Humans go on Pandora and try to conquer it. They infiltrate the Na’vi by making clones of the Na’vi. The clones report back to the humans. A clone falls in love with the Na’vi and decides to fight the humans by gathering all the tribes on the planet. The humans and Na’vi fight, and the Na’vi’s win. This movie is requires a lot of patience because it is quite long. Therefore, you have to bring a lot of popcorn.
Jake Sully is a crippled human who went to Pandora to replace his dead brother. When he arrives on Pandora, he enters the science division, and gains an avatar. The avatar is a copy of the Na’vi, which are a tribe of giant, blue, humanoid lemurs. He infiltrates the Na’vi’s clan to gather information on how to destroy their shelter. Jake learns the culture of the Na’vis and falls in love with the girl who taught him. He rebels against the humans and goes to war with them. He gathers all the tribes of Pandora and they fight an epic battle. At the end, Jake has to fight his ex-boss. He wins and is about to die, but the girl he loves saves him from death. He becomes the new leader of the Na’vi.
The weakness is that it’s a common plot. The hero falls in love but isn’t allowed to stay with the Na’vi. He rebels against his own kind so he can fight for himself and the things he loves. In the end, he wins, as expected.
The strength was that the graphics and special effects were awesome. It was in 3D. The creatures in the movie were very well thought out. The planet had a lot of different environments, such as giant trees, and floating mountains.
I think the people who would like the movie avatar are people who like imaginary creatures, like dragons. Other people that like it are environmentalists, because the Na’vis are always “communicating” with nature. The other people who would like it are people who like having bullets and arrows fly into your face, because of the 3D.
