Somewhat fun if your professor ditches class and has you watch this.
12 July 2016 | by gwatson2006See all my reviews

A lot of time spent on this film is spent on ancient sun worshiping religions. There is really not much science actually presented in the film. It nicely fits the role it was made for: Something to watch at a museum. For a film that was made in 2000, it does show some signs of it being outdated. The music is good, though sometimes overboard. The narration can be a little cheesy at times, those poor llamas. Almost no CGI or animations were used, however there does seem to be some despite the claimer at the beginning(none of them being of the sun). There are also some apocalyptic warning about the sun being able to trash all the satellites or destroy half the ozone layer. Just seems to be really weird in a documentary about the history of sun science.
