Zulu Dawn movie Customer Reviews
Zulu Dawn film This was a great history lesson! This event happened soon after the battle at little/big horn! Ironically, the anglos got beat here too, by wit, wisdom and 'soul'. The panoramic scenes and cinematography was astounding! Peter's horse riding was weak (was that historically accurate or peter didn't train enough?). Burt's audio/voice was weak, we had to rewind and turn up the volume. In fact alot of the dialogue and back-round noises were muddled - sound engineering had to be balanced better. The greatness of the movie is the contrasts of the brits and zulus! The tea, cricket and british conservative protocol versus the intense, swarming (that's a key word when you see this movie), determination of the zulus are great to take in and prep with. What happens to a zulu shepherd boy and the brit 'marker' boy are great contrasts too! A must see (if you're a history buff) [wasn't Winston Churchill part of this battle?] !

||A story to long|
A good rendition of the lead up to the battle of Rourke's Drift but this film is to long winded before the action appears.

Zulu Dawn review The scene of thousands of Zulu warriors running for miles across the African landscape toward the inevitable battle is reason enough to buy this movie. Zulu Dawn DVD for sale My favorite scene is when the British enter Zulu territory and are met by a booming voice from the mountains... ." Why do you come to the land of the Zulu?" This simple question is the beginning of the end for many brave British men. The young British soldiers are naively excited to be on a great adventure in Africa. They prove to be ill-prepared for the overwhelming force, tactics, and skill of the Zulu warriors. This defeat of the British is still studied and discussed by military tacticians and historians. If your someone who likes "underdog" movies where a native army wins a battle against superior firepower.... this isn't your kind of movie, because you'll never get the impression that the Zulu warriors were ever at a disadvantage in this battle. I can only imagine what the actual sight of this massive well trained army running full speed toward you or in a flanking maneuver must have looked like... it had to be terrifying. Great movie, you will watch it more than once.
