Ancient Mysteries - The Lost Ark of the Covenant (2005) Review
(More customer reviews)Although I am not a historian, I am very interested in ancient history, especially about religions. I borrowed this DVD from a library and it did not meet my expectation. It revealed whereabouts of the lost Ark and most people were looking for it in Jerusalem. Actually, it is in totally unexpected location with fantastic assumptions. I won't reveal it as it will ruin your interests. However, I want to question that if we can go to Mars and other planets in the Space but why can't we go inside of that place to see whether it is the "real" lost Ark. And the keeper of that place should share the Ark of Covenant (if that is a real one) to other people, especially the Jews and Christians, instead of keeping it as a private property. In common sense, any God or Goddess want to share (spread as much as possible of) the good things about the religion so why a group of people kept it as a secret piece even without sharing to its people (in that country)!!
BTW, the quality of this DVD, which was released in 1994 as VHS, is very poor. Although I used Sony Fontopia earphone to boost the sound quality, I heard annoying background noises from the narrator. The voices of historians are clearer and better than the narrator somehow. If you are wondering whether to keep this in your library, check out from library or Blockbuster first. I also recommend "Lost Treasures: Ancient Jerusalem" that has better quality with very interesting computer remodeling of ancient Jerusalem and the temples.
