Avatar Review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by: James Cameron
Genre: Sci-Fi, Action Adventure
Release Date: December 18, 2009 (2009-12-18)
Running Time: 162 minutes
MMPA rating: PG-13

The Good: Amazing CGI(Computer-generated imagery) characters looked like they were real and the facial expressions were very well done, Pandora(name of the planet) looked incredible,

The Bad: Way too munch tree hugger save the planet junk, Not original, Stole plot from "Dance With Wolves" and many other Native America movies, Predictable,

Plot: In 2148, the Earth's natural resources have been severely depleted(which is a bunch of bull). A starship named the Venture Star leaves Earth bound for a journey into deep space, with a crew of cryogenic men on board. 6 years later, in 2154, the RDA Corporation is mining a valuable mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush, Earth-like habitable moon orbiting the gas giant Polyphemus located in the Alpha Centauri star system. Pandora, whose atmosphere is poisonous to humans, is inhabited by the Na'vi, 10-foot (3.0 m)-tall, blue-skinned, sapient humanoids who live in harmony with nature and worship a mother goddess called Eywa.
To learn about the Na'vi and Pandora's biosphere, scientists use Na'vi-human hybrid bodies called avatars that are operated via mental link by genetically matched humans. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paraplegic former marine, replaces his twin brother, a scientist trained as an avatar operator who was murdered in a robbery. Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver), head of the Avatar Program, considers Sully an inadequate replacement and assigns him as a bodyguard. While protecting the avatars of Grace and scientist Norm Spellman (Joel David Moore) on their expedition to collect biological samples and data in the forest, Jake's avatar is attacked by a jungle predator thanator. Fleeing for his life, Jake strays from the rest of the group and gets lost in the forest. Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), a female Na'vi, stumbles upon Jake and reluctantly rescues him from Pandora's wildlife. Seeing portents from Eywa, she takes him to her clan's dwelling, Hometree; there, Jake meets Neytiri's father, clan chief Eytukan (Wes Studi). Neytiri's mother Mo'at (C. C. H. Pounder), the clan's spiritual leader, orders her daughter to teach the "warrior dreamwalker" their ways.
The head of Sec-Ops, the RDA's private security force, Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang), promises Jake that the company will help him walk again if he gathers intelligence about the Na'vi.[ Hometree is on top of the richest deposits of unobtanium for hundreds of miles. When Grace learns that Jake is passing information to Quaritch, she relocates herself, Jake, and Norm to a remote outpost. Over three months, Jake grows close to Neytiri and her people. Watch the movie to what happens next.

Plot: 6.4/10- The plot is not original. It stole parts from movies like "Dances With Wolves" and other good movies, but made it much worse.

Action: 7.8/10- There one large fight scene at the end of the movie that was good.

Acting: 8.1/10- Stephen Lang had the best performance as the tough guy commander and, Worthington and Zoe Saldana's performances as the Na'vi(aliens) looked just like real people acting.

Special effects: 10/10- Special effects is were Avatar is at its best with visually stunning CGI characters and everything. It looked amazing.

Soundtrack: 7.0/10- The soundtrack worked for the movie but not great.

Comedy: N/A

Overall: 7.6/10- Avatar score would score a 6.2/10 without the special effects but it is a movie that you need to see, if only you the effects.

Closing comments: Avatar is an amazing looking movie that is worth watching just to see the special effects.

Recommended for: Sci-Fi fans, Anyone, Tree huggers


  1. I'd rate the animation of this movie a 10 but the story and overall movie a 4. It was way too predictable and reminded me of the Disney movie, Pocahontas.

  2. 10 out of 10. storyline is about learning a new way of life and what's best for others. i love this movie. this is nothing compared to disney. can't wait for teh sequals. :)

  3. Good opinion, but I think AVATAR is the best movie by Director James Cameron and I really loved it in 3D.
