Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You can all but feel the heat of blazing candles in the Orthodox pre-Easter ritual of the Holy Fire in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the most impressive scene in a dazzling film."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"This IMAX spectacular largely does what it's supposed to: fascinate, educate, and visually wow the audience, in 45 minutes or less."
‑ Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe
"You don't just go to Jerusalem. You experience Jerusalem. Those are the words of the director of this phenomenal documentary."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"The film is at its most moving, paradoxically, when the camera gets down to street level, seeming to squeeze, for example, into a small shop in the walled Old City, where two men play backgammon amid claustrophobically over-hung racks of trinkets."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The film effectively answers why this one place, not even a square kilometre in size, is such prime religious real estate, but it barely gestures toward the blood that has been paid for it."
‑ Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
"The film unearths some of this history as well, even if at times it feels like a quick course in comparative religion. Its message is familiar -- let's all try to get along -- but the views are remarkable."
‑ Jay Stone, Canada.com
"Laudable for turning armchair tourism into a breathtaking experience - a viewer can truly feel as if he or she has gone inside a number of fantastic, ancient places."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Benedict Cumberbatch narrates with effortless authority but it's the personal stories of three attractive young women, present day inhabitants representing the three faiths, which make this a moving and vital production."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
