5.0 out of 5 stars superb all round TV mini series, 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oppenheimer : The Complete BBC Series [DVD] (DVD)
A superb mini series on the life of Robert Oppenheimer and the development of the atomic bomb. I first saw this some time ago when it was shown on Australian TV and recently watched it again on DVD. Its style is very different to the usual style of American TV shows. Its made in the style practised in the UK, little fanfare but superb acting and characterisation with an excellent storyline. Sam Waterston really is excellent in this role portraying Oppenheimer not just physically (he is almost his spitting image) but also emotionally and in the character of the man. It also shows how exciting the development of the technology for the bomb was, how truly difficult it was to build it and all the problems they had to overcome. All of the actors in their respective roles are very good with David Suchet also in a superb performance as Edward Teller. It pretty well has everything you would want from a mini series.
