 Ignore the hype

This film is fine. Its not bad, its fine. While the technology behind it is impressive and the 3D was game changing there are several "downers". First, the plot is simple, predictable and feels like an after thought to the 3D. Secondly, without the 3D its an average film, with some cringe worthy dialogue. And to top it all off, the DVD has NO EXTRAS WHAT SO EVER, something which is unexcusable for a film like this, the reasoning behind the lack of extras being simple. THERE WILL BE ANOTHER REISSUE IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS.

Judging this film as it is, without the 3D, minus the big screen and HD surround sound, this film is an average Jim Cameron movie, 30 minutes too long and not well enough written to warrant additional viewings.

 Please don't say this was brilliant.

This movie does nothing new. It has an extremely predictable story, boring characters that you get no information on throughout the course of it. You feel no emotional ties to any of the characters, for apparently it isn't important.

I wouldn't even give this film stars for being a mindless junk-brain-food action film... For I was truely waiting the end of the film. Some films may not claim or try to be intelligent, but atleast they categorise themselves as that - action films are action films, you accept that they aren't going to do anything but entertain you on a none intellectual level. This film however - offers nothing of intelligence, doesn't have constant action, has poor character development & a terrible story.

It blows my mind that so many people love this film, especially my own brother - who I truely admired & deemed an intelligent and tasteful man... Tis amazing how one film opinion can change my view of him.

If you haven't seen many 'AMAZING' films in your life-time, you will enjoy this film... But for anybody with any movie-taste, and has actually seen good movies in their time, you will probably see this for what it actually is.

I don't blame those that love this film, for if you've never experienced anything better than it, of course you're going to love it. I have spent a HUGE portion of my life watching films, buying dvds, and downloading them - from all time frames.

I await people disliking this review purely on the basis that I don't have the same opinion as them. This review is an honest one, and i'm saddened that if you spend enough money on something, it doesn't need any kind of story line, good actors, character development, or even decent & addictive action.

I will now go below, and read all the 5 star reviews and try to realise in my mind why people consider this fantastic.

Expensive film? Yes... It did nothing of any originality though, and it certainly didn't do anything well either, the animations of characters was fantastic, which is why I give it a 2 star - but films are about more than money.

 A most overrated movie

I seen Avatar at the cinema, but to be honest I wasn't that bowled over by it. The first half was incredibly boring and tedious to watch with Sam Worthington getting used to his avatar and getting acquainted with the tribe etc. Thankfully in the second half things do pick up a bit more and the action set pieces are pretty spectacular.

Overall I wasn't incredibly impressed by Avatar, if you like James Cameron's flicks then there's a chance you will like this, but in my humble opinion it was half a good/bad movie that could have been better.

 CAMERONS MASTERPIECE!!!

Every great director has a great film and i thought with James Cameron it could have been any one of Terminator 1 or 2 or even Aliens but this movie sets a new standard in movie making. It took 5 years and $300m to make and it was totally worth it. The plot was solid, the acting was fantastic and the SFX were mindblowing. Despite the brilliant summer of movies this for me is the best of 2009 period. Enjoy

 visually superb - otherwise underwhelming

| | See all payne1990's reviews (6)

starting with the main high-point of the film is the stunning CGI graphics,

other than that, unfortunately - the hype was badly overdone and the film itself was underwhelming.
the storyline was weak,
the characters were mostly rigid and unlikeable as they had no or very lacking personalities,

other than that, it was a horribly overhyped film and I left feeling the entire budget went on the CGI and they had to pay for part-time jobber voice actors and storyline writers.

worth a watch ONCE, other than that not really worth anything for repeat viewings
