Movie Reviews

Very In-Depth
Richard Byers | Astoria, OR United States | 04/28/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an extremely in-depth look at the Civil War and covers many topics quite thoroughly. A minor gripe I had: while the use of reenactments of battles is not necessarily a bad thing (I'm a reenactor myself), when they use the same scenes over & over & over for many different battles it can get tiresome after a while! 3 1/2 stars."
Poorly Produced Documentary
Joe Hoskinson | San Francisco, CA | 05/01/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this set for $5 at a major chain store. I must say it's barely worth what I paid. It's poorly produced and the editing is shotty at best. The voicover and historical value is the only redeeming quality this set offers.

The re-enactments are not to my liking, but they're tolerable (when the same scenes aren't being repeated and repeated!)

Here's the kick...The credit segments at the end of each episode are over 2 minutes...what's up with that! So many credited people couldn't spin a decent product? This will never be shown on anything but some public access channel. Buy at your own risk.
