Introducing you personally to everyone who worked on the movie(or, rather, the one scene)... every... last... one of them
14 June 2007 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

Using a single scene as a starting point for a "making of" featurette wasn't necessarily a bad idea... and wanting to give credit where credit is due is undeniably an admirable goal. Unfortunately, the resulting documentary just could have been better. Most of the footage that actually shows us something from the creative process was seen in the web documentaries, which are also featured on the DVD(and which are all considerably more concise than this), and those who followed the production on-line really won't find out anything new by watching this. The gimmick of the family tree winds up being dull to look at, something that should never happen to something which has no other purpose than to be a visual representation of something, and in the end, this is just too informative. Anyone who worked on the film may get a quick thrill from showing this to their families, sharing a brief moment of glee at seeing their name scroll up the screen, but for almost everyone else, this really doesn't serve as much more than a technical description of what the responsibilities are for the jobs on a film production, and a list of credits. Only one scene is dealt with in this, the well-known duel of Mustafar, and while a fine job of showing how much work and effort goes into just the minute or so shown at the beginning of this, the way in which no other scene is mentioned or referenced winds up seeming odd(for a special which is one hour and fifteen minutes long, that's *feature-length*). Rick McCallum narrates, and as with many other specials, much of it is purely a love-fest. As nice an idea as this is based on, it ends up a failed experiment. I recommend this to anyone interested in finding out who made the movie. 6/10
