Movie Reviews

Save Your Money
A Diver | NJ United States | 02/18/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The 58 minute video has some captain sitting at a desk, holding his coffee cup and reading off a teleprompter. He rattles off rules of the road, lights, day flags and chart info with very little graphics or video of boats performing the functions. I couldn't keep up with the difference between inland/coastal/international horn or bell sounds.
I've seen better productions on local cable access channels.
If I had found this DVD in the $4.99 rack at Walmart, I still would have felt I paid too much."
Same as the older VHS Video - Incomplete and dated

"This is a copy of the older VHS tape and appears to have been made at least 15+ years ago. The referenced navigation texts by Mr. Gonder are no longer in print. Unfortunately, the approach is to recite rather than to teach. Complex subjects are covered in haste. No summaries are made for detailed subjects like lighting or signals. The only purpose this tape served was to convince me to allocate more preparation time for the test, which I appreciated. Recommend some of the newer versions by Magic Lamp's Safe Boating Series.
Not a very good vidio/DVD.

"This is not what it's presented to be to me. It's a fast talking lecture with a few flash-in pictures. Some of it is not even in color as you would expect for what it cost."
Worst money I ever spent...

"I should have read the reviews. This video is the equivalent of trying to cram 4 years of higher education into 58 minutes. The "Reader" (instructor) blows through topics so quickly that you're still mentally on the first topic when the end credits are rolling. Only the Micro-Machine commercial guy could have blown through this faster. It should be illegal to sell something this bad.

If you're trying to take a short cut to your captain's license, don't do it. Sign up for a REAL USCG class. They're expensive, but only about 10 times the cost of this over-priced steaming pile. I wouldn't even check this out for free from the local library. I have wasted 58 minutes of my life. Is there a rating less than one star?"
