Life of Pi impresses reviewer

This amazing story of discovery and adventure takes you on a journey with young Piscine “Pi” Patel (Suraj Sharma) as he survives a shipwreck and lives on a life boat with the company of no one except a Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. Based on the novel by Yann Martel, the movie is set up as a series of flashbacks, as an adult Pi (Irrfan Khan) shares his story with a local novelist (Rafe Spall). Suraj Sharma gave a convincing performance as he played teenage Pi in his first ever movie experience. Directed by the accomplished director Ang Lee, also the director of Hulk and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the mix of computer animated graphics and real-life characters was seamless.

Life of Pi is an amazing combination of the spectacular ocean life of the Pacific and the terrors of being stranded all alone. Very pleasing to the eye, with beautiful landscape and astounding nature, the movie is highly enjoyable. Pi’s struggle for survival, living with a 480 pound carnivore, gives us a new appreciation for animals and life in general. I would highly recommend Life of Pi for anyone who is looking for an entertaining movie experience.
