The most technically amazing motion picture to have arrived on screens in many years, Avatar is entertainment of the highest order. Traditional film elements - story, script, character, editing, theme, emotional resonance - are presented with sufficient expertise to make it an engrossing 2 1/2-hour experience. As a science fiction version of Dances with Wolves, it also borrows a space/military culture reminiscent of that in Aliens and the cross-cultural romance of Titanic within one of the most amazing, sumptuous presentations ever of an alien world, and builds toward an epic clash. Thoroughly engaging and enthralling.
Vividly blending shock and suspense, jolting out of the blue with random doors that open on their own, or frying pans that drop out of a hanger, knowing only it's an invisible demon, this is a geniune revisitation of the original Paranormal Activity, a deceptively spooky set of jumps in fear as goings-on grow ever more freaky with things going bump-in-the-night.
Compelling performances and beautifully told heroics, it should not be missed. This is a true story of a faction of the French Resistance comprised of immigrants who came to France before the war, who had to fight not only the Nazi forces but their own people. The title comes from the term used to label the fighters. This is a passionate remembrance.
Not an educated, accurate retelling of the Greek myth, but a fast-paced fantasy adventure that never takes itself too seriously, along with a generous amount of truly marvellous computer-generated imagery: an enormous, tentacled turtle monster that trashes a city, a giant scorpion attack that is both furious and fun; Medusa is creepy and quite dexterous, the Titans' chambers are a sight to behold, and the dreaded Kraken is a nightmare of terrifying proportions.
