Avatar was released in 2009 but it was only this afternoon that I got interested in watching it (yeah, yeah, I know!). It was directed and written by James Cameron and its cast include Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore and Giovanni Ribisi.
Avatar is a science fiction movie about a paraplegic marine who was dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission. He later faced this dilemma of choosing between following his orders and protecting the world that he now feels as his home.
This movie has superb visual effects and it’s no wonder why as of November 14, 2011, it is still the highest-grossing film worldwide. It’s story is unique, well-planned and well-executed. The film’s message is also deep – it shows how capitalism, imperialism and militarism can disrupt the harmony in nature.
I would give this movie a rating of 5/5. Definitely worth watching all over again.
