Beautifully true to the book. A visual masterpiece. This is a truly thought provoking story where each viewer will come away with their own interpretation. If you loved the book, you won't be disappointed!

Though you know the outcome of the story, this movie does a great job unfolding the stories with stunning visuals. Some interesting twists at the end. The three D is well done, adding to the story not just there to show off the technology.

It is amazing story, full color, epic, and especially with 3-D is good. My son really likes it and I love it, none of us get bored but an eyes opener for us! None of us dare to take a break!

Movies need to tell a great story with great visual appeal. Life of PI is that movie. It pulls your heart and mind in from the get go and doesn't let you go. It's full of sad and wonderful surprises along the way, just like life, and leaves you thinking about the true nature of God.....as profound a theme as there is. The acting is terrific and the special effects are out of this world! If you believe a movie is to be enjoyed and at the same time, leave you with some important themes to think about, or if you just enjoy a really great story extremely well told, then this movie is for you.(: It made me grateful for my belief that all religions equally provide a path to understanding the true nature of God. And God is present in all we experience....good and bad.

I read the book months ago and loved it but imagined it to be cinematically impossible. Ang Lee
brought it to life beyond my own visualizations, incorporating the despair, the resourcefulness,
the magic, my love and repect for the directness of the animal world, the unpredictability of the spirit,value and the creation of a good story, and the layers of the spiritual journey. I see it as a masterpiece, written by a master and filmed by one. Magnificent!!!
