Naval Sham Battle at Newport (1900)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This Edison films runs just 94-seconds but it's full of action and excitement. The camera is stationed pretty far back on land as we see a group of men by the waterfront doing battle with some ships trying to get close to the land. That's pretty much the "story" here but this film contains a lot of great action and all of it is perfectly captured. The camera is pretty far back so we don't get to see anything close but there's still a lot going on here and with the camera so far back it at least manages to capture everything going on. I think film buffs are really going to enjoy this as there's really a lot of action here including in the background you can see a bridge being destroyed in good detail. There are various forms of battles being done and just take a look at the sequence towards the end when a large group of people on the ground take off running.
