Okay, so I went to see this in 3D the other day. I've never seen a film in 3D before and I have to say that it really does enhance the experience of the film. However, the film itself is utter balls.
Imagine Dances with Wolves, on an alien planet, with blue creatures and re-written by a 12yr old.
Need I say more?
Okay, I will: Cameron should be an artistic director, he does this very well, his sets are amazing, his props well conceived (although the soldier, vehicles and all their gear were directly ripped form the Colonial Marines of Aliens - recycle your 3D models to save money?) but in terms of writing, the man's a retard. The script was awful, the story was simplistic and the characters were shallow. On top of that his desire to eradicate humanity from film in pursuit of recreating everything with computers is plain idiotic. The point of using non-human things in film is to offer a mirror on which to extract the human condition. Cameron just wants to w@nk
off to as many amazingly vibrant colours and shapes as the billions of $$$ in CGI can afford him. Don't get me wrong, the CGI was seamless, the effects were excellent and the character animation was amazing. But all this money and computer use to create a film which, once again, is devoid of any real point, depth or interest.
Visually astounding, cerebrally puerile.
