Avatar: Review – by R. Brooks

Looks like I had the wrong first impression. via previews of this movie. I thought this was going to be another one of those Star Wars wannabes or a Battlestar Galactica upgrade of some kind. I could not have been more wrong. I don’t know if “epic” would be the proper word here, Avatar was a very powerful film. Not only in it’s visual sense, of course the CGI effects were excellent, but the interaction between the animated characters and the human characters and the two environments was seamless. Once engaged in the story of the struggle between the good guys and the bad guys, the effects are completely forgotten.

One can’t help but notice the relation between the advanced invaders and the so-called savages of the planet Pandora. A throw back to other cultures of our own world? Well, of course, art imitates life. Right? Well, anyway ….

A wonderful film, Avatar is not least of all a great love story that has heart, with soul, with unforgettable characters. You get drawn in until the very end.

One thing I hope, which probably is mute, is that they DO NOT make an “Avatar II”. This seemed to be a total package. Like reading a good book with a great ending. You don’t need another book to screw up the first one. Avatar is one of those films.

Oh yeah, most creative use of alien appendages should be a new category for the Oscars.

If you have not seen Avatar. Go see it. If you wait for the DVD, be sure to buy it or rent it. In other words, this is for sure one movie that is worth a couple of hours of your time.

The PG-13 rating is appropriate due to the violence, no really bad language or nudity.
