Pandora

Overview

In the epic action adventure fantasy AVATAR, James Cameron, the director of Titanic, takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination. On the distant moon Pandora, a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption, discovery and unexpected love — as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization.

The Story

The story’s protagonist, Jake Sully(Sam Worthington), is an ex-Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. In order to participate in the Avatar program, which will give him a healthy body, Jake agrees to travel to Pandora, a lush rainforest environment filled with incredible life forms – some beautiful, many terrifying.

Pandora is also the home to the Na’vi, a humanoid race that lives at what we consider to be a primate level, but they are actually much more evolved than humans. Ten feet tall and blue skinned, the Na’vi live harmoniously within their unspoiled world. But as humans encroach on Pandora in search of valuable minerals, the Na’vi’s very existence is threatened – and their warrior abilities unleashed.

Jake has unwittingly been recruited to become part of this encroachment.

Since humans are unable to breathe the air on Pandora, they have created genetically-bred human-Na’vi hybrids known as Avatars. The Avatars are living, breathing bodies in the real world, controlled by a human driver through a technology that links the driver’s mind to the Avatar body.

On Pandora, through his Avatar body, Jake can be whole once again. Moreover, he falls in love with a young Na’vi woman, Neytiri( Zoe Saldana), whose beauty is matched by her ferocity in battle.

As Jake slides deeper into becoming one of her clan, he finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth, and the Na’vi – forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of an entire world.

The Most Memorable Scene

The most memorable scene for me towards this movie is when Jake Sully and the others started to enter the world of Pandora when they passed through all the Floating Mountain, i feel the amazement when this scene appears, all the big rock were floating in the air like some kind of gravity thingy which words can not describe. The floating mountain in this movie were really existed in the real world which is located in China at a place known as Zhang Jia Jie(at Hunan Province). I am planning to visit that place one day where i can look into the real floating mountain with my own eyes.

The Bad part

Lets talk about the the bad part about this movie before we go with the good . The bad part were that the character does not really speaks, the plot lines for each character were not developed well enough as sometimes you might heard a sudden vocab and it stops after that.

 

My Verdict & (Good part)

I would have rated a 9.5/10 rating for this movie as all the characters, creatures, plants, costumes, weapons, vehicles, and environment are from the prodigious imagination of this writer, director. I can feel how the director wanted to transports us to another world where we are immersed in the cross-cultural adventures of an ordinary man who is transformed by his encounters with the ancestral teachings and ecological activities of an alien race. The cinematography and computer-generated special effects in Avatar are astonishing — from the lush rainforest to the floating Hallelujah Mountains to the exhilarating sequences of flying, right down to the exotic insects. The CG Na’vi and avatar characters are wondrous to behold with their huge golden eyes, swishing tails, and facial expressions of various emotions.

All this is enough to recommend this amazing movie, but even more awe-inspiring is its spiritual dimensions.

 

IMDB

This movie have received the rating of 7.8/10 from IMDb, it is quite a high rating for a movie.
