Falling in love doesn’t make always a great story. A crippled ex-marine, Jack Sully travels to a mining colony at planet named Pandora, and he is part of the security personnel there. He gets an opportunity to be involved in a scientific research and is able to control the mind of a cloned native(the Na’vis) He falls in love with a hot Neytiri girl and sides with the tribal against the evil designs of mining corporation, who are out to destroy the tribal flora and fauna. From where does the storywriter get inspiration from? Modern science? Early adventures of the colonial powers on the American tribal population? Or from other movies? The story failed to catch my imagination. Seriousness in the situation, which was not there, was created deliberately. I watched, but did not appreciate the sequences. The outcomes of the stunts are predictable.
The reasons for its commercial success:
James Cameron is a big name in the movie world. It is a big budget movie and it is in the process of earning great profits. Since the release of Titanic, the ways of the advertising media have changed much. The name of James Cameron sells—and the man and his team knows how to sell it, having invested an astronomical sum to produce the movie. Distribution and advertisement techniques are planned well and they are part of the movie production. A movie is produced to with the express plans to sell it in the box office. Movie business is not a philanthropic activity.
The merits vs. demerits The visual
prowess is fine. But does that add to the strength of the script? I reason desperately what exactly is special about the script but fail to get any positive answer. The script seems to have been borrowed in bits and parts from several other movies that I have seen. It seems like a conglomeration, joined together by cut-paste method. The theme has taken leave from the script. What is the backgrounder information for the genocide attempts? Or is it a movie sponsored by some UNO organization for environmental preservation? The thematic weight needed in a movie is totally absent. Minor spoilers: Need a big movie end up in a big fight? James Cameron thinks so. The fight of the three people who plug themselves at their respective outlets with the express intent to kill each other, is just a deliberately created big action sequence, and is a savage display of combination of science, technology and cinematic technicalities. It is absolutely meaningless and does damage to the theme of the story, if there is one. The concept of collective consciousness has been exploited by those who have no knowledge about the actual meaning and implication of these words. A wrong bolt has fixed in to a wrong hole. The ideas which James Cameron tries to propound are juvenile, immature and to be precise, kindergarten stuff. The dialogues do not inspire. Many opine that Avatar is a serious movie-- Serious for what and about what? Conclusion: Finally, it seems the dialogues have been forced to create an impact. This happens when one borrows ideas from different movies and tries to create a web to catch the
