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.

Probably the best screen adaptation of a novel I have seen in a long time. I was completely sucked in by the story and completely transfixed by the reveal. I was so drawn in by the story that there was a point where I actually thought to myself: "Oh, another weak script!" Only to realize that I had been fooled by the director and the script-- result AWESOME MOVIE!!! So awesome that I am unwilling to reveal any morsel of the plot!!
Have fun watching this movie!!

I saw this film a few weeks ago, and I am still thinking about it now. Dazzling cinematography. Do spend the money to see it in 3D, as there are a few neat tricks that wouild otherwise be missed. Go see the movie also for the spiritual journey and the spiritual metaphors.

This is great movie !
The story is captivating and the writing is rue to the wonderful novel by Yann Perreau.
The acting is superb, specially the indian actors are remarquable. Some reminescence of Slum Dog Millionaire...
The scenery and the animals are all noticeable, and the special effects do not look like special effects.
BRAVO Ang Lee and Yann Perreau.
EN ROUTE toards Oscar night !

This was a gorgeous movie and did justice to the book--although the book explored Pi's inner life a bit more. Definitely see it in 3D--it's the kind of movie 3D was made for!! The storyline is fantastic and very gripping, but also spiritually deep. Parents, be careful -- this is a movie that young people may find scary. Several parents carted their kids out, most of them looked under 10. I think this is a movie to see with friends so you can talk about it afterward. It's an amazing experience.
