I enjoy explosions and car chases as much as any other guy, but when the pacing is slowed down by lackluster breaks, I'll take the full blown storyline over the equivalent of car ladder-match pro wrestling.
Again, I'd give LMA the nod if each stunt/ scene flowed into the next, but the breaks in between each scene trips up the flow. And with choreography for anything, a routine (which is what both shows have) has to be a complete package and not moments.
LMA is a great show, but I think it could be better if it flowed without the corny in-between scenes.
Also, while I enjoy a good show of LMA, I really feel that the pacing is very off. The one in Paris has a little bit better pacing, but its also a bit off.
Lion King, for what it does, has fantastic pacing and great for people of any age. I also based my vote on that Lion King alone is a main reason to visit AK even when it was sluggish in its early days. LMA is, well, ok, but not why people are packing DHS.
