Crypto Rush Review – A Visual Feast but an Information Overload

I need to start this review by saying, in all honesty, I did not come out of watching Crypto Rush with much more of an understanding of crypto currency before I went in. So please don’t ask me about it.

But having said that, I really enjoyed it.

Written, Executive Produced and Directed by Liliana Pertenava, Crypto Rush attempts to give the viewer a better understanding of the aforementioned Cryptocurrency. I sat and I watched and I really wanted to understand, but unfortunately, I just did not get it. However, I feel that may speak more to my intelligence than the quality of the documentary. Liliana is a charismatic presenter, she’s smart, well spoken, but maybe speaks a little too quickly.

There was a lot of talk about mining, but it all went over my head. Just in case you need the help, I looked up what it is – “Cryptocurrency mining involves the addition of transactions to a blockchain by a crypto miner. But it’s a bit more complicated than that. Take a look at decentralization and discover the role of the crypto miner.” For more on that, click here.

Again, it went over my head, but as I said, I really enjoyed it.

What I really enjoyed about the documentary was the style. The documentary looked awesome. I really enjoyed the cinematography, it was simple, clear and concise. But the two things that really stood out, were the animations to help explain cryptocurrency (they didn’t help, they just looked great), and the electronic soundtrack.

The creative way in which the team that worked on Crypto Rush was fantastic, the visuals were really engaging and kept me watching until the end. If, it wasn’t the visuals, I was drifting away to the cool beat. It is actually entirely possible I was too caught up to understand what Crypto Rush was telling me, but as I said above, it was great.

Crypto Rush was fresh, it looked awesome, sounded better but I just can’t tell you whether or not it’s worth watching if you actually want to know what cryptocurrecny is.
