The Book of Life is a American 3D computer-animated adventure musical comedy film produced by Reel FX Creative Studios and distributed by 20th. The Book of Life's gorgeous animation is a treat, but it's a pity that its story lacks the same level of craft and detail that its thrilling visuals provide. A young man embarks on a journey that spans three fantastical worlds in this incredible animated adventure from producer Guillermo del Toro and director.

Smaller children might find the scenes in the Land of the Remembered scary, especially those featuring the king of the underworld, Xibalba who's named after the Mayan name for the realm of the dead. The characters in the Land of the Remembered are traditional Day of the Dead figures, which are skeletons in brightly colored clothing.

One dead character's head is separate from his body. There are some bullfighting scenes and battle sequences that are a little violent, and things get somewhat darker when the action shifts to the underworld there's a demonic bull surrounded by fire.

Expect a little bit of kissing and a few insults "kick his butt," "lazy bum" , too. It's also an invitation to explore and learn more about Mexican culture, from the details of the Day of the Dead celebrations to legendary creatures like Chupacabras. Stay up to date on new reviews. Inside, he meets the Candle Maker, the overseer of mortal lives and the Book of Life's keeper. The Candle Maker sees that Manolo's story in the Book of Life is blank and can be rewritten by himself, so he takes them to the Land of the Forgotten.

They find La Muerte at Xibalba's castle and expose his cheating.

Furious, La Muerte lectures Xibalba before offering a new wager at Manolo's request: Manolo's life will be returned if he completes a challenge of Xibalba's choosing, but if he fails, he will be forgotten and Xibalba will keep both realms.

Xibalba sets Manolo against a giant bull skeleton made from the skeletons of every bull slain by the Sanchez family, believing that to be his greatest fear. Their wedding is interrupted by Chakal, who leads his army to San Angel to find the Medal, which was previously his.

Chakal kills Carlos, who arrives in the Land of the Remembered in time to see Manolo's fight. Manolo, realizing his fear is actually of being himself , refuses to fight and instead sings an apology to the bull, appeasing it and touching everyone present. Impressed, the deities resurrect Manolo and send him and his family to San Angel to protect it.

In the present, Mary Beth finishes the story, and the amazed children leave the museum. Mary Beth and a security guard reveal themselves to be La Muerte and Xibalba in disguise. The Candle Maker appears and encourages the audience to write their own story. The Book of Life was originally optioned by DreamWorks Animation in , but never went beyond development because of "creative differences".

The film was initially given a release date of October 10, ; [12] however, this was eventually moved back by a week. Jorge Gutierrez , co-creator of Nickelodeon 's El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera , wanted to make the final animation look like the concept artwork saying: The mandate of this movie was: Our 'Art of' book is going to look exactly like the movie.

In April , it was announced Gustavo Santaolalla and Paul Williams would be adapting pop songs for the film. The Book of Life received generally positive reviews from critics.

The site's critical consensus reads " The Book of Life ' s gorgeous animation is a treat, but it's a pity that its story lacks the same level of craft and detail that its thrilling visuals provide. Geoff Berkshire of Variety gave the film a positive review, saying "Repping a major step forward for Dallas-based Reel FX Animation Studios after their anemic feature bow on last year's Free Birds , the beautifully rendered CG animation brings an unusually warm and heartfelt quality to the high-tech medium and emerges as the film's true calling card.

Club gave the film a B-, saying "Ultimately, what drags The Book Of Life down is its insistence on trying to update an original folkloric story for a contemporary audience. In practice, this means adding some pop-cultural touches that only serve to take the viewer out of the fantastic setting.

It only looks new, but it's as old as life and death itself. Calvin Wilson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch gave the film two and a half stars out of five, saying " The Book of Life is a flawed but intriguing new chapter in animation.

In an animated universe cluttered with kung-fu pandas, ice princesses and video-game heroes, Gutierrez and del Toro have conjured up an original vision.

But as an afternoon's diversion for a handful of misbehaving kids—both within the movie, and within the movie theater—it's authentically winning. But there's so much to appreciate along the way that it's a real page-turner.

Gutierrez subsumes the film's darker themes in a relentlessly busy farrago of predictable kids'-movie tropes and annoying attempts at hipness.

Retrieved November 10, After seeing that Manolo's story in the Book of Life is blank and can be rewritten by Manolo's own actions, the Candle Maker takes them to the Land of the Forgotten. Manolo finds La Muerte and exposes the cheating to her.

Furious at Xibalba, La Muerte lectures him before another deal is negotiated; Manolo's life will be returned if he completes a challenge Xibalba sets him, but if he fails, Xibalba will rule both lands and Manolo will be forgotten.

Thinking that Manolo's fear is bulls, Xibalba manifests every bull the Sanchez family ever fought, which merge into a giant one for Manolo to defeat. Chakal kills Carlos, who joins the deceased to watch Manolo fight. Manolo, realizing his fear is actually being himself, again refuses to deliver the finishing blow, instead singing an apology to the resentment-filled spirit asking it to forgive his family's transgressions, which it does by peacefully dissolving away.

Impressed, the deities grant Manolo his life back and send him and his family's spirits to the living world to defeat Chakal. Back in the present as the children leave the museum, Mary Beth and the security guard shown earlier reveal themselves as La Muerte and Xibalba.Geoff Berkshire of Variety gave the film a positive review, saying "Repping a major step forward for Dallas-based Reel FX Animation Studios after their anemic feature bow on last year's Free Birds , the beautifully rendered CG animation brings an unusually warm and heartfelt quality to the high-tech medium and emerges as the film's true calling card.
