Movie Reviews

  • the visuals are sharp and the 3-D above average
    1 of 4 by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • the empty imagery of the Cirque shows often seems exciting in the moment, but lacks deeper meaning
    2 of 5 by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the characters played by Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd take in a performance of "Mystere" under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • the camerawork feels natural and unforced, one of the primary achievements of the enjoyable if not essential Worlds Away
    2 of 4 by Howard Cohen [Miami Herald ]
  • the brow-furrowing is understandable, though, as, like most abstractedly mystical Cirque stage shows, the action follows the logic of a dream
    by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the best ones here are the simplest, during which the eye can follow each body's flouting of the rules of gravity and bone structure
    by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice ]
  • most mangled of all are the segments from "The Beatles LOVE,"
    0.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • it fails to fully convey the thrill of running off to join the circus, for real
    2.5 of 4 by Loren King [Boston Globe ]
  • despite its appeal, the movie lacks a judicious film editor, one who doesn't cut in the middle of the breathtaking, death-defying aerial moves by the Cirque performers
    2.5 of 4 by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • as befits a film designed to attract a more family-oriented audience than that for Cirque's steamier stage work
    by Rob Nelson [Variety ]
