"I saw U23D and I thought that the 3D effects were not just remarkable but historic
. . .the film has ushered in a new era for 3D."

"The lensing is so vibrant and the music so buoyant, even nonfans may find their eyes popping and their heads bobbing. . .High-def cameras wielded by Peter Anderson and Tom Krueger swoop overhead with an enthusiasm to match the crowd's, their arms upraised and their excitement infectious throughout. Dynamic editing, constant camera movement and inventive application of 3-D effects all combine to create an intense but fluid visual layering, one that heightens, rather than detracts from, audience involvement."
"It's kind of horrific," to see himself on stage in 3-D, said Bono. "It's bad enough on a small screen. Now you get to see the lard arse 40-foot tall."
