I absolutely thought it was excellent, I will definitely see it again.
In this age of Marvel, DC, and other CGI fantasy movies, Avatar: The Way of Water creates a visual experience masterpiece that may never be equaled (until maybe Avatar 3). The 3D brings you, and your emotions, into the Pandora world. This was one movie that delivered entertainment value far exceeding the admission price. Can't wait to see it again.
Haters gonna hate, LOL! There is no reason to give 1 star even if it´s too long for your attention span or if you can´t appreciate the attention to details and the fact the actors went through diving training because the water is not CGI only. Try to guess what is real and what is CGI if you are soooo smart. Of course you are not able to tell, the only thing you can do is to sh*t on everything because people much more talented than you created it. Envy is an ugly thing.
It was the same sort of story of Greedy humans coming back to try to destroy Pandora. How about the humans getting totally destroyed and never coming back and the people of Pandora and Galaxy living in Peace with their neighbors and Nature
It seemed like a compilationof of bits from Star Wars, AquaMan, Tittanicand Avatar 1. Continuity issues -Can they breathe underwater or not? Marine sergeant Dad was pretty goof, but how did his kids get to be such idiots? Warch a trailer before you buy a ticket.
I just simply have no words for what was shown on screen. In fact, I was soooo immersed in the story and characters and the world I have forgot I was watching spectacular special effects. The whole experience left me with a sense of pure "awe."
Watching this, I felt the same kind of awe I felt after watching the first movie and I plan to see it again.
the whole movie great story line
Not much. Puerile, repetitive, lacking in plot or character development, tedious and seemingly never ending. Left the theatre with still a half hour to go. Ridiculous length of over 3 hours.
Interminable and imbecilic.
I loved everything, but the water was awesome, beautiful!
Very good make
Technically excellent, however the plot is just like so many others…. Bad guy wants revenge and kill Father of family, family moves, family gets tracked down, bad guy kidnaps loved ones to draw Father of family out etc. It’s just a “pretty-to-look-at” bad guy out for revenge movie with plot holes.
It gets 2 for visual cinematography but the plot and characters are pure corn. Just a bad screenplay. It’s a family movie/father son movie/mother daughter movie/brother bro /save the whales all in one. It is so bad I think James Cameron lost his objectivity. He even steals the Titanic scenes of capsizing. “Never let go…blue beings. Lacks emotional punch from trying too hard. Not a good movie but at least visuals are unique.
never have so many done so little for so many
It's a LONG movie and I kept waiting for something to happen. Could easily have been trimmed by an hour and a half without losing anything.
It is a very good movie, especially if consider that is part two. And it's doesn't matter that movie is 3 hours long, it won't let you to relax for a bit till the very end. I would highly recommend to watch it. We had a good time.
I like it very much
Loved the cinematography, had great takes on the land and in the water. the movie also has a nice plot bringing your emotions into the mix.
Great movie. Only boring thing is the few boring people who lacked open minds n felt they disliked the movie. Guess there is always a few you can never be pleased.
It doesn´t feel like it´s 3 hours long. There are many new characters who have their own subplots, so the running time is neccessary to flesh them out. The visual effects are on a whole new level compared to other blockbusters.
The build up of excitement was tremendous - the watching of the movie - SUCH A LET DOWN> just too boring.
It was a five star Event Great story line Unbelievable special effects Good acting How they do water scenes Big time sci-fi movie John Cameron Made a masterpiece fun watch And that is my 2nd viewing I was stunned after the first could not believe What my eyes saw
Family scenes are great
Yes, it is long. However, I was shocked that much time had gone by when I looked at my watch. The story is interesting and keeps moving. The artistry is best viewed on the big screen. The Pandora world's bright, gorgeous color is best seen cascading across the theater screen. While the story is interesting, there were parts that were unclear and made a bit of a leap - but, hey, it is fiction. Overall, I enjoyed it very much and was happy to give 3 hours to take a trip to Pandora.
THE MAJORITY RULES -- FIVE STARS --ENJOY!
Avatar 2 makes blockbusters great again!
