“Avatar: The Way of Water” is a visual masterpiece. 3D enhances these visuals and makes the graphics come alive. Although the visuals were amazing, the plot lacked depth and seemed very generic. The movie is also very long at a whopping 3 hours and 12 minutes.
Cameron Slavin said, “I think the long wait was worth it. “Avatar: The Way of Water” had a great story and seeing it in 3D made it even better.”
Keeping the same trend as the first movie, “Avatar: The Way of Water” pits the Na’vi, avatars that inhabit their planet Pandora, against the humans. The plot is very dry and takes a long time to set up. The visuals of Pandora make up for the lack of excitement and intricate plot.
This movie is perfect for people looking to see beautiful scenery and graphics. Most people should be able to appreciate the visuals enough to enjoy the movie for what it is.
The movie is not very complicated, and they certainly did not reinvent the wheel when it comes to story lines. With that being said, if you lack patience and do not care about visuals, then I would not recommend this movie.
Sean Mahanes said, “The movie was very entertaining with amazing special effects, but it seemed to drag at certain points and was very long.”
I personally enjoyed the movie very much. I thought the planet of Pandora looked stunning, and I definitely felt a deep interest in the world. I kind of got sucked into the movie due to its beauty despite the plot being mediocre.
Marty Gavin said, “The movie was thrilling. I was on the edge of my seat the whole film.”
