    This is one of those movies that I really love. I know a lot of people are complaining about the story's lack of originality but I liked the story. Of course the basic conflict is not new but that's true for lots of movies which were not so strongly criticized for this. I think there's a lot of truth in the story (still, no matter how often such stories are told) and the cast is great, even the smaller roles.

    The visual impression was vast of course, I completely got lost in that colorful world and I very much appreciated the Performance Capturing for the Na'vi. There were colors, action, emotions and more - I did like the story and the movie as a whole and I hope the sequels are gonna be anywhere near that good.

    i cut this movie some slack.

    avatars story is not a great story, nor is it intriguing. but the visuals are beautiful to witness and offer some intrigue of their own, and the pacing is near perfect, not to mention that i've always been a fan of that calm before the massive storm plot device most often found in epics.

    all the characters are rem'arkably forgettable, besides sigourney weavers well acted character who had a strange amount of impressive and some-what out of place development.
    if visuals aren't your thing, then look elsewhere. but if you can look past this and enjoy avatar for the simple, epic blockbuster that it is, then you should definitely consider watching.
    it is undeniably fun to watch. 6/10
