I was so excited for this movie but sorry to say it was not worth it, and definitely not worth watching in 3D. If all the unnecessary filler was cut, it would be 30 minutes, not 2 hours. In no way was this movie 'the next Avatar'. I was expecting a visual feast. The CGI in the clips edited for the trailers were absolutely beautiful. I was expecting to see many more breathtaking moments but I did not. The trailers showed all the scenes that were worth watching, and besides those few minutes, it was a big fat bore. There was way too much narration, it was way too slow, and the ending never ended but, at the same time seemed like an afterthought. They should have ended with the tiger walking into the jungle, or integrated the ending human story into the animal story. For example, utilizing flashback scenes when Pi explains what happened with his mother and the cook, would have made it flow with the style of rest of the film. Underwhelmed.

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.

Couldn't hold back the tears on the sad parts, but then there was a great uplift throughout the
story bringing as many smiles as there were tears. Loved it!! Will certainly buy to add to my
collection of classics.

What a cool movie! Not quite 3D mandatory, but the CGI was absolutely marvelous. The plot caught me off guard, adding to the circumference of the story (and the fun of watching it on the big screen).
