'Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience'
(Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, et al / 3-Disc DVD / G / 2009 / Disney)

Overview: Put yourself in the middle of the Jonas Brothers motion picture debut with the ultimate Extended 3D Concert Experience only on Blu-ray Hi-Def. It doesn't get any better than this as Kevin, Joe, and Nick invite you inside their personal world for an all inclusive look at the band - in 3D!

DVD Verdict: I've reviewed many concerts on DVD and beginning to review more on Blu-ray but I have to say that this release is quite solid. The Jonas Brothers and their music may not be for everyone but for fans, this is a solid release. It's well-produced, well-edited and again, not may concerts get the higher production (nor do they get a feature film and featured in 3D). You get one of the best looking concerts on Blu-ray with a pretty awesome soundtrack.

Personally, I thought it was a well-done concert. Watching a male pop band doing acrobatics during their performance might not be for everyone but having reviewed many female and male idol concerts from Japan and other parts of world, this is pretty standard, so I was not put off by it at all.

Also, I am aware of the negative viewpoints circulating within the press for this film, but at the same time, the older generation having to watch a concert featuring an idol pop band is probably taking them way out of their reviewing comfort zone - so don't believe all the negative hype!

Anyway, I personally enjoyed the music and the film and was impressed by the overall production, lighting, editing and the many camera angles. I've reviewed many concerts worldwide and the truth is that many bands or music artists get this high of a production value in their setup (or a feature film) as the Jonas Brothers have received in this film alone. So, its always interesting to see those rare concert opportunities taken to the big screen (and in 3D) that receive such a high production and big budget boost. And of course, to see it receive the Walt Disney Pictures treatment.

If there is one thing that could have been focused on in the film and not put in the special features portion is showing the challenge the Jonas Brothers have faced in the last three years. From being dropped by Columbia Records and through the use of Internet grassroots marketing and receiving the opportunities on the Disney Channel shows, this group was able to go farther in their career and it would have nice to see a backstory of how these guys came from obscurity to the idol pop group phenoms they are now. But in the end, this was a film created for their fans.

Even Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift fans can enjoy their appearance in the film. The production quality is quite high with this release and with that being said, Disney goes all out once again for another awesome Blu-ray release featuring top notch picture and audio quality that the Jonas Brothers fans can and will definitely be proud of!
