This was magical. I have read the book, never would I have thought the movie could not only capture, but so totally enhance it, as to be magical. Brilliant work by Ang Lee...

If you have only one movie to see this holiday season, make it this one. Ang Lee's genius directorial skills combine with superb acting, lush cinematography, and awesome special effects to make for a not-to-be-missed entertainment experience.

Somewhat of a disappointment

The commercials for this movie looked great. And then we went to see it. It was okay, nothing to rave about. There were many slow parts and the end just wasn't really satisfying. Yes, it is a far-fetched situation, some of it not impossible, but it didn't leave us cheering. We mpst likely would not purchase this movie when it's released on DVD. The 3-D was not exceptional. There were a few moments that I noticed it, but otherwise, the additional cost to see it in 3-D was not worth it. This may have been a better choice to borrow from the library several months from now.

If you liked Crouching Tiger, get ready to be overwhelmed! This is a touching, brilliant, and visually mesmerizing film. Superb acting and you never know when CGI is being used. Great moral too about humanity and faith and survival. One of the rare movies I would see again and again.

The Life of PI captured my imagination from the beginning. The cinematography is stunningly beautiful and the acting is so well done that you're not watching a movie but living Pi's story. And what a story - lovely and full of meaning on many levels! One of the few movies I've ever seen that has made me want to read the book.
