You do not have to have seen any other Cirque shows to enjoy the movie, but if you have seen any I think you may enjoy the movie more. For me,too many of the Cirque de Soleil shows are very impressive circus shows. It's shows like Ka that I like the most because of the story line and the action around it. In Worlds Away there is a story that links the action and gives it a goal. Parts of various shows are woven around the central story line. These are performed on the specialized stages built for the various shows. One of the significant differences between viewing the movie and being in the audience at the various shows is that in the movie you get camera perspectives you do not get in the auditorium of the show--close-ups and views from above. But, from the auditorium the size of things and the control of sound in the room (as in Ka) are not reproduced in the movie. The duet, between the girl and the Aerialist, at the end with the forest scene from Ka was very moving.

Amazing show...amazing strength and beauty of the human body...cinematography was simply perfection....this was better than seeing it in person...fabulous costuming and make-up...perfect musical score....the show was so incredibly amazing, i will buy this movie when it comes out on 3D dvd!
We took 3 children with us, ages 12, 7 and 4....the two older children were enthralled and loved it...the younger was antsy and seemed bored....

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.

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.

I - LOVED - IT!!!!!!!!! I want to see it again! And I will...going back two or three times next week.
There are couple of requirements to enjoying this movie:
1. You have to LOVE Cirque Du Soleil. Not just "like"...you have to love them.
2. Don't spend even one second trying to analyse the plot.
3. It helps a lot to have seen at least a few of these shows in Las Vegas because the movie selects some of the best parts from each.
4. Did I mention you have to LOVE Cirque du Soleil?
My favorite Cirque show in Vegas is "The Beatles' Love" and there are about six scenes from it, including "Get Back," "Octopus's Garden," "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," and the film ends with a group shot of curtain moments for the different show casts set to "All You Need Is Love."
Cinematography is excellent. And the 3D is spectacular!
