Set the snooze alarm!
28 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The problem with this expose' is it doesn't really explain anything. It just tells you stories of people who fell victim to the inquisition. There is no revelation about the inquisition and it's perpetrators. You're just watching one story after another without any significant details including the horrors of their punishments and executions.

I watched most of this then shut if off. This was geared for children in early middle school who it will also certainly put to sleep but, prepare them for the more gruesome reality they will encounter as their education in history progresses. The details of why this was going on however are just disregarded so it leaves any viewer with no background on this history, fumbling in the dark.

Save it for the 6th graders, this is really boring material.
