4.0 out of 5 stars A Celtic Dream
After seeing Lord of the Dance live in Indianapolis, I had to get the video, because I was amazed with the show. After viewing the video, I believe that the best experience you could have, is to see it live. Because the video quality is only a fraction of what it is live. The images cut every few seconds, which can be somewhat distracting, and sometimes, the lighting...

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad audio and video should get 5 stars for the worst ever
What a double dog ......
Note the DVD I am reviewing is the Universal version which sells for about 5 bucks cheaper than the Polygram version. I do not know if this should have made any difference in the abysmal quality of this DVD since supposedly it was digitally mastered!
First, the disc says it's cut in Dolby digital 2.0 stereo.... believe it or not it is...

What a double dog ......
Note the DVD I am reviewing is the Universal version which sells for about 5 bucks cheaper than the Polygram version. I do not know if this should have made any difference in the abysmal quality of this DVD since supposedly it was digitally mastered!
First, the disc says it's cut in Dolby digital 2.0 stereo.... believe it or not it is NOT surround sound capable since it only has two, yup count em, two channels .... digitally mastered .... give me a total break .... the sound is so bad on this DVD I checked my equipment cause I thought I lost like 6 speakers including my center speaker .....
When you see the show and you hear the stacatto tapping of the dancing shoes I can not believe that they released this DVD with one of the most important elements of the dance show being basically flat flat flat ....
The video production in this disc isn't much better than the audio. Flately was the exec film producer of this DVD and someone should have told the master that you need light to be able to film ...... The lighting tech on this DVD should have been fired on the spot .. its dark .. its brooding and has none of the sparkle that I certainly expected or saw in the show itself.
The jacket says it's got up to 4 channels of encoded audio as dolby digital surround sound. I'm not a sound tech by me and my equipment don't beleive this for one minute, and, of course, it's not in wide screen format, Im surprised they spend the money for colour....
If you have a small screen TV with no surround sound and no digital dolby but only the $ 1.95 cent speakers in your set then maybe you would like this DVD ... course for the life of me I really couldn't fihure out why you'd own a DVD player with that kind of equipment ....
Well Flatley you did it this DVD ranks as the worst and I mean the WORST I have ever seen ..... save your money folks spend it on a pint down at the local Irish pub ......

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: FYI, Oct. 24 2003

This review is from: Lord of the Dance [Import] (DVD)
Make SURE you read dowadiddi's review of this DVD from January 15, 2002 (on this site), as that reviewer tells it exactly how it is. I've got Feet of Flames on DVD also, and the quality of the sound and video on that is at LEAST four times as good as this poor excuse of a DVD. If you really enjoy this stuff -- and I do -- please don't waste your time and money on this particular DVD, but rather, go for the Feet of Flames instead, as it's FAR superior in every way... trust me! -- Roy

4.0 out of 5 stars A Celtic Dream, Feb. 15 2000
By 
After seeing Lord of the Dance live in Indianapolis, I had to get the video, because I was amazed with the show. After viewing the video, I believe that the best experience you could have, is to see it live. Because the video quality is only a fraction of what it is live. The images cut every few seconds, which can be somewhat distracting, and sometimes, the lighting in the video can be too much, and makes the entire screen look fuzzy blue. But, if you are an avid Lord of the Dance fan, I suggest buying this video, especially since Michael Flately is not preforming this show anymore.

3.0 out of 5 stars An excellent show on a low quality DVD., Aug. 24 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lord of the Dance (Full Screen) [Import] (DVD)
This DVD was a good replacement product for my damage VHS copy. The full screen picture fit well on my old TV screen (4:3). This is a low quality DVD for the video (dazzling spotlights), but the soundtrack is acceptable. Michael Flatley is young on this version. A more modern version (Blu-ray) of this excellent celtic dance show was produce since this time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality DVD, June 19 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lord of the Dance (Full Screen) [Import] (DVD)
The picture quality of this DVD was very poor. I originally purchased the DVD to replace our outdated VHS copy of the same video. To my shock, the VHS quality far exceeds the quality of the DVD purcahsed from moviemars-canada. It may be the just the supplier Moviemars purchases from. Although the video and music is extrememly well done, Moviemars should change suppliers of this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, June 1 2012
This review is from: Lord of the Dance (Full Screen) [Import] (DVD)
Very good show! Micheal Flatley as the Lord of the Dance is just amazing. The story telling and the dancing....there isn't enough words to describe how awesome this show is. I would recommend this to anyone who likes celtic dance.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good book!, Oct. 31 2009
By

This is a good story of Michael Flatley's life. It is very thorough and tells you many details about his private life, almost too intimate in parts. The only thing I didn't like was that there are too many interviews from other people, and some seemed to go on and on. It is great though to learn so much about Michael Flatley! He deserves to be where he is at, as he has worked harder than any other performer to achieve great success, and in my opinion the best dancer in the whole world! I had the privilege of seeing him perform his "Celtic Tiger Show" in Edmonton Alberta Canada, and I must say it was phenomenal to watch him and his dancers perform live!! Thanks Michael for sharing your story with the world, and that we now know the truth about your show River Dance, and how it was taken away from you! In my opinion Lord of The Dance was much better anyhow!

2.0 out of 5 stars Lord of the Dance: Performance=4, film-making=0., Aug. 27 2003
By 
Gary Brophy (Minnesota, USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Lord of the Dance (Full Screen) [Import] (DVD)
What a disappointment! There's fantastic talent and effort here, but it is thoroughly painful to watch, due to the film-making.
The constant, rapid shifting of camera angles, including up through the glass floor, combined with the switches to slow-motion video, make the effort to enjoy the tempo and flow of the show effectively impossible. Further, the VHS version alternated between poor lighting and oversaturation of color. Too bad. The performance is high-energy and creative, although without the "heart" of Riverdance. It's a fair-to-poor 90-minute encouragement to see the stage show, if it is ever performed again. That's about it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much camera movement spoiled the show, Dec 6 2000
By 
Emily (Hong Kong SAR Hong Kong) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Lord of the Dance (Full Screen) [Import] (DVD)
I am a fan of Michael Flatley and I have seen the Riverdance video but this one is badly made. The show itself is good but the video quality is misty and camera angle changes every 10 sec. I would recommend people to buy Feet of Flames video instead. It is practically the same show only newer and better. It has everything that LotD offer but with more dancers and the dancers dance more maturely too. Trust me, save your money to buy FoF instead.
