Worst in the trilogy
I saw the first to series, and i was very impressed. So i was quite shocked when i learned that there was a third in the series. I was shocked, because i hadn't heard of it, and it had been around for some time, when i finally saw it.
The first view of it confirmed my prejudges about the whole thing. First of all it did not use all of the cast, who was still alive - they could not afford many of the actors. Which explain why we never see Orry Main (Patrick Swayze's character) from the front. He is stabbed in the back by Elkanah Bent - who actually blew up with a lot explosives, gunpowder and dynamite. But they brought him back to life as they do in all series with no respect for it self. But this is a genre which should take it self serious. But at that point i knew they had hired, at best, second hand people to do this project.
Simple the beginning you could see that it was a B-series, it was very ugly shot. Very poorly. It broke the shooting-style from the first 2 series, and that is very amateurish. No wonder why i never heard of it, in the first place, no one wants to acknowledge this "TV-series". Man, it is poor.
All the poor, TV-studio-smoke, and the out-of-style-light really ruined the start for me, but it wasn't over yet. In the 2 first series we had a good impression of the Main family, but they ruined all that in the 3rd series. Madeline moved back to mont Royal after Orry died. OK, i understand that. Then she wants to help some black people there. But now the worst part of it all comes: Orrys big brother!!!!! If you have seen the first 2 series, you'll know how silly and retarded that sounds, but it is true, an older Main is introduced. We have never heard of an older Main, and never had the impression that Orry was none other that the oldest sibling in the bunch. But they changed that. But if this was the 18th century, which it is, the oldest son should have taken the place which Orry has in series 1 and 2, but he never did. And he was never mentioned. Which only indicates that the character is the invention of some untalented writer or more likely untalented producer, only for sake of creating drama, on the expense of reason and brains. This older brother (which i have forgotten his name, and don't want to look him up) wants mont royal from Madeline, who recognizes the older brother, which indicates that they have spoken in the context of series 1 and 2...... MEGA PLOT HOLE. Madeline doesn't give him it. The older brother gets entangled in the Klu Klux Klan, which of course leads to confrontation with Madeline - who now helps black people all the time.
Meanwhile Elkanah Bent kills more people from the old series in a most dramatic, but distasteful way. Kills George Hazzards wife, while he visits Madeline. Really poorly written and shoot. Plus the producers use narration, which is a reel departure from the shooting and acting style of the first 2 series. This is a very poor series - The untalented producers turned this series into Horror/fetish-B-series.
The Horror - The Horror - The Horror
Cant remember that much more of this particular series, it was so poor. Cant remember the ending, it is not that important anyway. What is important is to warn future generations of this series.
Cant still believe that they even got some of the original actors to be in this series: the producers must have promised them something good. Or maybe the actors wanted to relive some of the well-earned success of the first 2 series.
Anyway: The first 2 series was so uplifting, this series ruins some of that feeling.
Don't watch this series, it is awful and very poor. If you do want to watch it: then bring water - to wash your eyes.
I still hope that someone will invent a drug that can make me forget this series.
Alex Jones is an amateur filmmaker, who makes poor conspiracy theories straight for the Internet, in his spare time. I thought he had his lowest point in his "film"-making with his last film - but I was wrong, this film is far worse (it is so poorly made).
This movie would actually be fun to watch, if you didn't know that there are actually people that believe in them - blindly. Though most of these people are uneducated, they still have a voice, which can spread more lies. Cant believe that people believe in these documentaries, when Alex Jones actually thinks and says things like: American Gulag - Concentration Camps in America, Pentagon hides evidence of alien life, Were 'Pod Missiles' Used in the World Trade Center Attack? , The Tsunamies are made by CIA with bombs (Tsunami Bomb Developed As Far Back As 1944), Olympic Symbols Have Sinister Origins, Airline Insanity Merely A Beta Test For Police State Caste System, Jacques Cousteau wanted to kill 80% of us, The secret rulers of the world can live forever and that the secret shadow government also was responsible for the Madrid-bombs. Alex Jones believe in this, and so does his cult-followers (I.E. the people that gave this fictional-movie "10"). All these claims can be viewed at Alex Jones website. According to Jones the Madrid-bombings where planned by the government, not extreme islamists. Though that thought at first sounds retarded, he does argue for it in a very arrogant and therefore a little convincing way. But if you believe that, you of course have to ignore all the technical evidence, all the martyr-videos, that there then must have been involved thousands of Spanish people, who had no problem with killing country men, and not telling about it, that most Islamists believe islamists did it, most Europeans also does, that 99 % of all educated people do, that it actually was Arabs. But then again Alex Jones does have a big merchandise-website: infowars-shop.stores.yahoo.net/videos.html ($ for Jones).
Also these conspiracy theorists (CT's) willfully ignore that this terror-attack at first was blamed at ETA (i doubt you CT's know what it is), if they had planned it, would they not have blamed it on Arabs at first? The answer is yes. There more elaborate these conspiracy theories get, the more they fall apart. Plus the right-wing Spanish government fell because of this attack, and because they wanted to blame it on the ETA and not Al-Quada. And Spain withdrew from Iraq because of this Terror-Attack - explain that CT's? The new Spanish government withdrew from Iraq and so on, because the old one was to Bush-friendly etc.
Alex Jones thinks that he has discovered the truth by staying in his basement and using the internet. He thinks that he can examine this Terrorcase better than the countless of educated Spanish police-officers and government officials on the scene of the crime. Such arrogance, and still people believe him.
