Movie Reviews

With a Little more Background History, It could have been be
Romulus | 06/26/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a bit of a historian myself, however, in the East Asian Civilizations but I have always been fascinated by the 7 Deadly Sins where they come from and where they take us. However, this format of history telling is a bit too accessible for me. It seems like they feel their audience is bunch of ADD teenagers that'll switch the channel unless they are shocked with another FUN FACT of history. I personally would have preferred it straight up without all the bells and whistles. I liked all the interviews from everyone from Jewish Temples to Mosques and Churches. From Catholic Priests to Faith-Healers and Imams. However, in the end, the focus of the program seems to be more what people thing of the sins now than where they came from. The narrator sounds like that guy Don Fontaine who used to do all those Action movie Trailers making the whole production feel rushed trying (as mentioned above) trying to keep the attention of a very ADD audience.
However, as another reviewer mentioned, [...] for nearly 7 TV hours of history is a bit of a bargain so 3 stars from me."

"I happened to tune in the history channel a while back and got interested in this. I watched this dvd and am so pleased I bought it. When I got to sloth I decided to get up off my back side and do something productive. I would encourage everyone to get this and watch it all, whether one episode at a time or all at once."
An Interesting Buy

"They like to reiterate alot of facts in the video, but it's interesting to see where we stand in terms of Sin."
