1916: The Irish Rebellion online movie review - One of my favorite places in the whole world

For all those lovers of Ireland and Irish history. This is a doc done by the BBC. For the days leading up to the 1916 uprising. The video is worth a watch for sure if you don't already know the history.

This covers the very beginning of it. The reason I have only given it a 7/10 is it doesn't go further into the story. It seems to end at the end of the uprising and give just a quick glance at how freedom for the Irish state was actually won some 5 years later. While the doc show some interesting older footage and give some historical context they seem to be hung up a lot on meaningless scenes of the ocean and repeating the same phrases and points over and over and over wait I don't know if the Irish horse is dead yet keep beating it again. There was a lot of filler time in this documentary. It could have either been shorter, or actually expanded the ending to give it some real closure than what it actually did. It would also be nice if they really dived into the history of the stories. They seem to just glance them. They could have also put forth effort into bringing in relevant modern connections. For anyone who has ever going to Dublin I would recommend a quick stop at the Post office on McConnel st. There is a museum inside dedicated to Irish independence and covers the story of the buildings role with the people who were inside it. It's 2 euro to get into the museum and probably the most educational 2 euro you will spend in Dublin. You will get your 2 euro worth.
