I saw this today and I am still in awe of this amazing production.
I expected more of a documentary production but it is actually drama with a plot - which I think was a good choice.
The plot pulls all of the diverse performances together into a whole. It's not a complicated plot or even great drama - it's simple and straightforward, but it serves as a great vehicle.
The personal mastery of the performers is almost beyond comprehension. The beauty and artistry combined with transcendant athletic prowess defy description.
Truly remarkable stagecraft and production combined with incredible imagination complete an overwhelming experience.
I have to say this is a most stunning cinema experience.

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.
