To that end, the British present King Cetshwayo with an impossible ultimatum to provoke a war they are sure they can win easily with their rifles and artillery against native spears. However, that war proves more difficult than the arrogant British commander, Lord Chelmsford, expects as his overburdened army fruitlessly searches for the elusive enemy. However, in the shadow of a hill called Isandlwana, the overconfident British army learns to its sorrow just how badly they have underestimated the tactical skill and might of the Zulu nation.
Plot: In 1879, the British suffer a great loss at the Battle of Isandlwana due to incompetent leadership.

An impressive recreation of the events leading up to and of the battle of Isandlwana. The cast quality was first class, but the film jumped about from British to Zulu camps and back again to much, and some more footage of the Zulu rulers and their decisions would have been nice.

As it is the film gave a fairly balanced account of both sides. The actual battle scenes were very impressive but given the area at Isandlwana were not as tightly shot as in Zulu nor as good, and thus the same atmosphere just wasn’t there, with scenes jumping around, and you could not relate to the individual characters as much as in Zulu, as they were on and off screen to quickly.

The Zulu charge though was frightening, and you felt for the soldiers who had to meet it. In short, not as good as the original, and with some mistakes in the British weapons and some equipment, but a very good introduction to Zulu if you were to see both movies back to back.

You win some and you LOSE some.
1879, Sir Henry Bartle-Frere and General Lord Chelmsford decide to invade Zulu territory when King Cetshwayo turns down Queen Victoria’s policy. This leads Cetshwayo to scrummage up his many of thousands of Zulu warriors to encounter the moving British forces. After capturing a couple of Zulu warriors, they feed them false information and Chelmsford splits up his force. Believing that their weaponry with overcome the vastly overwhelming numbers of the Zulus. This leaves his minor garrison of just over 1,000 British and African soldiers at Isandhlwana being swamped from all sides by over 20,000 Zulus.

Sometimes that perfect run has got to come to an end. Gloriously disastrous and very downbeat does this large-scale war piece (a prequel of course) turn out to be and that’s how it should. This underrated companion piece to the extravagantly triumphant “Zulu (1964)” is totally the opposite in manner and follows the true historical recount of the arrogant and disgraceful downfall of an unprepared army biting more than it could chew. Cy Endfield (the director and co-writer of “Zulu”) penned the tactical screenplay and takes every opportunity to pinpoint the obvious blunders with sneering intent and that of the colonials’ interference on cultural customs. It’s truly a calculated and politically drawn up feature that goes for depth in its high moral ground and engagingly well-diverse characters.

Those looking for constant action (in the form of “Zulu”) will surely be disappointed, as the pacing can get languid with little more than overly padded scenes making up most of the running time. Although sitting through it is worthwhile for its completely gallant and compelling final act. It’s all about the film’s final payoff and the closing battle is one extremely exciting and exceptionally staged passage of grand, intense combat. Watch as wave after wave of Zulus (quite a scary sight) outsmart and eliminate their enemies with such ease. In what you can call only a resounding massacre. The nail biting, non-stop action lasts for about 25 spectacular minutes and the spacious photography gives it a lot of scope! With multiple angles getting us in the thick of it. Elmer Bernstein’s alarmingly heady music score sufficiently provokes the ever changing emotions of the situations. Director Douglas Hickox handles the action crisply and assembles many stirring visuals amongst the towering manoeuvres. Sturdy direction and vivid camera-work handsomely captures the exquisitely sprawling and lush backdrop to great effect. The tension is raised superbly and fittingly gets you anxious on what’s to come, as most of the fool hearty British officers have no idea just how desperate their plight is.

A classy, all studded cast is on hand, but there’s so many characters coming and going that some roles are more limited than others. A strikingly good Peter O’ Tool plays the glassy, pig-headed General Lord Chelmsford and Sir John Mills provides very little to his sly profiteer Sir Henry Bartle-Frere. A dependably potent and gruff Burt Lancaster makes headway as Col. Durnford and a finely compelling Simon Ward as Lt. William Vereker a few of those who are concerned for. A lively amusing Bob Hoskins is part of the comic banter and gets a lot of those humorously witty dialogues. The drama side of the story might not be flawless, but you can’t go wrong with the battles oh no!

“Zulu Dawn” is a personal favourite of mine that seems to impress and improve exceedingly more each time I gaze upon it. A very detailed, and highly crafted war piece that’s unjustly left in the shadow of “Zulu”.
