U2 3D

U2 3D

2008, G, 85 min. Directed by Mark Pellington, Catherine Owens.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., Jan. 25, 2008

Filmed in Argentina during U2’s Vertigo tour, U2 3D is a landmark film for its creative use of the medium. For once 3-D is being used not for wowwy effects and startling nature photography but in a way that complements and enhances the performance. It helps that U2 is equal to the magnitude of the 3-D format. On the IMAX screen, these Irish rockers really rattle and hum.
