THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Petra” is a city that has been repeatedly lost to time and rediscovered. From the modern discovery by the Swiss, we begin our investigation. Steve Burrows is back to reexamine the history of the ancient city. Was Petra’s Southern Terrace built as one giant project? Was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade shot there?
Southern Jordan pretty much looks like every non descript Middle Eastern nation. When the 3D models start to get rolled out, I’m impressed by the scope of the project. However, there’s nothing there that really floors me. Everything is as it is. I’m not sure what to chalk that up to, but it works for a rather droll architecture documentary.
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is strong for standard definition. The Dolby surround track really pumps up the action. Plus, the transfer is not too shabby. In the end, I’d recommend a rental or a stream.
