Two words: Michael Flatley
1 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

For those who've seen the Riverdance, Lord of the Dance won't be much of a surprise. Similar choreography, music and even the same dancer! But there is something about Flatley's group that makes you stuck to the screen. A definite Must Be Seen even if you're not a dance-type person.

Like somebody's said before this is really Michael Flatley at his best. Although he is copying the convention of Riverdance he's managed to make the show entirely his own and somehow 'fresh'. New costumes, the idea of telling the story with a dance and a bit of pop music added on top of it made Lord of The Dance one of the best dance-shows ever.

A genuine masterpiece although spoilt by a terrible director and montage. But still deserves 7/10.
