Highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great 3D movie to watch in your own home.

There are a lot of people like myself who just want to watch a great movie and DON'T want a bunch of extras that we will never watch and don't care about.
A. Prichep
Plus, I've already seen the original theatrical release on Blu-Ray and the video and audio quality of the DVD version is very noticeably downgraded.

I'm primarily interested in the storyline differences between special sets and their theatrical counterparts, so here are the differences between the two (NOTE: SPOILERS FOLLOW).

The extended collector's edition runs 16 minutes 28 seconds longer than the theatrical cut, and listed below are the major differences.

1) The opening scene is different, and starts with Jake in a wheelchair on Earth, in a Blade Runner-esque Earth city. The scene moves to scenes of Jake in his apartment, then taking liquid shots in a bar. Jake's narration of "I told myself I can pass any test a man can pass" and "They can fix the spinal if you got the money. But not on vet benefits, not in this economy" are inserted during this new opening scene.

Jake beats up a bar patron who is mistreating a woman, and then Jake and wheelchair are unceremoniously thrown outside by bouncers into an alley. While in the alley, Jake meets the two RDA representatives who bring him news of his brother's untimely death. Then the movie cuts back to the original theatrical cut where Jake sees his brother's body cremated, then awakes in space.

2) During Jake's initial flyover of Pandora in his avatar, they witness a herd of Sturmbeasts, buffalo-like creatures.

3) After seeing the Sturmbeasts, Grace, Jake, and Norm stop by Grace's old English school for the Na'vi. The school is now closed, abandoned, and some walls are riddled with bullet-holes. Norm finds a Dr. Seuss book, "The Lorax", on the ground. This scene explains how Neytiri knew English so well, and certainly gives some further backstory into Grace Augustine's character.

Interestingly, The Lorax can be seen as a metaphor for the Pandoran story.

I got this as soon as I found it available on the net. It will not be available commercially for some time and that, of course, means the price is WAY to high for most viewers. I was willing to be taken for a ride but if you do not just have to have it now I would recommend waiting until it is available everywhere.
The video quality is fantastic. I have a Samsung 40" 3D setup and the movie was just beautiful to watch. Not quite the same as IMAX but very close (size of screen being the only difference that I could see). The 3D is, to my eyes, exactly as good as the IMAX on-screen version. I am a huge fan of the movie but believe me I would tell you if the video quality was not great.
I would not hesitate to do the purchase again (even considering the huge rip-off in price at this time) but advise others to consider if you really have to have it right now or can wait awhile.
Great movie, almost unbelievable video transfer quality, and a price that is just not right!
Hope this helps.

There are many low score reviews purely based on the fact there was a release of this movie earlier this year and now the extended version comes out feels like a marketing game. When the first release happened it was known an extended version was coming, but some people just had to have it now. I just watched it on Netflix and waited for the extended version. I agree if you bought the first release version you have little real reason to buy the extended version, unless you love this movie and want the bonus features.

Some of the other low scores talk about the 3D version coming, but that is weak reason for most people because most do not own and will not own a 3D TV set. If you do your research on 3D TVs you will find they clunky and costly. Unless you are among the few who have a 3D TV, then there is no reason to wait to buy this release of Avatar if you enjoyed the movie.

For the few who have never seen the movie, the key factors to consider is if you are a science fiction fan, enjoy action movies, and if you consider yourself picky about dialog/originality, Avatar breaks no new ground when it comes to story, but it does take many of successful elements from other stories and rolls it into this one. The bashing on acting is overkill. In general they did a fine job, not exceptional, but anyone who loves science fiction will find the acting a step above the normal for this type of movie. The dialog is nothing special. There are mostly cliche characters and situations. The key is the entire package is very well done. No movie is perfect and as much as some people bash this, just look at the box office sales. Bad movies would have never set top sales records no matter how much marketing was behind it.

***THINGS YOU MUST KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY***

1. A special edition including 20 minutes of additional footage long since released.
2. No special features in 2 disc Theatrical Edition. If you are a fan, of all the discs in your collection this is the one you really want the extra stuff.
3. 3D version also available, though not in the extended version yet. This movie is considered a reference disc in 3D and the extensive CGI use makes it a great story to be seen in that medium, similar to most animated movies. Hopefully a 3D Extended Version will be released soon.

I have to echo the comments of a previous reviewer. The studios are becoming so brazen. They released this edition and tried to explain the poor accoutrements by saying "they wanted to save all the space on the disc for the best possible presentation". Really? Bust out the extra discs already! Offering this bare bones Blu Ray shortly before re-releasing the movie with additional footage was a classless act that spits in the face of consumer. The first 3D release was also just the theatrical edition, despite the extended footage already being released. It's like pulling teeth to get these studios to release everything fans want in a single package even down the road. After all the releases we have had, they really owe it to fans to do something for us for once, rather than themselves. We all understand the business side and multiple releases are no surprise. But seriously!

If 3D doesn't interest you regardless, then you are set with the Avatar Special Edition. That is the one I recommend until the 3D Extended Edition comes out. I originally wrote this article as a one star protest review, but there are so many versions of the movie out with all reviews on Amazon linked to each other that it just doesn't help. Other worthy reviews cover both the plot and the differences between the standard and extended content. I will leave those aspects to them rather than repeat.

Avatar Blu-Ray problem
What model of Blu-Ray player do you have? Amazon states in the intro to the two-disc (Blu-ray/Standard) set that some older players "might" require a firmware update. They do post links but they're not that helpful. If that doesn't resolve the problem, I'd suggest posting the question... Read More

Old story
The soldiers in the movie were not official military. They were previous military but in the movie were employed by the company. That makes them mercenaries, an important distinction.

Your thoughts on Avatar and Avatars storyline
Its Camerons beliefs and principles (as well as his considerable fimmaking talents)that should be admired as he stands up for what is right. Its a trait that some seem to envy since they have no morals themselves and feel inferior to him (which they should).
