“U2 in 3D” doesn’t just give you the feeling of being at a rock concert. It gives you the feeling of being a rock star. Super-big, super-close, super-clear, and super-charged, it broke the record for the most 3-D cameras used for a single movie and combines footage from seven different performances, giving it a seamless fluidity of camera movement that always feels vital and immediate. No time is wasted backstage, no interviews with fans or roadies. We are onstage from the first song to the encore, inside the performance, and inside the music.
Bono is more often seen as a statesman than a rock star these days, so it is a welcome surprise to see what a mesmerizing performer he is. He and bandmates Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen, Jr. and the Edge are in top form and the concert is everything rock and roll should be — musically, visually, spiritually. This is what they mean when they talk about rocking your world.

Families who enjoy this movie will also enjoy U2’s CDs, especially The Joshua Tree and U2 – Rattle and Hum. Those interested in the technical challenges of making this movie will enjoy this interview with the editor.

    I’m classic fan and do not enjoy noisy loud music and mob. That seems to include Rock and Roll. Is U2 3D something I am going to miss?

  • Nell Minow

    Sounds like it, Kwonbbl! I’d say this one is for fans of rock music only.
