Movie Review | Avatar
Avatar is a fast-paced action/adventure/sci-fi movie. The main character is Jake Sully, an ex-marine who is paralyzed from the waist down. He is called on a mission to the planet of Pandora to replace his twin brother. His consciousness is transferred to his brother’s avatar after which he is tasked with gaining the trust of the indigenous Na’vi. Jake is trained to become one of the people by Neytiri, daughter of the tribe leader. As time goes on, Jake falls in love with the people, the planet, and Neytiri, and must decide if he will support the human soldiers who represent his old life, or his new people.
Personally, Avatar is one of my favorite movies. There is a mix of action, adventure, and romance in this movie which tie wonderfully into a very important plot and message. The movie is very relatable to real-world issues including the greed of man, and the importance of gaining respect for the world and for people everywhere. The filmmakers do an absolutely incredible job at creating the planet Pandora and created breathtaking scenery in which the film takes place. This was not the first time that I watched this movie, and it will certainly not be my last. I would recommend this movie to anyone.
