Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience
Time Out says
So what’s it like from the point of view of an accompanying adult? Have you ever inadvertently thrust your face into a meat processor? I imagine Bruce Hendricks’s film is only marginally less painful. Everything, including the purple-colour tint, the 3D effects and the overall structure, appears to have been taken from his earlier ‘Hannah Montana’ film. The sound quality is iffy, with so much harsh instrumentation in the mix that one can barely decipher the lyrics – which is probably just as well. Meanwhile, Nick, Joe and Kevin strut their contrived stuff over an expansive, elaborate stage set and pull off every naff pop cliché in the book, while outside sequences show the fans being herded like cattle. These songs wash over in waves of such turgid mediocrity that by the end you’re praying for it to stop. Thankfully, after 76 minutes, it does – and all is well again.
