    Review: To review this musical movie, we cannot assume "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" as your any other conventional movie. It's a concert movie! It's not an action popcorn fare about how human beats the alien race on the butt. It's not a comedy about a group of people trying to kill their bosses. Alright, I think I get you pretty clear now. Let the review begins!


    In this engaging 84 minutes concert movie, Glee: The 3D Concert movie comprises a tonne of footage from their recent concert tour in North America during the summer. It features 24 tracks, including hits like “Fireworks”, “Born This Way”, “Forget You”, Glee's trade-mark rendition of the very popular “Don't Stop Believin'” and a handful of classical versions like “Jessie's Girl”, “Happy Day Are Here Again” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand”. In between, there are documentary interviews where the filmmakers made with three different individuals who believe that “Glee” TV series has totally changed their life.


    Here's to say, the documentary musical movie is a true homage to the fans of Glee (code-named Gleeks) whom have devoted the last two seasons flocking and tuning into the show on the television network. Insubstantially, if you do follow or love Glee, this movie is absolutely yours at the price of 3D. If you are not, it would be a better idea to stay away or making a bold move just to listen how these talented kids making a raving impact on the pop culture. Therefore, it is very easy to say that this concert movie is no different than Justin Bieber's, the late Michael Jackson's, Hannah Montana's or even the Jonas Brothers' own concert movie – there will be polarizing opinions of been love it or hate it.

    If Justin Bieber's “Never Say Never” is to be made as a comparison, both movies are all about their fans. Half of the time is devoted on discovering the honesty, the life-changing experiences as noted by the beloved fans of the show. Fans, whether been shot randomly outside the concert or during the special interviews are the core of the similar inspiration and motivating message to be presented to the audience. Nevertheless, this one does not go on and talk about their origin story of how the Glee gang comes from the beginning of time. Glee, instead of going into the beginning of time like “Never Say Never”, it remains focus on what it does best – entertaining the audience down to the ears and souls.

    If you ask me about the 3D conversion, it's pretty cardboard and campy. It is not even an additive to the dimension. Plus, the only thing that is 3D throughout the whole movie is the confetti ribbon cannon that shoots right at the end. Ah, haven't we go through this once upon a time?


    At the end of the day, let's ask ourselves if we do really need a Glee movie? Morally, why do you need to have something that is already free, something that you can hear after downloading from the iTunes or Amazon or see something you have already seen before? Here's a cheer because for once again I would say this is truly for those who enjoy watching Glee! Enjoy or just hate it!
