A stunning visual into Cirque that you probably haven't seen before, even if you're an ardent fan.
It'is full of the artistry, imagery and magic that has become the signature of Cirque, but somehow it misses something in translation to the big screen. That may be inevitable since you know that every movie is going to be perfect, unlike in real life where there's always a chance, no matter how small, that someone will slip, or miss their cue.
I also found it a little jarring with the changing camera angles and especially the use of slow motion at points. Sure, you get to see a different viewpoint of the artists, and maybe see a detail that you wouldn't have seen from the 20th row, but somehow, at least to me, Cirque is all about the overall encompassing image. The wide panning shots worked better, at least for me.
Overall, though, it was an enjoyable ride that covered several of their live shows. Worth seeing even if you don't leave with quite the same high that get in real life.

If you have ever attended and enjoyed a Cirque de Soleil performance, then this is a must see movie for you. You will be amazed by the beauty and ability of these artists.

Extraordinary 90mns of the most acrobatic and visually stunning numbers by the Cirque du Soleil in multiple Vegas venues. All filmed at creative angles and close ups by James Cameron's team of 3D wizards.
Perfect also for non-English speakers, if you have family visiting from abroad during the holiday.

Colors and costumes, not as vivid as advertised. Many scenes filmed as if you were sitting in the "cheap seats", so you lacked that "front row" and/or "up close" experience... even in 3D! My fam & I have seen live performances and thought the theatrics were good in the movie, but the visual was a little janky.