The problem is that CT's want USA to have done it - even if they have to lie to make it so. They want to keep they prejudges that Arabs are stupid and harmless, and Americans Evil, clever and devious. I've known many Arabs, they are capable of doing as much as any, as can all the people in the world.
If the secret American shadow government have planned all bad things/terror attacks in world, including the Plaque in the middle-ages, would that not say that they control everything??? Then why did they not plant 19 Iraqies, North Koreans, Iranians or Afghans in the planes 9/11, instead of 19 Saudis, to better justify the war on terror?? Would they not have manufactured WMD's and planted them in Iraq, for justifying the war on Iraq, if they are so powerful, evil and devious??
Im just glad that only 2 or 3 people like this movie. Look at the comments: there are about 3 -4 positive comments on this movie, all submitted around the same date 21 - 22 September (plus 3 around the 13th October)...... 4 comments, come on: it is the same guy, with a lot of second accounts, because they haven't commented anything else: pathetic, just as this movie.

VERY important film
As said this is an important film. It can help to finally debunk and destroy the dumb conspiracy-theories that have been circulating among the uneducated people. The most common conspiracy theory is that it was a missile that destroyed a part of the pentagon. The conspiracy theorists bases this on three claim: 1) That you could not see any part of the plane from the distance. 2) That the Air-defense of the pentagon. 3) That the jet must have been shot down by f-16's, but wasn't because Bush stopped it.
1) Conspiracy-theorists does not know physics: A plane that flew with such speed and velocity, would have been ripped to pieces and pressed into a small cylinder by the immense kinetic energy when it hit. People should study pictures of plane-crashes, but the conspiracy-theorists don't - because the want to believe in their fantasy-story about black-magic and missiles.
2) Well, this is a direct lie from the conspiracy-theorists: there have never been a air-defense at the pentagon, since the cold war was at its height. Plus it would be dumb to have it on alert or even there, when hundreds of helicopters fly to and from the pentagon every week. The Air-defense/SAM-sites where never there.
3) There are hundreds of jets in the air all the time, it is not possible to track them all. The conspiracy-theorists said that 67 jets where intercepted a few years ago: that is a lie, there was 67 scrambles, 1 was intercepted (not shot down, i mean). So they exaggerate all the time. There are only a few F-16's in the air all the time, they are over the sea, because the shall not come in the way of commercial jets. The conspiracy-theorists says that Norad deliberately did not do its job: that is dumb - NORAD was built to combat soviet bombers over Alaska, nothing more. Plus Norad was about to Close, because the cold war was over.
Plus: the Pentagon released pictures where you can see that it is a plane that hits the pentagon. The Magazine "popular mechanics" have debunked most of the lies posted by conspiracy-theorists such as Alex Jones.
So this movie is good: it shows the truth. Plus the director is a very good director. It is not too soon. I love this film.
Full of bad science, and no understanding of physics.
I watched this flawed documentary, and I must say: very bad science went into it, the filmmaker have no conception of physics (if he ever graduated). The most plot of the movie is that the Bush-administration planned 9/11. At first the film is convincing, but if you think, then it is awful. Because the film says that Bin Laden at first did not admit it - yes that is true, but he did later, over and over again, and so did the rest of Al-Quada as well (and Al-Quada does exist (conspiracy-theorists: No, Al-Quada is not CIA-agents in disguise as you claim), just turn on TV from Iraq). The Al-Quada is very proud of it. And many of the people there are very clever, very clever indeed. Many of them engineers. So it is very believable that they had the brains to do it (unlike some conspiracy-theorists claims that Arabs are too dumb, so it has to be Jews (my own experience is that Arabs are like everybody else: Clever, sweat, funny and sometimes vengeful, as everybody else, so they could do it)). One of the claims of the film is that Jet-fuel could never have made the buildings go down, because jet-fuel does not burn hot enough to melt iron. Once again they show that they do not have any grasp of reality or physics. Yes, Jet-fuels burning-temperature is lower than irons, but that is in a lab. When it hits a office building, there are a lot of elements that feet the fire: there are many tables, chairs, plants, other office-stuff and tonnes of paper (but this the conspiracy-theorists completely have ignored, they take their hands to their heads and go: "lalalala, i cant hear you", because they want to believe this lie, this fantasy-story). The wood, paper and other material made the fire burn even hotter, so that the temperature was raised to the hight as the melting-temperature of Iron. But here again, the conspiracy-theorists show that they have no grasp of science or physics: heat makes metal weaker, so that iron skeleton of the building was weakened very much, so that the only think that held it up was the cement outside it. But this cement was soon crackled, because the heat of the fire made the iron expand (yes, conspiracy-theorists, heat makes metal expand, you didn't know that, did you?) so that it made the whole floor very weak, and in the end buckled under for the immense pressure on top. Conspiracy-theorists: please read some more practical physics. There maybe is one physics-professor that have stated for this theory - but then again, the same people proved the magic-bullet-theory in the case of the assassination of JFK. The science magazine: Popular mechanics have proved that all of these theories are basically wrong, you should all look it up, it is enlightening. The magazine talked to many demolition-experts and engineers who said the same things.
There are tonnes of other things in this movie which is exaggerated and misinterpreted - deliberately. This movie is mostly made by Alex Jones him self, than can be seen, so bad is the movie. Don't watch it, it is a rape of the genre "documentary", because it has nothing to do with reality. It is a fantasy-picture, where a impersonation of reality have been pulled around, to look as if it is the truth - though it is not (apparant to most educated people).
