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.

Inadvertently, U2 3D mimics perfectly the empty, intimacy-free spectacle that is stadium rock.
January 8, 2008
Anyone who owns Rattle and Hum knows that U2 is a great live act, but what's the point of U2 3D beyond simulating a front-row view of one of their concerts?

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

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

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

When Bono reaches into the camera and out of the screen, there are few cinematic moments more intimate.
January 22, 2008
Transforms a great rock spectacle into something intimate, is a cultural artifact of an era when we could label a rock group 'the only band that matters' and have it mean something.

U2 3D must be seen, not necessarily because it's a great film, but because it's an important film, and you can say you saw it when.

"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.

While U2 3D doesn't rank with Stop Making Sense or The Last Waltz in the realm of top-shelf concert films, it's enjoyable and a fine fat eyeful.

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.

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

This is perhaps the most technologically pristine 3-D concert film ever made.
January 23, 2008
Effortless magic happens all the time in U2 3D, and you don't need to be a fan of the band (I'm not) to love it.

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

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
January 21, 2008
3D is an experience that will overwhelm the faithful and enchant the newcomers...a well-rehearsed corker of a show that hits all the U2 basics while providing unsettling intimacy far beyond the limitation of previous cinematic concert efforts.
