Movie Reviews

One man's sweep of history
Politix Fan | 04/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This NBC News DVD reminds us of the incredible impact that Pope John Paul II has had on the world. The main feature is an comprehensive biography, tracing the Pope's remarkable life from his boyhood in Poland and the horrors of WWII, through to his amazing Papacy. Reporter Keith Morrison does a great job giving us not only the facts of John Paul's life, but showing how events in his life shaped his worldview and his faith. The bonus features show the real strength of a DVD by an outfit like NBC News -- segments featuring NBC Vatican correspondent Keith Miller take us back through the Pope's many travels, and bring us inside the top levels of John Paul's Vatican. Other bonus content examine a Today Show visit with the Pope; John Paul's crusade to restore the Sistine Chapel; and the many fascinating figures awarded "sainthood" during John Paul's long Papacy. John Paul was a sometimes-controversial, always-larger-than-life figure on the world stage, and this NBC News production does justice to all aspects of his legacy."

"Really interesting DVD. I couldn't believe NBC News put this out... but then again I'm not surprised because of the terrific storytelling."
Not quite what I was looking for ...

"Frankly, I was looking for some of the great coverage of John Paul II's life and papacy that aired on most of the networks during the days they covered his death and funeral. This wasn't it. It was good info. if you're looking to add to your John Paul II collection. But if you're looking for the really insirational stuff about him drawing the largest crowds on earth and his last days ... you'll have to look somewhere else. I guess I could have noticed the dvd's release date too."

"This is another terrific DVD on the life of Pope John Paul II. I have several now and I must say that it is certainly worth the money. If you are a fan of the Pope, go ahead and get this DVD and add it to your collection. This DVD will warm your heart whether you are a Christian or not. John Paul II is a giant of our time and this DVD serves his memory very well."
