Wonderful
16 August 2010 | by (Beach Park, IL) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie and for me, it was a wonderful first experience with an IMAX film. The only disappointing thing about it was the short length of the film. The imagery was stunning, especially the aerial shots of Mecca. The story was great and even more impressive when you think about how much knowledge you gain from such a short film. The characters were believable and sincere. The shooting style was unique. It took me a moment to realize the story changed gears when showing present day Mecca.

All in all, I highly recommend. If nothing else, go watch it so more movies like this will be made.
