Very good movie with excellent animation and effects. Good plot and story. Well worth staying in and watching.

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

Spoiler Alert

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.

Wasn't Expecting to Like it and Didn't - Avatar review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
03/02/2011

The director is reported as saying that Avatar shares themes with The Emerald Forest, Princess Mononoke, and with Dances With Wolves. For shame: they were well thought out and nicely delivered. All this film has is a superficial plot and pastel-coloured CGI. It is heavy-handed and trite. As for the many creatures, when they're not playing cutey-pie, they're just silly.

Dancing with Smurfs. - Avatar review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
29/08/2010

After all the hype 'Avatar' is a film which I really wanted to like, though sadly I came away a bit underwhelmed. The story shamelessly pinches bits of plotline from other films and the result is a real cliché ridden storyline which is little more than a special effects laden Sci-Fi version of 'Dancing With Wolves' mixed with the ecological theme of 'The Emerald Forest' and jam packed full of plot holes. The story also lacks any subtlety with an ecological message that just bashes you over the head rather than attempting to prick your conscience. Visually it's mixed bag, the CGI of the luminous forest at night was absolutely stunning and there are plenty of 'wow' moments within the film though there is just as much average CGI which often looks like a good quality PS3 cut scenes. Overall, this is a real mishmash of a movie with a paper thin storyline all wrapped up in some pretty CGI, and while it's a film most people will want to see, don't be surprised if you come away feeling a little disappointed.
