Life of Pi' more style than substance

Film visually stunning, somewhat lacking in story

For many years, when a novel was referred to as 'unfilmable,' movie studios accepted it as such and more or less ignored it. Recently, however, it seems that Hollywood has taken that unfilmable label and viewed it as almost a dare.

The latest accepted challenge is 'Life of Pi,' based on Yann Martel's 2001 novel of the same name. The fantasy novel was adapted for the screen by David Magee ('Finding Neverland') and directed by Ang Lee ('Taking Woodstock').
