A young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship's only other survivor -- a fearsome Bengal tiger.
Adventure Drama - While there are some very intense moments and some scary moments with
wild animals--namely a tiger--on the whole this adventure drama based
on the popular novel is safe viewing for families with older
children. There are no name stars here, just the appeal of the
popular novel it's based on and the stunning visuals.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good The good in Life of Pi easily outweighs the bad but it could be claimed that the production is more remarkable because of superlative special effects...
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent 'Life of Pi' is a miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good As mighty waves crash, and even when the sea is nearly becalmed, Life of Pi is a spectacular high-seas epic that employs technology brilliantly and underscores the power of a vividly told story.
Washington PostFull Review Good 'Life of Pi' arrives just in time to breathe life and possibility into an otherwise moribund marketing gimmick.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 55 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:About two-thirds of the kids loved "PI." A fairly small percentage did rate it somewhat low. It is a little slow in places so it's most likely to be enjoyed by older kids.
TEENS:The few teens all enjoyed "PI" very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The two males rated it above average. One female loved it and one rated it above average.
ADULTS:All but a few of the females either loved "PI" or, at least, enjoyed it very much. The male reviews are similar but a higher percentage of them only rated it as a "Good/Average" movie, which is a bit disappointing, but certainly not bad.
