If you're even remotely interested in Cirque du Soleil this movie is completely worth your time and money.
The two best things about this movie were the closeups and the slow motion, the third best thing was several of their shows were incorporated into one story for the movie. The action in a live show is very fast and dramatic, it was wonderful to see the foot placements, the hand holds and releases, the seemingly physically impossible feats up close and slow enough to grasp the action.
The viewer who may not be familiar with Cirque du Soleil gets a terrific opportunity to see the amazing costumes and hear the original music from several shows. Of course visuals leave you breathless as is true with the live shows.
The only negative was having to wear the 3D glasses which are uncomfortable for me, and overall we were of the mind that the 3D did not enhance the movie enough to make it worthwhile.
Other than that this show is a must, children and adults together will be mesmerized.
