This is one of my favorite movies that I have seen for many years and would very much like to see it restored and updated with some type of special edition. For those unfamiliar with the movie/story, its about the British soldiers who defended the remote outpost of Rorke's Drift in Natal, South Africa on January 22, 1879. The outpost was maned by about 100 British soldiers and they soon discovered they are about to be attacked by 4,000 Zulu warriors. What follows are some of the most spectacular battle scenes ever filmed, as the outnumbered British soldiers are repeatedly attacked by hordes of Zulus. This was also the first movie that featured 2 time Oscar winner Michael Caine. This is the kind of movie that widescreen was meant for. The movie is stunningly filmed, with great scenic backgrounds(no special effects or matte paintings), as well as battle scenes shot on a wide scope and grand scale. If you have seen it, you will notice that many of the great action movies of the past borrow heavily from this movies battle scens. Most particuarily are Aliens, The Last of the Mohicans, and especially Starship Troopers(the battle scene at the outpost where they are vastly outnumbered and attacked by thousands of bugs). Zulu is shown many times on stations like TCM and AMC, and it has had several DVD releases. All feature pretty much the same transfer and no extras. It is in widescreen, with sound in mono and very simple packaging and menus. The print is not terrible, but really only a little better than VHS. A restoration to clean it and the sound up would do this great film a service, as well as some type of extras about the movie itself or the battle, and possibly a commentary by Michael Caine. It would be great to get his input about his first movie and what it has been like 40 years later. You can find this movie pretty cheap at stores and online(I got mine for about $8.00) so its well worth the purchase. So let me know what you think.
