Boasting a title that Homer Simpson would decry for false advertising—it’s easy to imagine him hungrily moaning, “Mmm, a life of pie!”—”Life of Pi” is not really about the life of man named Pi.

“Life of Pi” is one of those lyrical, internalized novels that should have no business working on the screen. Quite possibly, it wouldn’t have worked if anyone but Ang Lee had adapted it.

Life of Pi is proof that, in the hands of a filmmaker who knows what to do with it, 3D can be an indispensable cinematic tool. I often find myself acting as a 3D apologist. Yes, the process is frequently misused and/or used for no valid reason.

There is no denying that Life of Pi is a gorgeous movie; it contains images of absolute beauty, both real and fantastical. Director Ang Lee offers both of those elements—reality and fantasy—with such clarity of vision that it becomes impossible to...

Gracefully sidestepping its overreaching, religiously didactic premise — that the unfolding story offers up absolute proof of God — Ang Lee’s lush 3D adaptation of Yann Martel’s restrained novel of magical realism is a stunner.

Lee’s visually astonishing cinematic fable Life of Pi – based on the Booker Prize winning novel by Yann Martel – creates something of a critical quandary. At least it does for me.

Life of Pi is the dreamlike new drama from director Ang Lee, and it is his best movie since 2005's Brokeback Mountain. Entertaining and visually stunning, the movie manages to execute a novel that many who have read it have declared "unfilmable."

LIFE OF PI is an adaptation of the popular novel about a young man who is trapped on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger. It’s a contrived premise but if you buy into the contrivances it turns into a riveting story. The problem isn’t in the execution.

Despite its widespread popularity and earnest recommendations from friends, I've never picked up Yann Martel's novel Life of Pi. To be frank, the premise of boy and tiger on a lifeboat seemed too simple to be interesting.
Washington Post
In a year when 3-D has added little or nothing to the films it nominally enhanced (does anyone think “Spider-Man” needed an extra dimension?), “Life of Pi” arrives just in time to breathe life and possibility into an otherwise moribund marketing gimmick.

Religion and science have long been at war with one another for centuries. But in Ang Lee's soggy survival at sea saga Life Of Pi, they make for exceedingly strange when not bizarre bedfellows.

The majority of Ang Lee’s Life of Pi takes place on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but it has the visual grandeur and majesty of a film set in some fantastical afterlife or on a beautiful alien planet.

However, at 128 minutes, the film is a tad lengthy. Tighter editing would have ensured that it doesn't drag in parts. The 3D doesn't work too well and is nothing but an unnecessary distraction.
