This movie is perhaps one of the best films of 2012 and rightfully so. The story I think was a pretty easy on to follow and I like that. What I also like is the relationship between Pi and Richard Parker, they weren't friends in a way. But they managed to find a way to get along and that was the only way they were going to survive, and they relized it. The amount of money that went into this film must of been quite expensive considering all of the special effects, and cinematography. On a rating between 1 and 10 for Life of Pi it would have to be a 9, I just loved the film to death, I think everything fell into place nicely, and props to Ang Lee he is a great filmmaker and he proves it right here. In the end, check it out. If you enjoy films like Cast Away you will probably like this movie. But if you're expecting a more complex story you will be disappointed. But this movie shall not disappoint.
