Particle Fever

A film about the experiments run at the Large Hadron Collider to find the Higgs-Boson. Too much human interest. Too little science. Pervasive meaningless animations. The lack of science in the film was best captured towards the end. One of the experiment directors gave a speech about the implications of their experimental findings. The audience of scientists were, judging by their expressions, fascinated. The audience of the film were not, because the speech was drowned out by music that the filmmakers added to the soundtrack.
