The Mystery Of DB Cooper Reviews

  • Feb 04, 2021

    This is the kind of disappointment that passes for 'documentaries' these days. There are FAR better documentaries out there - even on youtube from free sources. Remember when 60 minutes would actually verify facts and spend months digging and refuting claims? Yeah - we don't do that anymore. Very little time is spent on actual data, factual reconstruction, and careful analysis - but spends 90% of it's time looking into multiple possible D.B. Cooper suspects by simply reporting 2nd and 3rd hand opinions. They didn't even do a decent job digging into those claims. TV shows I watched did better jobs in 30 minutes. Fun to leave running in the background while cleaning the house, but not much more.

    Obviously, you don't get any closure, and that's not ideal. But there's some really interesting theories here.

    Great documentary that covers the main DB Cooper suspects. Very well done.

    One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. There's a great balance of old footage and fresh film and they entwine it masterfully to bring the story to life and take you on the mysterious adventure of the search for D.B. Cooper. Of course the case has never been solved, but they manage to make you feel satisfied at the end although you don't have any answers and likely never will. .... They begin by telling the tale of the highjacking, through interviews with the airline staff and passengers, both current and televised interviews from back when it happened. They stick to the facts of what happened but it's quite intense and intriguing. .... They then start getting into the different suspects and go through two rounds of interviews with the family, friends, investigators and researchers who explain why they believe this specific man was D.B. Cooper. They're all fairly credible as they certainly believe their own stories and reasons and most are seemingly rational individuals - the "proof" they have for their respective suspects is pretty compelling. The second round of interviews fleshes it all out a bit more and adds more weight to each of their stories. .... It's a fun and more lighthearted mystery than most whodunnits since no one was injured or killed in this crime and so many people could have been D.B.

    Crazy people wandering around the PNW looking for a ghost and all claiming they are somehow related or married to DBCooper.

    Overall, those who enjoy documentaries about unsolved true stories will certainly find this pleasing. A story of a man who conducted a heist on a large plane and then parachutes out with no trace of him is certainly a story that fascinated me. It is unfortunate that the documentary can't reveal all the details and that the final conclusion will be left up to its viewers. Pacing for the most part is pleasing and the quality of this documentary, including the film's visuals and interviews, are also quite positive. Overall, this documentary comes highly recommended. - Walkden Entertainment

    Instead of dissecting one of the most mysterious crimes in American history, this documentary spends more time looking into multiple possible D.B. Cooper suspects and by the end you leave with more confusing mystery than you began with.

    Interesting look into multiple possible D.B. Cooper suspects but also never really takes a strong stand or makes a compelling case for any of them.
