(86) Despite sporting a run-of-the-mill fantasy plot, Jim Cameron’s Avatar is an epic technological achievement. Touting top-notch visuals, a talented cast, and excellent pacing, this leviathan picture manages to soar through its nearly three hour run-time smoothly and with style. I would argue that Avatar is the first legitimate artistic endeavor into 3-D filmmaking, presenting an immersive experience, rather than a series of gimmicks. Delivery of the film’s message may be obtuse and heavy-handed, but its shockingly powerful visual composition is sure to make a lasting impression.
