This is the best movie I watched it like 4 times itï¿ 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)s like the old times
After months of watching seemingly nothing but CGI comic book adaptations, outdated superheros and overt sequels its time to break out, get free and embrace the inner-gleek.
Needing little introduction after only 2 seasons, Glee the multi-generational TV phenomenon designed to inspire millions of teens to embrace their uniqueness and be proud of their individuality, hits the US concert trail as Glee Live! In Concert!.
With such a wonderful outcry and following for the show and its wholesome messages, it was inevitable that a movie would shortly follow. With the show based on the stage and theatricality, why not a concert movie? Or one step further, a 3D concert movie?
Limited to only a two week screening (similarly to that of Michael Jackson's This is it), rather than a direct shooting, viewers are privy to a peak behind the curtains. Producer and series co-creator Ryan Murphy with the assistance with Fame Director Kevin Tancharoen have spilced, diced and interwoven two seasons of storylines with only 14 members of the award-winning shows cast.
Revisiting the shows greatest notes, fan favorite songs are reworked and interspersed between the series anthem Don't Stop Believing and politically acceptable versions of P!nks Raise your Glass and Lady Gaga's Born This Way.
Lead by the usual suspects, Rachel (Lea Michele), Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Finn (Cory Monteith) continue the battle for love. Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) find each other. Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) share strengths. Brittany (Heather Morris), Artie (Kevin McHale) and Santana (Naya Rivera) fight the battles within. Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) share the spotlight and Puck (Mark Salling) becomes more than his bad boy image.
Within 90 minutes the concert captures the dual-season shows complicated student stories without confusion as each performer gets to belt out their own characters iconic song. But missing from the line up are the teachers namely Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) who was promoting his new single and the sarcastic Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). But luckily a cameo reprisal of Holly Holliday played by Gwyneth Paltrow makes up.
What appears to be the sing-a-long equivalent to chicken soup for the soul train; is actually a masterfully crafted look passed the glamour and glitz of the TV touched up stars when the cameras turn onto the fans.
Gleeks, freaks and underdogs of middle America get to shine for magic moment as youtube style real-life gleek moments steal the screen. From a Dalton Academy uniform clad toddler reprising heartthrob Warbler Blaine's (Darren Criss) famous Katy Perry's Teenage Dream sequence to an Asperger syndrome afflicted woman who cites meeting the shows Brittany (played by Heather Morris) as the best moment of her life.
Filming of the highly anticipated third season due for airing (in the US September 20th) has began, and the lead up to the graduation and departure of a number of its originals sparks the need for new characters.
The Verdict: Although a diabetic comma inducing amount of saccharin sentiment determined to bring the slogan t-shirt trend back in vogue, this is a heartfelt and genuinely positive pop offering.

I have only seen one episode of the show but u will say I found this movie to be fun and honestly a little uplifting. It's nice to know that the teens in this film were okay being theirselves and some of the songs had good positive messages. The music in general was really good and this movie is a must see for glee fans, or gleeks.
Why is the cast never interviewed here? Why are only the crazy fans interviewed? Glee: The 3D Concert Movie has some fun foot-tapping numbers, but it's a huge letdown. There is, for example, a serious interview with a fan who is MADLY obsessed with Heather Morris's character on the show, Brittany. So obsessed is she that while she watches her perform she begins crying and whimpering "I love you Brittany...." And we're supposed to be moved by this? That's just weird. There's a limit to how much silliness I can take in this series. This movie had me rolling my eyes too much.
This film is aimed at those who paid/would pay money to see the concert live and again to see what was filmed on screened. Those who want to do so, poppy songs, intercut inspirational stories and all, know what they are going to get, and so does anyone not interested.
I want to see this and they should keep on making more even tho Finn (Cory Monteith) died!!! keep making more!!!
Good concert with very good performances, but the musics choice wasn't totaly the best for the fans. Good interaction with Gleeks!
