The Forerunner of the "Extra Bonus Supplement!"
19 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Released back in the early 90s on the Widescreen VHS Box-set, this 20-minute documentary was one of the first "Extra features" that now seem to be taking over the DVD industry.

As an owner of this set for over a decade, I can say that I think I've watched this 4th tape a total of 2 or 3 times. As with all bonus stuff, the novelty soon wears off, and after you have seen the 3 or 4 cut scenes, you just end up cursing at the overacted introduction and pointless links by the has-been host.

I sometimes worry that so much focus and attention is paid to these features: they are unrewarding and never come close to bringing the excitement that they promise- and this one is a prime example of something that never lives up to the hype. The interviews do provide some insight into the special effects, but all of this has been available in text form on websites anyway (where you can also copy/paste/print/zoom/etc). So if you were a fan you would already know it all.
