The 3-D is lame....and it's very dated. Aging folks trying to reclaim the magic....just doesn't work. Even when they "sex-up" the women's costumes, it detracts....and the enthusiasm just isn't there. With all the pyro-techniques....the dancing isn't really uplifting. Even Flatley's violinists look like they're phoning it in with "Milly-Vinilly" tracks...and Michael playing the flute....not. Hiring the guy who's shorter than Flatley to play the evil villain...not inspiring. If you've seen it on PBS..you've seen it all. Rerunning something that old dates it to the extreme. Flatley is talented but the rest...just seem exhausted. Even the audience didn't fully do standing ovation. If it's time to retire an old warhorse....retire it with good memories...not this. It's not as bad as "Michael Jackson's This is it.." but is a close 2nd.
