Didn't do much for me
28 February 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Destiny in Space" is a 40-minute documentary film from over 20 years ago and it always baffles and amuses me to see short works like this that have so many directors, 4 in this case. Anyway, I am not too big on astronomy in general, especially when it comes to space exploration and humans entering areas that they were never supposed to enter. That is why I did not feel anything of significance while watching this one. I cannot say anything about the late Leonard Nimoy as narrator as I watched the German version, but even a great narrator like Morgan Freeman probably could not have saved this one from being bland and ordinary for me. if you have another take on space exploration, then you will like this one, maybe even love it, so in this case check it out. However, it's not really worth watching for those who don't care about astronomy. Going into space may be exciting. Watching other people do so certainly isn't. Not recommended.
