5.0 out of 5 stars The truth about Easter Island 5 Aug 2013
By Curt Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
I've been studying about Easter Island for over 40 years, and have spent 6 weeks on the island in 2 separate trips. This film is by far the most complete and accurate summation of our knowledge of the island that I have seen. It features many of the leading experts on the island, most of whom have done extensive field work on Rapa Nui. I highly recommend this film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Easter Island documentary so far. 14 Jun 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is an AWESOME documentary on Easter Island. I've seen all the documentaries available from major sources since I saw Chariots of the Gods in the 70s as a kid. And this one is the best so far. This documentary is the ONLY one that I have seen that is based on verifiably authoritative sources such as professionals who use evidence to draw conclusions rather than the sensationalistic appeal of UFOs. This is the only complete documentary on Easter Island. All of what is currently known about Easter Island is presented. The truth is well-founded in hard evidence and sorry, but there is no mystery. This is the polar opposite of the sideshow put on by "ancient alien astronaut theorists". The opinions of reviewers who say they don't like this documentary because it is "pedestrian" or because there "isn't any mystery" are off track. There is no mystery because the questions have been answered. Apparently, these people think a documentary should be full of fabricated "mysteries" and unqualified goofball frauds with crazy hair instead of real scientists, professionals and academicians. Anyone who says this is a travelogue did not watch it or does not know what a travelogue is. This is NOT a travelogue. And it is NOT for tourists --except those who want an introduction to the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful documentary! 16 May 2014
By S C. - Published on Amazon.com
Very interesting, moving documentary about the achievements and tribulations of a beautiful, innovative, resilient culture. I didn't come into this looking for conspiracy theories and so I wasn't disappointed. What I got was an entertaining and informative history lesson and I came away feeling that the story of Rapa Nui's people teach us we absolutely must be kinder to each other and to the earth. The parts about the slave traders nearly made me cry. Great doc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Objective and Insightful 12 Jun 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The program provides varying views of scientists without reservations. The audience is able to compare the views and decide on their own. The program covers many aspects starting with the origin of the people to the current activities on Easter Island. Evidence and data is presented effectively to postulate on many mysteries including the future of "our" civilization. Well done.
