I was one of the few lucky ones who got to see a preview show of Avatar a few days before it was released. I liked the movie for the world (Pandora) that has been created and the amazing 3D. But the story lacked depth, and the love angle did not come through strongly. Nevertheless, it is movie which is to be seen – just to show that the impossible can become possible.
A few years ago, it would have been hard to imagine such a movie – for its scale, the detail and imagination in it, and the sheer audacity of the project. James Cameron has shown what vision and will (and of course money) can do.
