The Men Who Built America (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: I love history and I really enjoyed this program.  It was entertaining and I learned some new things and added some extra details to some of what I did already know.  These men are fascinating in their own right and what they accomplished and what they advanced can’t be entirely dismissed by the methods that they used to to achieve those goals.

The Men Who Built America Review

  • Excerpt: The History Channel has shifted to more entertaining ways in recent years to present history as younger generations now prefer their education in slicker packages than straight documentaries. The Men Who Built America is an eight-episode mini-series chronicling the rise of business titans like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller before World War I, as they helped shape a country devastated by the Civil War into the world’s greatest superpower.

  • Conclusion: A sprawling and sweeping miniseries, 'The Men Who Built America' is a fascinating and terrifically entertaining look at the massive success of entrepreneurs and industrialists in the late 19th Century. Although not as detailed as other documentaries, the eight-part bio-drama is captivating nonetheless as it examines how these four men influenced and shaped capitalism into the 20th Century. The three-disc Blu-ray set comes with an excellent audio and video presentation.

The Men Who Built America Blu-ray Review

  • Conclusion: My late mother grew up in Pennsylvania in Andrew Carnegie country and used to lament that no one pronounced Carnegie the "correct" way (namely "Car-NAY-gee"). She would be pleased to hear that at least intermittently some people do pronounce it that way, but that's just one of the smaller pleasures that this really quite informative miniseries offers.
