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

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

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.

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.

Film Review: ‘Cirque du Soleil: World’s Away’ is Visually Arresting Infomercial

Chicago – Cirque du Soleil, which began with two street performers in Quebec in 1984, has grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise with shows on every continent and seven simultaneous extravaganzas in Las Vegas. The Vegas shows make up the storyline for “Cirque du Soleil: World’s Away.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

The style of Cirque – that of an evolution in artsy, acrobatic big top performance – is an acquired taste, and fans of the concept will probably love the 3D film maneuverings of the various Las Vegas shows. But there is also a redundancy in that style, and because the narrative is spare, it does tend to feel like a circus parade infomercial of “visit exciting Las Vegas, and see these shows live!” It’s best to go in with an open mind and heart towards the Cirque zeitgeist, otherwise the piece just blends together, distinctively visual but a bit empty in the creative variation department.

Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D Four New Posters

Paramount has released a new set of four posters for the skilfully staged 3D film Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away.

Shrek and Narnia director Andrew Adamson used slo-mo, close-ups and inventive camera angles to smooth the the spectacular skills of the Cirque du Soleil performers from big top to big screen.

A drama set against a variety of Cirque styles and acts, whose plot is still under wraps, but involves a young woman Mia (Erica Linz) who falls for a circus performer, a trapeze artist simply known as The Aerialist (Igor Zaripov)and slips with him into a strange, dreamy underworld where they get separated.

They spend the movie looking for each other while experiencing seven Cirque-themed worlds, such as a parallel universe where she meets the madly prancing clown (John Clarke).

Produced by James Cameron, Cirque du Soleil opens in theaters on December 21st, 2012.
