James Cameron’s decade-in-the-making sci-fi dream project Avatar is not only a groundbreaking film it’s also the definitive cinematic event of this generation.With Avatar, director James Cameron doesn’t just deliver solid fan-boy entertainment, he pushes the boundaries of technology in a manner that seems to bridge the gap between imagination and the practical limitations of the day. You may argue that you’ve seen better films than Avatar recently, but try remembering the last time you enjoyed the movie-going experience so much.I’m going with an unprecedented five out of five and two big thumbs up for James Cameron’s Avatar. Watch it in glorious 3D; that’s how he intended for it to be seen. It’s films like this that make going to the cinema an out-of-the-world experience.

And we thought sinking the Titanic was a titan task! Well, this time round, James Cameron chooses to play god and creates a whole new world with such exquisite finesse, aesthete and eye for detail, he almost takes your breath away. In terms of sheer technology, Avatar marks the coming of age of both CGI and 3-D cinema with its art house special effects and its shock and awe treatment. Avatar is indeed a complete cinematic experience with cinematographer Mauro Fiore, music director James Horner and special effects maestro Joe Letteri joining hands with director/screenwriter James Cameron to create a strong and visually-stirring plea to save the world, before it is too late. And the only way the human species can do it is by abdicating its destructive tendencies.

This much I can say: Avatar is a tremendously entertaining film. It is a huge WOW and an amazing display of high technology, although once again overriding the drama and the script. It is a sensory, emotional feeling — the experience of being inside and participating in a two and a half hour long video game, with tall blue aliens called the Na’vi, creepy lizard like flying creatures that can be tamed, other scary monsters, lush plant life, big huge ‘shock and awe’ like war sequences between the natives using bows and arrow and evil Earthlings, motivated by profit, and then also some nice tender romantic moments. Avatar has once again compelled me to revise my perspective of what cinema and technology can do.

Avatar begins well but goofs up as it progresses. The story which seems promising initially starts faltering the moment Cameron shows Jake fall in love with a Na’vi woman. Avatar begins well, drags tremendously in between and then picks up on its pace towards the climax, but its too late by then. The film is a visual delight, but lacks an original plot. This visual treat doesn’t make up for the weak storyline. The infusion of human trauma in an idyllic fantasy setting doesn’t seem to be a good idea! Avatar loses direction somewhere along the way, and its huge length plays spoil sport too. Performances are decent, but not outstanding. Unfortunately, so is the film! However, ‘decent’ is not what one expects from a James Cameron.

The movie sincerely needs to be reviewed at two levels. One at the technological marvel that it creates, and the other at its sub-par story line, which though decent, brings down the overall film’s quality.To come back to the special effects of the movie, there are simply so many moments that will leave the viewer spellbound with its detailing. Perhaps the most being the avatars and the Na’vis themselves.It is not like some banal machine turning into a robot, ala Transformers. Cameron sure knows how to harness technology for story-telling. And though the story is not as original as Terminator 2 or as heart-warming as Titanic, it sure is thrilling.
