When I first got word of a Cirque du Soleil movie, I wasn’t sure what to expect. After the credits rolled on ‘Worlds Away’ though, I was pleasantly surprised at what was presented before me. Rather than filming just one of their popular shows, director Andrew Adamson and producer James Cameron put together a never-before-seen story featuring new characters traveling through the worlds of Cirque du Soleil and using acts from seven of the brands most popular shows like ‘Love’, the show inspired by the music of the Beatles, and ‘Viva Elvis’, the show highlighting the King’s career, to illustrate the journey that the two lovers embark on to find each other. In a way, you’re watching a Cirque du Soleil mixtape in stunningly beautiful 3D rather than having to pay all that money to go to Las Vegas to see every show. (But if you can afford it, definitely go and see all the shows in Vegas.) It’s an appetizer sampler, if you will, and it was pretty tasty, so to speak.
