Movie Reviews

Loyd E. Eskildson | Phoenix, AZ. | 09/21/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

""The FBI Crime Lab" provided little specifics on how its equipment worked, and was slow-moving and boring.

The DVD began describing its new facility (4X the size of former space) in Quantico, VA., costing $150 million, using nearly 700 employees, and taking in about 600 pieces of evidence/day. The FBI started forensics services in 1932.

Viewers then receive a brief overview of the lab's various units: Firearms and Tool Marks, Explosives Unit, Latent Print Unit (utilizes 80 different processes for finding and examining prints), DNA Unit (both nuclear (2 copies/cell) and mitochondrial (many more copies/cell), Chemistry and Trace Evidence Unit (eg. hairs, fibers, etc.), and its Hazardous Scene Response Units (protective suits, robots)."
Interesting history, not good for school

"I really liked this DVD. I thought it was very interesting to learn about the history of the FBI crime lab. The DVD goes though several different units within the FBI crime lab, including ballistics, trace, and DNA. I bought it to show in my forensics classroom, but the students were not impressed with it. I guess it's for an older age group."

"History Channel brings very informative subjects to our livingrooms.We need more of this and less T.V. We sat with rapt attention looking at this movie.I felt it was very worthwhile in money and time !"
