I loved this movie. It just draws you in, makes you think. It made me cry three times and laugh. I also took my 12 yr old son and 17 yr old daughter, they also soved it. So good!

I loved this flick. Even after reading other reviews saying that it isn't for young children, I brought my 6year old daughter. She was bored and got lost in the symbolism and stories wthin a story layout, but i think the visual effects sprinkled throughout helped keep her attention on the movie. I, on the otherhand, enjoyed every minute of it. Definately worth watching - but may want to leave the kids at home for this one. :-)

Life of Pi is a wonderful film that is a visual feast, a captivatingly profound adventure, full of wonder, awe, deep-felt emotion, great acting and the most incredible story of a tiger I have ever seen. It is stunning, captivating, philosophical and religious in its own inimitable and beneficent way. There is something for everyone in this film. I has true universal appeal. It will make you experence a myriad of emotions and one that is very difficult to express in a film without being overly sentimental or ponderous. This is simply the best experience of the mystery and mystical nature of life ever expressed ecumencially on film. You will leave it thinking at a deep level and most especially grateful for the gift of your life! Excellent actors are directed with exactly the right genuine "pitch" of emotion and faith without being overly sentimentalized or over-wrought. I cannot imagine a person not being moved or inspired or made to think in some profound way by this film.

the movie wasn't as great imo as people are saying it to be. yes it is a definite spiritual story...it touches many aspects of spirituality struggling suffering and strife, the elements of growth, asking a higher power or God for help, and turmoils and God's help during these situations. However, the character and presonality development of Pi was still that of some kind of half witted semi ignorant careless type idiot who intelligently does go through his ordeals with thought and matter but not with a lot of heart or soul. his decision to save the tiger seemed mostly a selfish one that would save himself, while he let the other animals die, though he didnt have much of a choice. the cinematography and scenery is pretty but not enough to make a great movie or story. most of the movie is pi stuck on the lifeboat with the tiger and his struggle to survive. its inspirational but also mediocre- still worth going to but wouldnt be able to sit through it twice.

Ok, I am a movie buff and love science fiction, great animation, a good story line,etc. However, this movie was such a bore. I got up and walked out before the end of the movie. I saw another lady leave in the first 40 minutes. Had they began the interview with PI then stuck to the movie and came back to the interview with Pi at the very end it would have been OK. But they kept cutting back and forth from the interview the Pi to the story. BLAH!
