Beautifully done. A little slow in parts, but probably unavoidable, as they are lost at sea. The actor who played Pi was extremely good. Loved the tiger and the animals, the night plankton; cinematography and special effects do not disappoint.

The visual effects are entertaining and the plot starts well. The theme is presented as having spiritual significance but is void of any real meaning. The main character showed an inability to discern truth from error regarding faith and religious practice. As with most hollywood movies some elements of the plot are realistic and some are not. The movie asks the viewer to accept the unrealistic as easily as the realistic. This viewer did not. I found myself hoping for more in terms of human virtue to uplift the spirit. This movie is like a Hindu version of Gulliver's travels but much less interesting.

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. :)

Loved the movie, the sentimental, the spiritual, the scenery, the CAT, the actor. A beautiful story. I will definitely buy a copy when it's out on video
