Avatar has to be one of the most anticipated films in years, mainly do to the return of James Cameron to cinema. So many people have given this movie negative reviews even before they saw this movie in theaters. This was mainly do to the fact that James Cameron had not made a movie since 1997 Titanic. Just because of that this means he lost his edge. He did bring us ALiens, Terminator, Terminator 2, and True Lies, all great films in their own right. I guess some people feel every director needs one failure in his career. After seeing this film it can’t be Avatar.
Cameron is one of those directors that uses the same stars in most of his films. This I think helps him to make a great film. Just look at how many films Arnold did with him. In this movie he reteams with Sigourney Weaver from Aliens. This time in a supporting role along side Sam Worthington. Worthington is hot his role from Terminator Salvation. So he kinda owes something to the director, since Cameron created the Terminator franchise.THe movie is about a paraplegic who uses the body of an Alien bio created called an Avatar to convince or trick the indigenous people of the planet to relocate or the military will come in and take it from them. I really enjoyed the plot of this movie. I am usually very picky about my sci-fi but this I have to say I gave it a chance and it paid off. Cameron uses something called Fusion Camera System this is a new high def way to shoot 3-d films. He used it in Ghosts of the Abyss. I can’t wait to see Sam Worthington in more films down the road like the upcoming remake of Clash of the Titans. This movie has to be seen in 3-d. I have heard the digital 3-d is not nearly as good as that presented Imax. If you can’t get to an Imax then go see it in 3-d don’t settle for the non 3-d version.
We saw this movie at the Entertainment Cinema in Downtown Leominster Ma. The digital 3-d is superb and you should definitely check it out.
