James Cameron's latest epic (and his first feature since Titanic) is set in the future on a distant moon. With a plotline paying homage to Pocohantas and Dances With Wolves, our hero is an ex-marine, paralysed from the waist down. He is sent to Pandora in the hope of being cured. Once there, he learns his true mission: to scout out the moon for exploitable resources. Since humans cannot breathe the atmosphere, he controls a genetically-created hybrid of half-human, half-Pandoran, called an avatar. This avatar meets a local princess and falls in love with her, giving our hero split loyalties to his own kind, and his new love. This becomes a problem as conflict between the humans and Pandorans escalates. This film is releasing on both 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version.

Tomatometer quote iconIt might be more impressive on a technical level than as a piece of storytelling, but Avatar reaffirms James Cameron's singular gift for imaginative, absorbing filmmaking.
