A rare breed; works on both a VFX level and a story level.
22 August 2009 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Many of my fellow VFX nerds would appraise "Heroes and Villains: Attila the Hun" on the basis of its success in terms of bedroom-level special effects. But "Attila" goes one better -- its story is truly engrossing and well-directed, and the quick-turnaround visual effects (about 1.6 shots per day, if the statistics are to be believed) are more than adequate to serve the narrative.

This, then, is the triumph of its director, Gareth Edwards. Here is a man who knows not only how visual effects work, but who also knows how to direct a compelling narrative. In both realms, there are shortcuts to be taken, but there are also ground rules to be observed; Edwards observes the latter element of both.

In doing so he succeeds in making a quality piece of narrative/documentary television which leaves the rest of us nerds in his dust.
