Had there been some sort of size reference in the footage, it might have been impressive.

At 1.20 you can distinctly see a man waving a flag whilst dancing a jig. Oh no I was wrong because that would be extremely stupid. What the film does show you is a lump of ice 7.4 cubic kilometres in size which is bigger than quite a few blue whales.

Agreed. From the speed of its movement, you can tell it's big, but 'big' barely covers the size although, as stated, some form of size comparison would've made it less 'hmmm' and more 'WOW'. Four out of ten.

I reckon you're volunteering to stand on the next one as it falls apart, to make it all seem more real to you?
