Excessive use of CGI and quick cuts distracted from the useful information they were giving, but this may be necessary to hold some young people's attention. Overall, good information but just a bit over the top.

I could never ever imagine the whole age of universe being compressed into one hour and forty-five minutes. Although there are many important events of the world omitted from this documentary (to make its length shorter). A highly recommended documentary.

The History Channel has done it again very well done documentary series. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse, seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see.

Should be required viewing in every Catholic high school and government office.

Excellent summation from the big bang forward. Of course it doesn't go into the detailed arguments of things, that's just impossible within a 90 minute film.
