Having not read the book previously I had no idea about the story except what I had seen on the trailers at the theater. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie but was concerned about the younger members of the audience sitting around me. They were squirming and not involved. I would not suggest it to anyone with children under 10. Some of the scenes are too graphic for that age group and some of the movie is not intriguing enough for that younger children. It is a very long movie, especially if you watch the credits all the way through. Wow, that was a great deal of people who worked on the movie.

Yes, there are a lot of messages in this film.....if you can pick up on that type of thing. 'Richard Parker', the computer generated tiger is definitely 'alive' in the film. The other graphics are well done.
The story drags and I kept wondering how much longer would the film continue. Glad when it ended. Not sure if kids under 12 (?) would enjoy it.

The movie was both visually stunning and had a fresh plot. I truly enjoyed this movie. I saw this in the RPX format, but had problems with the theater itself. The screen was very slightly out of focus and the "wonderful 7 million watt" sound system was silent on the left side of the theater.
But the movie itself is a must see.

Went expecting the usual animal-human relationship and the least to say, the movie had nothing usual in it. A wonderful story line and an amazing journey. Never felt the full force of 3D magic in any recent movies except this one.
A must watch.. Stunning visuals, the unusual story and exemplary acting makes it a movie to remember..
It might be a tad bit violent at a place or two for a small kid who goes expecting to see only happy friendly animals. Just that the movie shows animals as animals. :)

this is a movie not to be missed. The effects are breath taking, but more important, the story comes to life, especially in 3D.The actors, animals, storms all make for an exciting film.
