Went to see Avatar this afternoon, and it was great, probably the best movie I have seen in a while. Despite all the hype I went into this movie with no expectations, I just wanted to see a movie. Saw it in 3d and enjoyed that as well. This was my first modern 3d movie. I like how they didn’t go overboard with the ooo look you can touch it 3d effects, the 3d was used more for layering the scenes.
The plot of the movie as most of you know is the humans visiting an alien world and trying to take what they want first by negotiations and then when that fails by force. We get characters that we can care about, a great good guy and a great bad guy. The special effects were top notch. It felt like I was watching a live action animated movie. Everything was blended together well. It never felt like you were watching cgi effects and people on a green screen, everything just worked mixed together. If you have not seen Avatar yet, go see it.
I give Avatar 5 out of 5 Monkeys:
