Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's a remote-control movie experience, a high-tech "wish you were here" scribbled on a very expensive postcard.
Fresh: The narrative would be ho-hum without the spectacle. But what spectacle! Avatar is dizzying, enveloping, vertiginous ... I ran out of adjectives an hour into its 161 minutes.
Fresh: The most-hyped movie of the year just about merits it.
Fresh: Mr. Cameron's singular vision has upped the ante for filmed entertainment, and given us a travelogue unlike any other. I wouldn't want to live on Pandora, mainly because of the bad air, but I'm glad to have paid it a visit.
James Cameron makes a triumphant return to the box office with Avatar. Avatar is the highest-grossing film of all time and it's not a surprise. The film is a futuristic western that showcases the best CG, cinematography, and action that Hollywood has to offer. Although the story is pretty predictable and borrows many elements from Pocahontas, it still manages to keep the audience engrossed in Avatar's spectacular universe. The superlative visuals in this film are absolutely breathtaking. The beautiful creature designs, environments, and action sequences take CG to an entirely new level. James Horner provides a memorable score to accompany this modern masterpiece, but fails to outdo his work on Titanic or Braveheart. Cameron has created a wonderful universe to expand upon in future sequels. Although Avatar is not perfect, it is definitely the best eye candy ever made.
I've been waiting for this
Simply one of the best movies of all time.
This movie is a beautiful film. Its like a very nice painting at the Greatest Art Muesuem in France. However, I want to watch a movie with a creative story and this movie is anything but. If you like visuals, then pay the 15$ and watch it again and again all you want. But if you want to watch a creative movie story wise, look else where
