Enter the World of Pandora.
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.
James Cameron's next film is just going to be footage of him squealing with glee, naked, touching himself, in a pile of your hard earned money, on a greenscreen backdrop, in 3D, mocking you for spending so much cash to see his hokey movies. You'll love it and it will break all kinds of records and James Cameron will then buy the moon.
...Right. Ok, so I'll be honest. The first time I saw this I thought it was a technological masterpiece and was blown away by what I was watching. I rated it 4 stars.
Now, watching it at home on the small screen, I had to struggle to finish it. I was bored out of my skull. Sure, it is still a feast of well made CGI and innovative technology and I applaud Cameron for it. But he should have thought about the plot a bit harder. Just a tad.
Still, the plot is what it is and doesn't do justice to the visual achievements, but that's not what irked me about it now. This film's ego is too big. It…
The most overrated movie of all time.
James Cameron's Avatar, above all else, is a transporting and utterly breathtaking experience. Let's face it, whether you were for or against this movie from the beginning, you cannot deny the miraculous and wondrous scope of the entire project. In terms of the hype and build-up for the film's initial release, there has never been a film that was as-talked about and water-cooler friendly than Avatar. Hell, I remember going to see the film opening night on the biggest screen possible in 3D, and at least three people that I knew were there. It was an event, one that brought the collective moviegoing audience together for a ride that hasn't been bested in modern cinema.
Now, I'm just going to…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Dammit, I'm starting to feel like this film's fickle mistress.
The first time I watched this I rated it four stars, the second time I wasn't that generous.
Yesterday my mate wanted to show off his 'I'm single and have too much money' TV and decided to do that by screening Avatar. I was not exactly bursting at the seems with enthusiasm.
Still something funny happened. Going in and knowing I felt the story to be bland and predictable I could somehow appreciate Cameron's obvious skill at creating unique visuals and marvellous action sequences much more.
I actually enjoyed myself a bit, which surprised me a lot.
So I'll settle the difference and leave it at that. ..
Though it certainly isn't the classic James Cameron would have liked it to be nor is it deserving of the 2+ billion it made at the box office, Avatar is a nice science-fiction action film worthy of a rainy day watch if you missed it in theaters.
Pretty overrated film. Besides the visuals this movie is pretty terrible. Dialogue is crap and the story is predictable and anticlimactic. I thought this film was a big disappointment
İlk 3 boyutlu film. Sinemalara geldiğinde hem 3 boyuttan korktuğum için hemde tam manasıyla bilmediğim için düz şekilde izlemiştim. Arkadaşım 3 boyutlu olarak izlemişti benim öyle izlemediğimi öğrenince 3 boyutluya tekrar gidelim istersen demişti. O anda anlamıştım 3 boyutlu olarak izlemem gerektiğine. Gerçekten 3 boyutlu hali normal halinin 3 katı daha güzeldi. Nefesim kesilmişti. Film dünyası bu filmden sonra yavaş yavaş 3 boyuta geçiş yaptı. Film hakkında ise; bana çok eğlenceli gelen film konusu bakımından biraz zayıf gelmişti. Aksiyon olarak o zamanın en bol efektli ve en güzel filmiydi.
Bilim kurgu sevenlerin 3D şekilde izlemesi şiddetle önerilir. Hatta herkesin önerilir.

In 2009, i was a 11 years old boy watching Avatar in 3d for the first time, and i remember leaving the cinema stunned and amazed, it was the most beautiful movie that i had ever seen, and yeah it was so fucking awesome and in school we just talk about avatar for days.
Now 6 years later, when i'm 17 i finally decided to re-watch the movie (also in 3d) for make a comparison, i indeed forget a lot about the movie, so now it was kind…
The visuals can't be denied, nor the effort that has gone into it, but the acting and script leave a fair bit to be desired.
Had to revisit this movie today. Hadn't seen it for over 3 years......and it didn't disappoint in one bit.
The legendary floating Mountains of Pandora.......Probably the most stunning cinematic effect ever seen in a movie – On par with the Battle @ Helms Deep in LOTR’s 2. James Cameron really takes film making to the edge and pulls it back in at the very last moment. A true master of the traditional blockbuster film.
There really isn’t the words to describe this movie.....you need to see it to believe it.
When I first saw this in the Imax in 3d I left praising this film to no end. Then I saw it in 2d on my tv. And I fell asleep. And now no one really talks about. As no one should.
Como Pocahontas, solo que peor, y con porno alienígena.
astounding in 3-D... the plot was a new twist on an old story, but the SFX put it over the top.
