I waited five years to see this film before it finally showed in a theatre near me, and I was not disappointed. U2 3D features the band as filmed in several shows throughout Central and South America on the last leg of the Vertigo tour. It is equal parts concert film and technical marvel, as it was (and still remains) one of the most complex films made at a live event, considering the type and number of cameras used. (It is telling that U2 has not allowed this to be released on home video yet because the technology has not caught up to the quality they want it to be seen in even five years later.) Of course, the star is not the tech; it's the four members of U2 and their music, both of look incredible in 3D. There were not many moments that the 3D really popped, as it was often used for texture or layering, particularly in filming the crowd, but the times in which Bono, Edge, Adam, and Larry played to the camera were striking and memorable. The music itself is, well, incredible, and I really appreciated seeing a number of songs performed as they were throughout the Vertigo tour, including the entire "Coexist" routine and "Sunday Bloody Sunday". "The Fly" was particularly memorable, as was "Where the Streets Have No Name", and the version of "Yahweh" that plays over the closing credits is perhaps my favourite version of that song. I wish that, at the least, that the band would release the soundtrack for this film, even if they hang on to the film itself for the foreseeable future. My only criticism is that the film is too short at only fourteen songs and just under an hour and a half, as I would have loved to see "City of Blinding Lights" or one of the songs from "Boy" that they revived for the tour. U2 3D is a fantastic picture of a moment not only in the history of one of the biggest bands of the world, but also of how music and film are evolving in the 21st century. I can't wait to see it again...someday.
