“Avatar” in 3D Review
This past Friday night, George and I were able to have a babysitter watch the boys so that we could go to the movies. George has been wanting to see the movie, “Avatar” in 3D, for a long time. Fortunately, it was still available at AMC in Seattle. Let me tell you…..it was SO GOOD!!! The movie was 2 hours and 40 minutes long and I was worried it was going to be long (like Gone With the Wind long). Not at all! It was an amazing movie and one we will definitely own on DVD when it comes out!
I loved the transitions between real life and the computer animation. Wow! There was action and some comedy. The movie was really well done. Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and the entire cast did an amazing job and I think they are all deserving of awards! The computer animation was amazing and so life-like! I give this movie 5 out of 5. If you have the opportunity, be sure you see it in the theaters while you can!
Here is a summary from IMDB:
In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na’vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture. Written by Giorgio_C
When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge’s intentions of driving off the native humanoid “Na’vi” in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na’vi people with the use of an “avatar” identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand – and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.
“Avatar” was released in December by Twentieth Century Fox and is rated PG-13.
