The playlist alone with thrill fans, but while spectacular, the 3D element still can't replicate the feeling of a live gig.

...a heady, dizzying experience...

Political agenda aside, U2 put on a hell of a show. And with 3-D glasses, every seat is the best seat in the house.

A very real and state-of-the-art 3-D experience showing the undubbed work of the one the greatest rock bands and several of the greatest rock audiences in the world.

A 60-foot IMAX screen showing a 60-foot Bono on a screen at the concert might be a new definition of kitsch.

The 3-D visuals envelop you, majestically, and that effect fuses with the band's surround-sound rapture to create a full-scale sensory high. U2 3D makes you feel stoned on movies.

Owen and Pellington create live-motion collages, emphasizing constant, overlapping, evanescent dissolves. Space becomes a character as much as that bellowing bantam humanitarian.

Now if they could just pipe in the smell of sweat, pot and beer, it would be exactly like going to a concert.

The 3D is less than rock solid, but the experience and sound mix are a pleasure.

The 3-D element is unobtrusively handled, except when it perfectly re-creates the woman who's always perched on her boyfriend's shoulders in front of you at a concert...

The concert itself is spectacularly produced, with Jumbotrons providing backdrop and long, curving runways that allow Bono and other band members to move far out into the crowd.

U2 3D is no less than an electrifying, immersive marvel of music, showmanship and spectacle.

Not just a dazzlingly unique concert film, but an exuberant glimpse of things, maybe, to come.

The problem with U2 3D is that the U2 part is rarely as thrilling as the 3D part.

Having these enormous, almost disembodied figures endlessly cascading through space is more distracting than illuminating.

While U2 3D delivers what it promises to, it doesn't do anything further.

Taking the concert film format to an extreme, U23D establishes an uncommonly intimate, occasionally surreal bond between performers and audiences.

"U2 in 3D" doesn't just give you the feeling of being at a rock concert. It gives you the feeling of being a rock star.
