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 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!

We saw this one in 3D and it was worth it when the fly fish started hitting me in the face and the tiger's claws ripped my shirt. Both versions of the story are captivating, I hope you can appreciate the ending.

This was a wonderful movie to see with my 12 year old daughter. I loved the message that this movie provides and I will take my 14 year old son to see this movie too. This is a wonderfully directed movie with beautiful cinematography!

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!!
