In the epic action adventure Avatar, James Cameron, the director of Titanic, takes us to a spectacular new world beyond imagination. On the distant moon Pandora, a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of actual production work, Avatar delivers a fully immersible cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.

1. A special edition including 20 minutes of additional footage was released just months after Theatrical Edition. (But fans weren't told until it was too late)
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 now 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, as are most animated movies. Hopefully a 3D Extended Version will be released soon.
Regarding the multiple releases while holding back on the whole package: The studios are becoming so brazen. Offering bare bones Blu Rays shortly before re-releasing the movie with additional footage was a classless act that kicks dirt in the face of fans. I completely understand the business side of the equation. However, I think we would all like to see them release multiple versions and let fans decide how much they need verses how much to spend. At least release a complete package a year or so on. There still isn't an extended 3D version US general release at the time of my update Dec 2014. The first 3D release was just the theatrical edition, even though the extended footage was already available. 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, rather than themselves. We all understand the business side and multiple releases are no surprise. But seriously, this is somewhat an old movie now! Avatar is a particularly egregious example of this practice.
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 now and reviews to all of the versions are linked on Amazon to each release so it's better just to explain what to look for. Other worthy reviews cover both the general plot and the content differences between the standard and extended content. I will leave those aspects to them rather than duplicate it.
This movie is exceptional! I should never have waited so long to review it. The story line flows along at a smooth pace never getting dull or slowing down a bit. It is believable and quite entrancing and kept our interest throughout.
A little about the 3D in this film--
The cinematics are absolutely georgous! The 3D is breathtaking at times. I have watched many movies in 3D as I have a huge collection of 3D titles and this title itself is a masterpiece! The 3D is intense and not 'faked' at all. I have a 65" 3D television that is truely immpressive to watch a good 3D movie on, and a 3D movie that is faked is easy to spot. It helps that this movie was shot in 3D for a theatrical 3D release. There are some that may say this is not a good 3D movie or that it is just a 2D remake, what they might not know is that not all 3D TV's are made the same. Some 3D TV's just don't do very well on some of today's available 3D movies. And then there are some 3D TV's that do an extra good job when displaying 3D as it should be seen. Also I need to point out that this movie is not a remake of a 2D movie. This movie was shot in 3D for a 3D release and theatrical showing, Done using a camera that was specially made for it's filming and was the first 3D film EVER to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
The camera used is called a 'Fusion Camera System' (a.k.a. Reality Camera System 1), it is a Digital movie camera system developed by James Cameron and Vince Pace specifically for Avatar. And that's why the 3D in this movie ROCKS!
Some of the CGI effects used in this movie are truely remarkable and so beautiful. This movie makes a person think 'what could the future hold for us'. It is a fairly believable story line and feels right. The movie does not contain alot of uneccessay blood and gore like some of the recent releases you will find. However, There is a fair amount of violence, but none that you would feel bad for letting the children view. I would have to say that this is a good sit down family movie enjoyable for anyone 10 years old and over. But please be cautioned. there's some strong language in some scenes, so parents should use thier discretion when allowing those under 12 to view.
My recommendation - Get this now, especially in 3D, and ENJOY! ---- We sure did!
