Avatar Movie Review: Best Review IMDB

Avatar Movie Review: According to Mayur Sanap, Avatar: The Way of Water is like a gift that was ill-chosen; it may be beautifully wrapped, but what’s within is disappointing. Numerous popular movie series have come and gone, but few have achieved the level of international popularity that James Cameron’s record-breaking fantasy epic Avatar has.

When the writer-director first presented us with the imaginary planet of Pandora in 2009, we fell in love with its native Na’vi people.

If you enjoy watching movies, you already know that an Avatar movie is an experience.

13 years have passed since the master of cinema started the current global craze.

Reentering James Cameron’s Avatar world and running into some of your favorite characters gives you a rush.

It seems sensible that, as it finally arrives during the holiday season, anticipation for the long-awaited sequel has reached fever pitch and beyond.

Unfortunately, Avatar: The Way of Water, a recent movie, falls short of the drooling expectations of what it may have become.

The new character expands the Avatar cinematic universe a little, but not significantly.

This time, the plot is more personal and smaller in scope.

A few years after the events of the first movie, human-turned-Na’vi warrior Jake Sully (played by an interminably bored Sam Worthington) married Zoe Saldana’s character Neytiri and had a family. He has also taken control of her Omaticaya clan.

They have four children: an inquisitive adopted daughter named Kiri, a devoted oldest son named Neteyam (Jamie Flatters), a tenacious younger son named Lo’ak (Britain Dalton), and a young girl named Tuk (Trinity Bliss) (Sigourney Weaver in a surprise turn).

When they are forced into exile because the human military is returning to Pandora for more chaos, their lives are thrown into chaos.

The Sully family travels around all of Pandora before settling up with the Metkayina, a clan of Na’vi that live in the water.

But Colonel Quaritch’s furious avatar form (Stephen Lang) and the military bad guys are pursuing Jake, and he must defend his family from the looming threat.

With The Way of Water, Cameron has once more realised the expansive scope of his vision.

There is no denying that the movie is a masterpiece of visual art.

It is striking how evocative the scenery on exhibit is.

Amazing undersea scenes can be found.

The surreal images of sea life, talks held underwater, camera angles, combat sequences, and choice of locations are all intended to inspire amazement and astonishment.

How the characters were created using a combination of motion-capture technology and CGI is astounding. And it proves once more how attractive they are!

They don’t need to say much when they talk, yet it’s still the most subtle the movie gets.

The expressions recorded are perfectly expressive, regardless of how little is spoken or done (even just a glance or a gesture).

The 3D shots are not as overt as they are in some of the other movies.

The majority of modern films do not benefit from the usage of 3D since it does not improve the experience of watching a film; rather, it detracts from it.

But this expertly supports such scenes.

The 3D greatly aids in the Avatar world’s goal of letting you lose yourself in it.

Russell Carpenter’s skilled camerawork gives the plot the scope it deserves, further enhancing the visual language of the movie.

The sweeping camera motions nicely complement the outstanding artwork and design of this production, which has a really distinctive appearance.

But once you get past all the flash and fanfare, this Avatar feels fairly ordinary.

While we admire the magician-caliber abilities of the technicians in action, we may feel emotionally cut off from the narrative.

The Sully family spends a lot of time in the film going through exposition, bonding, fitting in, learning aquatic ways, insecurities, and distress, but the relationship between them and the audience never really develops.

It just serves to emphasize the protagonist’s status as a family man who adores his children on an almost constant basis.

Avatar Movie Review: Best Review IMDB

The characters are developed and their motivations are explained in the screenplay by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Cameron over the course of several chapters. Some characters are developed more thoroughly than others.

Although the new characters are introduced properly, the weak screenplay mostly undermines them. The ties between any of them are not further explored, and this is especially true of the characters of the children, whose relationships lack the necessary complexity and depth.

The tale feels pointlessly drawn out and frequently boring, and it has a duration that is longer than three hours.

Without much compelling plot development, the narrative structure is based on a simple good vs. evil prototype.

Just as little narrative sense is made by Quaritch creating a backup copy of himself in case he passes away.

Additionally, the Na’vis achieved nothing while humans had years to perfect their battle strategies, yet the authors give them the impression that they are in the lead thanks to their primitive weapons.

The most perplexing aspect of the plot is Jake’s choice to break away from his clan of forest dwellers in order to protect his family and himself because you are left wondering how hiding would be possible.

This movie isn’t about shocks and turns.

The effect is that the story isn’t really innovative either.

Quite early on, you can probably predict the direction the movie will go.

The main people, their surroundings, the high-tech apparatus, and so on are the subject of protracted scenes that don’t offer much in the way of a payoff because Cameron is too engrossed in his enthusiasm for producing a visual experience.

For the conservation of marine animals, a topic Cameron is deeply committed to, there is even a significant plug in the movie.

One finds themselves hoping for humanity’s destruction because of this meta-environmental message.

With little character development or insight into the minds of its characters—particularly Jake Sully, who keeps a cool distance from the audience—the movie seems to be merely going through the motions.

That makes it challenging to support him or have genuine compassion for him.

Despite a few situations that aim to be tragic but end up being awkward, there simply isn’t enough of a window into his heart, mind, and soul in this movie as opposed to the first one.

The writing also lacks the predecessor’s clever simplicity and nuance and instead resorts to clichés.

The process is hampered by a severe lack of tension and emotional core.

Too many scenes drag, particularly during the first 90 minutes, because there is nothing significant to move the plot ahead.

The movie struggles to maintain the drawn-out running length until it finally shifts into high gear, which briefly makes the action-packed climax entertaining.

It is then more taxing than amazing.

This movie is a wonderful sensory treat if you like artistic filmmaking and are prepared to take some time away from your daily problems.

It would be best to view everything in IMAX on a large screen.

It’s really unfortunate that crucial plot details, character development, and an emotional conclusion were lost in translation, leaving the entire experience hollow.


Avatar: The Way of Water feels, in the end, like an ill-chosen gift; the package is lovely, but the present is a letdown. That is not the proper course of action.
