This is by far the best movie of the year! It's a must see for all ages. I went with my 21 year old daughter and husband and the three of us were blown away by it. The ads don't do it justice. The message is up lifting...not to mention the photography. It kept your attention the whole 2 hrs of the movie. We walked away feeling uplifted and happy. I'd like to see how they made this movie because it was exceptionally done....BRAVO!!!!!!

It is nothing short of amazing that a movie was made from the book and done so perfectly. If anyone misses this movie, they don't like movies.

The effects were great, and the 3D only amplified them. It was amazing to watch. I loved reading the book, and the movie truly brought the book to life. Everyone needs to take part is this adventure!

This movie as fantastical and beautiful as it was had a deeper more meaningful undertone that truly fueled the film. The directing, acting and music worked in perfect harmony to transport you on a true visual journey especially when in 3D you simply get lost in it. What is truly amazing for the viewer that hasn't read the book and has no idea what to expect other than visually stunning scenes; is a journey that is almost less about survival and more about the human visceral connection between everything in our universe both real and imagined, animal and non-living, logical and spiritual. If you're not left wondering in some way or in awe, you must not have seen the same movie as I did.

Though I never read the novel, I remember it's popularity. With that in mind, I had no idea what to expect. I enjoyed watching this film. Cinematography was incredible, I couldn't tell sometimes what was real, and what was computer generated. Without giving anything away, I really enjoyed a respected story dealing with issues of philosophy, religion (faith) and what your beliefs are, in general. I always enjoy stories of shipwreck and survival, and while, fictional, it provides the issue of what version do you believe.
