The book was miles better. Unfortunately it lacked the same emotional oomph.

The thing that is really important when you watch this movie is to keep an open mind. It is really different from anything I had ever seen before. It's also not very interesting to start with, but, as with a lot of movies, it's worthwhile to stick around. In the end, I found it very enjoyable and visually beautiful.

The best movie, and faith.

Wow what an amazing, best, Christian, drama, faith, action, story, and family move. I love Life of Pi and I saw it in theaters twice. I really think its defiently one of the best movies ever made. I love it how Richard Parker the tiger doesn't kill Pi in the movie. I love it also that it's Christian and faith movie. If Life of Pi would have won the movie of the year that woul have been excellent. Ang Lee the director of Life of Pi did an excellent, and perfect job directing the movie. The second time I saw Life of Pi my friend went with me to saw it. She also really liked it. I loved it the most. Before the movie was out on DVD I kept on talking about how good and amazing it was. I would recommend anybody to see Life of Pi, and to me it wasn't a slow movie. I though the actors did a grea...

Life of Pi

A beautiful film! Fueled by some amazing and dazzling visual effects, Life of Pi is a fantastical story of survival, but there's so much more to it. On the surface it's a survival story, but it's also a poignant tale about finding oneself. As the film draws to its close, you think you have a grasp on the message, but then the ending concludes and you realize there's a little bit more to think about. Ang Lee really did a great job here; he takes you on this marvelous journey (in 3D), but subtly and effectively leaves the ending just open enough for interpretation. Suraj is really good as Pi, especially considering this is his film debut; Irfan Khan and Rafe Spall are also effective in their supporting roles. There are some "okay" moments here and there in terms of cgi, but overall the effe...

Life of Pi review

What a beautiful film. I just can't say enough about the visual aspect of this film. I have no reference point, I have not read the book, which is probably a good thing. The story is interesting. A boy shipwrecked and living on a lifeboat with a tiger. I'm not sure I got all of the references to God, or Krishna, or whatever other religion Pi was practicing at the time. In fact, I'm not sure that this isn't a film about the lack of a "God." It's about the perseverance of a boy and the will to fight to stay alive. God didn't teach him how to read or fish or NOT drink the salt water, those are all lessons learned throughout his life.

Again, I haven't read the book, so I'm a little skeptical about the framing of the film, I'm not a big fan of the, "I'm writing a book, filming a docu...
