This film was one of few that truly 'wowed' me this year. I loved the beauty of the film and found it easy to relate emotionally to the characters. The three-dimensional effects were an enhancement of the film, rather than an added selling point, and they certainly made the planet Pandora seem real. Though the plot reminded me of the story of Pocahontas, the strength of both setting and character made Avatar a film on a level all its own. Cameron has certainly raised the bar when it comes to film-making. The world he has created has such a detailed culture and general tangibility to it that it is impossible not to believe in it. I feel lucky to have had the chance to see this film.
