I was expecting more about him. It is basically more about WW2 than Hitler story. Many documentary pictures you can see in another war dvd's

Alot of video and biographical data on these DVD's. Again, it is pro-western in all its view points. Extremely bias. Gives some good detail and specifics, but is notorious for implementing the Axis Powers as "bad guys". The truth is created by the victors.......it is clearly created in these DVD's. Clearly pro-american.

HASH(0xa3acf06c) out of 5 stars Hitler: The Rehashed Story March 15 2011
By Lacrimatorium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I think it is a good guess that most of the money spent making this documentary (or rather series of three documentaries) was spent on the cover graphics, which I must confess caught my eye. This is a great example of deceptive packaging. And let me explain why.

First this is not a 12 hour series on Hitler as advertised.

Secondly there is no documentary in this package actually called Hitler: The Untold Story. The name of the six hour slog contained herein is Hitler: Myths, Anecdotes and Lies... which is a misnomer as well. (It is not listed in IMDb.)

There is also a three hour documentary misleadingly labeled "The World at War: From Hitler to Hiroshima", which again once you actually watch the DVD is called "From Hitler to Hiroshima: The World at War". This has nothing to do with the excellent Thames Television series from the 1970's entitled the "World at War" and is just labeled such to confuse the viewer. It is in fact one more tedious run through of the same material.

Next there is also a three hour documentary on the U-Boats. This might be worth the couple of dollars shelled out for this thing. (Warning if you pay more than five dollars for this package you're going to have a tough time getting your money's worth.)

Finally as to the Hitler documentary, which indeed is nearly six hours long... (And feels every minute of it.) If you've seen a couple of documentaries on Hitler you've seen it all before, except for perhaps 2%. I think approximately 70% of Triumph of the Will was cannibalized from a very poor quality print. And the rest is from predominantly obvious sources. Now I would be willing to forgive even that somewhat if they had any new slant on the subject. Some poor English historian is roped in with less than 6 minutes of talking head time amongst the 6 hours. Supposedly he narrates this whole shebang. But he doesn't. ( I wish he had.) Instead we get a very stilted individual talking with a strange American accent who can't pronounce certain words quite correctly. This could be the "director" Jose Delgado who is the "write and director" (sic).

By the way this is from Mill Creek and Octapixx???

Here's what this mess really looks like to me: With it's horrifying digital transition effects, it's constant and pointless musical score, it's untranslated Hitler speeches droning on through the background as random sound, it's fuzzy images; it all seems to have been crammed together on someone's old PC in about 1997 from preexisting source material (VHS?), without too much regard to content meshing with image. Yes I did glean a couple of shards I hadn't known about. But that's really no excuse. (Maybe I should do one of these.)

This wasn't the untold story. This was truly Hitler: the completely needlessly rehashed story.

HASH(0xa3acf2b8) out of 5 stars very bland narration,,,,but still has much footage & information (at least worth $7.00) Jan. 9 2012

this is not a bad documentary...it is 12 hours long...and well worth $7.00. The narration and way it is all put together is very bland..but if interested in seeing footage and hearing information..you will get it in this documentary. It is something you would expect to see other people sleeping with their heads down on their desks in history class...but for interested students..it is still informative and interesting.

HASH(0xa3acf27c) out of 5 stars No untold stories, but still decent June 9 2013
By EPA316 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There is nothing in this entire DVD set that I have not seen elsewhere, so that knocks it down one star right there. The title of the DVD is flat-out untrue. In fact, I know many things about Hitler that this DVD missed.

The other star was lost because it is a very cheaply produced DVD. Some examples: the narrator over-pronounces his words, which gets tedious. It seems he's incapable of using any contractions, and it sounds like an android is telling the story. Also, he stubbornly mis-pronounces some words repeatedly, such as saying ROOS-evelt rather than the more commonly used ROSE-evelt. He incorrectly pronounces it exactly as it's spelled. A minor point, but an example of how annoying the narration is at times. The graphics are cheesy, as is the music. Ah, the music! Wildly inappropriate at times, such as romantic symphonic music or peppy jazz music while showing intense, violent combat footage. And, the sound effects were lacking at times too. While showing British ships launching anti-submarine hedgehogs, they used the sound from the Soviet Katyusha rockets, or "Stalin's Organ." And in another scene with combat troops going at it, I swear I heard a Wilhelm Scream in there. You can look it up on youtube if you don't know what that is.

This is a DVD that has definitely earned its place in the $5 bargain bin. If you can get it for $5 or less, you might as well, it's not completely awful. But there are much better WWII DVDs out there. I'm still waiting for the DVD release of "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," if that ever comes out on DVD.

HASH(0xa3acf774) out of 5 stars The untold story????? Dec 8 2012
By Braddles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have noted, a lot of the info here is not new. If you have seen little previously on Hitler, you will enjoy it, however those that have studied Hitler and the war will find much of it tiresome.
My main criticism was with the first disc, which included much footage clearly intended to be archival footage but could not possibly be(eg the 'actual' explosion on 20/7/44 which nearly killed Hitler). A lot of the footage, while genuinely archival has been used out of place, such as vision at the Berghof, which it is implied was shot much later in the war than it was. Also, the segment on the holocaust was way to short considering the enormity of those events(acknowledged even in the segment titles as lasting 11 years).
A pet hate of mine was the constant mispronunciation of certain names such as Goering(Gooring), Goebels(Gobels), and in the U-Boat shows, Doenitz(made to sound like a policeman's favourite treat(Donutz).
Some of the shows were out of place, especially the Pacific campaign epiosodes, as it had nothing to do with Hitler, and was overly long. While the sacrifices of those involved in the fighting can never be understated, it seemed there was a segment on the battle for every single island in the Pacific.

HASH(0xa3acf60c) out of 5 stars Good But Could Have Been Better June 9 2013
By Shadow Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There's a lot of footage that I have never seen before. The main complaint is the narration that sounds like it was read at the spur of the moment a lot of incorrect pronunciations of names and locations. Other than that it's good for the price.
