It won many awards for example best special effects or best camera. The critics are mainly positive, good dramatically movie with realistic effects and an exciting story, a negative critic says that the german name for the movie “Life of Pi: Shipwreck with a tiger” is a perfect description, because the whole film only seems to act about a shipwreck with a tiger and is therefore rather boring. In my opinion it’s a good dramatically movie, mixed with a sad touch and animated special effects. Computer animated movies are perfect to watch in 3D.
