There's no shortage
of talent among the cast, who belt out the tunes during sold out
concerts in their North American tour on a spectacular backdrop of
special effects and strenuous dance routines. Almost the entire cast of the popular television series is here including Rachel (Lea Michele), the Natalie Portman look-alike
with the Barbra Streisand voice, Quinn (Dianna Agron) with the sexy body,
hair extensions and oversize ego, Blaine (Darren
Criss) the smooth dark heartthrob, Mercedes (Amber Riley), whose
glorious voice matches her size, the openly gay Kurt
(Chris Colfer) whose voice is as sweet as his face, Artie (Kevin McHale), the geek who
symbolically performs in a wheelchair, plus Finn Cory Monteith, Puck
(Mark Salling), Santana (Naya Rivera) and Holly Holliday (Gwyneth Paltrow) who each sing a song as well.
the concert are snatches of interviews and conversations with the Glee cast, Glee
fans and those whose lives have been uplifted, influenced or changed by
the Glee phenomenon. Directed by Kevin Tancharoen ("Fame"), the film is shot and edited with
the same high energy as the television show and it's punctuated by backstage chats, including some
jokey ego-blasting, and by interviews with fans whose lives have been
changed by the Glee phenomenon. Genuine tears and sincere confessions
add texture to the otherwise irrepressible enthusiasm.
The concert experience isn't bad
actually, but it's really all about the fans
who want to see their television idols in the flesh. With few
exceptions, the song and dance numbers work a lot better when they are
integrated into the
plots of the television series.
