Overall, Great Mini-Series, However, Not enough air-time for the defendants
I have read a few books on the Nuremberg trials, as well as books on The Third Reich in general. Though the portrayals of the defendants were fairly accurate, they were not given the appropriate amount of air-time.I mean, without the defendants, there wouldn't have been a trial. Here's the top 10 things that should have been added (and especially subtracted from the movie.)
10) Should have emphasized the alliances between the defendants. Speer wasn't the only one to stand up to Goering. Von Schirach, Funk, and Fritzsche were all against Goering.
9) Give Defendent #2 Rudolf Hess more that four words.
8) Clarifiy why Hess goes crazy at the end.
7) Make sure the audience knows that Speer's penitence could be him saving his hide.
6) Emphasize that Franks conversion was due to him finding God.
5) Talk about the defendants personal lives, try to explain why they would commit these atrocities.
4) Tell what happened to the defendants who were acquitted or had their sentences carried out at Spandau.
3) They should of had the story include Von Schirach and Von Neurath, the youngest and the oldest defendants, so they would have more of a age perspective to the story.
2)All of the Defendants positions should have been named at least once.
1) The Jackson/Secretary affair probably took at'least a half an hour out of the mini-series, Which could have been dedicated to, I don't know, making sure the audience at least knows the defendant's's names. Besides, I don't now one person who saw that movie who actually liked the couple.
