Movie Review and Synopsis : Avatar

After a long and gruesome week of final exams, finally, it’s all over, and since Mr.Rabbit was waiting for this movie since 2 months ago, we went for the movie right after his exams. And i gotta say, it’s a ONE HECK OF A WORTH WHILE MOVIE!! At first I won’t think much of it, but after watching it, it is seriously very good! We paid RM11 each ticket and the movie lasted for 3 hours. Even though Mr.Rabbit was a little disappointed that he didn’t manage to watch the 3D version of it, but i was pretty happy with it :)

The movie ending ‘bout 1.20a.m and i was surprise. OK..enough of the babbling on my day, let us start with the movie summary!!


So here it is!!

The main story is about we humans (known as Sky People in the movie) went to Pandora, a planet away from earth to seek for new fortune. So they created a species that look exactly like the Na’Vi people. However, the person that is suppose to handle one of the species died and they found Jake Sully (acted by Sam Worthington), his twin brother to substitute his place. Jake Sully used to be a Corporate in a marine but because of some accident, he could not walk anymore and is bounded to a wheel chair. But because of this project, they just needed Jake Sully’s DNA for the specimen and so they hired him.


Their purpose is to make the Na’Vi people trust humans so they could move out from their sacred “tree house” due to all the resources that the human wants is below it. Jake, working with Dr.Grace Augustine (acted by Sigourney Weaver) and also Norm Spellman (acted by Joel Moore). Due to Jake Sully is not like his twin brother (a scientist), they looked down on him and thinks that he could not do the things that his twin brother could. However, he surprised them with his first attempt in the Avatar’s body and he was able to control his avatar fairly well as the others scientist did.

As they went for specimen collection out in the woods, they lost Jake because one of the creatures were chasing after Jake, and they aren’t suppose to stay during the night. So they left Jake in the dark woods and went back to base camp.

As Jake thinks that he’s going to die in the paws of the Viperwolfes, Neytiri (acted by Zoe Saldana) saved him because somehow Jake was the chosen one. According to the Na’Vi saying, he has a pure heart and he has no fear. Neytiri brought him back to their ‘HomeTree’. Neytiri demanded that Jake must meet his mother, Mo’at (acted by CCH Pounder) and she, accepted him as one of the Omaticaya people. Tsu’Tey (acted by Laz Alonso) is Neytiri’s brother and is next in line to be the king of the Omaticaya People, were not happy that they accepted Jake as one of them. However, Mo’at gave the task of teaching Jake to be a real hunter and learn the ways of the Na’Vi. Neytiri is not happy with the decision but she still accepted the task. After falling asleep in the HomeTree, Jake wakes up in his real body and feeling a little disappointed. But as he told his stories about being with the tribe, everyone gave him a warm welcome and even Colonel Miles (acted by Stephen Lang) personally talked to him and made a deal with him. The deal was to get the Omaticaya people move out from the HomeTree in 3 months and Jake will get his legs back for good in Earth. avatar-20090922043156668_640w(Colonel Miles)

As Jake was very motivated to learn the ways of the Na’Vi people, gradually he fell in love with Neytiri and Neytiri is slowly having feelings for Jake too. With an blink of an eye, 3 months is up and Jake didn’t manage to convince the Omaticaya people to move out from their HomeTree. So Colonel Miles used gun fire and everything that they have and blast down their HomeTree, and of course the Omaticaya people are not happy with it and they wanted to fight back. But with only arrows and shield, they did not manage to fight back with the SkyPeople.

Being betrayed by Jake, the Omaticaya people rejected Norm, Grace and of course Jake. However, Jake manage to convince them that he wants to help by hunting down a Toruk to be his flying companion. According to the Omaticaya people, only the strongest could be a Toruk Flyer.

As Jake gave his speech, “The Sky People are here to send a message, that they could take anything that they want. And here we send them a message, that this is OUR LAND!” Being out numbers by the humans, the riders flew out to gather as many Omaticaya people as they can with the sentence “come fly with Toruk Rider” and they came. Yet, they are not strong enough. However, Erya (Mother of Soul) listened to Jake’s prayers and come in the niche of time to save the day! Compiling all types of creatures to help the Omaticaya people.


Reviews of the Movie.

The movie was splendid. It was very interesting on how they created their avatar to move every muscles in details. Like the tail, the ears, the eyes the muscles, it’s just totally awesome. It is definitely a must watch movie for everyone. I love how Jake can relate his feelings to the audience. He’s been on a wheel chair for such a long time and it must have been great for him finally walk on his 2 legs in his avatar.

The graphic was excellent, and the scenery is breath taking. James Cameron is such a good director and he is taking a very huge risk as most of the movie is done in graphic. Without all the famous actor to support the film but solely on the story line is very bold. I believe no one know most of the actor and actresses in the movie. According to the Internet, they spent about 500million just to create this movie. IMAGINE!!!! $500Million!!!!!!!!!!

Well, my only critic is why aliens in blue, and not red or white or something else lah…but no more complains.. I give super thumbs up for this movie!!
