5.0 out of 5 stars Avatar, October 4, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Avatar (Original Theatrical Edition) (DVD)
Avatar is one of the most creative movies I have ever seen. The real star of this movie is the planet of Pandora, inhabited by fifteen foot tall, blue humanoids and a wonder full array of exotic plants and animals. I think that James Cameron surpasses George Lucas, when it comes to creating an other world environment. The plot is really simple. People of Earth have discovered a rare mineral on Pandora, and they are willing to destroy the natives' land to get it. It reminds one of the westward advance of the Europeans against the native Americans. It is a bit romantic in that Mr. Cameron portrays the native Pandorans as noble savages, while the miners from Earth are totally evil. It is hard to judge the acting performances, because the special and visual effects make it hard to determine what is acting and what is effects. In my opinion Zoe Saldana deserves credit. Behind the cat-like face, the yellow eyes, and the tall, blue body she is somehow able to bring her character to life more effectively than the other Na Vi. I enjoyed seeing Stephen Lang, who portrayed Gen. George Pickett in the movie Gettysburg, in a starring role. Astronomers are saying they have discovered a planet that may have earth like qualities. I for one hope that if we ever get there we will find Pandora.
