Movie Reviews

Very good documentary, but more about atomic bomb than the E
Gregory T. Hallett | Huntersville, NC | 07/23/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This very well done documentary from the history channel focuses more on the development and aftermath of the atomic bomb more than on the Enola Gay itself. With the title being Enola Gay I expected much more about the plane and crew itself, instead this is more a documentary on the atomic bomb itself than on the airplane.

It is well done with interviews and actual footage of the bombings themselves. The reenactments are a bit hokey in my opinion and could have been done better.

I would highly recommend this DVD overall as there is a wealth of information contained within it."

"This Video/CD was called "Rain of Ruin" when it was shown on the History Channel. It shows the history of the Manhattan Project/Silverplate from start to finish. The last 30 minutes deal with the dropping of "little boy" on Hiroshima and "Fat man" on Nagasaki. Most people do not know that Nagaskai was actually the 4th choice of cities but weather prevented the dropping of the bomb on target # 2 which was Kokura. This film uses a tremendous amount of raw footage. Its very impressive."
