1 out of 5 stars

Sure, the footwork is flawless in this 3-D rendering of Michael Flatley's high-kicking show; it's the filmmaking that's dull. You'd expect more electricity from a doc about the Irish-dance phenom's hit revue and his recovery from a debilitating illness, yet concert-film director Marcus Viner never goes beyond a straight-ahead, front-row recording of a live performance. Why not a riveting fantasy adaptation, in which a tap-dancing warrior conquers evil and wins the girl while getting Gaelic-jiggy (literally) with it? But first, you'd have to abolish the abominable 3-D; step-dancing demands more light and focus, not dimly let depth. A close-up or two wouldn't hurt either.
