I would have loved this when I was 12,blissfully ignorant of its almost cartoonishly simplistic statement about American greed vs. an "enlightened" pagan species.Heavy-handed statement,just ripe for the times.Fantastic digital effects,but ultimately a technichal exercise with a popular,crowd-pleasing message...America bad--,sensitive alien,"in touch with its environment", good.You know,it's funny,but I didn't see Barack's name in the credits.Cameron's made a coupla good movies,but he strikes me as pretty hollow,
