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.

Visually, musically, and acrobatically stunning. You've already read that it's a flimsy storyline, but that's not why you should see anything by Cirque. You should see it to be overwhelmed by the artistic magnificence.

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 had already seen a live version of Cirque De Soleil and that was eye riveting. The movie was wonderful and I was very impressed! My over all experience went well except for when we got there. We bought our tickets online through Fandango so we would not have to stand in line. As it turned out we had to stand in line for 20 minutes and the line for the box office, at any given moment, was no more than 5 people. It was my opinion that the theater was not prepared for the people who had online tickets. When we arrived at the theater, there was a sign above each door telling you which door you should go through if you had online tickets and a door that specified box office. Apparently both doors were for online tickets and the box office was clear to the left. Some other customers and myself were left wondering why we even bothered to buy the tickets online. Although that was a minor irritant, the movie was great and we enjoyed it very much!
