Shortly: In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na'vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Earth people are here to collect some extremely valuable precious metals. Jake's mission is to explore Na'vi and make them leave their land. For this, he uses his Avatar - a body with a mix of people and Na'vi appearance, so that he can walk on foot again...
But the movie is really great! For sure it gets into my list of 50 best movies of the decade.
In visual effects, it is something unbelievable!
That really doesn't sound like a good story
Most reviews here in Finland are in the middle, three star range, and that's what I expect really. Great visual effects but cliche story with not much insight and original message.
Going to see it tomorrow, we'll see how I like it then.
I saw this movie yesterday. The visuals are stunning and it's an entertaining movie but nothing spectacular. Also it is too long and I got bored the last one hr of the movie. Still a lot of amazing work into creating the visuals and worth a watch for that.
That's what I thought: hyped to hell because of its visual but lacking in the story-telling aspect. I'll gladly skip
