Zulu (1964) (5/10)

List item

The second British war epic to make the list, Zulu is an incredible retelling of the even more incredible Battle of Rorke’s Drift. It tells the story of a vastly outnumbered and outmanned British garrison of roughly one-hundred men defending against a force of a roughly four-thousand-strong force of Zulu warriors. Upon its release, it was a huge hit, earning a widespread positive critical reception and making large profits at the box office. The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy’s famous Battle of Helm’s Deep was heavily influenced by the film in both concept and cinematography.
