Taking in ‘Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience’
How the tween pop superstars come across in their new concert movie
 

Attention “Team Jonas,” said Glenn Gamboa in Newsday: You’re going to “love” Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (click here to watch the trailer). It’s just like being at one of their concerts—“only you can see Joe, Kevin, and Nick up close and you can hear them above the screaming.”

“To their credit,” said Associated Press writer Christy Lemire in The Seattle Times, “the Jonases put on a high-energy show at New York's Madison Square Garden.” But the trio are “presented as so much glossy, superficial packaging” in this movie.

Not only that, said Mark Olsen in the Los Angeles Times, “the songs bleed together, one bouncing clap-along chorus to the next.” And the “attitude displayed by Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience back toward” their fans “comes across as a curious mixture of shameless pandering and discreet contempt.”
