The reason I am writing this is to warn other people what your getting into. This, by far, was the most boring movie I have ever suffered through. After the first 15 minutes I was ready to leave. I wasn't really sure what was going on most of the time, one second the protagonist is being put into a box and then the next there was a vertical fight scene that made no sense whatsoever. The protagonists longest line was "No thanks.", other than that there was little to no talking. I give credit to the performers however, they were amazing. The end when the two finally reunite was, I admit, a very beautifully choreographed work of art. I, however, could have done without all of the stuff in between.

I was very excited to see Cirque and was very disappointed. I expected it to be just like sitting in the audience at the real event since it was the 3D version. It was too dark! Not enough lighting to show the vibrant colors of the costumes. Too many dark quiet spots with no action. I actually fell asleep for about 2 minutes and my partner had to wake me up! I never fall asleep at movies. There were some very cool acts but if you want to see them I would wait for the dollar theatre or the DVD..

If you have any interest at all in Cirque Du Soleil, you must see this film! A combination of several different shows, it keeps you constantly entertained with visuals and activities that are just fabulous!

Excellent movie for both fans of Cirque or for those wondering what it's all about. The color and imagery was fantastic. The music was superb and the story line fit their style perfectly.

We are huge fans of Cirque du Soleil, having seen many of their shows and their IMAX movie "Journey of Life" (or whatever the title). Although that film was nice, this one was very disappointing. It's basically just bits of their various shows pasted together around a loose storyline which is never really resolved. We'd say that if you are not a huge Cirque fan, pass on it for sure and if you are a big fan, then proceed with caution. It's not horrible but it could have been a LOT better.
