The movie Avatar is one of the biggest grossing movies to date and with good reason. Academy Award winner James Cameron’s genius was displayed once again with this epic tale of love in a new world of Pandora. Just when you thought that Titanic was never to be topped James Cameron took a fictional idea and made it into a new way of film making. Are we really surprised that the person to break the top grossing movie Titanic was the same person? It seems that in this case lighting stuck in the same place twice and we are glad it did! Taking us movie goers to a new world and a new way of life is never easy especially when there are so many movies that have come before Avatar. Even though many have tried to make similar stories of a world of utopia none have captured an audience so much that it changed how we look at movies as a whole. Beaming with colors and graphics that our eyes have never seen before, this visually stimulating film was not only equipped with a excellent story line but also a great message of hope, love and good hearted nature.
Avatar is a story of an ex marine who is paraplegic and is offered a chance to go to a far away land called Pandora where humans do not exist. This was a job that his deceased brother was originally supposed to fulfill but he now was given to finish. When he gets to this new planet he learns very quickly that he is now battling humankind as a Na’vi with the race that he has now become a part of. He was transformed into a ten foot tall, blue skinned tribe native who was sent to help save the sacred world that the military on earth is trying to destroy. In this world humans were transformed into half alien and half human bodies called Avatars. Since Jake Sully’s, played by Sam Worthington, brother had an Avatar already made for him before his death Jake Sully was able to take over his Avatar by having the same DNA code. Sigourney Weaver plays Grace Augustine who is the head of the scientific team that goes to Pandora to help ward off the evil in this world of hostile forces. After Jake gets separated from his team battling these evil creatures he is saved by the princess of Na’vi, Neytiri who is played by the beautiful Zoe Saldana.
After Neytiri brings Jake to her tribe they fall in love and Jake becomes fond of the world of Pandora and begins to feel like he belongs on this planet. With a lot of twist and turns and ups and downs there is an ending of intense love and belonging. The high action and emotional 2 hour and 40 minute movie takes you on a wild ride of fantasy and suspense that you can only experience while watching this 3D graphics film. Movies like Avatar come once in a lifetime and I think we can all agree that we are glad that we were able to experience the pure genius and underlining message of loving souls in our lifetime. In a world where most people judge by sight and fear, the unfamiliar area this film shows is that love can exist in any world if your heart will be open to allow it.
