The long awaited Avatar science fiction film from James Cameron has finally been released to the public. It is his first film since he scored a hit with Titanic. Titanic was the most expensive film and most successful. This film, costing $300 Million is hoping to emulate the same success. People have the option of seeing the movie in either 2D or 3D. Having seen the film in 3D, the film looks spectacular. It has many similarities with Dances with Wolves and A Man Called Horse, both of which are non-science fiction films.
The main character has to learn to be a Na'vi and as he does so, he finds himself falling in love with one of them. It has a geo-political message about encroaching into other peoples land and trying to take what they shouldn't take. The special effects, pardon the pun but they, they're out of this world. It can drag in places but the special effects does carry the film.
