Live Action Films with the Best CGI Effects

List Criteria: Movies must be mainly live action with elements of CGI.

Live action films with the best CGI effects include some of the most popular movies of all-time. Think Jurassic Park, the Transformers series, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. These movies all combine fantastic live action with eye-poppingly great CGI effects, creating memorable characters, and amazingly detailed scenes to keep you on the edge of your seat. This list includes some of the most notable live action movies with the best CGI effects. Don't agree? Vote a movie down. And, if you have a favorite live action movie that you think uses outstanding CGI effects, by all means, add it to the list.

Some of the best live action films with manage to be compelling and real without overdoing things. In some of the greatest films that combine live action and CGI, the scenes using computer generated images are so subtle, you can't even tell. A really well done CGI/live-action movie combines incredible technical wizardry and realistic-looking details to enhance a movie, not overpower it. Michael Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and David Fincher's Fight Club are great examples of this. Sometimes, less really is more when it comes to CGI.

What films do you think combined live action with the best CGI effects? Time to vote!
