Avatar Movie Review

Visually beautiful and stunning. The 3-D was terrific, layered, complete and integral to the visual environment. Those things--3-D and visual environment--were the star of the movie. The plot was terrible, 110% predictable. And the movie was a good 45 minutes too long. They should have stopped when the humanoid city-tree was destroyed--that would have made the movie shorter, and fixed the predictability problem nicely.

As an aside, the movie was criticized for portraying smoking, by the Sigourney Weaver character, in a somewhat romantic way. The dumbest part about that is--it was completely mis-placed. It was thrown in to make her look really tough and hard-edged, but then the rest of the movie she wasn't.
