I don't see why this movie is getting all the attention it is getting. I'll admit, visually, it soars. This movie arguably has some of the greatest special effects ever made. But everything else makes it fall flat.
First of all, this movie was way longer than it needed to be and dragged on and on. By the time fighting scenes in the end were just starting, I was exhausted. Also, by the time the fighting scenes were just starting, the visuals were beginning to lose their effects. I saw this movie in 3-D and was taken away by the amazing effects and the world of Pandora. But, like I said before, they eventually lost their effect. The love story was cheesy and I coundn't connect with the characters(I wasn't upset that about half of them died at the end.) The humor was a little flat, with Cameron just throwing in a cuss word to every line to make it appeal to most. But what hurt this movie the most was the repetitive and thoroughly predictable storyline. Yes, I'm sure all you fans have heard of this before. However, maybe it's just me, but when it comes to movies, story comes first. I mean, come on! Guy works to win trust of a group of people that don't like him at first, eventually does, falling in love with someone significant in the group, ends up pissing them all off including the girl, wins back their trust, fights with them against his original group, eventually wins the battle against all odds, almost dying in the process and joining the group permanently in the end. The story was also predictable throughout, me guessing all that I mentioned before.
Personally, if for some unknown reason that you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you go see it. It's a totally new experience visually, but everything else in the movie has been seen already.
