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

Thank you James Cameron. Mind blowing and beautifully done. Great storyline. Cirque du Soleil is a wonder within itself, but live on-screen in 3D made it magical!!!! Unforgettable! If you don't see this on the big screen first, then don't waste your time or money waiting to see it on cable or DVD/CD-Rom.

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.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!! My whole family are big "Cirgue" fans. We are always amazed at what the performers can do. With Worlds Away, we got to see parts of shows we normally wouldn't have gotten to see. Would definitely see others if they come to theatres.

A sampler of different Cirque shows, spliced together to make a movie. No overriding plot, but excellent visuals showing the grace and athleticism of the performers. Sit back and just take in the visual beauty.
