Visually spectacular. Storyline not so much.
Absolutely well done. The pain staking detail added to the already great visual effects. I didn't touch my pop corn I was so in awe!
Incredible visuals. Best 3D I'd ever experienced!
The king of hype himself James Cameron makes this movie less than the some of all its parts. Great visual effects help hide a weak script. Think 'Dances With Wolves' in outer space (except not as intelligent) and you get the idea.
Incredible to look at, unfortunately the story is weak. The visuals are so impressive you don't notice the lame storyline till a second viewing
By far, the best movie I have seen this year!
I found it a bit long but the digital scenes were spectacular, like some kind of utopia.
This movie was really the start of a new 3D digital era from my viewpoint. The film was awesome just from the aspect of techonology and 3D effect! I saw this in 3D at the theatre and totally enjoyed it and since have also rewatched it on DVD. Great film! Entertaining but also makes you think about consequences of war, genocide, value of natural resources and rights of land owners. Definitely recommend seeing!
Inspirational and though-provoking look at the connection between humans and the environment. The film that has forever expanded the possibilities of what movie making can be.
AWESOME movie :) Didn't think I'd like it since I don't usually like these sci-fi/action type movies, but the plot was great.
Stunning visuals, 3D used efficiently, and the story is fun for any sci-fi fan out there. Story and characters have depth.
Visually remarkable, aurally dismal. Unobtanium? Really?!?!?! I hope James Cameron lets a real writer take a pass at the sequel's script.
Amazing looking movie and a great story line
A great technical achievement, but an overly simple story and barely there characters keep it from becoming a true classic.
If you loved Dancing with Wolves, you will like Avatar.
Stunning movie...plot is fantastic and imagery is just beautiful. One of the best movies I've seen in a long time :)
the last half hour was the best
Brilliant piece of work here! Love the 3D as well
Yes the special effects, as we have been told by the media, may be groundbreaking, the scenery picturesque, and the action sequences in your face, but the wooden dialogue, the predictability, the over explanation, the clichéd characters, make for a violent cartoon rather than an inspiring movie for those past their 13th birthday.
It was a good movie for a fantasy movie. classic plot.. love.. heartbreak. betrayal.. good movie but not the best.
digital films leave the audience wondering why they leave with a head ache, please make films on film again!!
A total visual buffet, when watching this film. I became full of food for my thoughts. Wow factor for me.
One amazing movie that will change things forever. It was made for 3D and Cameron did a Brilliant JOB!
NO, not Dances with Wolves, Fern Gully! Watch it and you'll see. Lawsuit in the works! Avatar a good movie, watching it over and over till it hurts, play the game!
great movie saw it with my 6 year old when it was done he said it was not that long. great movie when you can keep a six year old's attention for 3 hours
totally amazing in 3D!
A very excellent movie with superior acting,makes me wish i had my own Avatar.
It was worth the wait and line up! girlfriend and I loved it!
THIS WAS A GREAT MOVIE, VERY WELL DONE
Great special effects but all the hype didn't quite match the product.
Not the big deal everybody makes it out to be, script is not that good and its too long.
Quite honestly, one the best movies I have seen in years. Has a whimsical quality about it. A piece of art as well as a sweet story. Well done.
Wonderful - worth all the hype. Beautiful cinematography!
A wonderful movie with a great story line and great imagination I loved it
One of the best 3D movies out there.
phenomenal, couldn't wait to see it again, bought it as soon as it came out.
This is an awesome movie. I never expected to enjoy it as much as I did. It actually makes a super Political statement. It shows how wrong it is for one "culture" to decide that another culture is not worthwhile. It shows how countries how invaded, captured and tried to destroy and change another country's culture and beliefs. The 3D experiece is wonderful. We are there in Pandora while watching Avatar.
