    The first is the set-up of characters, with Pandora being a character itself, and it concludes with Jake being allowed into the Na'vi tribe. The second act is Jake's training and eventual acceptance, but it ends with his betrayal and the destruction of the tribe's home. This scene is haunting and full of terrible war-like imagery, although at times I was distracted by the Colonel (Stephen Lang) and thoughts of Wagner playing. These should be actual scrpit.

    What I really liked was that the Na'vi were obviously not native to Pandora.
    I mean, think about it. On earth, all higher life forms share the same general form. Two eyes, four limbs, a tail, skull, ribs, etc.
    On Pandora, it's much the same - six eyes, six limbs, two of those weird nerve-ending headtails. Except for the Na'vi. Added to the fact that Na'vi can dominate other life-forms, are telepathic with a verbal language and are completely humanoid in shape, I can only conclude that the Na'vi are a human experiment to settle Pandora.

    I tried to watch it and fell asleep :\ I don't get what all the fuss is about I really didn't find the world that amazing, the characters were not really interesting at all and because i read the whole pocahontas comparison before..

    Yeah I should watch the full movie and not try do it at 3 am...

    For me the best part of the movie (the half of it i saw); a wheel chair guy gaining the abillity to walk again via an avatar...

    I'm still not impressed.

    It's Dances with Wolves, Pocahontas and stole a bit from Alan Dean Foster's Midworld which would have been awesome if executed properly.

    Lotsa bling, nothing else.

    District 9 had basically the same plot and made much more of it. A story doesn't change if you simply shuffle around the setting, add copious amounts of money or CGI and some "message" that's either so shallow or so obvious they could have spelled it out without wasting a couple of hours of our lives.
    I fealt as cheated after I went to watch Jurassic Park for the CGI(all 9 minutes of it) and had to suffer thru Sam Neill and annoying kids and pseudoscience and not enough Laura Dern. Frankenstein meets Arthur Conan Doyle's Lost World. Somebody had been off his rocker.
    Made millions, too.

    I wasn't impressed by this movie at all. It started out with a bad voice over, and lousy characters, and by one hour into the movie I couldn't take listening to the word "Unobtainium" and had to shut it off. There are so many things wrong with this movie. I just can't believe people made such a big deal over it.

    Good film but over hyped.
    Marking targets, coordinating CC, and *most importantly*, pulling responsibly so that 9 elites didn't rush us and wipe the party, this Is something I have missed since nov 08.
