Last night we finally got a chance to see U2 3D. It was by far the best $10.75 I’ve ever spent!
It’s tough to really put the whole experience into words. As a lifelong U2 fan it was an unbelievable musical treat. The sound was phenomenal, and the set list was a perfect blend of recent hits and older standards. As far as concert films go, this was by far the best I’ve ever seen!
The 3D effects weren’t annoying, and that’s pretty much all I asked. I didn’t want Bono kicking at the camera, or other cheesy animated gimmicks, and thankfully there were very few. Rather, the 3D imagery was used to give the picture a sense of texture and depth which really drew you into the experience more.
And what an experience!
During our walk back to our car after the film, my brief review was, “I don’t know if it’s possible for your soul to actually explode. But that’s about as close as I’ve ever come.”
If you haven’t seen it yet, you owe it to yourself to go. You will not be disappointed!
