  • The film Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away highlights both the strains of the franchise and the willingness to promote the brand at any cost - including a coherent narrative. It's a big promo reel, and not a carefully disguised one. show more

  • 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. show more

  • The real stunner of Worlds Away is how it could afford to use so many Beatles songs. show more

    I loved it. I felt it was Cirque at some of its best. Two friends who had never seen Cirque went with me and found it a little hard to understand at first.

    This was the most boring and dull movie I have ever seen. Most movies have a storyline.
