well done! a very good adaptation of a great novel.
One of the best movies I've ever seen. Read the book years ago, not only I wasn't disappointed, I don't think the movie could have been done better.
such an amazing movie. an amazing story
Nothing short of mesmerizing. This is a gorgeous movie and the story is unforgettable like I've rarely seen before. The 3D is epic and comparable to Avatar's 3D. You'll want to show this film to everyone you know.
I saw this movie on Shaw Demand the other day and it was a good one!!
Too much time spend in the ocean. Got pretty tedious
A visually wonderful movie with substance ... great acting of young Pi and the rest of the cast. Go watch it in 3D!
this movie was the best movie i have ever seen
If I could I'd give this movie 3.14 stars.
Unexpectedly good! Excellent story and beautiful! Highly recommended!
It was not my cup of tea found it very slow seemed to drag on and on but to each their own.
Nice full of adventure
Amazingly true to the book. An emotional tale that will keep you thinking long after you leave the theater.
As a huge fan of the book, I was very happy that they stayed true to the book. Beautiful cinematography.
Very good movie, one of my best all time.
It was a great movie.
Excellent film!!! Great story telling that is enhanced by the use of 3D - Ang Lee is truly a master of spinning a great tale!
best movie I have seen this year.
animation was nice..some scenes were really funny...this movie does question your belief...
I LOVE RICHARD PARKER!!!!!! Great movie! Must see in theaters :)
Excellent movie. I liked it better than the book -- and that's unusual for me.
This artistic thoughtful film has good acting, a compelling narrative, and it's bedazzling in 3D. I would have given it a five star rating. This film exists in 2D as well, but the 3D format adds a lot to the stunning visual experience.
it's so touching and sad!!!!!!!!!!!
loved this movie... previews looked good.. was a bit nervous at the same time...was such a beautiful story.. don't go expecting and adventure, this was a building drama.. really liked it..had some funny moments. never found that there was an excess of animal cruelty..the people that walk out missed a good movie..
never heard of/read the novel fiction. but LOP is an interesting story of someones personal religious beliefs (even if i disagree with) told in survival-adventure story form, with vivid visuals. i have no problem about animal losses/animal-eat-animals, as death is a natural reality. the trailer was sufficient not to raise expectations (how interesting can a sole survivor and tiger be? 'not'), and i wasn't disappointed; if anything, pleased by things not revealed till i saw the movie. (i didn't read the synopsis till after seeing the show). some funny parts. enjoyed it.
Not worth the ticket price. Only good parts: narrator, 3D effects and scenery shots. Otherwise you will be wanting to fastforward to the end.
I loved the movie but was a little upset over the loss of the animals. I KNOW ACCIDENTS HAPPEN BUT I'M SUCH AN ANIMAL NUT and couldn't stop crying.
What's with all the animal cruelty?
So boring. Soooooooo boring.
What started out as a very lovely movie, took a terrible turn during the ship wreck. A zebra was literally thrown into a boat and we had to watch him suffer and then get eaten by a hyena The tiger was trapped and coerced throughout and he was terrified. Not for any animal lover or children. The director has a streak of cruelty in him. We walked out. Laurie Burck
Great movie, 3D was well done and in support of the story for once. If you're going to see it 3D is a must. This is coming from a person who thinks most "3D" movies are a scam/rip off. Great movie 5 out of 5 !!!
Powerful, audacious, and beautifully scripted story. In my humble opinion, "To LOVE GOD, is to recognize the RICHARD PARKER in us all,... ...must must see film experience.
This movie was good go see this movie .
Excellent movie, completely loved it but not a good movie for children or even preteens. Especially for children sensitive to animals. Graphic story of survival. Wonderfully done.
a visual poetry
Best movie this year!! And possibly top 3 life time!!!
For people crying spoiler alert, the book description IS the synopsis. I HOPE its a good movie; because the book was great!
i read the book and it was really well written.... i hope this movie does it justice!
read this book in high school - can't wait to see the movie, should be unique and interesting.
