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

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.

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

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.

January 10, 2010
Alternates between a slurry of Franz Marc expressionism and the most elaborate Thundercats episode ever made
January 9, 2010
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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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.
January 5, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.
