"This was very disappointing as it is all just an interview with an author sitting on his lounge....became very boring !"

"Wallace Murphy appears to be a man of great experience and wisdom who certainly has impressive credentials relating to the subject matter of "The Real Bloodline". All of this is lost in the production of this DVD. You have to wonder why someone of Mr. Wallace's stature would be a part of such an amateur production. Could it be that there is a "Da Murphy Code" shrouded in the DVD? Could it be that the "Da Murphy Code" cannot sell unless it is entwined with "The Da Vinci Code"?
The production of this DVD is no better than that of a high school student creating a DVD for a school assignment beginning the effort 18 hours before the due date. Background music fades in and out with no real function that often obscures what is being said by Mr. Murphy. The video cuts from color to black and white; an apparent attempt to divert attention from the lack luster setting. Images are superimposed over the speaker from time to time, which surely are connected but are not woven into the presentation leaving the viewer to wonder exactly their purpose.
The biggest disappoint with "The Real Bloodline" is the interview itself. Mr. Murphy is asked a serious of questions that broadly outline the subject matter; rambling on with little structure and no follow up. What is offered is a few interesting points for the viewer to ponder, nothing more.
Like so many of us who struggled through High School, our last minute reports started out with one idea and ended with another. The DVD carries the title of "The Real Bloodline" but fails to cover this subject. Mr. Murphy dismisses the bloodline story as interesting but not important. What is important to Mr. Murphy is his personal spirituality, which he shares with the viewer. I do not doubt Mr. Murphy's sincerity or the effort he has put into his spiritual quest. Unfortunately, his grade is F because he did not complete the assignment. Perhaps if the assignment had been to give a report on "The Da Murphy Code" a better grade could have been obtained.
Truly an eye opener.

"Leaves THE DA VINCI CODE far, far behind in the dust. Philip Gardiner interviews Mr. Tim Wallace-Murphy, a fascinating man you can't help but want to invite to your next dinner party. This guy could read the phone book and make it seem epic and mysterious. More than once I wrote some of his claims down while watching, so that I could research them on my own. A few trips to the library later I was able to vouch for Mr. Wallace. There are oodles of little known facts contained on this DVD, facts that you'd otherwise have to spend days in the back of the library sifting through dusty manuscripts to discover. Absolutely engrossing."
