Lord Of The Dance 3D Reviews

Killer Movie Reviews

Flatley himself, a construction worker turned award-winning dancer, seems to be using gravity as a catalyst rather than an impediment to his ebullience

Lord of the Dance 3D is the Showgirls of concert documentaries.

[The film] doesn't offer a single flying sequin to justify its considerably higher ticket price. It's simply a blandly shot recording of Michael Flatley's musical revue, as performed overseas.

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Don't go see Lord of the Dance in 3D.

Flatley puts the tacky in spectackylar... [L]ike what might happen if Albus Dumbledore used some powerful illegal magic to meld Busby Berkeley, pagan ritual, Cirque du Soleil, and Irish folk dancing... on ice!

An essential document of bad taste that needs to go right into the time capsule. History must not forget.

Here, in muddy colors and meaningless 3-D, is a video transcription of the (sometimes hilariously) flashy show Flatley and his famous troupe brought to Dublin in 2010.

The excitement factor only intermittently carries from the arena to the screen.

When you're not slack-jawed in amazement at the fancy footwork, you'll probably be giggling (or groaning) at Flatley's overcooked sense of the dramatic.

If you're a fan, then you'll probably be thrilled by this more literal rendering of Celtic thunder, with the Zeus-like Flatley delivering lightning bolts of pizazz from his own showbiz heaven.

There are lots of close-ups of Flatley's lightning-fast feet, as well as some cheesy slow-motion leaps, but no sense of the complexity or continuity of the dance combinations.

A faithful transcription of a live performance, but it lacks the you-are-there dimension of the most involving concert films.

Sequins shimmy! Dances are lorded! And Flatley magically repairs a broken flute with his rear end! What's not to like here?

Music video director Marcus Viner's 3D cameras don't take us into the performance or even up on the stage with the dancers. Stylistically, it's a very pedestrian treatment of its subject.

Even Flatley infidels will find themselves starved for a well-lit close-up of those whirling feet, or maybe just the tantalizing illusion of a swift, blackout kick to the head.

That pre-eminent Crock-Pot of Celtic culture, Lord of the Dance, is brought to the bigscreen in Lord of the Dance 3D, which uses its stereoscopic technology to little discernible purpose.

A vanity production so self-inflated they needed an extra dimension to contain it, Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance 3D won't win many new fans for the high-stepping dancer. It might even cost him a few old ones.

Even in 3D, the screen is no substitute for experiencing the energetic excitement of Michael Flatley.
