Stunning is the best way to describe the art direction of Life of Pi. Wonderfully creative and ridiculously beautiful, Life of Pi is a must see movie. Ang Lee is a master of storytelling and capturing the imagination.
There is an amazing amount of detail. Ang Lee excels in encapsulating reality into the movements of the animals, the affects of the saltwater and sun on Pi's skin, and the mental anguish of someone trapped at sea for over 200 days. This film has the best use of CGI I've ever seen.
For those with children, there are definitely scary and sad moments.
I have not read the book, but after seeing this movie I definitely will.

I absolutely love this book and was really excited to see the movie. That said, if you dont know the story this movie may come across as a bit of a downer. Parents, dont bring your young children to this movie. While it looks cute to see a tiger on a boat, its not a nice tiger. You may end up dragging your children out of the movie theatre because the movie got a little too real or b. your children cant keep up with the story so they lose focus and start running around the movie theatre (yes this happened). Watch the movie in 3-D--its awesome and you wont regret it.

The 3-D visuals were the best part of this movie. The movie started out slow and picked up further into it. Overall, it was a good movie, not awesome but good.

Could become an all time favorite. This movie is a visually stunning, beautifully told story that people of all ages can enjoy. Simply the best movie experience I've had in quite a while.

Incredible movie! How fresh it was to see a movie like this with no cursing, sexual innuendoes, and extreme violence. All parents, and schools make this required watching.
