The Great Barrier - Silent Barriers
21 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I bought a copy of the "Silent Barriers" 5 years ago. I always thought there was no difference between "The Great Barrier" and "Silent Barriers" but in title only until a week ago I had the privilege of viewing "The Great Barrier". "The Great barrier" is almost 20 minutes longer that the "Silent Barriers" with a lot of important scenes to the plot of the story left in. I found "The Great Barrier" story line to flow whereas the "Silent Barriers" left out a lot of an answered questions. "The Great Barrier" I found was an interesting and entertaining movie for both classic movie viewers and railway buffs. A must see.
