Much Better Than it Sounds
Spudman | Pasadena, MD United States | 02/05/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rat Attack has the quality of content and production one would expect from a NOVA production. The viewer follows the efforts of an Australian scientist to discover the hows and whys of an attack of rats on a remote eastern area of India. The appearance of the rats occurs every 48 years and coincides with the blooming and fruiting of the bamboo plants.

I found this video fascinating and it held my interest throughout. For the squeamish, there are several segments that show rat disections, a necessary part of the investigation regarding the massive and fast reproduction of these black rats.

The quality of the video as viewed on my computer's 22" monitor was superb, with excellent color, detail, and clarity."
