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.

This was a truly magical tale, beautifully shot by Ang Lee, who uses 3D in a way that does not detract from the film, but enhances it and makes you feel as if you are in the film. The story is touching, heartbreaking, funny, and brutal. I definitely recommend it.

Fresh, enthralling with more than just a hind of eastern mystersism this film is everything you thought it might be and then some. Visually it is a cornucopia of illusion and fantasy. Escapism at it's ultimate while displaying the indomitable complexities and contradictions contained in the human spirit. It is rare these days to find a film so far removed from the grinding formulated mediocrity typically turned out by tinsel-town these days.

Awesome 3D. Has a very Indie feel, not for everyone. Good story line, great acting by the main character. Revelation at the end, you won't see it coming. I liked it. A pleasant departure from current action movies, shows a lot of depth.

I loved this book after I was intrigued by how a “boy and tiger on a boat” story could be made realistic and interesting. I was even more intrigued into how the book could be made into a film, and then nominated for so many Oscars, so I had to see it.
It was very good, bordering on great. The acting of Pi on the boat was superb. The cinematography was spectacular. A heart-wrenching story of loss, fear, courage, hope, creativity, despair, faith, and disappointment.
I’m not sure how it would play for someone who had not read the book …
