James Cameron has been hidden from the limelight for a good few years and many upon hearing about Avatar had high hopes, well they should have.
This is Cameron's new masterpiece, a film that creates and leaves an impact on you more powerful than most. The level of detail and depth centered around imagery is breathtaking from the forest floors to the floating mountains. The lush environment is a gem for the eyes and really pushes the boundaries of imagination.
The story, well the story is rather shallow and does require more depth however, the detail placed into every other aspect - the entire dictionary of the Na'vi language is spectacular. The realisation of logic on the animals and the scale of trees down to the lack of gravity on Pandora. I think Cameron has deserved to not be butchered for the story, afterall he has brought us other amazing stories that today are unparalelled.
I recieved a blend of emotions from this film, from excitement to tense and edge of the seat worry for the characters we are following. I personally feel the acting in this film is superb and really drives depth into the characters, most notably Zoe Saldana for her portayal of Naytiri. It is just perfect especially when she express her sorrow - watch out for that scene, it really nails shivers into your spine.
Value? well the value is very good especially for the scale of a film you are getting, the only issue i have with it is that for a major budget film like this you would expect some special features but unfortunately there are none whatsoever, but according to Cameron there will be other versions to come.
Well here is my sum up:
