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!

My Christmas present from my parents and boyfriend was taking me to see this movie, as they know that I have always wanted to see anything that has to do with Cirque Du Soleil. The 3D was overwhelmingly beautiful. Seeing this in theaters just makes me want to see a LIVE show in person SO much more!! I love the dramatic side as well as the humorous side. They balance each other out better than any feature film I've ever seen. It's great for people of any age, which not many movies these days offer that. I will definitely be waiting at the movie store to buy this on DVD!

Did not like the Beatle section. Personally did not think it went with all the other beautiful parts.
Would love to see again.

Amazing show...amazing strength and beauty of the human body...cinematography was simply perfection....this was better than seeing it in person...fabulous costuming and make-up...perfect musical score....the show was so incredibly amazing, i will buy this movie when it comes out on 3D dvd!
We took 3 children with us, ages 12, 7 and 4....the two older children were enthralled and loved it...the younger was antsy and seemed bored....

to paraphrase someone else's comment on this movie... that was the cheapest trip to Las Vega ever! The aerialists, aquanauts, gymnasts, contortionists, wall walkers, bouncers, and more were amazing.
I'll give this a 4 out of 5 rating... BUT only because I did not see it in person. The theatre audience was so subdued and their attention focused on the screen. Such a big difference in comparison to a live stage audience where you get the "oooooohhhh" and "aaaaahhhhhh" and the applause.
My one disappointment was with some of the camera angles on a few sequences. Saw too many of the wires. It was ok, but those particular views were not really necessary for the experience
