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.

There were setbacks to this movie. "Life of Pi," is visually gorgeous which is an identifiable trait of Ang Lee's style but the story of the film just doesn't measure up to the film's on-screen beauty. What does measure up though is the tense appeal of the drama in the film. This movie thrives off the dramatic tension between Pi and Richard Parker. Whether it is adversarial or sentimental, the two characters just deliver intensity whenever one or both is on the screen. The movie has amazing visual effects and that will appeal very well to the audience. The 3D also augments this visual appeal amazingly. This is a great coming-of-age drama but there are moments when the movie just lags. Screenwriter David Magee does a nice job creating the blueprint for Ang Lee to build the world this fantastical journey takes place but there are moments when there is disconnect and abstract symbolism leaves audiences scratching their heads."Life of Pi" is a good movie. More could have been done with it.

Went expecting the usual animal-human relationship and the least to say, the movie had nothing usual in it. A wonderful story line and an amazing journey. Never felt the full force of 3D magic in any recent movies except this one. A must watch.. Stunning visuals, the unusual story and exemplary acting makes it a movie to remember.. It might be a tad bit violent at a place or two for a small kid who goes expecting to see only happy friendly animals. Just that the movie shows animals as animals. :)

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.
