Nothing new, alas
It sounds like a B Movie title but it’s not. At least it’s not supposed to be. It’s a new way of looking at the events of WW II, offering a global perspective of land, territories and battles.

It’s very USA-centric – guess who made it – and starts with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour which brings America into the war. Ok, let’s go with that.

However, it skips backwards and forwards in time to look at various events of the war. This is annoying at best and is confusing. How much better if it had simply followed a linear path and let us see how the war developed as it played out.

Given the limitations of a movie’s length, however, it is very much a potted history so there’s nothing radically new or in depth here.

The view from space is a nice idea to help visualise the global scale of the conflict. However, often when dots flash up on a swiftly-rotating globe of the world to highlight cities and countries, far from illumination, they’re simply blobs in a fog because some landmasses are obscured by cloud! As it’s CGI-generated this is folly beyond redemption. Someone obviously thought it added a sense of realism but it simply detracts from the movie’s admirable goal. Not all scenes are like this, just enough to spoil some of the movie’s intent.

Essentially, it’s just another WW II documentary. It has nothing new to add, it’s very USA-dominated and it doesn’t achieve what it sets out to do particularly well.

CGI Inaccuracies in First Five Minutes Doom This Show
A friend of mine who is a World War Two history buff like myself texted me that this show was on and urged me to watch, so I found it and started. While I found the concept of tracing the progress of the War from space intriguing, inaccuracies from the very beginning quickly soured me on the show. The program opens with the attack on Pearl Harbor (neatly ignoring the fact that the War had been raging for over two years at that point). Initially I was impressed with the graphics, but I soon noticed several things that made no sense. Firstly, the scene showed a Japanese Zero fighter perform some sort of acrobatic maneuver and then release a bomb, the bomb that destroyed the battleship Arizona. In reality, it was a Japanese Kate torpedo bomber being used in a level bomber role that dropped the bomb. As the bomb fell, the smaller ship next to the Arizona came into view. However, instead of that other ship being the repair ship Vestal, the CGI image appeared to be a sort of scaled down battleship, complete with turrets. Moments later, as the narrator talked about the missed opportunity of catching the American carriers at Pearl, the CGI image that was supposed to be the Enterprise was instead that of a later Essex class carrier. With all of these inaccuracies hurting my brain in the first five minutes of the show, I snapped it off.

To some, the things I’ve pointed out might seem trivial to the telling of the overarching story of the Second World War. However, to me, if the producers had the budget to create such an elaborate show, there’s no excuse to miss or leave out these details. If the creators of this documentary couldn’t be bothered to get these details right, it tells me they didn’t care enough. This show appeared to be less a labor of love for the creators and more of a cash grab to capitalize on the continuing popularity of World War Two. Could they not have hired a technical advisor to review those scenes and graphics before they were finalized?

While I realize that this show may have been aimed at younger viewers and a more general audience, rather than history buffs like myself, there’s no reason not to get the basic facts right. The basic story of the war is well known and covered in many other documentaries. If you’re going to produce a new show and the focus is going to be on using fancy CGI graphics, getting those graphics right would seem to be important. While many viewers might not notice these things, it’s a show stopper for someone who actually knows a bit about the subject. I can’t recommend this show.
