“Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” – Reviews are in!


By Adam Frazier
Hollywoodnews.com: Directed by Kevin Tancharoen (2009’s “Fame”), “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” depicts a Glee concert in East Rutherford, New Jersey during the cast’s Glee Live! In Concert! tour. The film features backstage footage and a familiar setlist of songs from the show’s first and second seasons.

While Gleeks won’t get a chance to weigh in on the concert movie until this weekend, “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” currently sits at 65% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and seems to deliver exactly what it’s promising: a 3D concert for only the most die-hard Gleeks.

Here’s what critics are saying:

“You get the feeling that you’re actually there, with the best seat in the house.” — Jessica Bakeman, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Even the uninitiated could do a lot worse than this 80-minute musical valentine to the outsider in us all.” — Lael Loewenstein, Variety

“The Fox TV phenomenon is the Lewis & Clark of discovering new revenue streams. And this big-screen iteration is just as buoyant and bright-eyed as the rest of the franchise.” — David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer

Then things started to turn a little more negative:

“It’s a thin feature, but undeniably entertaining, providing the fanbase with the colorful, boppy good time they’ve been longing for during the summer hiatus.” — Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com

“I’m calling bullsh** on this 3D concert movie. The movie plays like an evangelical prayer meeting, though I’d hold the hallelujahs.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Sprinkles only a few highlights of real musical talent through an otherwise blatant pat-on-the-back montage.” — Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

“It strains to celebrate diversity and individualism, while its processed music exemplifies strict corporate teamwork.” — Stephen Holden, New York Times

“Even the totally Gleeked-out, most ardent fans of Fox’s hit television show Glee may find that the franchise’s latest endeavor leaves little to sing about.” — Joy Tipping, Dallas Morning News

See for yourself. “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” is in theaters as we speak. Are you going?
