Movie Reviews

Very Good Program
John M. Cys | Ft. Worth, TX USA | 04/18/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is up to National Geographic's ususal high production standards except in a couple of instances where the videography is a little sloppy. The program is a good introduction to the Great Pyramid, not only including the pyramid itself but the adjoining worker's cemetery and village. Short segments on earlier pyramids help with the context. The heart of the program is being with scientists at the time they open the sarcophogus in the overseer's tomb and penetrate beyond the door in the small passage from the queen's chamber in the Great Pyramid for the first time. The graphics and reenactments add to the program's understanding. The bonus features are good summaries of their respective topics."

"National Geographic Video - Into the Great Pyramid
Very informative and I am looking forward to my upcoming visit next week to Egypt to "follow the trail" of the narrater. Typical of National Geographic productions always informative and puts you there right on the spot to see and feel the way it is."
