If you haven’t seen this movie yet, then I would highly recommend you see it in theaters in 3D before it comes out on DVD or Blu-ray because I only have good things to say about it.
When you see the previews of “Life of Pi”, you can see the incredible imagery that the 3D movie industry was able to create.
The cinematography was flawless compared to other 3D films because “Life of Pi” was actually shot with new and better 3D camera technology.
The film, originally a book, was written by David Magee and Yann Martel, but you don’t have to read it in order to understand or enjoy the movie.
The main character, Pi, shares with the author of the book, his incredible story of being stranded at sea and his surprisingly meaningful relationship with a Bengal tiger.
This tiger-human relationship was very interesting and eventually expresses a deeper meaning at the end.
I especially loved the ending because Pi tells two stories which made me wonder which story was true, sort of like the movie “Inception.”
So for these reasons, I thoroughly enjoyed the film for its beautiful storyline that nearly made me cry, and for its epic movie scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat.
But if you don’t want to take my word for it, just see for yourself on the rotten tomatoes movie review Web site, which posted “Life of Pi’s” average rating of 7.8 out of 10 and Box Office revenue of $30.6M.
