Extremely well produced - Avatar review by CP Customer

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

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.

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.
