The waterfalls rate 5 stars, production values are amateur

"I am a long time visitor to Kauai and consider my visits explorations rather than vacation trips. I expected a lot more from this release. The video and audio editing between the waterfall scenes is not very smooth and I wanted to hear the natural sounds of each falls. Some have cheesy music only. Too bad the production crew did not record and use the sound of each of their subjects. Do not expect a PBS documentary here, just some stunning natural beauty of one of the world's most scenic islands."
Good photography marred by an obligatory music soundtrack

"The selection and photography of approximately fifteen Kauai waterfalls is generally well-done, though at times over-bright, and the footage of the monk seals is charming. The main detraction from this DVD is the music soundtrack: the New-Age type music is pleasant but completely eclipses the sound of the waterfalls. Viewers should have been given the additional option of a soundtrack that features only the waterfalls themselves."
