Fireball – Visitors From Darker Worlds (a film mini-review by Mark R. Leeper).

February 8, 2021 | By | Reply More

Co-directed by Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer, this Apple TV+ documentary about meteors covers a surprising breadth of discussion about the topic from science to tribal mysticism.

Fireball – Visitors From Darker Worlds meanders quite a bit and while Herzog displays a broad scientific knowledge, his voice is at times a little wearing.

Since this review is written primarily for a Science Fiction audience, I will mention that well-known Science Fiction fan and Director of the Vatican Observatory), Brother Guy Consolmagno, is interviewed in it at about the one-hour point.

Rating: +1 (-4 to +4)
