The year is 2154 and humans are mining for a material called unobtanium on the planet Pandora. The mining and planned expansion threatens the existence of the local people, Na’vi, human-like beings are gigantic and blue, but very human in thoughts, feelings and actions. The film title refers to genetically created beings that are part human part Na’vi and they are used/controlled by a team of researchers to interact with the natives of Pandora. Jake Sully (Terminator Salvation) operates an Avatar in place of his brother and soon becomes close with the Na’vi people, his mission is to make peace with them, little did Jack realize that his feelings and compassion would extend further than he could possibly imagine. Little did he realize he would become one with his…Avatar.
Well there is this little film you may have heard about, by a little move studio you may have heard (20th Century Fox) about by a small-time movie Director (James Cameron) who could use some promotion so I was right there and willing to help with my review! In actuality, Avatar is humungous as you well know, and with very good reason. I’m writing this review for people like me who aren’t so into fantasy and was hesitant to see Avatar myself even though I usually love James Cameron films. From Titanic to True Lies, the Terminator films, Aliens and Abyss I’ve always loved his films.
