"Hindenburg: The Last Flight" is a 2013 two-part German television miniseries. Although it shows inaccurately the cabins with windows, I prefer the Hindenburg TV miniseries over the 1975 George C. Scott film, "The Hindenburg," because there is much more plot and the Hindenburg TV miniseries is more entertaining. IMHO, I would rate "Hindenburg: The Last Flight" at 4.0 stars despite the fictional plot.

Like watching Titanic, you definitely know the ending of this movie, but that's the only thing that's factual in this. All the events leading up to the fire at Lakehurst is fiction, including the possible cause.

This is dragged out far too long, the plot is a bit convoluted, and bless their hearts for trying, but that was some pretty stiff acting with some lines delivered like it was a re-take and the actor had totally forgotten what the emotion of the scene was supposed to be.

Great ship, but the only really well done sets are the dining room/observation area, and the crew only areas. The cabins did not have windows as depicted in the film. Even that fantastic gray the set designers used throughout the wide and spacious halls and in some rooms came from their imagination.

Two stars for being a half decent time killer, but I don't really recommend it for entertainment.

Way too lengthy treatment of the 1937 explosion of the Hindenburg airship which all but ended passenger airship travel. The story is about a bomb on the Hindenburg and apparently all the suspects are actually on the airship itself. The plot was so convoluted I still have no idea who the bomber was and why they would actually be on the airship knowing it's going to blow. Aside from a weak storyline, the special effects are excellent, and the actual interior of the passenger area's of ship are impressive, if not accurately designed. And of course the explosion is well done, even if some license is taken with timing (it took only 38 seconds for the ship to crash and burn, while in the movie it lasted long enough so we could get the POV of most of the characters). So-so movie only saved by the effects.
