Absolutely loved it. Beautiful cinematography, great story, and amazing performers, costumes and performances. My 5-year-old granddaughter came with me and she loved it too. It was breathtaking. If you enjoy Cirque du Soleil this is a Must Go!

I have been fascinated with Cirque de Solieil for years. The uniqueness of their presentation, costumes and story are mind-bogglingly entertainment!! The movie was no disappointment--only offering a less expensive way to enjoy the talents of their many artista. Keep the movies coming!!

We have been to all the Cirque du Soleil perfomances at United Center and this movie is truly a Cirque du Soleil genre. It seemed to be a compilation of different Cirque shows as we had seen some of the acts at the United Center in different shows.
The cinematography was beautiful and the story was done in typical Cirque du Soleil fashion. If you've never been to a Cirque du Soleil show, see the movie. It takes you into their world, non like ours, and everything is beautifully choreographed. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Unfortunately, due to ONE act, and one act only, this movie should have been rated R. The movie is well made and my kids (ages 4,6,11, and 13) were able to sit for the whole length of it. But there is an act that belongs in Las Vegas, and las Vegas only, that made even me (and I am over 40!) extremely uncomfortable. If I had known this, and I had a choice, I would NOT have gone to the movie.

I - LOVED - IT!!!!!!!!! I want to see it again! And I will...going back two or three times next week.
There are couple of requirements to enjoying this movie:
1. You have to LOVE Cirque Du Soleil. Not just "like"...you have to love them.
2. Don't spend even one second trying to analyse the plot.
3. It helps a lot to have seen at least a few of these shows in Las Vegas because the movie selects some of the best parts from each.
4. Did I mention you have to LOVE Cirque du Soleil?
My favorite Cirque show in Vegas is "The Beatles' Love" and there are about six scenes from it, including "Get Back," "Octopus's Garden," "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," and the film ends with a group shot of curtain moments for the different show casts set to "All You Need Is Love."
Cinematography is excellent. And the 3D is spectacular!
