A young couple who is separated must journey through the astonishing and dreamlike worlds of Cirque du Soleil to find each other, as audiences experience the immersive 3D technology that will allow them to leap, soar, swim, and dance with the performers.
Musical Fantasy Romantic - While there is a very vague love story holding the film together,
this is basically a Cirque du Soleil performance film, stringing
together a number of scenes from the circus company's Las Vegas
lavish shows. While there is some mild violence, this
is safe viewing for all ages, though the largely wordless nature of
the film will test some young children's patience.
Washington PostFull Review Average If you've ever seen a real Cirque du Soleil show -- not one patched together from assorted moving parts borrowed from a dozen shows -- "Worlds Away" is a bit of a disappointment.
NY PostFull Review Above Average But in a movie season — and a month — filled with so much gunfire, bloodshed and human despair, it's refreshing to sit back and bask in the sheer joy with which these brightly costumed, stunningly agile performers navigate fire, water and air.
