4.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative January 9, 2007
Format:DVD
Excellent footage, scene set up, and computer graphics. You are "there" for each event. The computer graphics allow you to "see" what is happening beneath the surface during an earthquake, as well as educating you on volcanic activity. The narrative was very informative, however for some inexplicable reason the volume starts dropping at a certain point for a few minutes. A tad annoying, but easily fixed, though you might miss the first few words. There could be a tendency, when putting together a film like this, to over-dramatize, however, the filmmakers resist and we get a reasonable presentation of the facts. I would highly recommend this well done documentary. Be sure to watch the bonus features.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough March 9, 2005
Format:DVD
This video is very short and doesn't have a lot of content. Thier are some great sceens but overall its nothing you havn't seen before. I would have liked to see some avalanches and better explanations of all natural disasters with more depth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting April 16, 2010
By Jane G.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this video because my son is OBSESSED with volcanoes. I hoped to see more footage of eruptions, but instead, the video focuses on ash eruptions and discussions with vulcanologists. It is interesting, but I'm sure there is better footage out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Action, lots of talk November 22, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not for someone that is looking for a lot of action scenes of the "Forces of nature" There is limited action footage and a lot of talking. It might be interesting to someone that is looking for background of why the people studying the storms are doing it, but not if you are looking for outstanding camera work
