I got to read the book in my English class and it was an amazing story. I'm so grateful to be able to see it "alive" Even though the whole movie didn't have all the important details in the book, it has created a real life experience and brought something the audience have never seen before. The visual was fanstatic but it is not the only thing that makes the movie special. The depth that Ang Lee put in the movie and Suraj Sharma's acting were a great combination. I cried at some scenes and I really really enjoyed this amazing journey that Ang Lee has given us.

I have not seen it yet but I have it on my holiday list. I have read several positive reviews and I know it will get some Oscar noms.

I saw the film last week. I loved the spectacular visuals. A CBS Sunday Morning review prompted me to check it out.

I haven't seen it, but I would love to. Since it is an Ang Lee, then it has to be very good.

I saw Life Of Pi in 3D and the most amazing aspects of the film were the visual effects. You'll believe that Richard Parker is in the boat with Pi.

I saw it, after reading the book in my English class this year. I thought it really lived up to the high expectations, and was an incredible film based on an "unfilmable book." The graphics were incredible, and the acting was very realistic.

As a fan of the book, I really enjoyed the movie despite some necessary changes needed to translate it to the big screen.
