Awesome story, poor production
31 August 2009 | by enemseeSee all my reviews

I watched this documentary for the first time yesterday. I had taped it off the History Channel a while back and was really looking forward to watching it. I have never been so frustrated and disappointed, not with the program itself but with the production values. First of all, Aidan Quinn, as good an actor as he is, was all wrong as the narrator. Why? Because he spoke so softly! Who directed him like that? However, he didn't stand a chance anyway because the background music was SO LOUD! Most of the time he couldn't be heard or understood. I'm kind of hoping the producers of this wonderful documentary will read this and could redo it somehow, turn Aidan's voice UP and turn the music DOWN! Otherwise, I loved it, being Irish on both sides!
