In the 22nd century, a paraplegic Marine is dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission, but becomes torn between following orders and protecting an alien civilization.
Actually i love this movie because of the mad technology which is used by this film... it's so mind-boggling, fantastic.. as for the storyline.. well it's just average, nothing special.. the acting is not that bad.. Sam made his best effort to make this movie so entertaining...
I felt like I was the only one that thought it was a too long, overrated, non interesting piece of rubbish!
BUt now that I've seen the other reviews I'm happy.
I went to see Avatar twice in the cinema. And both times in 3D. The 3D hurt my head, and I spent most of the time watching it with my glasses off blurry.
The storyline COULD have been good, if not for the fact that they stretched it out for all it was worth. 3 hours long is not fun to sit through, and the story didn't get exciting until at least 20 minutes towards the end.
It was a totally overrated movie, and the fact that it seemed to be a mix of a load of other stories as well didn't help
Go and see Avatar if you want. Just don't say I didn't warn you. -.-
Avatar is one of the movies I absolutely fell in love with. The wonderful reviews also show a mutual love for the movie, dispite a few people trying to spoil the fun. I was moved when the Na'vi lost their home, the Hometree.
If you missed the chance to see Avatar in theaters, you can buy it in 3D on Blu-Ray and DVD, which I HIGHLY suggest you do.
I loved this movie, I was pretty reluctant to see it but when I finally went I was glad I came. It starts out a little confusing and you still wont get the first part by the end but
everything else was great they had an amazing set and overall this movie was downright thrilling!
This movie was pretty good. I am very excited if there was going to be Avatar 2 coming out. I'd definitely go and see it! It's worth the money. Everything about the movie was new and very exciting to watch as the movie unravels it's hidden mysteries to you. Although if the next movie could be a little bit more on how the Navi lives, it would be pretty cool to see that too. AND most of all, i think that the discovery channel should do like a commentary of the Avatar world. That would be AWESOME!!
James Cameron knows how to entertain intelligent human beings! This is an extremely well crafted movie that criticizes economical expediency at the expense of the destruction of another people's culture. I had the feeling that one could read America's hunger for oil and invasion of Iraq, into the plot of this allegory. But beyond this political message, this is a delightful excursion into a sci-fi world that is painstakingly created by teams of talented artists. It is worth every penny. I can highly recommend this movie to you. The design of the vehicles alone, is worth the price of admission!
