The British Army battles a Thuggee uprising in colonial India.
There are action movies, there are good action movies, and there is George Stevens' 1939 GUNGA DIN, the greatest action movie ever filmed. 

"God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far- flung battle line
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine-
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget- Lest we forget."

Kipling today may be somewhat neglected but he is deservedly unforgotten by many readers capable of learning from and enjoying his fine poetry.
