      I love this film.

      I had heard a few grumbles about the ‘lack of plot’ and that watching 3D was tiring and made some people feel sick, and that the effects ruled the film and became too much.

      Stuff and nonsense.

      First of all, yes - the 3D glasses are not the most comfortable, and you certainly won’t win any style awards wearing them. But they work, oh yes they work. I made conscious efforts to take the glasses off occasionally and watch certain scenes in 2D - now THAT was tiring and caused real eye-strain. It proves that even the most simple scenes such as new recruits on a carrier are


      filmed in 3D so that the perspective is totally convincing. I most certainly didn’t feel sick. Yes, some of the action scenes are hard to follow, but I felt fine, strictly no nausea.

      As to the complaints about the lack of plot. I think there are a few hardened cynics out there. Anyone who has watched a James Cameron film before knows that the film itself is often a vehicle for a more simple and true love story. This film is no exception. It’s a rather complex love story. Our invader from Earth, a parapalegic marine, falls for a Na’vi on the alien planet of Pandora, whilst running around in a ...


      • humanoid-Na’vi suit linked through mind control. There are only a few things preventing them from being together: The prejudice of both their Species, the planned mining and destruction of habitats on Pandora, the small issue that our hero is infact an Avatar and his human body may be unplugged, or killed at any time. Ah. Oops.

        Seriously, what more would you WANT to cram into the story? Well just incase, there is the idea of a single living consciousness that links all organisms on Pandora - a spiritual, mother earth entity. Or merely the idea that other Species would be far more attuned to their environment than over-evolved humans could

        understand.

        Add to that second main ingredient of a James Cameron film: Strong, inspiring female characters. The Na’Vi Niteryi is beautiful, skilled, principled, passionate and compassionate. She is brilliantly visioned. There is the scientist Grace, intelligent, passionate and compassionate, and determined. And finally our marine pilot Trudy, driven, skilled, stubborn and fierce. Inspirational characters and more than a match for the male characters.

        The finally important ingredient in a good James Cameron film is of course the effects. They are simply stunning. Incredibly creative, the scapes were magical, the creatures fantastical. And no, the special effects did not rule the film, the plot leads the film.

        So what are you waiting for? Go see it!
