Serious Jest: (Don’t Bother) This movie is like Black Hawk Down, but without the awesome cinematography or special effects. The Battle of Isandlwana would probably serve as a great subject for a modern film, especially if the filmmaker were to explore the Zulu side of the conflict more. While this movie clearly focused more on the British, and often portrayed the Zulus as bloodthirsty savages, I was relieved to see that it did include a couple of scenes illustrating their humanity.
