Technical Details

Product Description

After 12 years of thinking about it (and waiting for movie technology to catch up with his visions), James Cameron followed up his unsinkable Titanic with Avatar, a sci-fi epic meant to trump all previous sci-fi epics. Set in the future on a distant planet, Avatar spins a simple little parable about greedy colonizers (that would be mankind) messing up the lush tribal world of Pandora. A paraplegic Marine named Jake (Sam Worthington) acts through a 9-foot-tall avatar that allows him to roam the planet and pass as one of the Na’vi, the blue-skinned, large-eyed native people who would very much like to live their peaceful lives without the interference of the visitors. Although he’s supposed to be gathering intel for the badass general (Stephen Lang) who’d like to lay waste to the planet and its inhabitants, Jake naturally begins to take a liking to the Na’vi, especially the feisty Neytiri (Zoë Saldana, whose entire performance, recorded by Cameron’s complicated motion-capture system, exists as a digitally rendered Na’vi). The movie uses state-of-the-art 3D technology to plunge the viewer deep into Cameron’s crazy toy box of planetary ecosystems and high-tech machinery. Maybe it’s the fact that Cameron seems torn between his two loves–awesome destructive gizmos and flower-power message mongering–that makes Avatar‘s pursuit of its point ultimately uncertain. That, and the fact that Cameron’s dialogue continues to clunk badly. If you’re won over by the movie’s trippy new world, the characters will be forgivable as broad, useful archetypes rather than standard-issue stereotypes, and you might be able to overlook the unsurprising central plot. (The overextended “take that, Michael Bay” final battle sequences could tax even Cameron enthusiasts, however.) It doesn’t measure up to the hype (what could?) yet Avatar frequently hits a giddy delirium all its own. The film itself is our Pandora, a sensation-saturated universe only the movies could create. –Robert Horton

Please note: This edition of the film is not in 3D.

“Avatar (Original Theatrical Edition)” 2010-10-27

By Claudia R. Johnson (Cottage Grove, MN)

One of the most exciting movies I’ve seen in a long time! I’m so glad to have it as part of my DVD collection.

“For all the senses” 2010-10-26

By Brian Donahoo (Austin TX)

This is one of the most visually stunning movies that was made for Blue-Ray. The sound and the imagery are intense from the first few moments of the story. The story is that for the ages. At a time when man is looking at his affects on the environment, this movie takes an outside in look. The war in the movie can easily be a war within oneself. How much is too much? Where is the connecting point? I enjoyed watching the warrior connect to his inner self for the first time. He went through a true transformation. Great movie, great visuals, great sound, great story…

“Great movie/Disappointing DVD” 2010-10-25

By Nancy J. Consumer

I purchased this DVD because I really liked the movie. However, beyond simply liking the movie, I usually buy a DVD for what we don’t see in the movie, such as the making of the movie, star and director commentary, deleted scenes etc. This DVD came with no extra features, and this was very disappointing to me. I’m guessing that the DVD will be re-released soon as a special edition and it will contain all of the features I thought I was getting this time around.

“Much to my SURPRISE I loved it!” 2010-10-25

By kindred spirit (God’s Country)

I rented this from Netflix and watched it just to see what all the hype was about. I never expected to love it. It is sci-fi and enchanted-romance all in one. I loved the special effects and the looks of love that went between the Avatar the “the People” The tree of life on the HDTV big screen is so enchanting and beautiful with all the little pure souls floating around it.

So I came to Amazon and got my own copy. The first reviewer is correct there are no special effects how we did it clips or trailers, bloopers on this DVD. I didn’t care as it was the movie I wanted. Many times I never look at those things anyway.

Even if you are not into this type of movie I think this has something for everyone. Romance, Fantasy, War, Fast Action, Special effects.

I now use the saying “I see you” more often. 🙂

“Just as good as the movie version” 2010-10-24

By maniac

If you saw the 3D version, this DVD doesn’t fail.

Same story, just as touching, just no 3D
