Movie Reviews

A lot more than expected
Allen Charles Cacioppo | Ca. USA | 10/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is almost 6 hours of entertainment, which is incidentally educational. The production value is excellent, and the story lines and narration are enjoyable as well. I highly recommend this DVD simply for the high amount of quality and quantity included,in it's well told semi-documentary style."
Quite good
Robert | New York, NY United States | 11/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I thought this might be an interesting documentary but was very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the dramatizations. The Hoover Dam and Brooklyn Bridge segments complimented, rather than duplicated, other documentaries I'd seen and the London sewer episode- which I thought would be a snore- was fascinating. I'm eagerly hoping there will be a volume 2."
Very Well Done!
Kevin R. Oppendike | Midwestern US | 07/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great set of shows. It is almost 100% dramatic re-creations but very well done. It is put together as if modern documentary film crews were on the scene for the creation of these impressive engineering marvels. The acting is first rate and other than the occasional use of an obvious CGI effect the re-creations are very well done. If you enjoy reading about how these monumental engineering feats were done you will enjoy "seeing" parts of it on this video. This is all based on factual information an often truth is stranger than fiction. I wish the BBC would do additional shows of the same type for DVD release."
