Movie Reviews

Lacking in detail
Randall Eicher | McKinney, TX | 03/23/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This disc in the series covers the Panther but the video actually provides very little detail about the Panther itself, providing only a cursory overview of the history of why the Panther was developed in a hurry and a very sketchy outline of the course of the war with video of primarily of Panthers as they make vague references to the part played by the Panther. There is very little detail on the actual development history, design and performance and nothing of significance on actual engagements.

Overall a disappointment, especially compared to some of the others in the series,particularly the discs on the armored cars and the artillery."
Better off...

"You're better off purchasing "Panzer - Germany's Ultimate War Machine". It has much more interesting footage. There is very little detail in this Panther title. Much of the dvd is devoted to the opening stages of Barbarossa & very little on the Panther itself. What little detail there is consists of mostly still photos & frequently reproduced footage. Nothing new or interesting here...
Not enough footage of Panther, too much filler

"The main complaint a viewer would have of this video is that there is not enough footage of the Panther itself. Fully 25% of the video in this dvd covers Barbarosa. In some respect some pre-Panther DVD would be needed relating to how the Panther came about (i.e., in response to larger Soviet tanks met in Barbarosa, especially the T-34). Even overlooking this, there is still not enough footage in this dvd to justify the attention or time of someone really interested in footage of this video. With respect to informational content this DVD, like most of the "War Archives" series of DVDs, is quite rudimentary. For even a novice, the information is quite basic. Only for someone with no or almost no knowledge of the vehicle would any of the facts presented in this video really have anything new to say. In the same amount of time as the video (about 1 hour), one could read one of the Osprey series of books on the Panther. Although these do not present any in-depth information regarding the vehicle, the information presented is certainty more than in this DVD."
