Another IMAX miss., 18 May 2000
Author: Shiva-11 from Vancouver, BC

Cirque du Soleil The Journey of Man: This unique circus troupe from Montreal ha been a feature act in Vegas for several years, but does their act translate well to the big screen (and being IMAX I mean B-I-G!)?

The first three segments are particularly uneventful: synchronized swimming has never interested me inI in 2-D and don't care for it any more in 3-D; blasé trapeze work with women suited up to look like canaries (they're hooked up to bungees so there isn't even a sense of danger) and a surreal balancing act that does little more than flaunt beefcake. The final two segments are much better and take advantage of the 3-D experience: two "statues" (a painted duo) move in slow motion and perform an amazing balancing act, whereas the final acrobatic scene is extremely imaginative and well choreographed.

Next time you're in Vegas stop in for the whole show, but make the movie a miss.
