"An animal and survival story combined."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I didn't see this movie when it first came I should of, it's such an amazing movie. I don't want to give too much away but a young Indian man tring to survive on the ocean in a lifeboat with a hungry tiger for company is the ultimate challenge! The special effects are so amazing you are convinced that the tiger and everything else is real. No wonder it won awards for special effects. This movie will blow your mind!

"A feast for the eyes."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I had wanted to see the film when it was first released but circumstances (and location!) were against me. I was given the book and found that to be a really good and different read. I can see that on the big screen this film would be totally amazing but wasn't at all disappointed watching it on small screen. The story was really well transposed and the cinamatography fabulous. Loved it, will watch it again.

"An interesting watch"

Love the CGI – very well done. Story line wasn't quite as believeable as it possibly could be, but still very enjoyable

Description

Based on the bestselling book, LIFE OF PI tells the story of a young mans incredible survival at sea against almost impossible odds. A stunning visual spectacle and remarkable technological breakthrough in 3D, PI is an emotionally captivating experience that will inspire, touch and transport audiences to a place of discovery that they will never forget. Winner of 4 Academy Awards.

See the Life of Pi book by Yann Martel, winner of 2002's Booker Pri­ze.

Reviews

“To produce a coherent film from Martel’s tricky novel would be achievement enough, but Ang Lee has extracted something beautiful, wise and, at times, miraculous.” 5/5 Empire

“Pi is a giant leap forward, outward and upward in expanding the resources of the evolving medium of movies. Magical realism was rarely so magical and never before so real.” 5/5 Time

“Is it real? Is this whole story real? I refuse to ask that question. Life of Pi is all real, second by second and minute by minute, and what it finally amounts to is left for every viewer to decide. I have decided it is one of the best films of the year.” 5/5 Roger Ebert

“A riot of saturated colour and delirious imagination, Ang Lee's adap radiates spirituality. But it's also a simple, thrilling and gently uplifting tale of a boy, a boat and a tiger. Take the plunge.” 5/5 Total Film

“Lee uses 3D with the delicacy and lyricism of a poet. You don't just watch this movie, you live it.” 3.5/4 Rolling Stone

“Mr. Lee's film is stronger as a visual experience – especially in 3-D – than an emotional one, but it has a final plot twist that may also change what you thought you knew about the ancient art of storytelling.” 4/5 Wall Street Journal

“There are always moral crosscurrents in Lee's most provocative work, but so magical and mystical is this parable, it's as if the filmmaker has found the philosopher's sto­ne.” 5/5 LA Times
