I went to see “U23D” at the iMax theatre on Saturday and it was FANtastic! The movie is 85 minutes of select tunes from a show on the band’s Vertigo tour through Argentina. It was incredible! Not only was Bono reaching out towards me, (always a plus), but I could get a real feeling of what he sees from the stage. At times I felt completely enveloped in the mass of hands reaching out towards me during “One”, and in awe of the faces illuminated with pure joy during “Pride (in the name of love).” I definitely recommend it to any U2 fan, and I hope more artists adopt this format. I love going to concerts, and reliving them on DVD, but nothing has come close to the real thing except this. ( But it is still not even better than the real thing.) I hope the rumors are true and the band tours again!
PS : I would definitely see another 3d film at iMax – they have some deep sea documenary out. But no way am I going to “SHARKS:3D”. No way.
