Too much focus on presenters
20 January 2015 | by earthcomedySee all my reviews

This documentary could have been so much better. As a reference, I've seen numerous documentaries on Hannibal from NatGeo and BBC among others, but they didn't specifically focus on the trail itself that Hannibal took.

The premise for this doc is intriguing, but poorly executed. There are way too many closeups of any of the (3) brothers, and their banter and musing gets tiring - the focus is supposed to be about the TRAIL not the presenters! Too many camera angles and quick changes distracted from understanding the march into Italy.

The HD video is very clear, and the narration - when it does concern Hannibal's assault - is good. The references to Polybius and Livy are great. The maps that are presented of the route are excellent.

More panorama shots of the brothers riding amongst the scenery is better than mere closeups of them, which does not tell one anything (visually) about the trail, rather it is more a form of self-glorification. But then, maybe one or all of these brothers were part of this march in a past life...and war was glory for many back then...
