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!

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!

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

This little advertised 3D show, CirqueDu Soleil, was an experience for the senses. It was so full of action that I had to remind myself to relax my muscles and try not to "help" the performers from my seat. Our tummies felt a little motion trouble at times because the 3D action made us feel like we were swinging along with the acrobats! I really enjoyed every minute of this film. I hope they make it available in theaters again so we can share it with our family and friends who missed it!

We took our 6 & 7 year old kids and they were frightened by some of the imagery (think, Drama like 'Alice In Wonderland'). Of course they may have been set off initially by some of the scary previews. But my wife and I enjoyed it. My parents, who have been to a couple of live Circ performances said that this is a great and inexpensive way to experience many of the different circ shows.
