A gripping and shocking documentary composed of numerous colorized archive footage. Apocalypse: Verdun takes us to the infamous and bloody battle of Verdun that occurred in February 1916, when World War I had been raging for two years.
Looks exactly like one of the new crap History Channel shows.
This comes across exactly like a History Channel produced show, with a combination of history, CGI, and reality TV style fake drama.
A few years ago someone at the History Channel got a new computer. Suddenly all their history shows looked exactly the same, with phony computer generated tank battles, CGI plane battles, CGI ship battles, etc. This looks like it was done on the same computer. Same overly dramatic music, same need to create drama, same inability to just tell the viewers what happened and why. It's history. It has already happened. Just tell the viewers what happened, why it happened, and how it happened. If you have footage, include it. If I want to watch a fictional drama based on history I'll watch a movie.
Not worthy of PBS.
