Critic Reviews for Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away
For older kids or grown-ups who've dreamed of joining the circus, it's a wildly imaginative treat.
This big-screen vehicle for the popular performance troupe would be more bearable if the exhibitors passed out earplugs along with the 3-D glasses.
It's refreshing to sit back and bask in the sheer joy with which these brightly costumed, stunningly agile performers navigate fire, water and air.
"Cirque du Soleil: World's Away" is a rare entertainment, being for the benefit of everyone.
Audience Reviews for Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away
Ok, for starters this isn't really a movie, as it's a compilation of performances strung together giving you the experience of one of these shows. I've only seen like small sets, and never an actual full performance and I gotta say, what this group does is amazing. Visually, this is one of the best movies for blu ray(can't say for 3D, haven't seen in 3D, but I'm sure it looks awesome). Now, having said that, I have no idea what the hell went on or if there was a story being told at all(which I'm sure there was). Emily made the comment that is absolutely true, "if we ever get high, we have to watch this", because this is the type of thing to watch like that. Its trippy as hell in parts. It's entertaining to watch, but don't expect to comprehend much of it, and if you do you're much smarter than me and please let me know what you got out of it. I got that it's a story about love, but other than that, I got nothing but "Wow, that looks crazy!" Also, anything with Beatles music is great in my book. Worth a watch? Absolutely, but not if you want to watch a "movie", but if you want to watch something different, unique, and more of an "experience".
Mesmerizing acrobatics that would undoubtedly be better in a live theatre. The star-crossed lovers frame story of Mia and the Aerialist is pretty bland, but their swings routine at the end is beautiful. Sexiest kiss since upside-down Spidey: The Aerialist performs a parallel Iron Cross (or something), and Mia hangs onto his neck as they soar up and share their first kiss. Aww.
I'm a bit stunned by the negative reviews. For those of us who haven't been lucky enough to see the Cirque in person, this is great. I don't expect a 'coherent' story line. I just expect to be stunned by magnificent acrobatics and spectacle. It delivers.
