The King of the World has returned! Mr. James Cameron’s youngest “Avatar” is a mind-blowing adventure and the most impressive and intricate work of art, I’ve ever seen.
When his twin brother is killed, disabled ex-Marine Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) is recruited to aid a mining expedition on the distant jungle moon of Pandora as only his DNA will bond with the alien hybrid body, known as an Avatar, that allows humans to breathe the toxic air. With orders to infiltrate the Na’vi, Jake finds himself falling in love with native girl, Neytiri (Zoe Saldana).
“Avatar'” was created twelve years ago by Cameron, but was ahead of its time. Cameron had to shelve the project and wait for technology to catch up to the script he had written. In 2005 Cameron thought he was close enough to push the technology to tell the story he always wanted to tell and went back to work. It cost Jim blood, sweat and tears and of course a lot of money, but the result is just fascinating, mesmerizing. Money well spent.
I am really happy that the movie turned out great. Not just for Jim’s sake or because it had been a while since I’d seen a really good movie, but because of all the “Avatar” haters out there. All of those people who were trashing the movie before even watching it. They didn’t give the movie a chance and let everyone believe that the movie was going to be really bad.
Well, they were all wrong and I hope they are honest enough to admit that. OK, maybe the love story wasn’t really original, but it worked. However, if the story doesn’t work for you, everything else will make up for it. When you watch the movie in 3D it becomes a transcendent and amazing experience that’s the closest you will ever come to setting foot on a strange new world. The length of the movie is 2 hours and 41 minutes, but it looked a lot shorter. I wanted more. I just didn’t want it to stop. It was that good.
I advise them and everyone to give the movie a chance and watch it the way it was mend to be watched, in 3D. You won’t regret it!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. When you’re watching the movie, it’s completely normal to be attracted to Neytiri ? Right? Heck even Jim says he’s attracted to the Na’vi creatures!
