This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, while I could see where the end may go and did go I still enjoyed the tears I shed and the smiles I shared. The special effects were awesome and the acting is outstanding. You feel as though you are with him on the sea feeling his loneliness and despair. I love the tiger and even though he's a beast you do feel he has a soul. Excellent movie, definitely a purchase when out in the stores. :)

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.

I felt the movie did not dive deep enough into Pi taming the tiger. Desperation and was the heart of the book and I feel it was really glossed over with this adaptation. I think it would have been better if his thoughts were overlaid in a monologue with his actions. I really wanted to feel this movie. It had a lot of promise but felt way to happy disney for the point of the story. I didn't hate the movie it was okay I just really wanted more from it. It had a lot of potential. The cinematography was good but I wanted to connect and love this movie. I left wishing at least the tiger were really so the movie could have more emotion.

We enjoyed the excellent cinematography and unique story. The young Pi captured our hearts and imagination. It was nice to see a thought provoking show without the language or sex that so often prevails. We are both spiritual people and it is always refreshing when faith and religious beliefs are presented as part of the normal human experience without being exploited or ridiculed.
