I'm probably not the only one to notice that the film Gladiator uses soundtrack from Zulu in its battle scene? The war cries of the Germanic tribes sound remarkably familiar! Listen carefully at about 2 minutes in to the sound of the tribes in the background.

A bit cheeky for a Hollywood Blockbuster...

i noticed this as well when i saw it. apparently Ridley Scott is a massive Zulu fan and used this as a kind of tribute! Wink

Sorry to digress - and please put this down to my not knowing how to start links - but on the subject of soundtracks, I was watching Quentin Tarantino's "Inglorious Bas##ds" yesterday and there is a scene where the Fuhrer and nazis are watching a propoganda movie about a Nazi sniper and believe it or not, the accompanying music is the bit of music we hear in Zulu Dawn when the Zulus seize the 24th's colours. s Mr Tarantino referencing ZD as he sometimes references other movies?!

Hi 90th / everybody,

You would have thought that a Hollywood budget could stretch to an original soundtrack, so it being a subtle tribute makes sense!

And that's an interesting observation from Quint too. Thanks.

After a quick web search I can confirm that Tarantino did use "Zulus" by Elmer Bernstein as part of the soundtrack of "Inglorious Bast''''s" - so seems we have another AZW enthusiast among the great and good. That's the music from "Zulu Dawn" by the way. Imagine "Zulu Dawn II" as directed by Tarantino - with Harvey Keitel as Chelmsford, Bruce Willis as Durnford, John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson as Coghill & Melvill, and Marcellus Wallace as Cetewayo! I imagine it could get a bit violent.
