Movie Reviews

A superbly produced, informed and informative NOVA televisio
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 08/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some 13,000 years ago a great many mammals suddenly died out in a brief period of time. "Last Extinction: What Killed The Mammoths?" is a superbly produced, informed and informative NOVA television episode that explores an iconoclastic theory behind the sudden demise of mammoths, giant ground sloths, saber-tooth cats, and American lions. The trigger for this catastrophic event is speculated to be a comet breaking up over North America and resulting in widespread forest fires that wiped out plants, animals, and even pre-historic humans. Archaeological evidence is identified and discussed in depth, along with the contributing theories of climate change and the end of the Ice Age as causes of the disappearance of so many species of large mammal. Informed and informative, and with this 56 minute DVD format including such special features as printable materials for educators, scene selection, and access to the NOVA web site, "Last Extinction" is a highly recommended addition to school and community library collections."
