A powerful story, narrated in first person, as Pi reveals his amazing adventure to the story writer in a way that leaves one wondering at the end if this was a halucinatory fantasy or pure reality. This was a beautiful film that was well scripted, offering the viewer an amazing mental,visual, and spiritual experience that satisfies the soul at many levels... Go!

I was disappointed in the overall content of the film. The first half (give or take) is so slow and boring that it's hard to keep watching. After the storm and the second half of the film starts, it's wonderful. If you have seen the trailers, you've seen the best there is to the film. I was so jazzed to see this one; but it did not live up to all the hype. Unless the 3-D version is sharper and clearer, the two D version seems to be fading in color and lacks that brilliant colorization that I saw in the trailers. I gave it a GO only because of the second half of the film. I should have given it a so/so; but I think it deserves to be seen.

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!

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!
