What a fantastic movie. Very good representation of the book with the same title. Excellent acting and special effects. It kept our attention throughout the film even thou it was 2 hours long. We may just go back to watch it a second time...

First off, anyone planning on seeing this, I want you to know up front that this is a very religious movie, speaking/preaching religion throughout most of this movie ... and I dont have anything against religion, but it wasnt my intention to spend money on religious preachings. The story itself was a really good story about a boy stranded in the ocean on a life boat with a tiger, after the ship he is on sinks. The acting was above par, but nothing noteworthy really. I seen this in 3D, and the filming was really good in 3D, and the visuals throughout were amazing, but at the same time, some of the more colorful visuals, as good as they were, felt out of place in this movie to me, almost like throwing Tinkerbell fantasy magic into the mix of a more believable story .. it just didnt go for me in that respect. Because of the religious preachings, and its awkward direction for this movie to go in, I'd give this 2 out of 4 stars myself, enjoy :)
BTW This isnt really a kids movie either

This is an amazing story of a boy in his search to find God and his incredible will to survive. This film is so well done you don't just see it, you feel it - almost become one with it. We laughed, we cried - the acting and cinematography was so well done, you fell very emotion of Pi just looking in his eyes. Every emotion he had on his journey you feel right along with him. It is a must see for everyone; believer or not there are several powerful messages.

I will never think of animals or creatures of the sea in the same way since seeing this amazing, mesmerizing film. Slow to start, this intense film builds to an incredible finish of mythic proportions. This is not just a story about human endurance, but an exploration of the nature of God and the individual's place in the universe.
