A STUNNING film--it really transcends the idea of special effects. It is a wonder to watch--and the 3-d is the best I have ever seen. Anyone who loves movies needs to rush out and see this film!

Boring with very small interesting scenes.

Ok, so this review is a bit difficult to write as I'm a true Cirque du Soleil fanatic. First off, the 3D is superb. Fast acting feats of acrobatics and various circus arts are captured wonderfully well. Much of the music is from the actual acts themselves that were recorded in Las Vegas. Know that there is little computer imagery here except for the \"worlds away\" tents of course.

The world's most famous acrobatic troupe delivers a feast of surreal beauty and moments of breath-catching wonder in the skilfully staged 3D film Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away. Full Review
The New York Times
While the bodies of the performers do amazing things, the hectic editing and frequent use of slow motion distract from their physical artistry rather than enhance it. The 3-D, on the other hand, gives some sense of the scale of a Cirque du Soleil performance, and even if the film is no substitute for the real thing, it is at least an effective advertisement.

At its best, Worlds Away is a parade of mostly attractive acrobats performing physically improbable feats. At its worst, it has the humorlessness of Ridley Scott plumbing the deeper meanings of an Esther Williams water ballet. Full Review
The technically well-made movie simply can't replicate the live experience of a Cirque show, and at just over 90 minutes, Worlds Away still feels long. Full Review
It's better to see it on the stage... a moderately enjoyable film that lacks the awe-inspiring visual and aural aplomb of Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil's live shows. Full Review
