I have probably watched Zulu over a hundred times but last night watched it in HD and wow, I was speechless. I picked up on minor things which I haven't before and the quality and imagery is absolutely fantastic. I couldn't believe how good the quality was.
Definitely a buy, even if you have it on normal DVD then for the price this a definite buy.
after defeating the british army at 'isandhlwana' killing around 1200 regulars along with severeral hundred african helpers the 'zulu's' turn there attention to the mission at 'rorke's drift'
there are little over 100 soldiers at 'rorke's drift' largely made up of welsh engineers, faced with the onslaught of 4000 zulu warriors.
the 100 prevailed against overwhelming odds.
lt john chard commanded the small company with 'lt gonville bromhead' 2nd in command.
eleven victoria crosses were issued as a result of outstanding bravery 'january 22nd-23rd 1879' including former melingerer 'private henry hook' in no other single encounter have so many 'VC's' been awarded.
this remains one of my all time favourite movies which i first saw nearly 50 years ago.............surely standing the test of time, along with giving legendary actor 'micheal caine' his first role.
