Probably the best screen adaptation of a novel I have seen in a long time. I was completely sucked in by the story and completely transfixed by the reveal. I was so drawn in by the story that there was a point where I actually thought to myself: "Oh, another weak script!" Only to realize that I had been fooled by the director and the script-- result AWESOME MOVIE!!! So awesome that I am unwilling to reveal any morsel of the plot!!
Have fun watching this movie!!

This movie has a good moral, with an interesting life of the boy, Pi, but there is a lot of voilence with the animals when their stranded in the boat, for a young child to see. Overall this movie is OK, but including the violence seen, I'll say it's a no.

The camera work in this movie is superb. The ocean scenes were magnificent! The script was sort of out there but the photography of the wildlife and ocean scenes was magnificent.

I really enjoy movies that have all animals as well as a life story. I loved how much that Pi went threw and was still able to make it through with a positive attitude. I laughed and cried, but of course I am a huge sap for things that are very emotional. I would recommend this movie to others. As well as buy this movie when it comes out on DVD.

I agree completely with former reviewer, "edithpiaf" & "uberfan". Excellent movie. I LOVE LOVE LOVE animals, especially big cats so, of course, I cried when animals were killed, laughed when animals were in the picture, & cringed! Yes, it WAS a little slow at first, but as previously stated, this is necessary for the storyline/plot. There was beautiful scenery to see while getting the background story! I, too, stayed awake during the night thinking of the different meanings from the film & how one could compare the animals on the boat to the possible actual people! I now want to read the book!
