Avatar (James Cameron)

Paraplegic Marine Jake Sully goes on a mission to the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions to drive off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake agrees to cooperate with the military unit headed by Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand, and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.

My thoughts on this film: Storywise, it is not my cup of tea. I am not into military and war movies. However, I loved the whole "save the trees and the planet" theme. Meanwhile, I must agree that the real highlights of Avatar were the special effects; Very well done and cool to watch. It really brought the movies into a whole new dimension. Simply amazing!
