Could have been great
22 June 2003 | by mEnTaL_hOpScOtChSee all my reviews

This movie was really good, but it was really draggy and it could have been finished in one video instead of two. There were a lot of unnecessary talking and scenes, but it was still a very educational movie. 2½ stars out of 5.
