I read the book LIfe of Pi and it was one of my favorite books ever. I thought the movie did a good job of staying true to the book. The special effects were amazing..The movie is very well done and very thought-provoking..

This was a beautiful film, well acted and one of my favorite movies of the year. The story centers around Pi, a young man who is lost at sea after the ship he and his family are sinks on the way to Canada. The young man is pushed to his limits trying to survive the ordeal.
Suraj Sharma is charming as Pi and Ang Lee does an amazing job as director. This one will defintely be a blu ray buy for me once its released. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very interesting and touching movie. One of the few that I think should probably be seen in 3D even though I am not a huge fan of 3D movies. The ending is pretty mysterious and I almost wish it were simpler. NOT a movie for little kids though which I wish they made a little clearer in the ads.

I went to this movie curious as to how a computer generated tiger could carry a movie into an Academy Award nomination. Well the movie blew away any notion I had about computer generated effects. It was a thoughtful, suspenseful and beautiful movie. The acting, art direction, set design and technical effects were great. A must see and ok for ages 12 and older I would say. The movie keeps you thinking long after it is over. Easily one of the best movies I've ever seen.

I enjoyed this movie with my husband, and 2 sons ages 13 and 9. The 13 year old was very engaged in the movie as soon as it started. My 9 year old had a harder time with some of the scenes on the boat. The fight for life was a little more than he was prepared for but he enjoyed the movie as a whole as well. I have not read the book but I am going to be looking for it very soon.
I loved his spiritual journey through the book and the ending was awesome!
