I respect the ambition of James Cameron and his plan for his Avatar sequels so I figured I should finally see the first one. It’s okay. I suppose I am losing something by watching it on a tiny computer screen without the 3-D effects. There’s just something corny and uninspired about the character designs which prevents me from being impressed. It looks like a video game from 2002 and the creatures are animated with floaty, unrealistic movements. These is especially apparent because the cartoon is mixed with live-action actors. For all the technical innovation, everything else about this movie is a cliché. It’s an entertaining spectacle but there are no fun surprises.
