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.

I've seen 2 live shows and this was close! Did not see 3D but very enjoyable

The Hollywood Reporter
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
A.O. Scott
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.

Philadelphia Inquirer
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
Howard Cohen
Miami Herald
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
Loren King
Boston Globe
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
