The movie all but proclaims U2 the world's best rock band. Somewhere, Mick Jagger's jaws are grinding.

The 3D expericence is amazing. I recomended this movie to every U2 fan out there....

I have seen U2 live twelve times. This was better than when I had to settle for nose bleed seats. This was almost as good as when I was at the Providence, RI , 10/01. If you even like U2 a little...

Not a U2 Fan - You Wil Be after U23D

By crazyforbono
This movie was spectacular. Great footage and 3d fliming. It did not make me "dizzy" as some 3d movies tend to do. There were at times that you felt that you could touch the band and that they...

For any fan of U2 and rock 'n' roll, this is a must see. Different camera perspectives places you all throughout the stadium. One moment your standing down by the stage with other fans screaming...

U2 3D is a marvel visually, but lacked something musically

I was ready to go after about 15 minutes. The 3D thing was great but the band is just a bore. I have a 15 year old sister that can play guitar better than The Edge and she doesn't even have any...
