It's almost completely hokey, but it's also a major work, a first-class piece of big mainstream filmmaking.

It's safe to say computer graphics will never be the same.

With its incredibly stunning visuals and compelling story line, James Cameron's 'Avatar' is memorable and meaningful. It's so much more than a film that looks cool with a 3-D treatment.

There is nothing new in the story department, but let's give it some credit for tapping into a cultural zeitgeist of sorts and approaching its well-worn story with renewed technical pizazz.

Cameron nous offre un spectacle diablement efficace, et le document le plus pertinent jusqu'à maintenant pour justifier l'émergence des nouvelles technologies 3-D au cinéma.

Alternates between a slurry of Franz Marc expressionism and the most elaborate Thundercats episode ever made

Worthington and Saldana provide enough wattage to keep the film's human center alive and beating, while Cameron wraps their story in an armature of generally impressive 3D attractions as well as a righteousness that's touching yet all too simplistic

When all the hype and hullabaloo about Avatar calms down, we will be left with a film that's no masterpiece, but still well worth seeing.

Avatar is overlong, dramatically two-dimensional, smug and simplistic.
January 5, 2010
Yes, you are effectively watching a special effects showcase - but no more so than Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings. And that was nine hours long. So go and see Avatar on the biggest screen possible - you won't regret it.

Avatar is a phenomenon you can't ignore, monumentally imposing and done with extraordinary expertise - but the same could be said of the Dubai skyline, and I'm not sure that represents any future worth investing in.
January 5, 2010
It's 100% genuinely undeniably categorically without-a-doubt unlike anything you've ever seen before and if you like graphics and special effects and stuff that's totally new, you'll love it.

Un entretenimiento fascinante, con pasajes de inusual belleza, servido con mano maestra por James Cameron. Es también un alegato ecologista y pacifista, justo en tiempos de creciente militarismo y abuso de recursos naturales.

Action, splendid visuals, romance, and even relevance. Energized pace outshines even the juicy special effects, which seamlessly integrate live action and cgi.

But everything about the story, the setting, the dialog, and the parts that aren't purely visual is awful.

Although it looks seamless and wonderful, I'm starting to wonder how worthy it really is to use high-end computer animation to top the next movie in approximating real life.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

[Cameron] is still the king of action and suspense, the last third such a visceral whirlwind of kinetically staged mayhem my eyes almost popped right out of their sockets.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 28, 2009
Works as both a socially conscious Western update and as a true SF film, revealing the influences of such fine genre writers as Philip Jose Farmer, Larry Niven and especially Edgar Rice Burroughs (the 'John Carter of Mars' series).

as grand in scope, ambitious in production, and technologically advanced as we would expect

And with this, the film decade comes to a disappointing conclusion.
