Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel "Arabia" makes a pleasantly watered-down primer on Saudi Arabia, then and now. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 18, 2011 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Less a documentary than a promotional tool... Rated: 1/4 Jul 30, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member somewhat interesting look at the people and the culture Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member One of those glossy, feel good documentaries that doesn't tell you much. Still, it's got some great cinematography and you don't really expect more than that from an IMAX film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't waste ur time or money seeing at the California Science Center (Exposition Park) what is clearly slick Saudi Govt financed propaganda aimed at uninformed Americans. It doesn't belong in a CA govt run place of learning where it's passed off as IMAX travelogue across the Arabian peninsula but is a post 9/11 Saudi rehab job! Shame on Helen Mirren for lending her voice (her reputation) to narration. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Although this documentary is 8 years too late, it's still good to see that it's been done, and that the marketing of it has paid off (I saw it near the end of its run and the theatre had about 150-200 people). North Americans need to understand that the foundations of Western civilization and science rests on the golden ages of knowledge in the middle east. Don't discount that the Arab/Islamic contribution to human civilization may have had its day. The oil economy, and changing political climate in the middle east could indeed see its rise again, and for the betterment of humankind. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
