Movie Info

Well-known Egyptian actor Omar Sharif and the young British actress Kate Maberly are featured in the IMAX film. Sharif plays the role of a grandfather who takes his visiting granddaughter (Maberly) around the country to introduce her to the wonders of ancient Egypt. Re-enactments are used to illustrate such events as the building of pyramids, the reign of the pharaohs and the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.

It's a visually appealing but basic introduction to ancient Egyptian culture.

Nice.

What else would you expect from National Geographic but a rich tapestry of history that's unfolded right before your eyes?

Mysteries of Egypt proves once again that the next best thing to experiencing the real thing is an Imax film.

Though a little creaky in parts, the film wins us over with its impressive production values, fair-minded presentation and formal ambition.

Overall, a decent 1970's style documentary, but this archeological film barely scratches the surface of the sweeping IMAX potential.

Audience Reviews for Mysteries of Egypt

Nice dizzying flyover of the Pyramids and the Sphinx. It needs to be seen on an IMAX screen, otherwise it's like a little National Geographic snooze-fest documentary.
