In the terrain of rock bands, implosion or explosion is seemingly inevitable. U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction; this band has endured and thrived. This documentary asks the question why.
This film was edited together from seven Latin American concerts (mostly in Buenos Aires) and two shows in Australia, plus a special "phantom shoot" 10-song set performed without an audience to capture close-ups. In addition, some footage was included from a "test" filming that was done in Mexico City (for example, the scene where Bono reaches out to the camera during "Sunday Bloody Sunday"), which was primarily done for the camera crew to learn the show choreography, but was not intended for final use.

In some scenes, U2 are shown for a short period of time playing to an empty stadium. This is mainly due to the fact that U2 had agreed to be filmed playing a show to an empty stadium so they could get close-ups from on-stage. See more »
When I saw previews for "U2 3D", I thought it would be a normal type concert movie, only in 3D. The problem is, though, I was wrong. I saw it Saturday night at a 3-D theater and was just impressed what I saw, what all the effects were. I saw U2 Rattle and Hum and was good, but this was way better. I thought that the way that U2 3D was made and all of the 3-D effects that there were, it was the best. Now the question will be, "will it come out on DVD?" Hopefully, because I would just love to own a piece of history. For you who haven't seen it, see it now. See it because if they do decide to not put it on DVD, you will miss out on a great piece of history. Even though I'm a U2 fan and even if you aren't, you will for certain enjoy it. Who knows, maybe your favorite band will make a 3-D concert film at a point.
