A breathtaking visual & emotional adventure.

In most recent years, we experience that one hit which embarks us on an unforgettable adventure and will want to continuously revisit. Following in similar footsteps to Avatar and Hugo, the audience are whisked into a magical world that is filled with stunning effects. Visually, you cannot go much higher than what is in Life Of Pi and the film also gifted for the breath-taking experience in 3D and... read more

I wasn't sure about this flick but after hearing so many good things, I seriously wanted to check it out. And I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, it was a really fascinating story, a gorgeous movie to look at and I'm really glad I'm managed to watch in the theater and in 3D. Pretty much like the late Roger Ebert, I really dread this new 3D hype but Ang Lee used it very well and it definitely enhanced t... read more

Brilliantly acted, directed, written and filmed

“I just watched 'Life of Pi' for a second time now, a brilliant film that I first watched about two years ago! The first time, I thought it was very good, the second time, I thought it was great and quite possibly my new favourite film of 2012 (I really liked 'Argo' and might need to re-watch that soon)

'Life of Pi' is brilliantly acted, directed, written and filmed. The script is emotional, touching, intense and at certain times hilarious! Pi is seen at four points in his life and he is played fantastically by Suraj Sharma! Sharma puts emotion and life into his performance when telling the tiger what to do and what not to do and when his family die on the sinking ship and when the tiger leaves him to go to the jungle of an island!

'Life of Pi' also features some brill” read more

"22.03.2015 Tässä oli mm. lihansyöjäsaari ja paljon rumaa CGI:tä. Myös apina lainehti banaanien päällä jne. Kylläpä Ang Lee on saanut taas aikaiseksi elokuvan, joka ei oikeasti ole hyvä."

“Life Of Pi is an epic journey, that takes you on an adventure like no other. A thought provoking movie, with a good story at it's core. It does help that you have a great source martial to work off, and Ang lee did a good job at bringing the novel to screen. Suraj Sharma did a fantastic job at the man of the center of the epic journey, this movie all round is a great movie. I really enjoyed the tale, and was taken on a journey both visually and with thought provoking martial.” read more

" You'll have to forgive me a bit when it comes to this film. I did occasionally almost fell asleep after the film had passed approximately one hour or something. That's possibly not the film's fault as I just saw it after an exhausting day at school, but it may also confirm what my first thought of this film was. That I think it's a little slow. I know this is a film that's supposed to be like that, but I've enjoyed several slow films before, so that's not the problem here. My problem here is th"

Treacly philosophical tripe

“"I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye."

Life of Pi is an adaptation of Yann Martel's 2001 novel of the same name, which is often described as "unfilmable." Yet, director Ang Lee and writer David Magee attempted it nevertheless, and the resultant movie is ultimately a mixed bag. It's certainly easy to appreciate what Lee was trying to achieve here - after all, 3-D is frequently applied to big-budget action extravaganzas, but Life of Pi aims to be an awe-inspiring visual experience that relies on the beauty of nature as opposed to colourful action scenes. While it's an incredible picture to study, it's at times a gruelling sit, with the experience ultimately becoming repetitive and” read more

227 days of Pi's life drifting on the blue desert

“Well, one of most expected movie of 2012 by me. It was not a colorful visual movie like 'Avatar' which was bluish Or 'Hugo' which was orangish except in few scenes that too come in night shot though IMO you should not compare it with above two. Many part of 3D sequences were just awesome, never ever looked better the water in 3D.

It could have been more violent and sentimental story that ever told on this theme but not, the director cleverly blended the humor with character emotions very nicely, that is why it was just rated PG where children are allowed with their parents approval, but it is common for them to see an animal to kill another in Animal Planet, so its not a big deal i think. The CGI animal(s) were looked so clean and good. Of course the Tiger dominants throughout th” read more

Pretty much like the late Roger Ebert, I really dread this new 3D hype but Ang Lee used it very well and it definitely enhanced the whole experience. It is pretty funny to think that 10 years ago, Ang Lee was ridiculed for 'Hulk' (in my opinion, a feature criminally underrated and actually one of the best super-hero flicks ever made) above all for its really ugly CGI sequences. This time around, Lee didn't only manage to master the CGI, he made one of the best use of it I have witnessed. Just mind-blowing. Used properly it ” read more

Any Way The Wind Blows

“I enjoyed Life Of Pi thoroughly from the beginning until just before the end. The movie is undoubtedly beautiful and the story is quite engaging. It's always a good sign when you look at your watch and two hours has flown by like nothing.

The graphics are dazzling, the scope is grand, and the film really captures the myriad emotions that one must experience when lost at sea.

Where this film gets into trouble is its muddled message, which isn't surprising since the message is "spiritual." Ultimately it's asking you to believe that fiction and truth are a legitimate choice, and if you choose fiction because it helps you get through life, then that's ok.

The problem here is a lack of intellectual honesty. Pi says these things, but he also says that it was his fat” read more

“Great camera, visuals and effects, but I felt it was a bit lacking on the other shit. Acting wasn't that good really, and the story kind of felt too simple. "Have faith in god and shit, because that version of life is more "fun" than not having faith at all." A simple and a boring premise.

Maybe I didn't get it. Maybe I need to be more open for faith in general. You know, fuck logic and all that.” read more
