An Amazing Documentary
22 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WIth superb direction, great interview subjects, amazing subject matter, and great soundtrack, this film has everything a good film needs.

I knew a little bit about The Rock-afire Explosion before seeing this film, but afterwards, I love them and admire the companies and people who created this great film.

Aaron Fechter (The Rock-afire's inventor) is a very intelligent man and it is clear, through the film, that we have not seen the last of him. Besides his work with The Rock-afire on YouTube, he also has many projects in development.

I would highly recommend this DVD. It's a must have DVD for the holidays!
