Sometimes people overanalyze or critic negatively because of one of the quotes from the films characters Mo’at: “It is hard to fill a cup which is already full.” Viewing this again with another version never persuaded any perceptions of the movie. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paraplegic ex-marine meets Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver). He also talks to Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang), head of RDA's private security force and gives orders for him to follow. This reviewer is viewing the special edition re-release from the 3 disc DVD, which boasts of additional detailed scenes. The innovative Capturing Avatar, and humane A Message from Pandora (where Cameron and his wife meet a real tribe where people will suffer from a creation of a dam), deleted/additional scenes were very insightful and spiffy. From the beginning of the film it featured a descent character build-up, sufficient action and humor. The surprising antagonist who emanated near the conclusion was fresh. Some good lines: Dr. Grace – “The wealth of this world is not on the ground. It’s around us.” “The last thing I need is another trigger-happy moron out there.” Jake – “Sooner or later, though, you always have to wake up.”
Representations of adapting (Jake’s training), gaining trust (with Neytiri), unity, faith (The Tree of voices), identity, love, learning, anti-war, respecting nature and lack of compassion for living things were displayed. Cinematography is spectacular even without assistance of 3D and score grandiose. Not every sci-fi/fantasy movie has these certain elements which makes Avatar impressive, despite its somewhat iffy dialogue. This critic applauds the efforts of the director regarding an indigenous issue (from the touching and sensitive special features) and creating a more personal film, which makes it truly great such in the case of other directors.
Avatar is an extraordinary film where people bash it because of certain reasons be it emulating other flicks or plain hate for the director, in which I guess all boils down to preference. This movie may not be for everyone, but in this case of the person producing this review, it is truly a great film not only because of its impact of 3D cinema and stunning visual effects, but also its underlying message (I guess the film uses “see” a lot, which in most cases works such as people not seeing the truth/inner beauty), wonderful creatures, entertaining battles and beautiful scenery likened to the real tribe in Brazil, and others around the world whose voices cannot be heard because of ignorance and materialism.
