5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the commercial version - buy the directors cut, 4 Oct 2006
The very sad fact about this excellent film is that it was killed (in spirit at least) by the movie studio in an effort to make it more 'viewer friendly'. I have both versions of this film on DVD and I can say unequivably that the commercial release is horrid, I can't stand to watch it, but the uncut director version is nothing short of excellent, one of my favorite films - why? The directors cut fleshes out the plot in a much better way and sits together as a film more naturally. The commercial version is edited completely different and cuts out all the story aspects of the film, focusing on being an action movie rather than a true sci-fi film. In short it doesn't work, all action and no plot leaves the commercial version empty, souless, spoiled. If you love sci-fi and especially if you loved Pitch Black then buy this film, but please buy the real version and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the knockers - this title is brilliant, 6 Jan 2003
This review is from: Space [DVD] (DVD)
'For every grain of sand on Earth there are a million stars in the universe'.
Judging from the reviews below one would think SPACE is either a 'love it' or 'hate it' type of product. Personally I fall into the 'love it' catergory. I own both this title and the BBC's excellent 'The Planets' title and would say definately that SPACE exceeds Planets in terms of the very clear and accurate way it uses to explain many of the topics covered by the series. The concept behind the series is clearly to educate viewers about just how amazing the universe we live in actually is, and as such it uses lots of very nice looking computer animations and visual effects to achieve this aim. The result is a very slick, entertaining and well thought out series which will educate and entertain for many veiwings (I have watched mine about 5 times so far and still enjoy it). If you enjoy learning about space and the universe then this is a must have title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visually Magnificant, 20 Aug 2002
This review is from: Space [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is great. The CG effects they use to show the sun, planets and universe are nothing short of spectacular and the topics they have chosen for each show in the series is well thought out and well scripted. If you have kids and you want them to learn about the solar system and stars we live amongst then this is an excellent way to teach them. The show is enjoying and interesting to watch, as well as being as good as any Sci-fi program to keep you entertained and interested.
