What makes this movie is the special effects, hands down. When any of the animals were in distress, it was impossible to avoid feeling upset (especially the tiger for me). The journey and tale of survival is lovely to watch but I was far more thrilled by the amazingly executed effects rather than the directing. But the prologue getting to it is a strong story. The frame story of the older Pi is done pretty well, and is lucky to have the riveting actor Irrfan Khan. It's quite a sad story in several ways. I found it not a 5-star film overall, but it is worth watching for the scene-stealing CGI tiger.

amazing cinematography!

Spiritual voyage of hope and survival


What a great movie. I thought the effects and scenery were beautiful. I was very much moved by the film and the emotions it brought out in my mind and the thoughts that bubbled around in my mind all night while thinking about this great film. Not quite good enough to make into my top ten movies of all time, but I think it is in my top 25.

life of pi

i wish i'd been able to see life of pi on the big screen...

animal lovers beware

i am a very intense animal lover, and the scenes where they harmed or killed each other, or where the animals had to endure harsh suffering, were just too much for me. if it had not been for that, i may have enjoyed the movie, but as it was, it was not an enjoyable movie for me because of the animals.


The Oscar winner "Ang Lee," delivers a stunning masterpiece in this film "Life of Pi." It tells the incredible story of Pi, a teen who looses his entire family when calamity strikes, and finds himself as the only human survivor with a full-grown fierce Bengal tiger for company on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. What follows is an epic journey of adventure and self-discovery.


itis a very good movie


It was adventurous, and I was scared for most of it, but it got sad and happy at the end.

So Beautiful!

I loved this movie! It was so beautiful to watch. I absolutely loved the book, so I was a little nervous to see what they would do with the story. They added in a few things and took out some of the science which I was a little sad about, but overall I think they did a fantastic job of sticking with the original story and all the plot points that were important. Much more than a lot of movies do when adapting from a book. I liked that they picked a relatively unknown actor (at least in America) to play Pi (Suraj Sharma) because it sort of kept with the humble message of the story. I'm amazed he wasn't more recognized in the award season because he pretty much carried that entire movie, there was a lot of intensity, and he carried it off flawlessly.


decent movie, pretty close to the book although there were discrepancies.
