I waited a long time to receive delivery of this Blu-ray disc - 507 days actually - 24 September 2013 till 13 Feb 2015. I had intended to use it to prepare for my Summer holiday 2014. And when that came and passed I was intending to use it as a souvenir of the excellent holiday we had. Was it fit for either of these purposes? Not in my opinion. The concept, content, filming, editing and audio are all very amateurish. I got the impression that the budget was very limited and was overspent.
The run time is stated to be 0:55 minutes. That will pass very quickly and enjoyably I thought. The opening scenes of the waves crashing on the rocks started to get me alarmed. Why was so much valuable time being wasted showing very similar scenes when there is surely so much to be shown in only 0:55 minutes? Towards the end of the disc I kept looking at my watch wondering how much longer is this going on for. The 0:55 minutes seemed an incredibly long time.
The film tries to be very artistic with beautiful scenes backed by instrumental mood music interspersed with some informative commentary. Unfortunately the scenes are generally jerky, very repetitive and the similar sounding music soon starts to grate on the ears. The well spoken commentary comes as a relief but its content is rather limited. Yes there is some excellent scenery - my favourite was the scenes of volcanic activity from the helicopter over Kilauea. However the camera motion was jerky and there were reflections from the helicopter window. When I took my own amateur video over the same scenery I had booked a Doors-Off flight so that I would not get the reflections.
For me such a film does not meet my souvenir objective as I could only bear to watch it once.
Unfortunately it would not really have helped me on my planning objective either. The film keeps skipping between scenes of the different islands without a clear indication of which islands are being shown at any particular time.

What a waste of money!!!!!! Awful editing, awful music and picture worse than any normal DVD. This does not show the Hawaiian islands - water crashing in the coast for the first 15 minutes in the same area is not representative of this fantastic island chain. There's more than Kuai'i and the big island. Where was Maui? Where was Ohau - to say the capital is on that island, one of the world's most famous beaches at Waikiki and some fantastic surf beaches on the North Shore. There's more to the fauna than the Nene (Hawaiian goose) and there was no fly over the Pu'u'o'o crater to show the lava lake that contributes to the longest volcanic eruption (1983 and still going). I apologise to my Hawaiian friends for this pile of junk...very, very disappointed

Sorely disappointed. Bought this expecting an exciting tour of Hawaii. Instead got an amateurish series of shots of waves crashing, plant life up very close (& very prolonged) and a few good shots of the Na Pali coast and Waimea Canyon. There is hesitant narration which only rarely tells you where you are looking at and all shots are from Kauai and Big Island alone. Dull and soporific. Where's the interest?
