Summary: The people of Earth travel to planet Pandora so they can take advantage of their natural resources….if you know you’re history that should sound familiar. A paraplegic Marine is recruited because his twin brother died and they can use him for the avatar program. Look, instead of me explaining it just see the damn movie…it’s good.

Plot (B+): Avatar has a great plot and it’s very interesting. However, this movie is similar to Dances With Wolves. With that being said it’s still worth seeing.

Action (A): The majority of the movie is CGI obviously, but it still has great action scenes. Most theaters have released it in 3D and 3D IMAX which is great. The culminating action sequence is very good.

Acting & Dialogue (A-): For a movie that is mainly CGI, the acting and dialogue is very good. I wish I could say the same thing for the last three Star Wars…such a shame. Things are spelled out for you clearly and you will leave the theater satisfied.

Sex Appeal (N/A): You’re sick in the head if you get off on watching blue creatures have sex…unless it’s a porn knock off from Vivid, then you’re sane as can be.

Director (A): James Cameron has the Midas touch. In the words of Vince Vaughn in Swingers he’s “Money.” He has continuously created strong storylines combined with great action and a staggering box office numbers. He’s on track to beating Titanic which grossed around 1.8 billion dollars. Nice job James. With all this money coming in hopefully he can get a haircut.

Overall: A


  1. You failed to mention the excess 20 - 30 mins of battle scene footage that had me checking and rechecking the time on my phone and swirming in my seat! Ughhhh total overkill!

  2. it sends wrong messages on many levels bec this movie does not say much about the future or past;also too many jumps between the blue creatures and humans,creepy/

  3. 1. My wife said the same thing about the movie being too long towards the end. However, I'm a guy and there's no such thing as too long of a battle scene.

    2. I wouldn't say it sends the wrong message but you're definitely correct that Cameron barely mentioned much the future or past.

  4. So what if I got turned on watching the blue people go at it . . . you are hot pregnant women, perv

  5. I was on the fence about seein this movie- I heard it was a whole lot of hoopla; but after your review, I think I'll go see it. Thank you Movie Titan. :)
