Go see it. Leave younger kids home.

I went with my teenage son and his girl friend to see this movie. I had not read the book, but after watching the movie, I think I'll buy the book! It began slowly, and I worried that the teens would think it was boring. I had read other reviews that mentioned the film is "very religious". I didn't find that to be true. Although the lead characters had tried many different faiths in his lifetime. But it wasn't shoved down my throat in the movie. I was surprised at the ending. It really sticks with you. Makes you think. When it was over, I looked at the kids and asked "well,what did you think?" The gf loved it! My son, wants to buy it on DVD when it comes out. I really didn't expect them to understand it, but in talking in the car on the way home, they really did get it! But, I will say, my son is a deep thinker. A, not-the-norm kinda kid. He's an artist, so the cinematography appealed to him. The scenes were so beautiful at some moments. GO see it. Bring your intelligent teens.

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.

Life of Pi = Great Visual Effects

Whether you read the book or not, this is a great movie. It is thought provoking but in the end a movie of survival. It is a conversation starter. We saw it in 3D. I think it would be good in either, but fun to see the Tiger jump out at you! The only reason I didn't rate as MUST SEE is because I think this is a movie that many will love, most will like, and some will hate. I loved it.

for visual effects only.

Some failed attempt to connect to you spiritually at a time when religion is losing its significance. Nevertheless, the movie makes up for it in visual effects.

Never read the book. Will definitely be doing so soon. Took my daughter and friend to see this yesterday. Wasn't sure what to expect - but we were blown away by the touching story and the visual effects. A must-see for the entire family. It was honestly phenomenal! If someone says "don't go" - don't listen. We LOVED it. You'll love it. Go see it. You won't regret it!
