"Avatar" looks amazing on Blu-ray. If the plot wasn't so pedestrian, it could have been a great film. Paul Chambers, CNN.

If you ever wondered what a live-action Hayao Miyazaki film would look like, Avatar is a damn good approximation.

You can feel Cameron's anger and his passion every time a Na'vi roars. The most exhilarating moments are those when you can feel the director urging his actors to let go completely, to become furious, and to unleash hell.

For all the justifiable knocks on James Cameron's writing, his personal investment in any project is never in doubt. With "Avatar," his passion for pushing the very possibilities of film as a medium pays off. Here's hoping we see him again before 2021.

If cinema is pure escapism, then Avatar provides the ultimate journey to a world unlike anything seen before it, with a deep spiritual core giving substance to its most impressive display of style.

There is so much that is remarkable about Avatar that its failings - clunky writing, clumsy love story - are easily brushed away.

Hype and overly zealous fans be equally damned, Avatar remains a fine, if flawed, film.

It's rare that a movie can inspire genuine awe but Cameron has succeeded in another landmark technical achievement.

Demonstrates just how much the world of mainstream Hollywood action filmmaking has suffered without James Cameron active the last decade-plus.

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.

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.

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.
