Life of Pi in 3D is an amazing experience.
The story is engrossing, based on the novel of the same name, but the computer graphics is done so well, you think the protagonist is actually sharing a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.
I strongly recommend seeing this movie, if, for no other reason, for the visual experience.
In addition, seeing the world from the point of view of an engaging Indian teenager is worth it in its own right.
I thought at first that the religious themes would turn me off, but the religion is an integral part of Pi's character, and it is interesting to see the world through his eyes, even if I don't see it that way myself.

I liked the Movie overall. It had a decent and interesting Text, great scenary, nice acting and made me care about the charactors but it develooped slowly and never picked up a pace that I liked. It is definetly worth seeing but don't be in a hurry...

I have been a fan of the book for years. The movie does not disappoint. I saw it in IMAX 3D and was enchanted nd amazed!

Of course it could never be as good as the book or the movie would be 10 hours long instead of 2 but it was excellent. The cinematography was amazing! The 3-D added a lot to the movie. The theater is kinda crummy, old, bad area of town, smelled like urine, but they were the only local theater selling advanced tickets for the first release showing. The up side: @ 4:40 the night before Thanksgiving there were only about 4 other people in the theater besides us. No kids kicking the back of my seat, no texting teens. Now you could probably pick a better theater. You must see this movie!

It was alright. Another classic cast away movie. A lot of obvious ocean "set" scenes, where the ocean water is completely still. The story was another of the same. Wait for this to come out on DVD.
