A boy, a tiger, a boat. Or not.

  • Nov 30, 2012
A young boy's family is moving their zoo animals from India to Canada when a storm sinks their freighter. The only survivors are Pi, a hyena, a zebra, and a tiger named Richard Parker, who find themselves in a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean.

On the plus side, I liked that the movie was faithful to the book. The photography and special effects were breathtaking; director Ang Lee has created a dreamy, magical, and stunningly beautiful world for Pi. The CGI tiger was excellent; I could not tell when he was drawn and when he was real. The soundtrack is lovely.

On the down side, I found myself glancing at my watch at times, wondering when it would be over. The pace was too slow for me and I think it would have been an even better movie had 15 minutes been cut from it.

The acting was outstanding and fans of the wonderful book will not be disappointed.

A boy, a tiger, a boat. Or not.
