From Amazon.co.uk

Considering that it's based on such an apparently unfilmable book, the superb movie of Life of Pi is a genuinely staggering achievement. At heart telling the story of its central character, Pi, the film juggles an assortment of themes in an accessible, compelling manner, with a mix of drama, humour and relatable emotions. No wonder it won an Oscar for its director, Ang Lee.

Lee, as it turns out, is a perfect choice for the material. He conjures up some quite wonderful imagery, to the point where there are moments you simply wish you could freeze the screen, print it off, and place the picture on your wall. He then blends in seamless effects work, not least a tiger who proves pivotal to Pi's journey, and most impressively of all, he turns it into a fabulous film, with genuinely broad appeal.

It's also a film that's that rarest of things: one that makes the most out of 3D. Even cynics towards the 3D format would have to concede that Lee has done exceptional work with Life Of Pi, and the 3D Blu-ray is arguably the best way to enjoy the film outside of a cinema. The scenes on the ocean, for instance, are astounding.

The disc is rounded off with some interesting behind the scenes material, although you do get a sense that there's a lot more of the story to tell. Still, Life of Pi is an incredible movie, and one that deserves to be enjoyed and appreciated time and time again. --Jon Foster

The Life of Pi was well worth the wait. I've watched it twice now, and is one of those films you will never tire of. Ang Lee has brought us many great films, but this must be one of his best works ever. It is not only visually stunning, but also will leave you wondering. Was it all an allegory?

A magical piece of storytelling with wonderful scenery and camera work that deserves being seen on Blu-ray. You know that there must have been some technological manufacturing of the tiger and other creatures at times, but it was so ingeniously done that you are allowed to just believe it was real and you really feel you are in the boat with Pi. We watched it as a family (10 to 65 years) and it was enjoyed by all, on different levels. The last 15 minutes contained a clever twist that turned a story into something more haunting and mysterious and left us discussing it at length, with each of us drawing different conclusions. Though we only saw it 3 weeks ago we are going to watch it again tonight.

Format: DVD
Having seen the movie first in 3D, I was completely blown away by pretty much every aspect; the story itself, the format it was portrayed on screen, the effects and most of all, the fact that it is unlike any other film out at the moment. I started the book a week or so after and liked how certain things were changed for the movie (the romance) but how they managed to still maintain the raw overall story from the book and how not everything was lost on it's way from the book to the screen. Most people would say when it comes to any movie that you should read the book first. However for me with this particular story I'm glad I saw the movie first because having knowing what the ending was I was able to analyze in detail as I was reading by using the ending as a reference point, otherwise I probably would have had to read it all again to get a clearer understanding.
I would highly recommend this book and DVD to anyone who is looking for something groundbreakingly different.

And by the way, after I finished the book I went to see it again in the cinema ;D

Format: DVD
Towards the beginning of Ang Lee's adaptation of Yan Martell Life of Pi, Pi of the title, is talking to a Writer and interestingly says something like "I will tell you my story, how much you believe is true is up to you". This is your first clue as to the book and films intention. If you believe in something that doesn't mean it's true, and if something is true you may choose not to believe in it. Truth and belief are at best strange bedfellows and at worst mortal enemies.

We are then presented with the film in a series of flashback as Pi tells the story and the writer listens. This truly fantastical tale of shipwrecks and a man eating Tiger is told with stylised and genuinely stunning imagery, literally dripping with an over saturated vivid colour palette. This is the second clue. Are we watching a dream or someone's version of another truth? The question in my head is this, whose version of this tale are we seeing, the listener or the teller. Is the teller remembering the real truth or what he believes is the truth? Is the listener embellishing for his own ends? Are truth and belief being mixed up or is that how it always is?

Life of Pi is just stunning, even the simple opening credit sequence is a joy and full of sly humour. The flashback dissolves are inventive and connect the now with the then beautifully. The Computer Generated Imagery is almost too good; it really is very difficult to work out what is real and what is not. Apparently only a very few shots of Richard Parker (the Tiger) are real, the rest is CGI. The script is beautifully written and the screenplay is well balanced. The acting is first class without exception and the direction is never less than interesting.

Outstanding cinematography and genuinely ground-breaking CGI place this film in a category of its own. It's extraordinarily slow to start with, and the development of the plot is languid, to say the least. It starts by examining the early years of Pi, and it's here we learn how he acquires his name. This is narrated in flashback by his adult self and is carefully paced, with exquisite detail - one of Lee's trademarks.

About half the film takes place at sea, with only two characters: our eponymous hero and the Tiger. It has to be said at the outset that the two hardest things in the film world are creating realistic sea conditions and making a cgi of a living creature, with which most people are already familiar. The film has achieved both these feats, with a Tiger that's completely real and a sea that has you wondering whether it truly is cgi. Much of the sea effect is down to Lee's imaginative decision to build a much larger tank than films normally use, and to create breakwaters within the tank to stop the waves behaving like a child's paddling pool.

Throughout, there's an air of unreality pervading everything; the floating island sequence is simply astonishing and possibly unique while the sequences featuring flying fish and an enormous whale are little short of breathtaking. But the philosophical dream-like air prepares the audience nicely to the film's ultimate denouement. And that is exceptionally well done.

It's not an action film by any means, but if you enjoy a gently paced and beautifully shot film , with the first large movie water tank that manages to produce waves which don't appear to be on a duck pond, then this is for you.
