One of the great matinee style films starring an unusually upper-class Michael Caine fending off "zulus sir, farzands of 'em!" with a stiff upper lip. The film is never patronizing and the anti-war message is nicely understated.

An incredibly detailed war film that focused on a little known historical conflict and goes into minute military strategic detail without sacrificing intriguing characters or themes of courage and honor. Some of the scenes of overpowering African warriors are truly terrifying when shown in contrast to the dwindling numbers of British troops.

Rorkes Drift was a small British mission post which was held by less than 150 soldiers against overwhelming numbers of Zulus in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.
It also holds the record for the largest number of Victoria Crosses ever given to a regiment for a single action.
Taken in context, Zulu could be construed as highly politically incorrect, its leanings towards the British Empire and the madness of Colonialism are not in doubt but what makes this film so rich and powerful are its almost constant battle scenes and the stylish and classic study of heroism and fortitude.
Michael Caine and (the vastly underrated) Stanley Baker are splendidly British and the supp...
