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.

Beautiful Film

Visually, musically, and acrobatically stunning. You've already read that it's a flimsy storyline, but that's not why you should see anything by Cirque. You should see it to be overwhelmed by the artistic magnificence.

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!

Good - not great.

I took my 6 year old grandniece and she was underwhelmed which means I was underwhelmed. She is a dancer so I had hoped it would be fascinating to her..... she liked it - but instead of talking about it afterwards, she moved on. Quickly. The 3D wasn't that impressive (may have been the theater) and the storyline was senseless. Go if you have never seen Cirque Du Soleil before.

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!
