My Christmas present from my parents and boyfriend was taking me to see this movie, as they know that I have always wanted to see anything that has to do with Cirque Du Soleil. The 3D was overwhelmingly beautiful. Seeing this in theaters just makes me want to see a LIVE show in person SO much more!! I love the dramatic side as well as the humorous side. They balance each other out better than any feature film I've ever seen. It's great for people of any age, which not many movies these days offer that. I will definitely be waiting at the movie store to buy this on DVD!

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!

Did not like the Beatle section. Personally did not think it went with all the other beautiful parts.
Would love to see again.

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.
