Some time ago I picked up Outside the Wire (2007 trilogy and Call Sign Vengeance). While I appreciate the effort that goes into documentary efforts, I had to force myself to sit through all four programs. The largest weakness in the movies is that if you’ve read Yon and Totten and Blackfive, these videos are review. If you get your news via CNN or Fox, they may be worthwhile; however, the chance that someone that does focus on mainstream news sources is going to pick up these DVDs is slim.
One reason to purchase the videos is the author’s attempt to out-earn Redacted; apparently, he’s 2/3 of the way to Redacted’s domestic box office. If this appeals to you, by all means buy all of the copies you can afford. One other reason to make the purchase is to support the filmmaker’s future efforts; for that alone, I feel OK about the buy.
