Last week I went to see Avatar at a local movie theater in 3D. And during the first 15 minutes of the movie I was quite impressed with the 3D visuals, in fact I’m now convinced if cinema is to survive as a form of entertainment 3D is the way to go, otherwise going to a theater to see a movie is just not worth the trouble.
However, about 30 minutes into the movie, the novelty of the 3D visuals wore off and the mediocrity of the plot began to manifest itself big time. Having seen my share of Hollywood productions in my life, I could anticipate every turn in the story and sometimes even some of the lines in the dialog, often 30 minutes or so before they actually happened in the film and that was quite disappointing. Couldn’t James Cameron and co come up with a bit more original plot? What’s the point of just stringing together a series of stale cliches and calling it a movie. There is not one redeeming quality about this flick apart from the stunning 3D visuals. So far Avatar’s been the biggest disappointment of the year.
