This Friday, Ang Lee's big-screen adaptation of "Life of Pi" finally comes ashore.

Based on Yann Martel's Booker Prize-winning novel, the movie follows Pi (Suraj Sharma), a zookeeper's son, who finds himself adrift on a small lifeboat after his ship was destroyed in a storm. He, of course, is not quite alone: Pi is accompanied by a a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a not-so-friendly Bengal tiger -- all of whom are fighting for their survival.

Take a look at our review round-up to see if the flick lives up to the source material.
