Excellent feature length account of this disaster
9 May 2006 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Although I missed the first half-hour of Krakatoa: The Last Days, I saw the final hour and soon got into it.

It tells the story of the distructuon of Krakatoa blowing its top and the aftermath in its wake. There was massive explosions that could be heard thousands of miles away, tsunamis and a huge cloud of ash from the final explosion.

The lighthouse featured in this gets destroyed by a huge tidal wave and we see how a ship copes on the rough seas. Luckily, all survive.

The special effects in this are fantastic, especially the scenes where Krakatoa is erupting.

Well done to the BBC for bringing us this.

For another version of this disaster, I recommend 1969's Krakatoa, East of Java with Maximilian Schell and Diane Baker.
