With `Avatar` James Cameron has turned one man`s dream of the movies into a trippy joy ride about the end of life - our moviegoing life included - as we know it. Several decades in the dreaming and more than four years in the actual making, the movie is a song to the natural world that was largely produced with software, an Emersonian exploration of the invisible world of the spirit filled with Cameronian rock `em, sock `em pulpy action. Created to conquer hearts, minds, history books and box-office records, the movie - one of the most expensive in history, the jungle drums thump - is glorious and goofy and blissfully deranged. ...Read full review
Avatar is a stunning achievement, the definitive big-screen event of our generation. Words seem hopelessly inadequate to try and capture its spectacular three-dimensional glory, but suffice it to say that it sucks you in and immerses you smack bang into a whole new world, giving you a cinematic experience so goddamned rich it becomes impossible to assess it as a mere movie. Watch this, and watch it in 3D. Trust me. ...Read full review
Let`s get this clear; to experience Avatar you HAVE to watch it in 3D. It`s not going to be the same otherwise. Clearly this isn`t the first time a studio has put in a lot of hard work for 3D, but Cameron takes the game to a totally new level. He does what Peter Jackson did a few years back with the Lord of the Rings trilogy - using the million dollar budget smartly and tactfully to create a visual spectacle never seen before! As you put on your glasses and get sucked into a world of new colours, dimensions and landscapes you forget you are watching a 3D film. ...Read full review
Why do we fall in love with the Star Wars films? What makes us embrace the inhabitants of Middle Earth, and relish The Lord of the Rings saga? Why do our hearts beat so fast when those dinosaurs chase the humans in Jurassic Park? We know those worlds don`t really exist, we`re aware that what we`re seeing is just hokum. And yet we go along for the ride anyway, because - let`s face it - it allows us to have such fun. ...Read full review
Avatar, a film almost entirely created with special effects, is visually overwhelming. Cameron has created a new world with natives, animals, plant life and even a new language. Pandora and its people - the Na`vi - are perfectly rendered in minute detail. I only wish the story had as much texture. ...Read full review
Circa 2154. The US army lands up in Pandora, an earth-sized moon in outer space. Their objective: to extract the much-needed minerals from Pandora`s soil. But before they can do that, they must fight the peace-loving indigenous inhabitants of the alien world, relocate or destroy them with their spies and bombs. ...Read full review
The wonderful part about it is that it can be read anyway. Read it as a metaphor for the fight against terror: the Na`vi being Iraq and the corporate-military complex that is hunting for Unobtainium-a mineral vital to Earth`s energy needs-being America. Read it as the fight of the Indians against the all-conquering first Americans. Or read it as the fight of the planet against the humans who ill use it. ...Read full review
Back in 1996, James Cameron announced that he would be creating a film called Avatar, a science-fiction epic that would feature photo-realistic, computer-generated characters. He had a treatment for the film, which already defined many things, including the Na`vi - a primitive alien race standing ten feet tall with shining blue skin, living in harmony with their jungle-covered planet Pandora. Soon after, though, Avatar had to be shelved as the technology of the time could not satisfy the creative desires of the director. Fast-forward to October 2009: Dan Lemmon, FX supervisor and Andy Jones, animation director at Weta Digital have about two weeks left of visual effects production for Avatar. The near-900 strong crew spanned across six locations are practically working around the clock to achieve what was deemed impossible a decade earlier ...Read full review
