Movie Info

On Christmas day of 2003, Pasquale Scaturro and a team of explorers set out on an epic quest to become the first to complete a full descent of the world's greatest river, the Blue Nile and the Nile, from source to sea. Four months later, on April 28 at 7:01am, Pasquale and his expedition partner Gordon Brown, reached the mouth of the Nile at the Mediterranean Sea, becoming the first in history to complete this 3,250-mile journey. Their amazing journey is the basis for the IMAX film, 'Mystery of the Nile.' The film tells the story of this emotional and historic expedition while also exploring the cultural and environmental links between the Ethiopian, Sudanese and Egyptian civilizations. 'Mystery of the Nile' is both a captivating human adventure and a serious in-depth look at this most fascinating yet little-known region.

Steeped in important discoveries, yet I never get a clear idea of what these people are up to.

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.

Provides a banquet of stunning scenery while making the most of the sweeping, panoramic capabilities of the Imax format.

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

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.

You'll enjoy the scenery and maybe learn a little something.
