THIS IS A REVIEW FOR THE 3D BLU-RAY.

I will start this review the way I felt when I first saw it in the movie theater...

1. You have to LOVE Cirque Du Soleil. Not just "like"...you have to love them.

2. Don't spend even one second trying to analyse the plot. It's about a young woman who is mesmerized with a young male aerialist and she tries to find him again when they are separated. Everything else are sections of different Las Vegas Cirque shows and even in their entirety don't always make sense. If you try to understand why this is here or that is there, you will run out screaming. Turn off your brain and just let your eyes enjoy all the spectacular.

3. It helps a lot to have seen at least a few of these shows in Las Vegas because the movie selects some of the best parts from each. This will be sort of a video souvenir book for you.

4. Did I mention you have to LOVE Cirque du Soleil?

The thrilling sequences that the couple encounter individually are from the Las Vegas productions of "O," "Ka!", "The Beatles' Love," "Mystere," "Chris Angel's Believe," "Zumanity," and "Viva Elvis!"...and they come back together for a romantic aerial (updated from "Ka!").

The 3D was spectacular on the movie screen and I have absolutely no qualms about giving it a full 5 of 5 for the 3D Blu-ray. Scenes from "O" will have you putting down towels in case of water spilling out of your TV. There is excellent depth and a few really wonderful popouts. Colors are glorious!!!

I have been to most of these shows in Las Vegas.

WOW! A real VISUAL FEAST. Incredible talent and imagination. (This starts a bit slow but hang in there, you get used to the pace and it's a great show.) I always wanted to see a live performance in Vegas but it's pretty pricey for me and will probably never happen - so I was THRILLED to have the opportunity to see them perform in this movie. I was not disappointed at all!

The acrobatics, the skill, the choreography, the fantastic sets etc. are about impossible NOT to appreciate. The acrobatics, by the way, are somewhat creepy at times but even still you just can't help but appreciate the incredible control and talent of these artists - it's fantastic, sometimes sensual and perhaps erotic (but G rated so it's ok for the kids to watch)

I believe you have to think of this movie like watching a weird dream - a circus kind of dream. And, you don't have to "understand" it to appreciate it. Just enjoy the show, the costumes, the talent, the cool sets, the pure fantasy of it all.

There IS a loose "story" of sorts to this dialogue-free show... A young girl goes to a circus and is watching an aerialist IN WHITE PANTS who falls (30+ feet?) to the sand of the circus ring floor which collapses to suck him in (like falling into the sand in the top part of an hour-glass). She rushes from the audience seats to help him when he falls and gets sucked in too - into another circus type world/dimension. Turns out he's been "captured". She see's many cool circus acts in this new place as she looks for him.

I purchased this movie because I wanted to see it in 3D. I was not disappointed. The movie had such beautiful effects and you felt like you were in the audience watching it live. The colors were great and the general beauty of the production was great. I loved the Arial and water displays. The story was cute, but this is a production of beautiful grandeur. I am so happy to have this movie in my 3D collection. Again, I think the 3D was spectacular and almost as good as watching it live. It's a dance in the air and water. Loved it!! I did get this previously viewed, but could not see any damage or even sign of use with the 3 Disc set.

I had seen the trailer for this movie a couple of times in the theater in recent weeks and couldn't wait to see this movie. Other than the trailer, I had no previous knowledge about what I could expect (I have never been to any Cirque du Soleil show before).

"Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D" (91 min.) brings a very simple story line (girl meet boy (the Aerialist) at a circus, boy disappears into a bottomless pit, girl chases after boy and eventually she finds him) to various scenes from a smorgasbord of Cirque du Soleil shows. There is of course no dialogue, so the visuals and the music are key in any such movie. First as to the music, I thought it was rather bland and uneven, but then midway into the movie we get a huge chunk of Beatles songs (Blackbird; Octopus's Garden; Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds; For the Benefit of Mr. Kite; Get Back; and later also While My Guitar Gently Weeps as the credits start), and immediately the movie perks up for me. As to the performances, they are outstanding and at times jaw-dropping (I particularly liked the trampoline performances set to the Viva Elvis music, but also the extended closing aerial ballet piece between the 2 protagonists is outstanding).

Several comments: first, it wasn't until the credits started rolling that I realized this movie is in essence a "greatest hits"/"best of" Cirque du Soleil as it is made clear that all these scenes come from existing shows. Second, despite this being executive produced by James "Avatar" Cameron, I didn't feel like the 3D played all that an important role in enjoying the movie. Third, even though the running time is listed at 91 min., the end-credits are just about the longest I have ever seen and run close to 10 min. if you can believe that.
