Hmm I really want to see this. I rarely make it to the movies but this has pretty good reviews. i like to watch movies to enjoy them.. not to poke holes or be hypercritical of little stuff (e.g., transformers.. fun movie, terribly designed plot)
I really enjoyed it. I saw it in Imax 3D...very cool.
I watched this movie in IMAX 3D and it was visually awesome. Definitely a C plot, but A+++++ visuals. I really don't think it would be good in normal viewing.
I hope all action movies come out in this format its about ten times better than normal viewing.
LOL @ guys getting butt-hurt over my opinion.
Saying this movie has a good storyline is like saying fern gully was written by shakespear.
Oh ok thanks for clearing that up. :rolleyes:
Movie was good. The 3D visuals were awesome.
I Saw the 3D version and actually opted not to see it in IMAX.
I went and saw the Dark Knight in Imax after seeing it in the regular theatre and while it was spectacular the screen was so large that i was missing **** from focusing on another area.
I see you guys got jokes.
I saw it last night. Very impressed. 4/5.
I really liked it. Great special effects of course. Very nice fight scenes. The story line was predictable but it was an enjoyable sci-fi flick.
I give it a 5/5..
I don't get why people are hating the anti-human in this thread.
When we have alien movies, 9 times out of 10 the aliens come to destroy us to use our resources. Is this not the same, only we're the aliens destroying them to use their resources?
I actually did not want to see the movie when my in-laws said we were going to see it that night. I sucked it up and went anyways and was blown away.
Stop being overly critical .
4/5 ... it's a great flick . Takes you away from everything for a bit and is a fun time .
I also wanted to add that District 9 is a better movie. More original, better characterisation and more intense and suspensful action sequences.
Thinking back on Avatar I'm beginning to realise it was more flawed than I first noticed. One thing that annoyed me was how derivative it all was, I don't think there was a single fresh cinematic concept in the film (unlike District 9 or The Matrix for example). Even the flora and fauna of Pandora were derivative: three legged horses and dogs, pterodactyls, plants and trees, it was basically Earth with a slightly different evolutionary chain.
I also don't understand why the humans were computer generated, resulting in a loss of the subtleties of their facial expression, much of the acting was already wooden enough.
In spite of these things it was still pretty good, perhaps 3.5/5.
James Cameron's earlier efforts are far superior. Terminator 1 and 2, Aliens, The Abyss, all better films than Avatar.
There's a sequence in The Abyss where Ed Harris desperately performs CPR on his dying wife. It's one of James Cameron's finest moments, and probably has more emotion, more tension and more potency than the entirity of Avatar.
