Life of Pi Movie Review:
|Flawed, yes, but marvellously ambitious, and unforgettably gorgeous to look at. |
Tom Huddleston-Time Out
Mr. Lee's film is stronger as a visual experience-especially in 3-D-than an emotional one, but it has a final plot twist that may also change what you thought you knew about the ancient art of storytelling.
Joe Morgenstern-Wall Street Journal
There's an audience out there for this movie, but the question is whether they will find it.
The movie's energy peters out in a series of book-club conversations about divine will, the power of storytelling, and the resilience of the human spirit.
A movie that can't be dismissed because there is too much in it but can't be embraced because it's all spread too thin.
Mick LaSalle-San Francisco Chronicle
This transcendent fable carries a real sting in its tail. Ang Lee has made a bold and wondrous movie, one of his best.
Ang Lee's fantastical and frustrating Oscar-winner is kept afloat on Blu-ray by Fox's highly commendable A/V transfer and a bundle of helpful, relevant extras.
Chris Cabin-Slant Magazine
Ang Lee's Life of Pi is a visual masterpiece, often transcending the boundaries of special effects and what they're capable of, but the film's actual story is hollow.
Jeremy Lebens-We Got This Covered
The search for religion takes a back seat to the spectacular visual splendor of a boy floating alone on the ocean with a vicious tiger.
Wesley Lovell-Cinema Sight
A wondrous tale of survival and faith that challenges our notions of the possible.
Rob Vaux-Sci-Fi Movie Page
Best director Oscar-winner Ang Lee unleashes some serious CGI black magic to create a ridiculously lifelike gang of animals stuck aboard the wackiest life raft trip you're ever likely to see.
Winner of several technical Oscars and Best Director, Ang Lee's Life of Pi gets an absolutely gorgeous HD transfer in a nice full featured, simple Blu-ray package. It is a visual feast for the eyes.
Michelle Alexandria-Eclipse Magazine
"Life of Pi" isn't just a visual effects movie stuck at sea. There's a compelling story here as well.
James Plath-Movie Metropolis
Endorses the notion of blind faith, and denial as a positive character trait.
Felix Vasquez Jr.-Cinema Crazed
Mystical and endless as the number pi, 'The Life of Pi' works on a number of levels, all of them enchanting.
Linda Cook-KWQC-TV (Iowa)
Takes some time to find its flow. The CGI-tiger is the greatest marvel here-the intensity of its stare alone makes it the truest fiction of all. Religious platitudes remain fairly pat; the final allegory's overstated.
Brian Gibson-Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
The morals of the story don't come through, while the film's extensive metaphors are belatedly rammed down your throat like a get out of jail free card.
Sam Bathe-Fan The Fire
Ang Lee's extraordinary, lyrical, beautiful, moving, genre-defying Life of Pi can be recommended with the simple, sweeping assurance that it is unlike anything you have ever seen before.
A dazzling digital dreamscape that sets staggering new heights for what can be accomplished with 3D technology.
Martel's novel could have yielded a greater film in different hands, but Lee's work remains one to be grateful for.
Rob Humanick-Projection Booth
(Ang) Lee has gone above and beyond, executing the job with near flawless precision.
Matt Neal-The Standard
When adrift with Pi and the tiger on the open sea, the film is at its most wondrous: a ravishing spectacle that treads judiciously on the infinite line between what's possible and impossible.
Marjorie Baumgarten-Austin Chronicle
Life poses as a spiritual experience, but it's more like a postcard.
Jake Mulligan-Boston Phoenix
What better analogy for our place in the universe than a couple of scared creatures stranded on a precarious liferaft in the middle of a vast nothingness?
Tim Martain-The Mercury
Life of Pi is director Ang Lee's artistic expression of faith on film that's close to his very own version of the Sistine Chapel, minus the neck pain.
Cameron Williams-The Popcorn Junkie
Bleak facts or magical stories, science or faith, connected or alone, instinct or animals with souls - these are the dynamics explored by every aspect of Life of Pi.
Thomas Caldwell-Cinema Autopsy
