well....I finally saw it...not in 3D thank you!!!!
THE GOOD.... it is pretty and very blue....good running story line...first class CGI....state of the art everything!!! the two leads (SAM WORTHINGTON & ZOE SALDANA are believable and have good chemistry!!
THE BAD... too much macho posturing a la STARSHIP TROOPERS (STEPHEN LANG is intense enough for 3+ movies)....an overly simplified picture of "aboriginal" people...CAMERON has developed a meld of AFRICAN & NATIVE AMERICAN cultural societies, but the NAVI are PRETERNATURAL ALIENS and more script work was needed to avoid some banal moments...
THE UGLY.... the 3 "bulging" veins in the right temple of STEPHEN LANG'S "SARG"!!!
is it worth $300,000,000??? uh...no!!! could have been made for 30 million easily!!
is this the future of film??? hopefully not!! I would prefer an old B&W film/story/sound of "BOGIE" from the forties!!!
GIOVANNI RIBISI... How did such an accomplished actor find himself in such a one-dimensional role!!
SIGOURNEY WEAVER...more two-dimensional...barely!!
the ending...sweet, but 100% predictable!!!
AND...if you want to read "GOOD" SCI-FI about "INDIGENOUS ALIENS", start with OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET by C.S. LEWIS (part of his "space trilogy")...
concerning the "noble savage"...read some JEAN JACQUES ROUSSEAU with a repartee by the MARQUIS DE SADE!!!
FINALLY...I doubt if the "KING OF THE WORLD" has read "CIVILIZATION AND IT'S DISCONTENTS" by SIGMUND FREUD....he would have avoided a lot stale. wrmed-over plot devices!!
