Interesting but lacks participation
19 January 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This documentary is tough to view since it's split onto the three separate discs (rather than being put on a 4th Disc with the other Back to the Future supplements). It's enlightening and provides some interesting retrospective, but unfortunately, it suffers from a lack of participation from the cast and crew. All we hear from are writer/producer Bob Gale, director Robert Zemeckis, and Michael J. Fox. Overall, covering three films in 45 minutes is pretty difficult, and after the long wait for BTTF to come to DVD, I feel a little bit slighted. Would have liked to hear from the other actors, like Christopher Lloyd, Tom Wilson, and Lea Thompson, and exec producer Steven Spielberg.
