Movie review score
3/5

What’s it about?
A misfit searches through seven fantasy worlds for the aerialist she’s fallen for. Who are we kidding? It’s Cirque du Soleil’s Greatest Hits.

What did we think?
Stephen Scott says: when asked to describe a traveling Cirque du Soleil show, I said “it’s something you have to experience for yourself”. The same can be said for this mish-mash of the company’s seven Las Vegas live shows.

How does it compare to a live show?

  • Nowhere near as good: when you see it live you are immersed in the breathtaking experience. This is more like a Whitman’s Sampler – with so many amazing bits, and the flimsiest of plots, it gets surprisingly dull.
  • Just as good: HOW DO THEY DO THAT? Wow. What an astonishing display of human ability.
  • Even better than the real thing: you get to see all the minute details, plus some things you’ll never see live.
