Avatar was indeed a 5-star movie. It had a romance, a plot, incredible special effects — and believability, in a science-fiction sort of way.
I thought it is worth seeing now, as opposed to later via a DVD. The scope of the scenery and the 3D effects were worth the extra expense and hassle of seeing it in a theater.
My favorite part was the texture — rich and deep. James Cameron and his crew lavished massive amounts of attention to detail.
The downside? The battle scenes were too long for my taste. Two hours and 42 minutes cut down to just two hours would have made the movie that much better.
The verdict? Get thee to a theater.
I borrowed the picture came from the film’s website.
