    This Blu-ray disc will play on standard Blu-ray players & 3D Blu-ray players. To watch this movie in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player.

    From the Academy Award®-nominated producers of Everest and Grand Canyon Adventure comes an all-new experience about the extraordinary culture and history of Arabia. With breathtaking cinematography, go deep into the heart of this exotic land to experience the great mystique of Arabia. Like riding a magic carpet, you will discover the lost city of Madain Saleh and explore its ancient tombs, travel along the early frankincense trade route, confront a wild desert sandstorm, and dive among the gorgeous coral reefs and ancient shipwrecks of the dazzling Red Sea. Plus, in a series of stunning time-lapse images, join the largest single human gathering on Earth for an incredible pilgrimage.

    Narrated by Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren, this powerful and surprising tour de force offers a deeper understanding of a fascinating culture and way of life that has largely remained hidden, until now.

    Great 3D Blu-Ray.

    It was just slapped together for reasons other than for the purpose of educating viewers.

    I wondered after reading the sole reviewer's rather negative and empty post about how the lack of "3D" would affect my viewing, but frankly I was not seeking a "3D thriller" and his review made no comment about the content! . I wasn't seeking a 3D adventure...rather an overview of a journey I'd like to take but may never get there. But I decided to trust my instincts and ignored the negative bought the film and am glad to report to you that I got exactly what I'd hoped for!....a beautifully filmed presentation of a faraway land. It gave me an overview of its history, culture, music, religion and geography. I thought it was a sublime "journey"..exotic and impressive. The only thing that could have made it better would have been to see it on a 25ft high IMAX screen to get a sense of the sweeping landscapes both in the desert, underwater and in the cities, especially in Makkah, but alas my city doesn't have an Imax.
    I appreciated the history lesson and background on the Arabian precursor culture, of the Nabateans whose empire at the time was extremely successful by any standards, as providers to the Roman Empire of special spices and frankincense which provided enough capital to build monuments and structures that still awe the observer with their beauty and endurance.
    -- views of their magnificent ruins carved into sandstone in hidden places in the desert was all new information to me-- though the scientific and scholarly history during the "golden age of Islam" which sparked the European renaissance of the 15th century was familiar, but overall it was well organized and integrated.

    I found this Blu Ray 3D presentation of Saudi Arabia very enjoyable and very educational. It felt very real and I thought the 3D effect was good. I may not go to the dessert since it is too hot for me but this 3D DVD takes you there virtually.

    Arabia 3D is all it's promised to be. This version has gorgeous colors and a truly immersive 3d experience. The suject matter is diverse and for those who can appreciate the beauty of this land, it's well worth viewing/purchasing!

    Some of the historical recreations were nicely filmed, HD is generally well done. Some of the scenes at Mecca were really impressive. However, I had hoped for something more informative, and the fish-eye lens shots just don't look good for smaller screens (meaning not on a huge IMAX screen). Both the 3-D and 2-D versions on are on one disc (not a big deal), but the feature is only 46 minutes long, the making of is 26 minutes long, more than half the length of the actual "feature". It really felt like a project by a serious film-school student (not helped by the main narrator being basically that), with some animated aspects that really take you "out of the experience". You find yourself wondering about the production, about why do we need to have fisheye lens shots, animations, shots of the student greeting his brother, etc. Helen Mirren does not do the majority of the narration. I don't think the description is terribly misleading, but you do not get anything truly in-depth. Yes, you see Madain Saleh, but you don't get a terribly thorough history or details about it. Yes they show the frankincense trade route (another animation, of course). Some of the shots of cities and landscapes are very nice, but I don't think I would have bought this, even at this price, knowing what I know now. I'm kind of glad I watched it for the few nuggets of intriguing history about the golden age of Islam, but I wish I could return it and look for something more educational. Amazon's return policy does not allow for the return of opened "movies", that's why I felt I should provide some of this information for others considering the purchase.

    Much of it is boring and not in 3D. The best pictures of the cities and sites are not in 3D. Would not recommend.

    Imax conversion is so good - the story telling is amazing especially the one about Thamud (the Nabateeans) check out Aad and Thamud in wiki to see more knowledge.

    Great 3D Blu-Ray.
    Nice eye candy for the price. Shortly before I took delivery of my new LG 3D TV from Amazon, I bought a bunch of these short themed DVDs. The IMAX productions are well presented and really pop.
