Life of Pi Reviews

Jeremy Lebens
We Got This Covered

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.

Life poses as a spiritual experience, but it's more like a postcard.

The Ooh Tray

I thought of Monty Python and the Holy Grail and the King of Swamp Castle's determination to build on that sodden earth. It stayed up in the end but it wouldn't take much for it to fall over.

Maybe Life of Pi isn't entirely unfilmable, but Lee wasn't quite able to conquer it.

Fan The Fire

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.

There's less than meets the eye in Lee's ultimately unsatisfying fable.

... I found it to be a heart-breaking experience to see this much good work used in service of a story that is, ultimately, nothing but empty calories, a spiritual shell game.

Lee's movie is a grand gesture of filmmaking pushed to its furthest technical edges, but hemmed in and confined by its fidelity to words on a page.

Life of Pi manages occasional spiritual wonder through its 3-D visuals but otherwise sinks like a stone.

Among movies that are intended to be spiritually insightful, this is one of the most hollow and disappointing that I've seen, a surface-level rendering of platitudinous feel-good hooey.

It's got amazing visuals and a handful of really great moments, but ultimately it just doesn't hold together.

A manipulative faith-based tall tale intimating the question, can the bells and whistles of a Hollywood movie make you believe in God? Time to put out a call for the separation of Church and Hollywood. The Verdict: Richard Parker, you're no Moby Dick.

Endorses the notion of blind faith, and denial as a positive character trait.

It is a story for which its elements are remarkably defined, underlined, and presented as lesson for you to learn. It features such striking imagery and yet it tells so much more than it shows.

Ultimately becomes a heavy story that's deceptively shallow.

The only way to truly enjoy Life of Pi is by bringing a pumpkin pie with you to the movie theater.

The movie invites you to believe in all kinds of marvelous things, but it also may cause you to doubt what you see with your own eyes - or even to wonder if, in the end, you have seen anything at all.

"Pi" is a wonder to see; too bad it's not wondrous to feel.

More than just a rip-roaring boy's adventure. Much more, unfortunately.

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.
