Worlds Away was spectacular and much more than I expected. I bought 13 tickets for my three girls, their husbands and all my grandchildren to see it. My grandkids range in age from 8 to 22 and they throughly enjoyed the film. If given the chance they all we would love to see a live show after seeing this wonderful movie.

Uses elements and magic from many Cirque shows to weave a beautiful narrative. If you haven't seen a Cirque show, this is an inexpensive way to experience some of Cirque's magic. I've seen several Cirque shows and I'll outline what I liked and disliked about the movie:
The ability to see details and perspectives missing from the audience of a live Cirque show.
The ability to zoom over and through the action.
Much more sense of individual character and performance detail.
Less flow. Part of the Cirque magic is the ability to experience the flow of incredible performances. There were many times when the camera cuts pulled me away from something I wanted to see or otherwise interrupted the flow.
Not enough big picture: The focus on individual and tight shots, deprived me of one of the things I love best about Cirque: the feeling of being overwhelmed at the totality and collective artistry of the troop on stage.
Net: Worth seeing!

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.

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.

We saw it the first time in Las Vegas during Cirque Week and liked it so much that we went again with the Grandsons ages 5 and 7. The seven year old gave it two thumbs up and the 5 year old was mezmerized but evidently not impressed. If you like acrobatics and/or Cirque you will really like the moie.
