    • Risen's 2160p/HDR-enabled UHD presentation offers an honest upgrade from the movie's 1080p counterpart. At least going on the early returns here, this appears to be a very good representation of the sort...

    • Another in a long line of Christian-themed movies from Affirm Films that doesn't quite hit the mark, 'Risen' comes across like a decently produced made-for-TV movie instead of the epic adventure it deserves...
