In the novel, Pi is an archetypal hero because a traumatic event changes his life forever, and he suffers from his journey.
Orange juice is a peaceful orangutan, but she becomes violent when facing the hyena. Pi gives up his vegetarianism and eats turtles and fishes. In Life of Pi, Yann Martel describes the struggle to live and result of changes in Pi who has religious belief and the four different animals in order to show that they will often do supernormal, unexpected and shameful things and changes their own natures to survive.

An example of this is the main protagonist of the novel The Life of Pi, Piscine Molitor Patel, by Yann Martel. After selling the zoo in India, Pi and his family decide to move to Canada. During their trip to Canada, however, their cargo ship encounters a raging storm that sinks the ship.

Spielberg continues to create tension in the action sequences with the shark by suggesting its presence once more with the yellow compressed air barrel, and the prosthetic shark is only fully seen when it attacks Quint. This scene focuses on shocking the audience with the graphic scene of Quint being eaten, as the creature that summoned so much suspense and dread earlier in the film, is arguably no longer frightening in its full form. In conclusion, the cinematography in Jaws functions as a way of creating suspense, the shot choices made are able to manipulate the audience into believing there is a shark, when the real animal is not fully seen on screen until minute 81. The shots used throughout
Hook also succeeds in capturing the Darling brothers and the Lost Boys, but when Peter and Hook fight their final battle, Hook loses and is eaten by a crocodile. Seeing peter slowly advancing upon him [Hook] through the air with dagger poised, he sprang upon the bulwarks o cast himself into the sea. He did not know that the crocodile was waiting for him; for we purposely stopped the clock that this knowledge might be spared him: a little mark of respect from us at the end.
The bond was less of a friendship and more of a companionship. This is understood when Pi states,”You may be astonished that in such a short period of time I could go from weeping over the muffled killing of a flying fish to gleefully bludgeoning to death a Dorado”(Martel 205). Richard Parker pulled Pi away from his religious beliefs by creating a sense of confinement and saying, “If you don't kill, I will”. This results in Pi being pushed to break his vegetarianism and brutally kill the Durado to please Richard Parker. Pi sees richard parker as a companion and in turn feels the need to provide for him.
Rainsford thought that if he got caught by General Zaroff that he was going to get killed, but General Zaroff never said what was going to happen if he got caught. This is why I believe that the killing of general Zaroff by Rainsford was not justifiable because he could have simply came through on the deal. All he had to do stay hidden the three days and General Zaroff would have simply placed him on the mainland near a
The pain he is feeling is killing Santiago, which is an internal feeling but the creatures he is killing keeps him and many others alive causing an external feeling or condition. Hemingway portrays the old fisherman as the crucified saint when the sharks arrive to strip away the marlin. When Santiago uses the harpoon, the shot is similar to the sound of the nails being driven into the hands of Christ.
