A surprise. Modest in its blockbuster epic dimension. Good cast, a decadent view of an announced colonial defeat, a sensation os rareness more than fear to the herds of zulus. Small vivid characters as Hoskins and his son Daniels, the man that doesn't like to dliver the bullets while the army is dying. Interesting duel of styles of acting betwenn O'Toole and Lancaster
