Having been to China some time ago, primarily Beijing, and climbed the Great Wall at more than one location, I was extremely interested to see this production when I became aware of it.
And it does not fail.
This drama / documentary really is quite something. The photography / cinematography are of the highest order and it genuinely is captivating viewing.
My only niggle is why is it spread across 2 discs ? At 120 minutes, it could easily have been just a single DVD. It is difficult to conclude this was for any other reason than being able to ask a higher price.
However, this does not detract from the production itself, which is the point of the review and on which the score is based, and for that, 5 stars really is insufficient.
