Mystery of the Nile Reviews

Although the title implies we are about to delve into the ancient past to discover the mysteries of the Nile, this IMAX big screen documentary is more of a combo of extreme sports with but a splash of history

Mystery of the Nile is the sort of movie large-format theaters were made for: Daredevils do crazy things, and we experience them from the comfort of padded chairs.

The filmmakers document some of the more-difficult challenges the expedition faced, but they also provide an informative overview of the river's biology and history, as well as introducing some of the people who depend on the river.

A lovely but sedate version of Scaturro and Brown's history-making adventure.

Any movie can make the sight of an unmanned raft going over a waterfall appear dramatic is worth a gander.

The courage, curiosity and perhaps partial insanity of the explorers -- not to mention the film crew -- are admirable, as their trials and tribulations yield stunning images galore.

A startling record of the adventurers' progress, setbacks and encounters with natives and antiquities as they make their way to Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea.

Director Jordi Llompart packs so much material into a scant 47 minutes that you get the feeling that you've read a Cliffs Notes version of the journey when what you crave is the full fleshed-out story.

A travelogue, more than an adventure saga, this IMAX film explores the Nile's cultural, agricultural and societal importance.

By patching together snippets from all these stories, then stitching them together with a cliched, lazily rendered script, this film does nothing but make us wonder what we've missed.
