Finally saw ZULU DAWN a few months ago, and I must say, I was shocked at how awful it was. What a waste of great talent! Burt Lancaster was laugh out loud terrible and Denholm Elliot's death scene was flat out ridiculous. I actually shut it off about a half hour in before reconsidering and fast-forwarding to the battle scene, which I thought was OK; nothing special though. I'm sorry, but I just did not like this movie.

I agree that Burt Lancaster was wrong for the part, (thats one of the reasons that Cy Enfield backed out of the project) They wanted an "American" in the movie for American appeal and Burt's salary was almost a third of the budget.
