Directed by Ang Lee. Stars Suraj Sharma and Irrfan Khan.
I reacted to this movie about how I thought I would. It looks gorgeous, and those effects are truly incredible. However, I remain uninterested in stories about people off by themselves, or, less interesting still, interacting with animals. The bulk of the film was just that, and although I was intrigued by the rather ambiguous ending, it wasn't enough to hold my attention throughout. This movie may be good, but it's just not at all my cup of tea. 2.5 stars.
Flickchart: #928 out of 1900, between Larry-Boy and the Fib From Outer Space! and the Adjustment Bureau.
