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.

The live show tickets are always so expensive, and I can see why, but I finally had an opportunity to see what I have been missing. Beautiful! The 3-D was awesome! Just a spectacular performance to behold. "Go see, you won't be disappointed."

Loved it! Especially in 3D. I"m a huge Cirque junkie and have been to so many different shows locally and in Vegas. This movie combines the best of all of them, only you feel like you are really there since it's on a big screen.
If you are a huge Cirque fan or want to know what the real Cirque is all about, this is the show to see. You will get a really good feel at a fraction the cost of the real show.
Loved it and will probably go back.
By the way, my new favorite movie theatre is the Roosevelt Complex. Fabulous. Really comfortable seats, 20 theatres and sign up for the Icon Extras program for free. You can get movies after they have been our a couple weeks for $6 each. Bargain.

The only thing that could have made this movie better was an IMAX screen! Seeing Cirque on the big screen is an experience all it's own. Love it live, love it on screen. Cirque du Soleil is the best entertainment to date.

You do not have to have seen any other Cirque shows to enjoy the movie, but if you have seen any I think you may enjoy the movie more. For me,too many of the Cirque de Soleil shows are very impressive circus shows. It's shows like Ka that I like the most because of the story line and the action around it. In Worlds Away there is a story that links the action and gives it a goal. Parts of various shows are woven around the central story line. These are performed on the specialized stages built for the various shows. One of the significant differences between viewing the movie and being in the audience at the various shows is that in the movie you get camera perspectives you do not get in the auditorium of the show--close-ups and views from above. But, from the auditorium the size of things and the control of sound in the room (as in Ka) are not reproduced in the movie. The duet, between the girl and the Aerialist, at the end with the forest scene from Ka was very moving.
