    Avatar: “Seeing Is Believing”

     

    Be prepared to be transformed into the movie with its 3D special effects.

    Enter into the mystical ecologically friendly world of Pandora. It is a peaceful fantasy world of the Nav’i, a humanoid race of sexy creatures wearing nothing but loin cloths.

    The movie's storyline is nothing new (and not completely developed).  If you are a student of history, you will recognize common themes of today’s political scene.  Big corporation finding riches in a native land and seek to extract it by force from the indigenous inhabitants of Pandora (think Native Americans or better yet modern day Iraq). But thanks to a rebellious paraplegic, who becomes an avatar, and infiltrates the ways of the Nav’i aliens, he manages to turn the table on big corporation and save the day or the land and race of people.

    Although the beautiful green forest Pandora is somewhat destroyed in the battle against big corporation, in the end the Nav’i aliens are triumphant. Oops! I failed to mention the love interest which develops between the human’s avatar and a Nav’i alien girl.   Of course the boy gets the girl.

    Clocking in at 2 hours and 30 minutes (it could seem longer if you don’t see the 3D version at IMAX) the movie is worth its price and lives up to its cinematography beauty.

    Avatar is directed by James Cameron, who also directed the 1997 blockbuster Titanic.
