Review: One Direction – Where We Are: The Concert Film

Exactly what you can expect at their South African shows next year.

Starring: One Direction

Plot: The biggest band in the world and global pop superstars, One Direction, bring their epic ‘Where We Are’ world tour to cinemas all around the world. Across one un-missable weekend this October, join Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis for their first ever full One Direction concert experience on the big screen. Recorded at Milan’s iconic San Siro stadium, experience the concert, featuring all of One Direction’s biggest hits, plus a 15 minute never before seen interview with the band cut with exclusive backstage tour footage.

Remarks: There is nothing like a film such as this one to remind the world the power of pop culture. The biggest boy band in the world, One Direction, take to the stage in Italy in front of 80, 000 people as they perform their biggest hits live. The film starts off with an intimate 22 minute Q&A session with the boys which is something unique, but after eight or so minutes you just wanted to catch them live – especially because it seems they’re all high on drugs. I must be honest and say that I didn’t read up about the film before I watched it and I thought it would be similar to their previous film which gave an inside look at life backstage. This film, however, was purely the boys playing live. The film is for fans only. I must be honest and say that I was bopping around my seat for a few of the songs but I’m not too sure why they would release this to cinemas. While the concert film can easily be skipped, it was great to see the boys up close and personal on stage. One Direction are truly inspiring and this film will help you remember that.

Ster-Kinekor is also jumping on board and holding a special competition for the fans. Everyone who watches the movie at Ster-Kinekor cinemas nationally this weekend, 11 and 12 October, stand the chance of winning two tickets to the band’s much-anticipated live tour of South Africa in March 2015, thanks to Edgars. All you need to do is SMS the keyword “1D”, your name and your movie ticket reference number to 33007 – you could find yourself watching this international boy-band phenomenon LIVE on stage!

Rating: 3.5/5

One Direction – Where We Are: The Concert Film is in theatres on Saturday 11 October and Sunday 12 October only.
