Avoit This Movie at All Costs!
1 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an engineer, I was fascinated by the concept of W.I.S.O.R., so I checked this movie out of the NetFlix library in spite of the member reviews I had read.

In spite of all of Michel Negroponte's efforts to obscure anything about the project that might be interesting, I did enjoy the few nuggets that escaped his attention.

I suspect that, perhaps after viewing his raw footage, Michel Negroponte decide that the material was too dry for his intended audience (whoever they may be) and decided to "cheese it up". Whatever his reasons, he did a great disservice to his subjects: W.I.S.O.R., the Engineers who built it, the visionaries at Con. Ed. who funded the project, and the city of New Yourk itself.

I sincerely hope that, some day, another director will undertake the story of W.I.S.O.R. and tell it in a straightforward fashion.

Until that happens, please, please, please do not see this movie!
