A life worth watching on as big of screen as possible and the 3D is worth the money too.
**** ½ out of 5
Rated PG for emotional thematic content throughout, and some scary action sequences and peril

Article first published as Movie Review: Life of Pi on Blogcritics.
Over the years Pi nearly gets killed wanting to see into a Bengal tiger’s soul; then when he is a teenager (now played by Suraj Sharma) his father informs the family that they will be moving to Winnipeg, Canada. The animals are packed on board a freighter ship and they hit the high seas. The meat of the story picks up here when the ship sinks, killing everyone on board, aside from Pi, the tiger, a hyena, an orangutan, and a zebra with a broken leg. Now Pi is set against all odds with far worse stowaways than Castaway’s Wilson ever could have been.
