So let me waste a bit of my time to write an honest and unbiased review about this movie.

Okay, so I'm a massive directioner, I asked the guy beside me, he was around 19 years old and he said he is embarrassed to say he really enjoyed it.

This documentary is very exciting with some of the best 3D I have seen all year.

And even that feels really wrong, because at the end of the day, this was just propaganda.

The family suffers and it is compelling viewing.

Worst Movie Ever .

So here's some quick heads-up for those who wonder if this movie is worth watching.

It's an enjoyable film that leaves you smiling .

Worst Movie Ever .

I think Harry,Liam,Louis,Zayn and Niall made the movie very enjoyable.

I am not crazy for them, but I am fond of them and love Harry and Zayn, so I found most of it entertaining.

I thought that it was going to be awful but it was funny and entertaining.

Morgan Spurlock captures the spirit, music and humor of the boy band as they go through a exciting journey in their worldwide tour.

Anyway originally I thought I wouldn't like this movie and would find it boring because I'm not a fan of One Direction at all because they are very generic and the celebrity gossip side can be annoying.

Yet there was enough genuine material, enough silly cheekiness from the boys, and enough stunning concert footage to make it worthwhile.

BORING.. no apologies, How the hell do you call this confection a movie.

The movie was very repetitive.

the movie is perfect and i saw it more than 3 times because it's worth watching, i remembered why i became a Directioner in the first place, they're funny, humble, sweet and talented!


It is fascinating to hear the story of this band became so successful so quickly.

Their dance choreography is dull and uninspired, and half the time doesn't sync up with the rest of the show.

Very Fun, Enjoyable Movie .

Well, It Was Enjoyable.

They were understandably very nervous and it is entertaining to watch this play out.

If they were smoking or doing sex in the movie, then the movie was enjoyable???

We got in and thank heavens it was virtually empty.

Then recently, and I'm talking about a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across their music video for 'Best Song Ever' and gave it a listen, mainly because I was bored and intrigued by the title.

I asked the guy beside me, he was around 19 years old and he said he is embarrassed to say he really enjoyed it.

Songs, that they showed were mostly slow, so it was hard to be awake sometimes.

The movie side of the production (which was basically the concerts) were also quite entertaining, if you do go watch this then definitely go in 3D, this movie has excellent 3D effects, they did that really well, some of the things they did to amplify the 3D was quite clever as well.

Instead of trying to recreate the feeling of being in the audience, which is pretty much impossible, they took a whole different breathtaking, cinematic approach, with aerial shots and special effects that don't seem cheesy in the slightest.

As a movie, nothing happens in it.

There's no plot that it builds up to, there's no conflict or resolution, and this seems to be a common problem in the era when any schmuck pop star can get a theatrical movie made about them (such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and the Jones Brothers).

I expected it to be just another gimmick to attract people, but the 3D truly makes the movie so much more stunning visually.

You must be way over-thinking this movie to call it crap, yes it may not be for everyone considering it is about a boy band but with that said, the movie is enjoyable.

It adds to the quality and makes the concert more exciting and awe-inspiring.

Great movie, genuine, not scripted, funny, entertaining.
