If you cannot see the real thing

This movie is as close to the real thing as you can get, many shows rolled into one spectacular show. Some ways you get to see more than going to a live show, but that said it is not going to be as good as being there, but still very close :)

Seen Them All

I'm not into worshipping the sun (which is what the paganistic "Circus of the Sun" is all about, hence the dark sometimes frightening costumes and of course the name). I've been to three Cirque du Soleil shows and seen five of their movies. Bad camera angles (missing heads etc and not panning out to get full shots of acrobats) makes this movie crap. Sadly...

Cirque du Soleil At Its Best

What a heart stopping film. There are no special effects just raw talent.There is not much story,it is just there to connect the acts.Some of the best parts are in slow motion which show just how risky and hard they are.It is not a movie as such but a stage show. If you want to see some of the best acts from the Cirque du Soleil then this is a must see....

A bona fide high-wire act, delivers towering thrills through its candy-colored 3D ode to the titular outfit's astounding acrobatics.

Even if the film is no substitute for the real thing, it is at least an effective advertisement.

The female lead only says one word during Worlds Away: "Help". I know exactly how she feels.

Functions solely as some sort of bargain sampler platter appetizer, never proving it has a real reason of its own to exist.

A negligible narrative takes nothing away from the heart-stopping beauty of the visuals in this 3D spectacular.
