UFOs: The Secret History | Documentary Review

by Roy B
(Vermont, USA)

I love a good UFO story. And there are a lot of bad UFO stories out there. Many are just rehashed versions of something that someone else has already created. Simply repeating stories from Roswell or interviewing the same people others have interviewed.

But UFOs: The Secret History takes a different approach. Extremely well written with great use of graphics and sound, this documentary attempts and succeeds at covering many aspects of UFO sighting over the years. And I'm not talking about from Roswell to Phoenix. This doc goes back, way back in history to show that throughout time there have always been reports of things flying around in the sky.

Written and narrated with just the right amount of sarcasm and wit, UFOs: The Secret History is engaging, entertaining and educating from beginning to end. As I said, I love a good UFO story and this doc presented a lot of stories that I had never heard of before. The amount of research was impressive. It wasn't just a retelling of facts. The information they gathered was presented from multiple angles putting the viewer on a roller coaster ride. Do these guys believe in UFOs or not? Are they trying to convince me that UFOs are real or are they trying to tell me that I am gullible for believing? The writing had me going back and forth as I watched it. I believe! No wait, UFOs aren't real. Wait, yes they are!

The people they interviewed were also engaging, informed and entertaining. I guess this says a lot about the producers in that they were able to find the best stories to be shared by the best people and they (the producers) were able to get the interviewees to relax on camera and speak freely about their experiences or lack of experiences.

Most of the doc took advantage of the information that is available from modern times using government and scientific studies to give the viewer a wide and in-depth perspective into the secret history of UFOs.

If you like UFOs and like watching UFO stories, don't miss this documentary. It's a fun ride about a subject an intangible subject that could affect everyone on our planet.

I give this documentary 5 out of 5 stars because it is about UFOs. It made me laugh and snark and cringe and it even scared me a bit. It also was so well written. It moved along effortlessly. And that's not an easy thing to do-tell a long story about something so vast without becoming boring or redundant.
