Far more than circuses featuring impressive acrobatics, Cirque du Soleil's live and filmed shows are powerful presentations that seamlessly combine daring acrobatic feats, intense artistry, and simple, yet emotionally rich stories. Worlds Away is a stunning compilation of acts from seven Las Vegas shows: O, Kà, Mystère, Criss Angel Believe, Zumanity, Viva Elvis, and The Beatles Love. The disparate acts are woven together by a poignantly romantic story of a young woman who falls into an ethereal world searching for a man she's only glimpsed, but is destined to love. The film showcases everything from synchronised water ballet to martial arts-inspired combat, aerial silk acrobatics, contortionism, and the frightening Wheel of Death. Each impeccably choreographed presentation is absolutely breathtaking in its beauty and its seeming defiance of the laws of the human body's capabilities. Viewers will leave the film feeling awed, uplifted, and completely inspired. --Tami Horiuchi

If,like me,you have never seen the Cirque du Soleli,this film gives you the best possible seat in the house.The clever camera angles and slow motion ensures that you don't miss a thing,even so some sequences need to be watched more than once just to take everything in.These performers really are the best there is at what they do,and what they do is out of this world.The musical accompaniment creates drama and,in some places,an ethereal charm that suits the visuals perfectly.Personally I cant fault this film,its everything I could want,and more besides.
At any one time, there will be a number of things going on and you can follow your interests, nudge your buddies and say "look over there!", taking in the whole spectacle. Or rather, you can when you're seeing them perform live, and the few annoying aspects of this film relate to the filming and editing of the various shows included in this movie. During ensemble acts, the constant switching between camera angles means that the performer you were watching, who was just building up to something quite spectacular, is replaced just at the wrong moment by another performer building up to something dramatic. In some acts, you spent more of your time wondering what you were actually looking at than enjoying the act itself. There was one act where (is this a spoiler? It's not exactly part of the plot), the floor lifted from horizontal to vertical. And when it was vertical? Well - they turned the camera through 90 degrees so that it looked horizontal again.
The acts are carefully planned for dramatic effect. They tend to start off slowly then build up the speed and drama. As a result, the over-use (or, in fact, the use at all) of slow-motion serves to disrupt the natural flow of the act. There are so many cuts between slow-motion, normal speed and (it appears) speeded-up footage in this film, that the end result is a rather confused mess.Read more ›
I envisage showing this to a great many friends of all ages; who may have seen their staged performances, but never close up in 3D. Such a treat!
Please buy this for the sake of your 3D TV!
