There were some really cool moves by the people in the circus however about 30 minutes into the movie it became really slow, soothing music making your drowsy. The makeup was awesome as well as the costumes. The 3D was a disappointment and in fact sometimes I couldnt even tell there was any 3D involved. I think this was because there was so much happening on the screen they had to take pictures from a distance therefore the people looked like minatures.
The water scenes were realistic and I dodged a couple of times when the 3D was working well. I would say the best part was the multi wheels turning at once with multiple people performing and not falling off and the best 3D experience was at the end with the close up of the embrace.
The crowd was varied ages and not a lot of kids.

I am so happy that the wonder, beauty, and unbelievable technical stage wizardry of the Las Vegas Cirque shows has been captured and made available to a larger audience! When I went to see Ka, it broke my heart that it was not available as a DVD. The obstacles of getting to Las Vegas combined with the ticket prices being pretty stiff made the show unapproachable to all but a few. At least this way many, many people have an opportunity to enjoy these folks' art!

Great! Incredible filming! I have seen many live shows and was blown away with the close up filming and variety of camera angles James Cameron used to create the story! It was wonderful to see performances from angles that one cannot get from sitting in the audience of a live show!

have been to two Cirque du Soleil shows and they were surreal escapes from the waking world and beyond beautiful. For me they are like someone has come into my night time dream space and plucked out for the world to see the things I can only in a very futile way describe to others. I have no words to describe them. The movie though certainly short of the magic of being there in person was nonetheless amazing! My husband took me yesterday and we both were delighted our favorite movie of the year!
