A moving story, Life of Pi blends fantasy and reality with great sensitivity and creativity. The acting by Irfan Khan and Suraj Sharma is touching and real. Ang Lee shows how large the scope of his creativity and sensitivity is. The use of 3D enhances the emotional impact, so this movie should be enxperienced in 3D.
This is a great family movie.

this is a movie not to be missed. The effects are breath taking, but more important, the story comes to life, especially in 3D.The actors, animals, storms all make for an exciting film.

Cinematrographically gorgeous, philosophically and theologically provocative, this movie will keep the thoughtful person engaged, on several levels, long after he/she has left the theater. Aside from being an enjoyable experience, the movie raises questions about the ultimate value of a thoroughly rational approach to dealing with life's vicissitudes (hence, I think, the titular reference to the mathematical constant, pi). Definitely two hours and five minutes well spent.

I loved it! Absolutely exhilarating cinematography and effects. My husband usually shies away from special effects movies, but now he sees the light and is looking forward to seeing other movies in animation and special effects. I never would have believed it! Two five star votes from mature adults.

This is the kind of a story that probably wouldn't have been able to be effectively made into a movie 10 years ago...but these days, anything is possible...
Fascinating story, and a visually stunning job of telling it.
The tiger deserves an award.
