Movie Reviews

Excellent children's documentary.
Debbie Byrd | MS | 05/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a favorite DVD in our house. It has stunning camera work, wonderful information and an excellent narrative. It portrays the glory of Ancient Egypt and the pride modern Egyptians still feel towards their heritage.

Like all Imax documentaries it's only 40 minutes long and written at a fourth grade level. If you have a problem with those preconditions, don't watch Imax. We're homeschoolers and we love it. My children pay close attention, break out the Legos and start building pyramids of their own."
Soooo Beautiful!

"If you just want to sit back and let some gorgeous camera work just take you away on a trip to Egypt -- get this DVD.

The images are just amazing... stunning! I bought this for a child who requested it, but the whole family loves this DVD and we've watched it over and over again. If you love Egyptian history, I can't recommend this video enough. You will truly enjoy it as a glimpse into the past."
