Reviews

Amerikaanse sciencefiction/actiefilm uit 2009 van James Cameron (Titanic; Aliens), met Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana en Sigourney Weaver. De invalide ex-marinier Jake Sully maakt kennis met bewoners van planeet Pandora: tweeëneenhalve meter grote blauwe reuzen. De mens wil daar grondstoffen winnen omdat de aarde is uitgeput. Als Jake verliefd wordt op de inheemse Neyteri leidt dat tot vele conflicten. De pers is zeer lovend over deze film die door 800.000 Nederlanders in de bioscopen is gezien. Gaf tot nog toe wereldwijd het beste resultaat aller tijden met 2,6 miljard dollar. Recensenten waarderen de film veelal met 4 - 5 sterren en zeggen o.a. 'de meest revolutionaire film van het jaar', 'onovertroffen spektakel', 'Avatar zet hele filmfilosofie op zijn kop' etc. Deze dvd wordt nu uitgebracht in 2D-versie. Winnaar van drie Oscars (Best achievement in visual effects; cinematography; art direction).
