Zulu Dawn

High-Def Digest
16 April 2013
  • Conclusion: A prequel to the 1964 war classic, 'Zulu Dawn' portrays the events which led to that historical battle between the British and the Zulus with mostly entertaining results. With a fantastic cast leading the charge, the film has a good deal worth admiring and makes a nice companion piece to the original, but it's doesn't quite match the stature and greatness of its predecessor.

Zulu Dawn Blu-ray Review

11 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Zulu Dawn has that "veddy, veddy British" dissociative quality, and so most of the emotional heft of these piece comes (perhaps appropriately) from the Zulu. The history here is going to be largely unknown to many Americans, and so the accompanying featurettes are a really excellent and smartly conceived set of supplements, and in fact some may want to start with them before watching the actual film, as they give some good context and background.

Zulu Dawn

Rock! Shock! Pop!
11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Directed by Douglas Hickox, this prequel to 1964’s Zulu takes place in the South Africa of 1879 where the men in charge of the British Cape Colony see the native Zulus as a serious thorn in their side. As the tribesmen have a tendency to prove a hindrance to what the occupying British forces see as a way to exploit the country for economic gain, a plan is put in place to remove the problem permanently.
