There is so much that is remarkable about Avatar that its failings - clunky writing, clumsy love story - are easily brushed away.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.8/10

Hype and overly zealous fans be equally damned, Avatar remains a fine, if flawed, film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

It's rare that a movie can inspire genuine awe but Cameron has succeeded in another landmark technical achievement.
May 16, 2010
Demonstrates just how much the world of mainstream Hollywood action filmmaking has suffered without James Cameron active the last decade-plus.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

As adventure movies go, it is impressively new in every way except the way that matters most -- storytelling. Its look will last. But its heart won't go on.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

After revisiting Pandora via Blu-ray transmission, I have to state the obvious: this is some serious movie-making. There's good reason it's the highest grosser in film history.

Who needs 3-D? The Blu-ray Avatar jumps off the small screen until the director's clunky moralizing takes over.

Avatar spans genres and will truly please all generations of a family with perfect pacing that makes the 162 minute running time feel like a breeze.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

A spectacular visual experience unlike anything you've seen before.
Full Review | Original Score: A

It's the experience, more than the story, that's worth celebrating here.

The movie looks like the kind of gaudy, 1970s airbrush painting you'd see on a van owned by your stoner friend who goes to too many Rush concerts.
March 12, 2010
Every ounce of James Cameron's energy in this fantasy epic is in making the audience's eyes pop out and lie on the floor in submission to the 3-D wonderment on the screen.

El argumento no es innovador pese a lo que el mismo Cameron pueda decir, sin embargo, visualmente en cine y en 3D, nunca se ha visto nada como Avatar.

For all its powerful technologies, Avatar can't get out from under its essential cardboardness.
February 13, 2010
"The year's most ambitious film is so breathtaking, it detracts you from the fact that Cameron's characters are caricatures, and too much of the dialogue is stock. The good news? None of it matters."

Ambitious but not overreaching, Avatar is a stunning piece of blue heaven.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 8, 2010
Entertaining enough and stunning to look at but essentially an exceedingly detailed three hour video game -- without the benefit of remote controls
February 1, 2010
Rebirths the old fashioned action epic in a era of soulless marketing machines, desensitizing shock pieces, and overrated indie-art imposters. Cameron's vision exceeds the hype.

...a big, dumb movie built to make money but hardly worthy of serious examination. Avatar isn't only critic-proof, it resists serious criticism. You might as well analyze a beach ball.
Full Review | Original Score: 85/100

...as lush and impressive as one might've expected.
