Paging Colin Andrews

"Filmed just prior to the release of the movie "Signs", this documentary is essentially an interview with Colin Andrews interspersed with aerial photos and videos of crop circle formations. The film gives Andrews an opportunity to exonerate himself from the bad press he garnered when he was "set up" as a hoax by the mass media, to review his 20 year career as a circle investigator, and to ruminate about the significance of these phenomena. Included is the rarely seen footage of a crop circle being made in 10 or so seconds while balls of light swirl overhead. The only serious drawback is the presentation of the circles themselves. The viewer is presented with galleries of circle formations that flash by too quickly to actually see much of anything. You have to slow the DVD speed to a virtual standstill (or better yet, pause) in order to linger over individual images. Despite the fact that this film is as much about Andrews as it is about the phenomenon, anyone remotely interested in crop circles should view this documentary."

"I have been seeking an objective documentary about the history of crop circles. This is a buddy video. Peter Robbins is a UFO author/researcher interviewing Colin Andrews on his experiences with crop circles. Lots of talk of cover-ups, conspiracies, mistakes made and the CIA. Not much worthwhile information in the DVD. Disappointing.
In the "extras" section there are some interesting photos.
This DVD is worth about $5.00"

"I was seeking an objective documentary about crop circles. This is not it. This is a buddy-film.
Peter Robbins, noted UFO researcher and author interviews Colin Andrews, noted crop circle researcher and author about conspiracies and cover-ups and personal mistakes made. Chatty interview, not very informative. The only real value in the DVD is the photo gallery located in the "extras" section."
