Beautiful documentaryBy a customer , 09 Feb 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I've seen 2 negative comentaries about this DVD saying it's a documentary. Of course it's. It's very clear in the info provided but it's a very beautiful docu with some useful information. I watch movies usually in my PC attached to a 40'' screen and sometimes I take snapshots and from these one I took more than a hundred. Almost everyframe is like a piece of art. I have travelled a lot and love the Arabe culture. One of my dreams is to visit la Mecca but for obvious reasons is almost impossibly so watching this dvd put my mind to rest. It was like I was there.
these people also complain about the 3D. I think this technology is quite new and I didn't bother with it. Just watching it in BluRay is enough. I highly recommend it..

Very Amateurish ProductionBy Chrisaljack (321 reviews) from Hellingly , 19 Jan 2013Very amateurish production with inconsistent 3D depth which is very off-putting (probably better to watch in 2D). Reasonable documentary on Arabian history but not a patch on the quality of typical BBC documentaries of this type.
Disappointing ArabiaBy riskysmith (121 reviews) , 12 Sep 2012This was a disappointment. The disc was faulty in as much as the sound quality was not of the best. Also I had expected views of many of the fine Islamic buildings in 3d, and not only were there very few actual buildings on show but much of the 40 minutes were not in 3d
not much 3dBy a customer , 17 Aug 2012nice scenery, not much 3d
was disappointed gave a good overall view of arabia
but not much of a three d film would have been ok in 2d if thats what you like
Beuatifully shot but a rather shallow narrative.By TheyCallMeMrGlass (42 reviews) from London , 24 Apr 2012This was actually a beautifully shot 40 minute documentary as it attempts to give a very streamlined history of Saudi Arabia. Charting the ups and downs of its wealth, education and changes in religious faith. As the documentary approaches the end, it seems to place an emphasise in educating the viewer on what the Islamic faith is really about (not too heavy handed) but how it complements Christianity and Hinduism.
All in all, the history is interesting and you want to know more but the narrative depth is too shallow but it is a visually splendid journey. I watched it in 3D and is often effective but it does suffer from some glaring ghosting issues.
There is an option to watch it in 2D too.
beautifully shot and nicely pacedBy Ryan_Surrey (15 reviews) , 26 Feb 2012Really liked this, beautifully shot and nicely paced. If you like the BBC documentaries such as South Pacific and Yellowstone, you'll probably enjoy this one.
