Dated, but a MUST for volcano enthusiasts!!!

"The Krafft's pair of volcano documentaries are a must-have for volcano enthusiasts. The video is fantastic and the audio hasn't been wholy substituted with music or commentary - it's totally cool to actually get the hear the eruptions as well as see them. The second documentary is the best in terms of continuity and contains fabulous footage of pillow basalt formation underwater at Réunion Island.My only disappointment with these documentaries is that they are somewhat dated in terms of commentary and the editing is rather abrupt - leaving you wondering about certain volcanoes and outcomes. Some pieces of the best footage are repeated a few times within the first documentary as well. This material begs for a fresh commentary and editing - this would create a superb film out of the excellent original."
