Is a good movie,though having read the book you miss a lot of things...what is normal,because is imposible to show in less than two hours all the accion and information that we got in the novel,so they've made a good number of changes.I was trying to remember that this is a movie based on the book,not a representation of the story (they would have needed a mini serie to do it).All in all,as I said is a good movie and worth to be seen...more than once.
DON'T READ THIS GEM...
Spoiler
I wanna read the novel too, after watching the movie~Ali and Brian are indeed great role! I'm really insterested to know what happened to Brian's family.
I also feel quite uncertian about the ending which gives the movie a air of sadness and confusion, but probably I prefer seeing Brian got over everything and had a new begining...

Yes,you should read it Mithriel...is a very good novel and you learn so much about the characters,all of then but specially Brian,he's a lot more than it shows in the movie.You can buy it in Amazon or even download an e-book...that's what I did...I'm so impatient..

According to Japanese press, Orlando will be in Japan on August 26th, to promote the release of "Zulu", that will open in Japan on August 30th with the title "Capetown".
Here is a new still from the movie:

Yay! I'm so happy that you were able to see it.
Maybe it will come this way soon.

What did you think of Orlando's performance?

I knew you'd love Mr. Epkeen...I was captivated from moment one...he's something else,isn't he? and Orlando plays him just perfectly...his best job along with Joe Byrne,IMHO.

Still no sign of this film here, nor of the DVD. Does anyone know if there's an all-region or region 4 DVD available anywhere?

I thought he did a really fantastic job in the part honestly- definitely some echoes of Joe Byrne there, which can't be a bad thing. Like Joe a few years down the line... mmm.
But yeah I thought he was a believable, gritty, and well worth watching again for his acting alone :)
The first time round I have to confess that there was some confusion about the plot in my mind. I struggled to see the consistent story line and felt it got a bit lost in too many details that went nowhere. Not helped by a dud copy that meant we missed a bit in the middle and my French not being quite up to translating subtitles fast when that was needed. I think there WERE a few extraneous characters and plot lineshonestly, but on the whole it is a really worthwhile film and I am looking forward to sitting down with Brian again.
Came looking for screen caps the next morning and there's not many are there?
Best thing of his I have seen for a LONG time!

Yeah,I agree...as I said before I fell in love with Brian since the beginning,is a great character,though I loved him very much so as Romeo too,he was just wonderful.His last performances are outstanding but I don't think that it's only a matter or become a better actor,it has a lot to do with an improvement in his characters choices...May he continue in that way for a long time.

Yes,it seems the caps are gone,must be some problem with Mithriel's imagehost...

Thats a shame! I can see that there'd be some worth working on
My NEW copy arrived today. Hopefully this one will work properly. Aren't you the same region as us Brits Gem?? Can order one and send it over if you want me to. I can imagine that you might rather like it heheeheh.
It was interesting to watch Zulu and Ned Kelly together, striking how young Orlando was back then, and yet for me too a quality in these roles that allows him to shine.

My copy is perfect,and I'd gladly send one to Gem,but this is a matter of geography,we europeans are region 2,Australia,New Zealand and Argentina are region 4... is a real pain in the neck,but surely there some money matters behind...

It really is stupid with the different regions...

I did order 'Haven' from Argentina way back when - hey Nel, any news of 'Zulu' DVDs your way??
