all i can say is...wow! i saw two concerts this may and this shows what it was like inside the
concert venues. watching heather morris singing "i'm a slave 4 u" was amazing–she is a fantastic dancer and that comes across so well in 3D. and chris colfer's "i wanna hold your hand" was an experience; it was absolutely beautiful.
one minor complaint: when you watch this movie, you can only focus on what the director focused on. in the actual live concert, i was able to watch those characters that i wanted–kurt anybody?
one major complaint: if you're a kurt/klaine fan, there was no klaine skit. just brittany asking to make out and kurt accusing her of flirting with his man. also, the single ladies' routine was cut completely!
the movie also weaves in the stories of three fans with different stories. trenton's story absolutely broke my heart. additionally, there are backstage scenes like blaine and the warblers hanging out and harmonizing.
i'm going to see it a second time.

i saw two concerts in 2011. can't wait to see it a 3rd time!
This is in no means a bad movie; it was interesting discussion of the 1961 plane crash that killed
the US figure skating team. I think what I expected to see was like a televised "skating competition" made for the big screen. Instead, current and former US skaters were brought together to discuss their memories of the tragedy and of those who lost their lives in the crash.
This experience was unique in that 525 national cinemas were linked into the live feed into a NY theater. After the film ended, Matt Laurer (The Today Show) interviewed Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Scott Hamiltion, Brian Boitano, and Michelle Kwan in a kind of round table discussion–live from the NY theater. The film was a good length, but adding on the round table discussion made the event feel really, really long. I was surprised that the whole thing–film and discussion–only took two hours.
I'm glad I saw this film; I learned a little about the 1961 team, but I would not see it a second time.
