We enter the alien world through the eyes of Jake Sully, a former Marine confined to a wheelchair. But despite his broken body, Jake is still a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light years to the human outpost on Pandora, where corporations are mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis. Because the atmosphere of Pandora is toxic, they have created the Avatar Program, in which human "drivers" have their consciousness linked to an avatar, a remotely-controlled biological body that can survive in the lethal air. These avatars are genetically engineered hybrids of human DNA mixed with DNA from the natives of Pandora... the Na'vi.

Reborn in his avatar form, Jake can walk again. He is given a mission to infiltrate the Na'vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But a beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake's life, and this changes everything. Jake is taken in by her clan, and learns to become one of them, which involves many tests and adventures. As Jake's relationship with his reluctant teacher Neytiri deepens, he learns to respect the Na'vi way and finally takes his place among them. Soon he will face the ultimate test as he leads them in an epic battle that will decide nothing less than the fate of an entire world.

The plot of avatar is a combo of Pocahontas, Dances With Wolves and from what I hear, Fern Gully ( I have never seen the movie). You have Jake Sully, a human who through some machine, is placed in a Na’vi’s body. He rescued from a female Na’vi. He’s taken to her tribe. She teaches him their ways. He falls in love with her, her people and culture. He helps to save their people from the human destruction.

The plot is very predictable. You know he’s going to help them. You know he’s going to bring down the bad guys and you know he’ll find a way to be with blue chick forever and ever. I didn’t think much of the story. My sister and I agreed at certain parts there was some over acting. Like when what’s her name is upset. I’m like.. dude, calm down.

The special effects were awesome though. The way the planet was, the floating mountains, the plants and flowers were all beautiful. That would have been cool to see in 3D.

Other than that the movie was just all right.

Please netflix Ferngully. I LOVED that movie as a kid. I still love it. LOL

When my coworker asked me about avatar this is what I told her: It's Ferngully for adults. LOL She knew what I was talking about cuz I guess her kids loved that movie too. Too cute.

In 3-D the special effects were amazing, but it still looks good in 2-D too.

I loved Fern Gully too. Way more than I liked this movie. But Fern Gully did have smexy Jake. He was so yummy when he was a human. hehe.

Not my kind of movie ... I'll wait for it to come on the movie channel.
