Unfortunately, due to ONE act, and one act only, this movie should have been rated R. The movie is well made and my kids (ages 4,6,11, and 13) were able to sit for the whole length of it. But there is an act that belongs in Las Vegas, and las Vegas only, that made even me (and I am over 40!) extremely uncomfortable. If I had known this, and I had a choice, I would NOT have gone to the movie.

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!

Sometimes dreams come true, that was for me to see Cirque du Soleil performance in the movie theater.
It is absolutely amazing, poetic, magic, beautiful! The costumes, music and artists perfection and charm are incredible.
I appreciated this chance, thank you!

We had already seen a live version of Cirque De Soleil and that was eye riveting. The movie was wonderful and I was very impressed! My over all experience went well except for when we got there. We bought our tickets online through Fandango so we would not have to stand in line. As it turned out we had to stand in line for 20 minutes and the line for the box office, at any given moment, was no more than 5 people. It was my opinion that the theater was not prepared for the people who had online tickets. When we arrived at the theater, there was a sign above each door telling you which door you should go through if you had online tickets and a door that specified box office. Apparently both doors were for online tickets and the box office was clear to the left. Some other customers and myself were left wondering why we even bothered to buy the tickets online. Although that was a minor irritant, the movie was great and we enjoyed it very much!

It's so unusal for a movie, and you have to have a open mind... But all in all it was so extint and in rare form. The beauty of the performances was Breath-taking!!! Memorizing performances, About 15 minutes into the film, I thought to myslef that the first 15-20 minutes paid for itself(3D ticket prices)... Try something new and rare, Go see it...
Cheaper then a trip to Vegas- Flight, hotel, show tickets, snacks... Ummm No brainer! Go see this while you can!
