    Native 3D is a pleasure to watch

    The graphic in this IMAX feature were in par with other offerings in this genre, such as Rescue 3D, Flight 3D, Grand Canyon river at risk 3D, etc. Great quality as expected. The story leaves the viewer a little confused about why this documentary was made. If it was an attempt to educate one about the history in the middle east - it felt far short in answering basic questions. Following the lives of three women could be interesting, but they don't actually interact until the very end of the movie. I guess in a way this is what reality is when it comes to blending religions and divers viewpoints.

    Outstanding Photography - what else from NatGeo?

    IMAX, HD and 3D! Great visual tour through the Center of the World, and access to places you've never seen before or likely will ever gain the kind of access that the National Geographic crew was able to get. Some of the shots literally took all night to set up for a few minutes of filming, but the photographic excellence shines through and well worth the effort. I had seen this before on PBS but didn't realize it was the same presentation, but this Blu-ray shot in IMAX is mine to watch over and over again - which I certainly will.

    Visually impressive, but so-so script

    This IMAX documentary looks beautiful. If you have a big-screen HDTV, you're in for an immersive visual experience. But the movie is little more than a travelogue. The movie only vaguely alludes to conflicts in the region, and realities on the ground. The script just isn't very deep or insightful. Still, I recommend this for the beautiful images. You'll feel like you're in the Old City!

    Most amazing shot for IMAX Theaters, and shot with three different cameras that make the experience like as if you were in that place. Worth buying and preserving this lifetime. And most excellent Music composed by MICHEAL BROOKS. I even purchased the music album

    Probably the closest I will ever get to the actual place, this is a STUNNINGLY great look at a place full of history and rich with culture. I have no religious views myself, but you do not need to be religious or of any faith to enjoy this presentation. And the 3D is superb as well.

    I saw this movie at the IMAX theater at our city Science Center. It was great then. When I saw this out for purchase I picked it up for my dad who loves Israel. I watched it with him and I still thought it was interesting. My dad also thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely worth the purchase!

    This film, had great beautiful locales, perfect sound and amazing visuals- the facts were vague (based on what they presented) and the information skewed, but overall a good piece to have seen in IMAX I'm sure and definitely great for a 4K UHDTV!

    I recently visited Jerusalem. When I saw this in the store I had to buy it. I was not disappointed. This is a great view of the different sections of the old city. Very well done. I highly recommend.
