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 movie was great to go see with the whole family. That's really hard to do these days. Sure, parents suffer through kid's movies all the time, but trying taking your college kid, your middle-schooler, and elementary school children all to the same movie! So rare to find! We all loved it. I cried a couple of times. The cinematography was amazing!

Too bad the alternative story didn't get acted out. since they already had the characters hinted earlier in the movie. which was a nice touch, that the book did not have.Since it's frictional, I don't really care about what the message on God was. You could totally make up a different story that God doesn't exist neither, so that's a moot point. It is the imagination, and visualization of the wonder of nature (land animals, sea creatures...etc) that's convincing, because they can really look that amazingly otherworldly. The movie also did a wonderful job in architecture and the ambience, i'd say even better than 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.
