The power of Americas national parks is undeniable. Millions have packed up the family to hike through impossibly lush forests, to gaze upon towering cliffs and deep-plunging canyons, to witness the breathtaking arcs of natural history, and, most of all, to share moments of wonder amid the protected treasures of this land.
A MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and narrated by Academy Award winner Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is acclaimed filmmaker Greg MacGillivrays most visually ambitious giant-screen film to date: a film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to us all.
Includes 4K SDR And 4K HDR For The Full UHD Experience. Ultra HD TV With HDR Needed To Access 4K HDR.

I'm sure the film's three on-camera 'guides' are nice people who obviously appreciate the great outdoors, but I, for one, didn't need them. I would rather see more of the parks themselves, and learn something about their history, biology, geology, etc. I don't need to see a place through a character, which is what these IMAX films so often seem to think I need. There was an occasional contemplative or heartfelt moment which I appreciated.
The score's notable use of pop songs also did not speak to me. The show seems to be aimed squarely at groups of school kids rotating through the IMAX theatre. I'm 55. If you're planning on showing it to kids, they will probably enjoy it more than I did.
The 4K HDR version looks great. The 3D version has some nice shots, but many of the visuals are expansive wide shots so you won't get much sense of 3D from those. But even many of the closer shots did not seem to be 3D at all. They were completely flat, and I don't think they were shot 3D.
The Special Features are also a bit of a disappointment. They are mostly bite-sized pieces that replay a lot of the footage you've already seen in the movie, with an occasional insight into how it was shot. Most of them start with the same 15 second title sequence, so you're forced to watch the same opening again and again. There is also no Play All feature, so you keep having to go back to the Main Menu in order to move on to the next very short featurette. This is lame.
Sorry, guys. Our national parks deserve better.
I would love it if there was an option of turning of narration and/or music on this type of Nature Filming. I unplugged my center speaker which made the narration less IN YOUR FACE but did not remove it entirely because the sound engineer also routed it through the Left/Right speakers as well. In the parts of the film without narration and/or music the sounds of nature were mesmerizing. I turned of my lights and my TV and listened to the spectacular sounds that were all around me. Sounds from above, behind, panning from hard right front to hard left rear. Thunder rolling in from the distant right.
Note to Directors: Please be mindful of the focus of Nature films. NATURE. Including the sound palette.
The scenery depicted in 4K was really striking. The narrative line was less impressive. Having been to many of these parks, I found the video brought back some good memories. It was not expensive, so I'm still glad I bought it.

On ne voit que quelques endroits plus touristiques et de façon superficielle, très rapide. Plusieurs parcs ne sont pas montrés. C'est sûr qu'en 43 min. on ne peut pas tous les montrés. Tant qu'à montrer les parcs nationaux, ils auraient dû le faire plus en profondeur, beaucoup plus longtemps ( 90 à 120 min. ). Ça m'a déçu le peu de temps alloué à chacun des parcs montrés.
A great 3D scene of the 3 characters would be followed by several scenes
of nearly 2D. I Gave it 3 stars because the park info was interesting.
