    Finnally something fresh

    By far this is one of the best animated movies since the Toy Story franchise, it takes the concept of life and death and turns into a celebration much like the day of the dead itself. I was able to watch it in a theatre in and like many I was getting tired of 3D but this movie reminded why it can still be relevant if used properly. Its a movie that failed to catch a larger audience in theatres but I hope more people can find this gem and be pleasantly surprised; if your tired of goofy animals throwing one liners and Disney princesses give this one a shot, at the very least the animation will blow you away.

    with animation pretty much looking all the same these days it was a pleasure to see something that was visually stunning and well done at the same time. It told the story of the Day of the Dead but more importantly of the remembrance in such a way the children and adults both can enjoy this movie and really get something out of it

    Whether your heritage is Mexican or otherwise, this story is great to learn something about Mexican customs and culture through this animated tale! The video is of reference quality with ultra detail and eye popping colors! The 3D is also exceptional. No 3D artifacts at all, and superb 3D depth in every scene! View all of the many informative Bonus Features BEFORE viewing the movie. It will make the movie so much more meaningful and enjoyable. My highest recommendation!

    The Book of Life is a one-of-a-kind animated film drenched in the artistry and folklore of the Day of the Dead celebration. Bursting in vivid colors and even a dose of Picasso can be seen in some of the characters. One doesn't have to be Latin to enjoy this wonderful feast for the eyes.

    I bought this movie for my daughter to watch but I really enjoyed it as well. I found the story to be well thought out and entertains for us both. I've actually watched it once on my own and it's a movie that I don't mind watching over again. Overall I'm glad I bought it and definitely felt it was worth it.

    A Book Worth Reading err...Film Worth Watching

    Admittedly going sitting down to see the film for the first time I did not expect much. By golly, I was most pleasantly surprised. The film is visually beyond beautiful. The style and genre reflect the latin culture of "Dia De Los Muertos" vividly. The colors, effects and visual directions are wonderfully magical. Add on top of this the fantastic story and artful music selection (almost entirely done through musical sequences) and you have a timeless and outstanding tale.