Been a long time since I left a movie thinking it was worth thew price of admission, this was. Great visuals, great story, even my wife stayed awake until 1am watching in comfy VIP seats. My two girls 24 and 20 loved it as well.
So boring that I fell asleep.
i enjoyed the second installment of James Cameron's Avatar, but i would not bring my grandchildren because the the battle scenes are action packed with violence. Maybe violence is justifiable in today's society, but i am trying to teach my grandchildren to discover creative ideas [or alternatives] within themselves before resorting to violence.
How are the obviously fake one star reviews from the time when this movie wasn´t even out yet still not deleted? It´s a great movie promoting family values, heroism and good relationship to other life forms, like cetaceans. The design of the creatures and visual effects are amazing!
M-shit-U fans are at it again LOL! If it´s not labeled Marvel it just has to be put down because it has so much better CGI/VFX and proves it can be done if actual filmmakers and artists are involved. It has everything the woke crappy movies of todays try to push but fail because they are just propaganda, while Avatar is a movie telling a story in the 1st place, and the themes like prejudice, racism and protection of the nature are a natural part of the story. Pandoran Moby Dick is a badass!
Pocahontas or Dances With Wolves with blue people. Too long, and plodding. The novelty of the first, damaged by a sequel of monetary opportunity. James Cameron should retire before be makes a blue alien on the galactic titanic starship. Wait for it to be released so you can skip past a lot of the scenes. Really slow.
Phenomenal film. James Cameron’s passion and creative energy is on the screen. It’s an achievement for cinema; for sci-fi/fantasy fans; for anyone that dares to dream big! Way to go, Cameron! You did it!
The story line is not good and the character design for human weapon is not good,not fancy enough
Dope plotline, even more insane effects than the first one, and more of Pandora to see!
Really lame movie. An earlier review posted here asked "How can anyone pan this movie??" Gee, it's almost as if humanity doesn't operate as a hive mind and actually have varying opinions about a subjective work! Really, people?!? That's the mentally of audiences for this kind of thing! Sheesh!
This movie is a feast for the eyes, but it should have edited down to 2 hours. This movie suffers from bad editing and at times the plot is incomprehensible and a bit boring. Not a bad movie. Just a movie that everyone could wait and see at home. Not as good as original as most sequels tend to be.
How can anyone pan this movie?? I thought it was visually stunning and had many unique creatures. So what if it didn't have a great story line. My husband and I loved this sequel to the movie. I did not even realize it had been 3 hours long as it kept us so immersed!! It was great to have a movie we both enjoyed!! In fact I would pay to see it again!
Waaay too long. Cameron is still a competent helmer of action scenes but he's never really been good at directing actors and he is horrible at writing dialogue. Many of the lines provoked unintended laughter. Miss it.
I'd give Avatar First movie A+++ this movie B+++- it was just too long and somehow didn't connect with me. It just lacked interest and action - too much focus on Jake's kids and for me - I'll sit Avatar 3 OUT.
I hadn't been to a theater since the last Avatar movie. Looking forward to seeing Avatar 2 on the big screen.
Can't wait. Super stoked to see this masterpiece!!! Was missing Pandora world for 13 years almost every day!
It is it really great to move again to pandora with Jake/Neitiri family
Avatar 2 is one Avatar too many. I'd rather see a sequel to The Abyss.
Loved the movie. Can't wait for part 2, coming December 16th.
They pushed this movie release date back over 5 years, the first one was pleased more than a decade ago and yet I still see this damn thing on the list of "coming soon" movies. Just because this movie has a lot of artistic crap in it doesn't mean it should be a piece of art as in "oh I don't like this lets change this, change that, here comes the due date but its not ready yet, I need more time, let's postpone it another full year" smh really?! I have officially given up being a fan of this movie. Fans can only wait so long before they turn to "yeah it's never going to actually come out, I'm done waiting for it" I'm seriously laying down a money bet here, I'm betting this movie will not see the light of day even after another full century...Prove me wrong James.
Abby was acting zainy. Then she drank caf pow and let gibs kiss her cheek. How do they come up with this stuff?
