The main question the documentary is asking itself (and the user) is "are we discussing science or philosophy?". I am inclined to choose the last option since almost none of the presented statements have been or ever can be verified.
The documentary consist of a lot of talking, mostly sharing opinions.
An opinion is nice, but please keep it real and on track with facts. In addition, the documentary tents to repeat it self, not once but numerous times, which I found a bit annoying and cheap.
Also the discussion of the string theory kicks of after lets say 2 hours, so be prepared to sit out the first 2 hours seeing through the birth of the string theory and the history of Albert Einstein's career.
Overall conclusion: it is a boring documentary, it provides you with a lot of opinions. I did not learn much and left with a feeling of dissatisfaction, though it did succeed to make me more skeptical regarding the so called string theory and its 11 dimensions.
I rated it a six, barely.
