========================================================

This is not James Cameron’s finest movie by a wide stretch. It has neither the thought-provoking scariness of Terminator 2 (1991) nor the affecting quality of Titanic (1997). The story is as hackneyed as they come and the acting is never more than merely serviceable. But every movie has the right to be judged by its best qualities, and if these are stunning enough they can overcome many shortcomings.

By far the finest side of Avatar is the visual one. That! Is! Stupendous! It’s a spectacle on such scale, and of such overwhelming magnificence, that I have never encountered before. Since just about all of the action takes place on a planet with lower gravity than ours, everything is bigger and stranger than anything you – or at least I – have ever seen on the screen. But this is no foolish passion of the “size does matter” type, nor is the profusion of forms and colours promiscuous. No Baz Luhrmann syndrome here! Everything is done with impeccable taste. And the direction, as you may well expect from Jim Cameron, will often send your head spinning around, especially if seen on a big screen.

For the visual side alone, and for me personally, Avatar is a revolutionary masterpiece well worth five full stars. It’s a completely greatness . Times change little. There were massive movie spectacles in the 1930s and the 1960s. Just think of Gone With the Wind (1939) and Cleopatra (1963), respectively. But nowadays technology has reached a level unimaginable then, a level quite sufficient to carry out a three-hour movie alone. There is nothing wrong with this when it is done as well as it is here.

Last and least, a few words in defence of the “shortcomings”. The story about the clash between technologically superior, but morally inferior, culture and its exact opposite may be hackneyed, but it is not trivial. Certainly, it is not irrelevant; there have been far too many tragic examples in our history to shelve the issue for good. It may well happen again in the future, especially on another planet. Besides, the plot is well-paced and, within its limitations, devoid of the inanity that usually offends all but the most meagre intelligence in this type of movie. As for the acting, though it is at best just good, it is never thunderously bad. Extremely aggravated versions of both drawbacks – mind-numbingly idiotic script and horrendous posing instead of acting – all too often accompany movies that rely chiefly on spectacle. This is definitely not the case here.

In conclusion, see it. It will blow you away. I guarantee. Even if you are destined to detest it, I don’t think you will regret the time you have spent on it. If possible, see it in the biggest cinema around, or at least on Blu-ray and the finest home video and audio system you can lay your hands on. Do choose the Extended Cut. It’s nearly three hours long, but it neither drags nor bores. ( )

A militant corporation is mining an inhabited planet.

I was entertained. The action scenes are done quite well, although they're not especially memorable. The science fiction aspects don't work at all; I think Cameron forgot about a third of the way through writing the script that it wasn't supposed to be a magical fantasy world. And the not-so-subtle racial undertones made me fairly uncomfortable. Of course, it's the special effects that matter for this sort of movie, and they're great. But when all is said and done, I have to wonder why, if you're spending $250 million on a movie, you can't be bothered to come up with a story more compelling than a rip-off of Fern Gully.

I don't give 5 stars to many films. I'm kind of surprised at how much I love this movie, in fact, because I never even bothered to see it when it was in the theatre. After all, I reasoned, while it's goundbreaking in terms of the way it was made -- and even though it's opened up an entirely new way of making a movie, no one's ever said anything good about the story. And isn't that the real reason for making a movie? To tell a story? And Cameron _did_ have a story to tell.

Even though the story reminds me greatly of _Dances With Wolves_, it is told beautifully. A man from a different way of life, living in a dystopia, comes to a new place and meets a different people. Unlike his own, these folks live in unity with the land and nature. He learns their ways and comes to love them and their world passionately. At last, however, his own people come and try to destroy the simpler, gentler culture because they have something the dystopians want/need. In the case of the Lakota people of _Dances_, it would ultimately gold. Here, on Pandora, it is "unobtainium."

Remarkably, the addition of the extra few minutes in the Collectors' special edition makes a great movie even better. The added footage shows how bad Earth has become, explains exactly why unobtainium is so highly sought-after (It's not too big a spoiler for me to reveal that it's a room temperature superconductor, something of a "holy grail" to today's scientists), and expands on the link types of critters found on Pandora and the Na'vi's link to them and all of nature. I wish (and hope) that in the ultimate edition, he spends more time letting us get to know the People better, since all but Natiri are one-dimensional. This was one of the strengths in Dances With Wolves -- Costner fleshed out many of his Lakotas, and we grew to love the people individually as well as the culture.

Do I recommend Avatar? You betcha. I've got both releases now, and will spend more money buying the next, ultimate version when it is released in the future (or, to quote Tommy Lee Jones in _Men in Black_, "I guess I'm going to have to buy the White Album all over again."). I'm not anywhere near bored with watching it, and it's going to stay in my DVD player for a while longer. I hope that, if you haven't discovered this great piece of filmmaking for both its story and its ground-breaking techniques. ( )
