Reviews
“Ang Lee’s adaptation of Yann Martel’s mega-selling novel LIFE OF PI is technically adept….The 3D is eye-popping and the film lively with incident…” (Box Office)

“Lee’s exquisite adaptation of Yann Martel’s 2001 best seller is a visual feast that leaves an indelible impression. Vibrantly rendered 3-D adds to the film’s otherworldly quality.” (USA Today)

“[A]s elegant as it is epic with the director creating a grand adventure so cinematically bold, and a spiritual voyage so quietly profound, that if not for the risk to the castaways, you might wish their passage from India would never end.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Like a lyrical, extravagantly hued children’s pop-up book, LIFE OF PI both draws the audience in and encourages it to settle back, the better to enjoy its virtually nonstop display of daring, wonder and cinematic virtuosity.” (Washington Post)

4 stars out of 4 — “Ang Lee’s LIFE OF PI is a miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“Director Ang Lee executes all this with dizzying, overwhelming verve: The shipwreck in particular is a dazzling sequence, particularly traumatic in 3-D…” — Grade: A- (A.V. Club)

3.5 stars out of 4 — “Lee uses 3D with the delicacy and lyricism of a poet. You don’t just watch this movie, you live it.” (Rolling Stone)

“[A] thrillingly conceived and executed take on Yann Martel’s Booker Prize winner.” (Total Film)
