Life of Pi - The Movie

The movie, Life of Pi was good, very entertaining, visually beautiful, but not as strong as the book. The book is funny. This is not apparent in the movie. The details described in the novel masterfully connect the storyline. Martel is thoughtful where as the screenplay glosses over major points, which would have contributed positively to the viewer’s experience of the movie. Unfortunately, the movie watcher may miss or not fully grasp some major aspects of the plot because it is not completely clear. I thought a boy in a boat with a tiger, lost at sea might get boring to read. Not so! The book captured me from beginning to end, while parts of the movie were flat, unnecessary and not well told.
