Crippled ex-Marine Jake (Sam Worthington) journeys to the beautiful planet Pandora to become an avatar -- a quasi-alien "clone" of his real self -- and unwittingly becomes involved in an interstellar conflict. When the alien Na'vi race rebels against humanity's unchecked exploitation of Pandora's resources, Jake must decide exactly where his loyalties lie. James Cameron directs this dazzling action film that also stars Sigourney Weaver.
It's really well done, but it's nothing out of this world. The plot is nothing new but it cashed in for the CGI, the 3D glasses and its director. It's not bad, but not the best movie ever or best in 2009.
One of the worst films I have ever paid to see. Cloying, simplistic, hackneyed. Use of the term "unobtanium" to describe the precious metal being stolen from the blue people, I think, sums up this disaster of a film perfectly.
There were several climactic situations built over an array of scenes forcing you to draw your own parallels and, possibly intentionally, after a point was made, the movie would lull, as if to give the audience a chance to process everything.
