One of the best docudramas ever made
12 April 2007 | by chimpanzee_boyukSee all my reviews

Who says British special effects are complete rubbish? To be fair they are generally, but this is one of the better dramas in terms of... well... everything! The effects are pretty good (OK, their not spectacular, but at least the director hasn't put too much emphasis on them), very good acting, but the thing I really like about this is the Soundtrack; perfect for the story! The way to make a good docudrama is to focus on the stories of the people who experienced it, translate these with famous actors, and use an effective backdrop to aid the story, and that's just what Krakatoa: The Last Days has done. Forget all that glossy, expensive Hollywood rubbish; this is how a docudrama should be made! 9/10
