Your Internet Celebrity Movie Review – Avatar (2009)
Disabled Marine Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) travels to planet Pandora to become an avatar, ingratiate himself with the natives and help Americans mine lucrative unobtainium. But he finds himself in an interstellar conflict after falling for Na’vi warrior Neytiri (Zoe Saldana). James Cameron writes and directs this Golden Globe-winning CGI odyssey that has broken box office records. Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang co-star.
Wow! Normally I don’t like long movies but in this case it was necessary for story development. This belongs on the shelf with other long classic movies like Gone with the Wind, The Godfather 1 and 2 (not part 3) and The Deer Hunter. I really liked the Sigourney Weaver character. It was a cross from Ripley in Alien to Dian Fossey in Gorillas in the Mist. I am easily giving this one 5 stars. I would give it more if I could.
