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!

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.

We LOVE Cirque!!!!!
We found that this was not a movie like we had originally thought but just a long commercial for all the shows in Vegas. Very disappointed!! Its much better to just see them live. My kids now ages 11-13 have seen over 12 live shows and they were disappointed. My husband and I almost fell asleep.

I took my 6 year old grandniece and she was underwhelmed which means I was underwhelmed. She is a dancer so I had hoped it would be fascinating to her..... she liked it - but instead of talking about it afterwards, she moved on. Quickly.
The 3D wasn't that impressive (may have been the theater) and the storyline was senseless.
Go if you have never seen Cirque Du Soleil before.

Absolutely loved it. Beautiful cinematography, great story, and amazing performers, costumes and performances. My 5-year-old granddaughter came with me and she loved it too. It was breathtaking. If you enjoy Cirque du Soleil this is a Must Go!
