way different than seeing it in person, but still very enjoyable. i'm going to see it again! the first time my 6 year old grandson went and he didn't like it much at the beginning. he was ready to leave. he wasn't thrilled with the 3d aspect , but he liked most of it. he said his favorite part was the warriors. we took him to a live show recently and he really enjoyed that. my favorite part is the men and the wheel. i saw that in a live show and that was so exciting! i'm glad it was in the movie. my 11 year old grand daughter went to the live show and loved it, and will see the 3d movie with me. i liked it enough that i gave tickets for christmas to some cirque loving family members, and they loved it! every cirque show that i've seen is breath taking.

Wonderful movie and I encourage moviegoers to see it. Having been to five Cirque du Soleil live performances, this was really, really good but not as spectacular as the live performance. That being said, this is worth seeing. The cameras caught angles a live audience would never see, like from above the performers. The storyline is wonderful and the performers are simply the best in the world. I urge everyone to see this movie.

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.

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!

I feel this was great experience. Some best pieces of some of Cirque's bet shows. I just wish there had been more. I also felt it was unfinished. The was a bit inconclusive I loved slow motion and different angles then one can ever see at the live show. And love the live showshad beem more. I also felt tt was unfinished. The was a bit iinconusive
