Designed as pure confection for the eyes, this largely wordless fare is perfect for kids (how many G-rated films are there around?) and for any stressed-out office worker eager for something to unwind to.

If the less-than-compelling plot leads you to drift off, it won't be long before another tour-de-force of agility or grace jerks you awake.

It's all beautifully choreographed, the performers are remarkable and the set design is wonderful, but even in 3D, writer/director Andrew Adamson's film lacks the exhilarating thrill of seeing the shows live.

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.

This offering might come off as a mixed bag of good to thrilling moments mixed with bouts of near narcolepsy. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

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