It's all quite lovely, mesmerizing – and right on the edge of sleep-inducing.

Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away has plenty of eye candy... What the movie lacks, unfortunately, is coherence.

The real stunner of Worlds Away is how it could afford to use so many Beatles songs.

The movie is something of a compositional nightmare, worlds away, one might say, from the artistry so associated with Cirque.

Less expensive than a trip to Vegas!

Worlds Away indeed
