A sampler of Cirque

You do not have to have seen any other Cirque shows to enjoy the movie, but if you have seen any I think you may enjoy the movie more. For me,too many of the Cirque de Soleil shows are very impressive circus shows. It's shows like Ka that I like the most because of the story line and the action around it. In Worlds Away there is a story that links the action and gives it a goal. Parts of various shows are woven around the central story line. These are performed on the specialized stages built for the various shows. One of the significant differences between viewing the movie and being in the audience at the various shows is that in the movie you get camera perspectives you do not get in the auditorium of the show--close-ups and views from above. But, from the auditorium the size of things and the control of sound in the room (as in Ka) are not reproduced in the movie. The duet, between the girl and the Aerialist, at the end with the forest scene from Ka was very moving.

Cirque the Best - from Caoe Cod

I have been to many performances and think this cinematic rendition was terrific and worth going to see. The wonderful part is that they included several of their ongoing performances so any viewer who has not seen the Cirque du Soleil in person can witness the magnitude and perfection of performances of so many extremely talented people.

This movie had beautiful visuals and there were no real acion packed fights; however; I really did not expect one. I showed love, compassion and excellent visuals. It was a GREAT investment fr the dollar.

Wonderful, but had its moments

We had already seen a live version of Cirque De Soleil and that was eye riveting. The movie was wonderful and I was very impressed! My over all experience went well except for when we got there. We bought our tickets online through Fandango so we would not have to stand in line. As it turned out we had to stand in line for 20 minutes and the line for the box office, at any given moment, was no more than 5 people. It was my opinion that the theater was not prepared for the people who had online tickets. When we arrived at the theater, there was a sign above each door telling you which door you should go through if you had online tickets and a door that specified box office. Apparently both doors were for online tickets and the box office was clear to the left. Some other customers and myself were left wondering why we even bothered to buy the tickets online. Although that was a minor irritant, the movie was great and we enjoyed it very much!

Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away

When I learned it was a love story I was a little bit worried but t ended up being AMAZING! It makes you really want to go see a Cirque Du Soleil show! Amazing costumes and props, and the 3D was great too! Too bad it was only one showing. They need to make more movies like this. There was no speaking in the movie, but it didn't need it! It told a weird yet somewhat emotional story. Everyone of all ages would really enjoy it!
