"A thundering saga of frontier warfare!" -The Hollywood Reporter
A towering cinematic achievement. An astonishing true story. And "a battle film in the grand tradition of Four Feathers and Gunga Din" (Time)! Filmed against the exotic locales of Africa, and starring Stanley Baker (The Guns of Navarone), Jack Hawkins (Lawrence of Arabia) and Michael Caine (in his first major motion picture role), Zulu is a thrilling account of one of history's fiercest battles!
As a terrifying war chant echoes across the majestic African plains, 4,000 Zulu tribesmen rise up from the tall grass that hides them. Furiously beating their swords against their shields, the warriors descend upon a small garrison of English soldiers. "Usuto! Usuto! (Kill! Kill!)," they cry as they launch into a battle with the vastly outnumbered English militia... who must manifest incredible skill and incomparable bravery just to survive.
