Storyline

Could the fabled lost city of Atlantis have been located? Using satellite photography, ground-penetrating radar and underwater technology, The film, Finding Atlantis, was screened by the National Geographic Channel in the US and fronted by Professor Richard Freund, from Hartford University in Connecticut. Professor Freund explained how he led a pursuit to find the lost civilisation, believed by many to be an ancient Greek myth, by using deep-ground radar, digital mapping and satellite imagery. He contends that Atlantis, described by Plato in 360BC, in Spain's Donaña National Park, north of Cadiz, and was wiped out by a giant tsunami. Plato wrote it had been destroyed by a natural disaster in 9,000BC. Experts are now surveying marshlands in Spain to look for proof of the ancient city.

Music Distracting
14 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really wanted to watch this. Even if none of it was based on reality. Problem was that the background music was constantly working up to a never achieved crescendo. It made me feel very agitated. I find this happens in potentially boring and badly made documentaries. Why do they think this will make them more interesting. The people that watch them are already interested in the subject otherwise why would they start watching them.

I continue to watch as I type this and it is not getting any better. Hopefully someone else made a movie about Atlantis because I am interested.

I cannot find any more words to complete this review.
