Predictably awesome. [27 May 2013, p.42]
At its best, the narration, delivered by Tom Selleck, is clear and unadorned, but it occasionally falls into purple patches of grandiloquence.... A heavy hand prevails in the music cues, too, which can be cutesy or obvious. Such emphatic accompaniment, in music and prose, is unnecessary when the images are so potent.
There are some hectoring musical passages and the narration, delivered by Tom Selleck, foregrounding the folksy creak in his voice, can run to the precious and dramatically over-personified.... It is gorgeous clean through.
