Where did this guy get his coat from?

I stopped half way into the movie because it was wasting my time.

Paint is heavier than raw metal, but it reduces the maintenance.

The other reviewer said this was boring. But that doesn't quite capture the essence of it. I have to go with Mind-numbingly dull. One star is indeed generous.

Even at FREE it is not worth the time investment.

If more UFO documentaries were as bad as this one, there would be no need for government disinformation. Even if there were a real story here, we’re given almost no evidence for any of it – yet Mark Olly would have us believe that a UFO unquestionably exploded over some remote Wales countryside in 1983. It all starts with a national news article from 1983 describing the discovery of metallic debris across four fields near the Welsh community of Abersytwyth. No one – including the farmer who owned the land – heard or saw anything unusual on the night the debris-scattering incident occurred. The police were called, as well as the RAF, and then the Ministry of Defense arrived and cleaned up the site. That’s pretty much the whole story.

Olly’s colleague consulted local and national newspapers but found no other article associated with the incident. They speak to the reporter, who has no memory of the story’s source, as well as the farmer – both of whom we are assured are more than happy to talk. Of course, we get to hear from neither of the men ourselves. Come to think of it, we’re never actually shown video or pictures of the site in question, either – despite Olly’s visit there to try and recover any debris the MOD had missed. That would be the end of the story – but Olly locates another researcher who claims to have visited the site days after the MOD left and located several pieces of debris in the adjoining woods. Finally – after several viewings of Olly’s “UFO explosion” recreation and personal stories of Olly’s own UFO sightings – we’re allowed to actually see the pieces for ourselves. They seem quite terrestrial-looking to me – but we’re told that metallurgists say they’re an unusually strong example of the type of metal used on fighter aircraft.

This jaunt into the world of the .. 'mystery' of the Abersytwyth crash goes beyond the standard lame and sad UFO documentaries drawing wild conclusions about mundane objects. With unnamed unpresented experts, a photocopy of a newspaper story that couldn't be re-located, and witnesses who aren't presented who can't remember anything anyhow we set off on a journey into boredom.

And how could we not, I mean, who wouldn't believe every word of someone that looks as professional as a Ren-Faire reject when he is "in the field". Don't know why I bothered quotes on that, I mean the guy literally was in a field, a field that had nothing at all to do with the story. In fact the only visual that we saw that really had anything to do with the story was the video of the fragments of material that looked like corrugated aircraft skin to me.

I wonder if the 'producer' knows that corrugated (honeycomb and otherwise) duralumin (which is an alloy of approximately 4% copper and aluminum) has been in use for the skins of aircraft since 1916 (not just fighters and not just in the moving bits). Or if that the high purity outer coating which seems to mystify them so greatly is not high purity duralumin, but high purity aluminum used to prevent corrosion of the corrosion prone duralumin material, a protective measure known as Alclad which has been in use since 1927. Which is still used in aircraft today (but most people stopped calling it duralumin in the 1970's when international alloy standards were created) people who still use the name use it as a blanket term covering all aluminum coper alloys.

As to the aerodynamics of the paint, something brought up several times by the 'film' and the comments.

When I have a hard time falling asleep, I'll put on a documentary. Mercifully, this did not disappoint. In that sense, it should get 4 stars but in terms of production value (what is with the long musical interludes? with terrible music no less) or intrigue or creating a vague notion that something interesting MIGHT have happened, this had none of it.

Two stars only for its sedative value.

Where did this guy get his coat from? It looks like it is from another century. Maybe he should be telling us stories about time travel since he seems from another era. If I wanted to see Wales and listen to cheesy background music I would be watching something different. Seems implausible but did find it a bit amusing.

There is simply nothing in this movie. The first half was a conspiracy theory monologue with no actual data, photos, nothing. I stopped half way into the movie because it was wasting my time.

I gave up about 5 minutes in. This was the definition of amateur. Too bad because I was interested in the subject matter but couldn't stand to watch this horribly produced show.

I hadn't heard of this UFO event so I was a little excited to find out more, but it turns out there isn't anything more to find out. I'm not angry at the director though for wasting my time; I'm angry with Amazon for putting this utter garbage in their digital library. If Amazon picks up titles without previewing first, then that's a poor policy. If an Amazon employee did preview this movie before deciding to purchase the rights, then that employee should be immediately terminated for negligent stupidity.
