Almost complete story of the Kims.
29 December 2018 | by WesternOne1See all my reviews

The series has a lot of well researched footage and well chosen interviews with actual participants in various historical events. It is an intelligently presented chronicle of the depraved dynasty that has caused such monumental misery on the people of North Korea. Though I have a complaint. That is, that China is only referred to, almost incidentally, a few times throughout. Their participation in the Korean War, for instance, is completely unmentioned. In fact, most of that conflict is ignored. We are told only that Kim "lost" the war, and we're shown a devastated townscape. If he lost, why is there a North Korea now? What about the return to the 38th paralell? Not important, I guess. Emphasis is put on Stalin, and then Russia along the way, but we never are told that Red China was and is, the primary backer of the Kim regime. Mass murdering despots look out for each other. If they weren't supporting the Kims, they would have collapsed long ago. To ignore the China componant, is to be close to misleading.
