Critic Reviews for Journey to Mecca
While there's stunning scenery in the movie, it's mostly a backdrop to a narrative that's more about spirit than spectacle. In this case, the subject of the film is something that can't be captured on any size screen.
Journey to Mecca is sure to gladden the hearts of spiritual-seekers. Mere popcorn enthusiasts will like it too.
As far as promoting a better understanding of the religion of Islam to the Western world, I think "Journey to Mecca" has provided a valiant beginning.
While "Journey to Mecca" was filmed specifically for exhibition in Imax theaters, it is not quite the visual treat that other Imax films have been. Still, it is the true, inspiring story -----
Only the splendid visuals offer much that is fresh.
Audience Reviews for Journey to Mecca
Disappointingly short and not an in-depth cinematic depiction of Ibn Battuta's journey, but Muslims should find the film touching as they discover the life-and-death situations that Hajj pilgrims used to face.
