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!

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!

You'll either love this movie or you will be lost. The story inspires deep intellectual thought. It is the first movie I can say you must see in 3D. It will surely win an award for special effects.

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.

A moving story, Life of Pi blends fantasy and reality with great sensitivity and creativity. The acting by Irfan Khan and Suraj Sharma is touching and real. Ang Lee shows how large the scope of his creativity and sensitivity is. The use of 3D enhances the emotional impact, so this movie should be enxperienced in 3D.
This is a great family movie.
