U2 3D is an isle of style and sense in a sea of mediocrity.

On the IMAX screen, these Irish rockers really rattle and hum.

If you are a die hard U2 fan, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this! A very cool experience!

By the time Bono turns to the camera, reaching out to his audience in a typically theatrical plea for peace, love and understanding, one half expects his outstretched hand to surge through the screen and seize one of your own.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

When Bono reaches into the camera and out of the screen, there are few cinematic moments more intimate.

It is a band apart, both in terms of music and message.

Not better than the real thing, but close.

U23D captures the band and the excitement of their live shows in a way that no other medium could. The combination of art and science, technology and emotion, separates U23D from being just a nifty 3D experiment and elevates it to a pop mast
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

U2 3D is the perfect synergy of music, technology and magic.

Represents what is far and away the most impressive use of 3-D I've ever seen.

The rock mega-band U2 has made so many concert films that it's hard to get excited about this one.... But the film is a revelation, redefining 3D live-action moviemaking.

U2 is a great band, but 3-D doesn't make them greater.

Inadvertently, U2 3D mimics perfectly the empty, intimacy-free spectacle that is stadium rock.

U2 just look like four conceited billionaires who are further up themselves than ever.

It makes you want to climb on screen and give the big, eco-friendly lug a hug.

Ultimately, U2 3D will infuriate as many as it dazzles - attendance depends on how much Bono-me you can stomach or how grabbed you are by 3D cinema.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

If you already love U2 your conviction will be strengthened. If you hate them, it will confirm your worst fears. Either way, the 3D technology is fantastic.

Bono should refrain from ramming his preachy political meanderings down our throats and let the music do the talking. Even if some of that music becomes a little stultifying.

It's not for nothing that these guys are the world's finest live act.
