic.

    Considering the epic magnitude of the screenplay and the diverse cast, this should have been much, much better. Directorialy flat and unimaginative.

    Although not as comparable to the original Zulu, this sequel is still a good watch.
