Our Score
The title says it all. This is not a big-screen spin-off from the hit TV series; it's simply a film of the 2011 concert tour performed by the cast, in character, and presented in indifferent 3D. Between renditions of a bunch of hit pop songs we are treated to some adulatory fan guff explaining how Glee has changed their lives, plus a few brief and contrived "backstage" bits. And that's just about it. There's no context, no cross-reference to the TV show. It's just Singalong-a-Glee. So, unlike, say, the contemporaneous Justin Bieber film, which intersperses concert performance with Bieber biography and an insight into who and what he is, there's nothing at all here for the non-Glee fan. The Glee 3D Concert Movie is fine as far as it goes. It just doesn't go very far. There's fun to be had, but only if you fancy a karaoke-style singsong.
