Avatar is a movie that has changed film making in many ways. Visually speaking it has established the 3-D element as something that can now be relevant. The visuals are astounding and keep you interested for its length and this is it's strongest point. While there are no true "flukes" in the story telling, the acting is not without flaw and hollywood stereotypes are still there. Also an important note that the story borrows heavily from other works and simply adds a new inspiring twist. Basically Avatar is a breakthrough visual with a solid story line but with shaky foundations.
