A classic 1964 war film set during the UsefulNotes/AngloZuluWar. Based on true events, the film is the story of a LastStand that the defenders managed to win. The Battle of Rorke's Drift was the result of the Battle of Isandlwana, at which the British expeditionary force of 2000 sent to crush the Zulus had been destroyed through a combination of skilled Zulu leadership of fearless legions of warriors [[GeneralFailure and the incompetence of British commanders.]] 139 British soldiers in a farmstead, assigned there to protect colonials and wounded (about one third of the 139) held out against 4-5,000 Zulus for 12 hours. The battle is held to this day as one of the very best defenses in all history. Eleven of the soldiers got the VC, the highest number of this medal ever awarded for a single action. Also notable for being the first starring role for an insignificant actor named MichaelCaine. Followed fifteen years later by a prequel, ''Zulu Dawn'' about the disastrous Battle of Isandlwana that took place earlier the same day. It starred Burt Lancaster and Peter O'Toole.

Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It's rated a 4, because blood is not an infrequent sight during the battle scenes. That being said, it might've been rated higher if the violence in it looked more realistic.
