This film depicts the events prior to the devastating conflict that occurred in 1879 when British soldiers were held siege by thousands of Zulu warriors. Fifteen hundred soldiers were killed in the epic battle. This film portrays the tensions existing between the tribal factions and the British invaders. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A simple two-act story: Prelude to war, and the war. The former is concerned with a lot of British derring-do and priggish behavior. The latter consists of battle scenes with a lot of kinetic energy but not as much emotional punch as they should have."
‑ Christopher Lloyd, Sarasota Herald-Tribune
"A rousing visual spectacle that's a prequel of the Cy Endfield directed Zulu (1964)."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Seen today, it's not only a startling indictment of British imperialism, but it seems a remarkably forward-thinking work."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
