Movie Reviews

Lightning, Lightning, Lightning!
R. Crawford | Alaska | 08/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Along with National Geographic, Nova consistently produces the best science programs on the market. In addition to the more current "Hunt for the Supertwister" (also from Nova), this is a fascinating look at one of nature's most beautiful yet frightening phenomenon. Not only does the program explain the hows and whys of lightning but it also goes along with a number of scientists to follow their research into the nature and genesis of lightning. Of particular note are the scientists in Florida and New Mexico who fire rockets into the heart of a thunderstorm in an effort to "capture" nature's electical fireworks. Fascinating footage that always gets the attention of my students Great program for educational use as well as the general public. Fine narration by Al Roker, who also did the excellent PBS series "Savage Skies" Highly recommended."
Good Doco
Frank Gross III | 01/13/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This was a good lightning doco. I thought there would be a lot more shots of lightning in the sky and I was disappointed that there wasn't more. I wanted video shots of lightning to use in a personal video project totalling 6 minutes. There wasn't 6 minutes of video lighting ( out of over 50 minutes documentary time) in the Doco. Still, it was a good documentary. I'll go to UTUBE now that I have discovered it."
