Didn't expect to like it. Loved it. - Avatar review by SA

Spoiler Alert
17/01/2011

Not normally my dizzle, special fx-laden cartoon fests, aliens etc. I saw it in 3D at Glasgow Imax and was thrilled. My brain told me it was just a classic story (has elements of Pocahontas) dressed up for a generation that can't watch anything without CGI, but I was completely immersed in the film (the Imax format did help in this regard). Came out of the cinema feeling genuinely wowed. And the story is just a classic plot, moved to a different setting, so I'd say the criticism of a noddy plot is somewhat unfair. Good fun.

Stupid, offensive, boring trash - Avatar review by PV

Spoiler Alert
06/05/2010

Offensive, smug, boring, pseudo-religious, environmentalist, green-wash trash from a director seemingly enthralled by a bizarre snese of American environmental superiority - when in fact the USA is the least environmentally friendly country on earth.

Funny though: I never realised blue people on a distant planet could look like African Americans or have perfect teeth.

Stoopid and offensive - and proof, if any were needed, that money will buy you Oscar nominations.

This movie is the definition of dumb.

Nice effects... Simplistic message - Avatar review by Mehitabel

Spoiler Alert
07/02/2012

Admittedly I don't have sophisticated tastes or any knowledge of animation techniques, but I found the animations impressive. The fairytale forest was very pretty indeed and it was clever that the avatars looked like their "drivers", but in no very obvious way.

And better a grindingly obvious eco-message than no eco-message at all, I suppose.

But I found the central assumption cancelled out the environental message: Namely, that violence is the solution to everything, and war is Good, provided you are In The Right. It would have been very much more interesting and profound had the Na'vi triumphed without grabbing guns and blasting the earthlings out of the sky..

In the event, though, "Avatar" is just another war movie.. Just with goodies who are very tall..and blue.
