Naughtia N (it) wrote: I remember that we had this movie on VHS and that I really liked watching it when I was younger. I remember it being very entertaining at the time. Sinbad stars as a con artist who is trying to hide from some mobsters. In an airport he gets mistakenly befriended by a geek lawyer who thinks he's a long lost childhood friend. He becomes a house gest and makes himself comfortable in the lawyer's home and really gets to know his family and neighbors. This movie is very funny and well suited to watch with your family, I know I loved to watch it back then.

Lenny R (au) wrote: John Glen's first of a record five Bonds gives us Rodge's most serious performance overall, though there are still some raised eyebrows from time to time. Carole Bouquet is fantastic in her brooding turn as Melina, giving us one of relatively few truly distinctive and three-dimensional 'girls' up to this point. She really makes us feel for the character on her mission to avenge her slaughtered parents. Glover and Topol are great too as Kristatos and Columbo respectively. Both characters are interesting as individuals, and their rivalry gives the film's story a truly unique feel. Lynn-Holly Johnson is a bit grating at times, but she's a skater, not an actor, so she does OK considering. Cassandra Harris (for some reason) sounds more Australian than Liverpudlian, but is otherwise all right. Considering the story is comprised of a combination of short stories and bits taken from other books, this is actually a pretty decent effort, with some good action and dialogue, and a harder edge than the previous couple of cartoons.
Ola G (au) wrote: In 1879, a communiqu from Lord Chelmsford to the Secretary of State for War in London, details the crushing defeat of a British force at the hands of the Zulus at the Battle of Isandlwana. In the aftermath of the battle, the victorious Zulus walk amongst the scattered bodies of dead British soldiers and gather their rifles. At a mass Zulu marriage ceremony witnessed by missionary Otto Witt (Jack Hawkins) and his daughter (Ulla Jacobsson), Zulu King Cetewayo (Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi) is also informed of the great victory earlier in the day. A company of the British Army's 24th Regiment of Foot, is using the missionary station of Rorke's Drift in Natal as a supply depot and hospital for their invasion force across the border in Zululand. Receiving news of Isandhlwana from the Natal Native Contingent Commander Adendorff, who warns that an army of 4,000 Zulu warriors is advancing to the British position, senior officer Lieutenant John Chard (Stanley Baker) of the Royal Engineers assumes command of the small British detachment. Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead (Michael Caine), an infantry officer, is rather put out to find himself subordinate to an engineer due to the latter's slightly earlier commission. Realising that they cannot outrun the Zulu army with wounded soldiers, Chard decides to fortify the station and make a stand, using wagons, sacks of mealie, and crates of ship's biscuit to form a defensive perimeter. Witt becomes drunk and demoralises the men with his dire predictions, causing the soldiers of the Natal Native Contingent to desert. Chard orders him to be locked in a supply room. The soldiers begin to feel nervous when they hear a strange beating sound coming towards them. They realise the sound is the Zulu army. Although the army is not yet in sight, they hear the sound of the Zulus beating their shields with spears. Bromhead says 'it sounds like a train in the distance'. As the impis approach, a contingent of Boer horsemen arrives. They advise Chard that defending the station is hopeless. They retreat in haste, despite Chard's desperate pleas for them to stay. The Zulu army, having formed a line of attack along the Oscarberg, approach to within 100 yards (91m) of the station, ominously rattle their spears against their shields, and then charge. The British open fire and manage to kill at least 60, but Adendorff informs them that the Zulus are testing the British firepower. Witt again predicts the soldiers' inevitable fate, before escaping the battle with his daughter; this causes further demoralization of the defenders. Chard is concerned that the northern perimeter wall is undermanned but realises that the attack will come from all sides. The defenders are surprised when the Zulu warriors open fire on the station with rifles, taken from the British casualties at Isandlwana. Zulu fire inflicts minimal casualties but further affects the morale of the British defenders. Throughout the day and night, wave after wave of Zulu attackers are repelled. The Zulus succeed in setting fire to the hospital, leading to intense fighting between British patients and Zulu warriors as the former try to escape the flames. Private Henry Hook (James Booth) takes charge and successfully leads the patients to safety.The next morning, the Zulus approach to within several hundred yards and begin singing a war chant; the British respond by singing "Men of Harlech". In the final assault, just as it seems the Zulus will finally overwhelm the tired defenders, the British soldiers fall back to a small redoubt constructed out of mealie bags. With a reserve of soldiers hidden within the redoubt, they form into three firing ranks, and seamlessly pour volley after volley into the waves of attacking warriors, inflicting heavy casualties. Finally the remainder of the Zulu forces withdraw. After sustaining no attacks for three hours, the defenders are still recovering when the Zulus re-form again on the Oscarberg. Resigned to their imminent defeat, the British are astonished when the Zulus instead sing a song to honour the bravery of the defenders before peacefully withdrawing..."Zulu" is one of those epic lavish costume dramas from the 60s and its nicely shot with beautiful sceneries and strong performances from the actors including a young Michael Caine. Michael Caine, who at this early stage in his career was primarily playing bit parts, was originally up for the role of Private Henry Hook, which went to James Booth. According to Caine, he was extremely nervous during his screen test for the part of Bromhead, and director Cy Endfield told him that it was the worst screen test he had ever seen, but they were casting Caine in the part anyway because the production was leaving for South Africa shortly and they had not found anyone else for the role. And despite the fact that the director took some creative freedom with the true story, this is yet a powerful piece with historic roots. Most of the characters in the film were based on actual participants of the battle, but their behaviour is mostly fictional - something that has provoked disapproval: in an interview on the DVD, the descendants of Private Hook objected to his portrayal as a thief and malingerer (although his character acts bravely near the end of the film during some desperate fighting). Indeed, Hook's elderly daughters walked out of the film's 1964 London premiere. My only objection to "Zulu" is the quite "theatrical" battle scenes that hardly convince anyone in 2014.
Phoebe C (ca) wrote: really enjoyed this although the way that this story is told may not be for everyone. it is not told in chronological order and the whole film feels like a dream. to me, this way of storytelling made the film great and kept this movie interesting because you want to know more. this kept me invested because I did not always know where the film was headed as its not a regular, generic romantic film. i loved the characters and the film was well acted. however, the film highlights that the events in this film are occurring in "parallel universes". I did not exactly feel like it needed that because it didn't have much of an affect on me, it simply felt like watching fragments of a couple's 6 year relationship.

Jennifer E (ag) wrote: The first half of this was just plain annoying. I got really tired of "Bijou and Mikey", the arguing and acting stupid. It was a senseless idea to go searching for someone who had been missng for that long, with very little chance, if any--of survivng. And the worst thing was, their motive was money. I think the reviews are a little off here for the gore factor. Bijou's death was done nicely, but I'd like to see a little more into the tribe.
