Review: Life of Pi
In a Nutshell:
A novelist asks a man to recount his story of being shipwrecked with a tiger.
The Bottom Line:
I usually hate sitting in the front row of a cinema, but I loved sitting so close to the screen during Life of Pi. The movie was so full of imagery and visual wonder that I loved the colour to wash over me.
I loved every minute of Life of Pi, the story was fantastic and for a film that many directors burnt out on it looked like Ang Lee accomplished this adaptation easily.
The main drawing point of the film, the tiger, looked fantastic. In fact all the cgi was amazing and provided the sense of true wonderment as this story unfolded.
The film easily made the audience laugh and then drawn into the drama.
I loved the hell out of this movie and it restored my faith in Ang Lee after his horrible adaptation of Hulk (Seriously, what the hell was that?).
A bit of Trivia:
Suraj Sharma had never even seen a Tiger until promoting the movie in Australia.
