We had family from out of town and wanted to do something special - Cirque Du Soleil filled the bill. As a group we had a wide range of interests, ages and views. Also one hearing impaired family member. This movie rose above expectations and was enjoyed by all for it's special effects, talented qymnasts and elaborate sets. No "real" acting or storyline but just a fun movie for the family to watch and talk about after.

CIRQUE 3D

way different than seeing it in person, but still very enjoyable. i'm going to see it again! the first time my 6 year old grandson went and he didn't like it much at the beginning. he was ready to leave. he wasn't thrilled with the 3d aspect , but he liked most of it. he said his favorite part was the warriors. we took him to a live show recently and he really enjoyed that. my favorite part is the men and the wheel. i saw that in a live show and that was so exciting! i'm glad it was in the movie. my 11 year old grand daughter went to the live show and loved it, and will see the 3d movie with me. i liked it enough that i gave tickets for christmas to some cirque loving family members, and they loved it! every cirque show that i've seen is breath taking.

Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D

Saw it yesterday with a friend. It was wonderful. You don't have to be a Cirque fan like I am to love this absolutely beautifully filmed extravaganza. I actually want to see it again. I have family in Las Vegas and since seeing Worlds Away, I know I want to see the Beatles Cirque show next time I visit. Whenever they bring a traveling show to Chicago I try to go. James Cameron did an amazing job and gave us all a beautiful Christmas present. I plan on seeing it again. I would rate this movie acceptable for all. The time goes by so fast you are surprised when it is over. You want more. 3D certainly has changed. The last 3D movie I saw was years ago and I think it was the first, House of Wax. The techniques used in the filming bring right into the world of Cirque du Soleil. You feel like you are roaming along with the principals. Go see it! You will love it!

Worth seeing but a different animal from live Cirque altogether

By Monopolist

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: Liked: 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. Disliked: 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!

I feel this was great experience. Some best pieces of some of Cirque's bet shows. I just wish there had been more. I also felt it was unfinished. The was a bit inconclusive I loved slow motion and different angles then one can ever see at the live show. And love the live showshad beem more. I also felt tt was unfinished. The was a bit iinconusive
