MYSTERIES OF CHINA 4K REVIEWED
“Mysteries of China 4K” allows Avery Brooks to narrate our journey through the Mysteries of China. Over the next 40 minutes, there will be deep landscapes and detailed ventures through historic landmarks. I’d talk about there being a narrative if there was one. So, pick it up during Christmas and let it play as reference material for your parents to understand 4K. Hell, the Emperor’s Tomb and Terracotta Warriors sport so much detail that it’s insane. I love that Shout keeps releasing these IMAX documentaries, as 4K enthusiasts need changes between ye olde Hollywood blockbusters.
