Of course it could never be as good as the book or the movie would be 10 hours long instead of 2 but it was excellent. The cinematography was amazing! The 3-D added a lot to the movie. The theater is kinda crummy, old, bad area of town, smelled like urine, but they were the only local theater selling advanced tickets for the first release showing. The up side: @ 4:40 the night before Thanksgiving there were only about 4 other people in the theater besides us. No kids kicking the back of my seat, no texting teens. Now you could probably pick a better theater. You must see this movie!

I loved this movie--I loved the story, the way it's told, and the creativity of the filming and touches of fantasy.
The tiger burns bright and is terribly scary, so don't think it would be right for children under 8--but I encourage everyone else to see it.

Not what I expected from the trailers. Started out a little slow, but once it got going, it was quite good. Special effects in 3D were awesome. Well worth the trip to the theater. The animal attacks may prove troublesome for younger viewers.

I liked the Movie overall. It had a decent and interesting Text, great scenary, nice acting and made me care about the charactors but it develooped slowly and never picked up a pace that I liked. It is definetly worth seeing but don't be in a hurry...

Very visual storytelling because Claudio is a very expressive visual artist. I loved seeing it.
I also loved what some didn't care for, the story ambiguities. It lets your imagination fill in parts and that makes it all the more entertaining.
3D done well. Totally worthy of your time in the theater. See you there!
