Review: Avatar

Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people.

So much build up to this movie, all I knew that I was curious to see what the hype was all about, the trailers don’t tell you much at all. We didn’t watch it in 3-D because those glasses give me a headache so we went to watch the normal movie, when booking online on ReelCinenma in Dubai Mall every theater was packed, we went for a late night movie. From the start of the movie the graphics were fantastic, better then I even imagined but that was just beginning. Jake Sully is the first marine to control the Avatars, a biological combination of human DNA and the indigenous creatures of the planet. Jumping into the planet of Pandora there is so much to see, so many different creatures, an amazing flow of scene after scene, you are mesmerized by it. For 162 minutes of the movie my eyes were stuck to the screen for the graphics isn’t the only thing that holds your attention, the depth of the story pulls you in, at every point you are surprised my something new, the story keeps developing, so many peaks that you are kept at full attention. This story must have took a long time to develop, there is so much to it, the language development, the creatures, all the scenes, and a great combination of actors, a perfect fit. My expectations were blown out of the water, and this is a movie that everyone should see.

  1. I’m still waiting for the IMAX 3-D here in Kuwait

  2. Looks beautiful. I’ll watch it if I get the chance. lol I remember getting a headache too in Disneyland from those 3D glasses.

  3. The glasses are better than they used to be. I recently watched A Christmas Carol in 360 (Great)… The thing is, Avatar is not available on the 3D screen for some reason. I don’t want to watch it on anything else!

    I watched it yesterday in 2D and its was stunning to say the least

    if it comes out in 3D in kuwait then i’ll definitely go again because this is one of those extreme rare films that you’d want to see several times for the escapism

  5. you guys have to watch it in 3D!!!!!

    Some geeky facts: The creation of Pandora required over a petabyte (1m gigabytes) of digital storage. By comparison, it took 2,000 gigabytes to create and sink the Titanic – about 1/500th of the amount used for Avatar.

    Can`t believe I haven`t seen this yet.

  7. It actually took him 2 weeks to write the story in 1994!
