Visually Stunning, Faithful Adaptation

Beautiful movie. Was worried since the book is so amazing, but Ang Lee pulls it off. I saw it in 2D (my usual preference), but could see how the 3D is probably stunning given the attention to detail in the visuals. Superb acting and special effects. Wife and 10-year old daughter both loved it as well. A must see.

The accents were difficult to understand at times, but if you listen closely you can understand it. The movie was beautiful. A sweet and yet sad story. I would recommend it.

Deeper than the surface

This movie, like the book, can be appreciated at various levels. The photography is breathtaking, to be sure. The story seems magical - and indeed it is. But the real message is hidden beneath many complex layers. It is actually very profound and disturbing. That's why the fantastical imagery - and the story at the surface - is only the surface. When you peer beneath the surface of the water, as Pi sometimes does, there are truths that are deeper, mysterious and so gloomy that human nature rejects them and prefers the fantasy to fact. Because the surface is so beautiful and hard to penetrate, many folks will only see the surface and the movie is bound to be underappreciated.

I took my son to see the movie who is 9 years old. I thought it would be a little slow for him. maybe a little hard for him to understand. But he loved the movie.

Skilled Portrayal of the Book

By kidsnave

We really enjoyed the book and were a little reluctant to see the movie in case it might be cut up, changed or compromised. Silly us - this was the closest movie adaptation of a book I have ever seen. It wraps you in the humor, humanity, fear, hope and anxiety we loved initially.
