Other than being a bit predictable in the plot department, an absolutely awesome flick ... strongly recommended.

The message behind the story is certainly nothing new but it was told very very well (IMO) and I didn't find it "stale" during the presentation.

Technically speaking, it is a masterpiece. Cameron "pulled it off" on all fronts ... cinematography, Sound and 3D factor. It was a 3D movie that showed off the 3D factor without (for the most part) the usual cheap 3D thrill tricks. For the majority of the film, the 3D effect gave the screen "depth" rather than just a bunch of things popping out of the screen at you.

Picture and Sound quality were excellent as one would expect from any IMAX film. It was almost 3 hrs long and at the end, I didn't have the usual "3D-movie-headache" as per previous 3D films...that says a lot.

Bottom line, it is not breaking any new ground with the story/plot but no major faux pas either (although "Un-obtainium" came pretty close - I am sure that someone involved in a movie of this magnitude could have come up with a better name than that!) ... and ya can't beat the technology behind the scenes!
