Pros: Well directed, scenery is beautiful, a 40-minute climax where James Cameron blows stuff up     Cons: The preceding two hours - dead disbelief suspension and moral-whipping     The Bottom Line: Avatar's acclaim keeps my faith in humanity from getting too high.     You know, it's usually actors who are associated with chewing the scenery. James Cameron's highly acclaimed, 12-years-in-the-making spectacle Avatar is a breathtaking example …

The world created in this movie is incredible! I would love to live on pandora. James Cameron did a great job at utilizing the 3D tech.

   Avatar is very clean on the eyes. And impresses the audience with it's stunning animations. It is a story of a marine that is put into another dimension to cooperate with the Navi community in order to build and co-exist with the humans.      The main character ends up not just wanting to co-exist, but live with them without the humans interference.      Long story short, it's a great movie to see with the family, and if you see it in …

It's best not to compare Avatar 3-D to an ordinary movie. It's more like one of those rides at an amusement park, where you put on 3-D glasses and sit in a moving chair, or like an Imax event, where what you really want is not so much a story but an experience, to see something new, something you've never seen before. Most of those films do not really have brilliant stories behind them, and the narration in Imax films is usually pretty preachy, but what you get from them is a few moments of immersion, …

James Cameron has made the most fun, exhilarating thriller movie of the year. I came into the theater, remembering the critics praise and the buzz of everyone saying that the movie was awesome. So I had high expectations, but I mean really really high. Even with such high expectation, the movie manages to exceed them.      The plot is simple. But in a way it’s organized and crafted superbly, you are guaranteed to have fun. Yes it’s a little bit obvious but do not …

Visual crack, decent story, way too loooong. Definitely not Cameron's best work in my opinion, but well worth a watch.

Visually stunning but intelligance insulting story of a man who becomes an alien and finds love only to turn on his fellow man, but they were assholes so it's okay. Painfully obvious parallells to real life events make this obvious to see what angle they're working on.

Should have been called 'Dances with Wolves in Space'. The stunning graphics are the only thing original about this yawnfest.

I'm not really into scifi movies but was hearing the hype about this movie from all my friends. My husband and I decided to check it out in 3D ofcourse making it quite the movie "experience." I absolutely loved the graphics and visuals and the story line was very moving as well. What struck me the most was paraplegic Jack Sulley's new ability to walk and run as he is granted a mental link with a scientifically created Na'vi human hybrid and the freedom he finds living and interacting with the Na'vi …

Ambitious. Impressive. Too bad it tanked so hard at the BO. Hope Cameron doesn't become discouraged.

i love the way the humans try to relate to the others. i think that jack or whatever his name was found the one place he was really looking for.

After never watching it in theaters (against the recommendations of everyone I knew who HAD seen it), I finally got around to watching this. It was a decent movie and I'd recommend people to watch it - I'm guessing since I missed out on all the cool and epic 3D effects, I'm missing part of what makes this such a big hit, but for me it was just a decent film.

Lovely
It is the year 2154, and Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) arrives on the planet Pandora, which is home to a rare mineral needed back on earth.  Scientists there have created "avatars" which are a cross between humans and the indigenous blue Na'vi people; Sully is asked to use his avatar to befriend the locals and get them to leave the area so mining can expand.        The movie blends live actors and computer-generated scenes …

Good movie with a message that I hope everybody gets.

If you are open to new movies that are not following the trend (repeats or rehashes of tv shows or older movies) and like to have an adventurous scifi side, this movie might be for you. It's not so outlandish and farfetched and you can see the meaning behing the movie. It's very long, but it doesn't drag. Open your mind and listen to the message contained inside and you will find it an enjoyable movie!

In ten years people will look back and mark the release of Avatar as a moment that everything changed.  Movies that don't use motion capture computer generated imaging (CGI) will not be able to compete with movies that do.  TrueD is a better 3D system and will be used to a much greater extent in years to come, but the seamless blending of live film and CGI is the real breakthrough.      In not-too-many years, we will have a new western (or other action genre) starring …
