An exciting documentary that focuses on several aspects of the forgotten practice of mummifying the dead in preparation for the afterlife.

Solid, but not daring IMAX cinematography. Has its moments, but fails to wow.

I felt a great sense of wonder to learn about this extraordinary, glamorous civilisation that believed fervently in the after life and that has left us with a tangible treasure trove as a reminder of its life and times.

Audience Reviews for Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs


I don't really like that the mummies were unwrapped or disturbed but it was nice to see what they looked like.

I thought this was quite amazing as they went through the secrets of mummies. I loved the reenaction of the building of one of the ancient egyptian structures and the part with Wilbur going through and trying to discover the secret that the tomb raiders had found in the midst of the desert. It was quite amazing for real for real, and being at IMAX made it look so read and so amazing.

Awful waste of money, even if I did see it at the IMAX. If you're hoping to find out anything NEW about the pharaohs or ancient egyptian life, be prepared for disappointment. 42 minute running time makes for unhappy Ali when there's no substance to those 42 minutes.
