Blu-ray Review: ‘Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away’ Renders Spectacle Incoherent

19 March 2013 6:42 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Contrary to what James Cameron may have you believe, a 3D movie theater is not the best venue to showcase the super-human physical feats of Cirque du Soleil. In fact, it’s a pretty awful substitute for the visceral thrill of a live performance. The audience experiences it like an English-speaking agnostic attending a Latin mass—there’s plenty of loud pageantry on display, but none of it makes any sense.

That’s because Andrew Adamson’s big-screen novelty, “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away,” is a tonally disjointed highlight reel that stitches together a greatest hits catalogue of Cirque acts while presenting them with zero context. Attempting to describe any given moment of this picture would be as hopeless an effort as Matt Lauer’s bewildered commentary during Danny Boyle’s Opening Ceremony at last year’s Olympics. I could tell you that a hobo clown is lit on »

Exclusive: Erica Linz Talks Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away on Blu-ray

12 March 2013 4:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Executive Produced by James Cameron, Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away takes audiences on a wondrous journey across the many imaginative landscapes of Cirque du Soleil. Capturing the feats of the extraordinary artists up close using cameras that sometimes soar 70 feet in the air, Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away immerses audiences in the inspiring acrobatics of the world's most glamorous circus troupe.&#8232&#8232

Petite actress and daredevil Erica Linz is at the center of the film, as both an actress and aerial artist. The 'actor-bat' started off climbing trees in Colorado and trying to fly off roofs with pine branch wings before diving into competitive gymnastics. In 2001 she began a decade-long journey when she joined the live Cirque du Soleil show Myst&#232re, followed by a featured role in K&#193. She continued to perform in live Cirque shows through 2012 when she made her feature film debut in Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away. »

This week's new films

Flight | Hyde Park On Hudson | Bullet To The Head | Antiviral | Bullhead | Chained | The Punk Syndrome | Do Elephants Pray? | Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away | A Place In The Sun

Flight (15)

(Robert Zemeckis, 2012, Us) Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly. 138 mins

A white-knuckle plane crash is just the beginning of Washington's troubles in this unorthodox drama, which finds his hero-pilot status compromised by the fact that he was high on duty. Between the demons of alcoholism and the aviation authority investigation, he goes into a personal tailspin – but it's not your typical rehab story and you'll want to see how he'll get out of it.

Hyde Park On Hudson (12A)

(Roger Michell, 2012, UK) Bill Murray, Laura Linney, 95 mins

Daniel Day-Lewis won't be losing any sleep over Murray's take on Franklin D Roosevelt. This directionless drama deals with the president's special relationships – first with an obliging cousin (Linney), then with Britain, via a visit from George VI. »
