Glee: The 3D Concert Movie
Even you have not watched any episode of the phenomenal
television series "Glee", you should
not hesitate to go see this energetic musical
The 3D Concert Movie"
(USA 2011 | 100 min.). You will be humming with
joy and glee, in addition a big smile on your face when you leave the
theater and recycle your 3D glasses.
Based on the enormous success and popularity of the TV series, Glee's cast members go on a world-wide concert tour during 2010-2011. This documentary shows more than 20 pop songs, from The Beatles to Lady Gaga, at the concert, accompanied by vigorous choreography and screaming fans. You can't help but to tap your feet or even sing with the cast. The uplifting force of energy coming out of the performance is simply irresistible.
However, the concert performance is only part of what the film is offering. The film also features a few Glee fans who have been inspired by the characters from the TV series. They share their heartwarming stories of finding happiness and being accepted for being different—a core message from the award winning TV series.
Throughout the film, you constantly feel the exhilarating vibe pouring out of the big screen. You might laugh at the silliness exhibited by some of the Glee fans, but you will definitely be cheering on for those featured stories, and be inspired by their courage, and be brightened by their genuine happiness.
Perhaps you are not a Glee fan like little Kellen yet before you watch this film, but you might become one afterward. If you are a Glee fan, you are probably lining up getting your tickets for the second viewing of the film already. Either way, make sure you stay to the end watching the credit to roll.
As for the 3D, is it necessary? Probably not, although it does give you a sense that you are right next to the center stage of the concert, as if you can reach out and hold the hand of a Glee cast member, while singing "I Want to Hold Your Hand." You know you want to.
