OK,but loses its focus at times (6.5/10)
23 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

for the most pat,this documentary is pretty decent's mainly about the German juggernaut war ship Bismark and it's gives a bit of a brief history of the ship.the some battle scenes are shown,many computer animated.the ship is shown as it sinks int the water under a barrage of British fire from most of the British fleet.meanwhile James Cameron and his crew prepare to explore the wreckage of the ship on the sea floor,using two submersibles.the footage of the ship 61 years almost to the day that it was sunk is pretty get a real idea of how massive and well built the ship was.Cameron's crew were also able to enter the ship through many different holes,some caused by enemy get an idea of what the inside of the was like.along with Cameron and company are two survivors of the sinking.there are a few things I didn't like is that they never really had the two survivors relate much of their story,which would have been nice.another thing is i felt it took too long to get to the point where they were exploring the wreckage.also instead of letting the viewing just enjoy what they are seeing,sometimes Cameron and crew throw in some "ooh" and "ahh" comments.the documentary focuses a bit too much on the scientists and the technicians,which is not really interesting.there are a few scenes i thought they could have left out,which had very little to do with anything.other than that,though,it wasn't too bad.the computer animation was outstanding.i should qualify this by saying that this version is a two disc set,which contains special of the feature is called Behind the Scenes,which has a featurette entitled Survivors.i haven't watched any of the features,but this one presumably focuses on the two survivors who are with the in depth,i don't know.either way,though that footage should have been included in the actual feature.for me Expedition Bismark is a 6/10
