Avatar 3D

After no doubt living like a king off the stupendous profits earned by Titanic (the highest grossing film of all time), James Cameron returns to directing blockbusters with the sci-fi action film Avatar. The story is set in 2154, where humanity has discovered the planet Alpha Centuri B-4, a world of not only unimaginable treasures and resources, but also deadly life forms. Those who attempt to use the resources for their own personal gain risk not only the new planet fittingly dubbed Pandora, but also the future of earth itself and all who inhabit it.

Cameron has developed a new visual technique, a dual lens stereoscopic camera, which is the closest cinematic approximation so far to the human eye and is expected to produce the most convincing 3D experience in movie history. It will be applied to the film’s live action scenes that constitute approximately half the film, the rest will be presented through cutting edge CGI techniques. Sigourney Weaver plays the lead role, re-uniting with Cameron for the first time since Aliens, with Michelle Rodriguez and Giovanni Ribisi other notable names to sign on. Some of the film is shot in New Zealand, and Peter Jackson's Weta Digital company is on board to help with visual effects.

Not everyone is turning Blue

Alot of ppl have mixed feelings on this movie but something, that stood out for me mainly was, the amazing Graphics, purely i think if there is another Avatar Movie it would be better, due to advice given from ppls coments all around.

The best frickin movie ever!!!

Omg I frickin loved this movie, it had everything, action, drama, romance and just blew me away with the special effects. One of the best things about this movie is that it actually made you feel like you were there (in the movie) and in doing so, felt real. Definitly a 5 star movie and one I would absoulutely watch again and hope to get on DVD in 3D soon....

Experience is great, story is ripped-off

As awhole this was one POWERFUL experience, I guess the 1970-1980's Starwars for our generation? A visual feast, if you can handle the crap story that has been blended from many hits - extracting the best of each to make a Frankenstein blockbuster - really Dances with Wolves meets Pochohontas or something. But who's really here for the story, this is...

5 star movie, but only at the right venue

I saw this movie in 3D at Sylvia Park and absolutely loved it - my favourite movie ever. It was beautiful, thrilling and inspirational. The detail was amazing and the fantastical flora and fauna were stunning. We left the cinema feeling enchanted and elated and I knew if I had the opportunity I would see it again. I have just returned from seeing it at the...

Much better than I thought it would be...

I didn't want to go and see this movie. I hate movies with all the hype, I hate movies like Alien, I hate Sigourney Weaver, and I hate 'blockbusters'. BUT I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really enjoyed this 3D film, excellent special effects of course. It's American so you can't expect huge depth to the storyline such as something directed by Rolf...

Great movie

As a heavy smoker, my going to the flicks is a rarity. So for me to actually be annoyed when an interval appears says much about this movie. I wanted more film than nicotine and would have been very happy to have had another hours worth. Thanks James.

Avatar is all-enveloping and transporting, with Cameron & Co.'s years of R&D paying off with a film that, as his work has done before, raises the technical bar and throws down a challenge for the many other filmmakers toiling in the sci-fi/fantasy realm.

First, let’s be clear… Avatar is much more than a film. It’s a prescribed cinematic experience. Pure effect. The greatest sideshow on Earth... Game-changing - yes. Spectacular - absolutely. Occasional dodgy dialogue and dramatic imperfections - of course. But still - wait for it… - a titanic achievement.

Once again, [Cameron] has silenced the doubters by simply delivering an extraordinary film. There is still at least one man in Hollywood who knows how to spend $250 million, or was it $300 million, wisely.

A fully believable, flesh-and-blood (albeit not human flesh and blood) romance is the beating heart of "Avatar." Cameron has never made a movie just to show off visual pyrotechnics: Every bit of technology in "Avatar" serves the greater purpose of a deeply felt love story.

A flawed but fantastic tour de force that, taken on its merits as a film, especially in two dimensions, warrants four stars. However, if you can wrap a pair of 3D glasses round your peepers, this becomes a transcendent, full-on five-star experience that's the closest we'll ever come to setting foot on a strange new world. Just don’t leave it so long next time, eh, Jim?

James Cameron's stunning Avatar is ambitious but not quite adventurous enough.
