I didn't watch this in IMAX, however this movie did have a lot of beautiful footage of Saudia Arabia. The animation and narrative however were amateurish and almost childish--the narrative one step from being stupid.
Am an arabphile and was very interested in seeing visuals of this place. However this brief travelogue barely touches the surface. Most of the scenery is modern motor ways--fine but I would like to have seen more of the natural beauty.
The third golden age the narrator talks of is nonsense built on sand...well what is under the sand = petro dollars. Once these run out grandiose projects like the centers of learning and places like Dubai with air-conditioned sand beaches (yes the sand itself is cooled) will likely not be sustainable.
However the Islamic religion and the culture of the Arabian peninsula is something that will always be there to appreciate.
Over all this documentary is juvenile and idiotic but what scenery there is is good.
