Avatar in 3D

Tom saw this when it came out and dragged me to it a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. The visuals in this movie are stunning. I think the ONLY way to see this particular movie is in 3D.

The problem, for me, is the plot. It’s been done before and is pretty predictable. It’s two hours and forty-five minutes that could have been easily an hour and twenty minutes. There are a few points that drag a bit, but it is pulled off by the visual effects.

I just don’t know that the plot can support a long movie like this without the beauty that 3D brought to the film.

Stunningly beautiful and for that, I give it 5 stars. But without the 3D, this would have been a 3 for being too long.

AVATAR takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. James Cameron, the Oscar-winning director of “Titanic,” first conceived the film 15 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not exist yet. Now, after four years of production, AVATAR, a live action film with a new generation of special effects, delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.

    I LOVED Avatar! The concept of trees behind the world together was very beautiful to me.
