Summary :

More than a decade after the events of the first film, discover the Sal family (the story of Jake, Neytiri and their children), the problems that follow them, the efforts to save themselves, the battles they face. Survive and bear the tragedy.

"Avatar. At the beginning of "The Way of Water," Navy leader Jack Sully (Sam Worthington) summarizes the events between himself and Neytiri's (Zoe Saldana) four children (of various ages, minors, and teenagers) to summarize. . children). Last life on Pandora's moon. In this sequence, Jack notes that after a short while, hearing and speaking Na'vi becomes as natural as English, and disappears when the film's subtitles change from language to language. Nothing seems to matter in the grand narrative scheme of this 3+ hour epic, and it doesn't, but it's a reminder of how deft and economical director James Cameron is with storytelling and world building. , which shows the complete evolution. It is about the heroes and their lives.

It's also worth noting that James Cameron (working with screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who created the story with Josh Friedman and Shane Salerno doing the rest) fills every second of those three hours with spectacular visuals. Character beats and spectacular action scenes. Checked for high-res 3D considerations (though I recommend ditching the janky HFR, as the experience would probably be smoother and more enjoyable without it), it takes less than five seconds to feel like genius. There has never been a visual storyteller like this, and probably never will be.

James Cameron popularized 3D with Avatar , with many filmmakers and franchises attempting to replicate this incredible and generally unsuccessful feat (including Paul W. S. Anderson's adaptation of Resident Evil and Robert Rodriguez's Alita: Battlefront). angel ," produced by James Cameron, as well as a few parts of me. I'm having a hard time thinking of any other time when the format was so impressive, impressive, and impressive. So if you haven't seen this movie in a while, it's going to rock your bearings right away. Getting 3D at its best (swinging doesn't seem difficult) with incredible depth, vibrancy and smooth motion. Fly through the jungle like Navia!

So I admit to missing pieces of dialogue to establish new characters in Sal's family; Cinematographer Russell Carpenter's photography of Pandora is absolutely mesmerizing, enhanced by Simon Franglen's gorgeous score. It's like playing a video game where you want to step out of the story line and immerse yourself in the detailed descriptions of the environment, flora, fauna, elegant animals and characters (the motion capture here is incredibly realistic). Thankfully, it's still pretty easy to figure out who each of the kids are (among a few other new characters), but it's a testament to James Cameron's incredible craftsmanship that you get to play Avatar: The Last Airbender. In the movie "The Way of Life". Let it be washed in water . Above you, for a grand and overwhelming sensory experience. Character and theme come apart emotionally as James Cameron finally knows how to balance the two.

In this case, after Stephen Lang's villain Miles Quaritch re-emerges as Recom (incarnations using the memories and DNA of dead people) with a new, similarly formed group, he pursues the Sally clan, but this time to colonize Pandora . . . As the world becomes lifeless (even though these films are set over 100 years in the future, it's hard to escape the fact that James Cameron is looking for a real analogy here), Jake is faced with the choice of staying and going. War to save the world. Or run away to a new home to protect his family.

With no familial responsibilities and no choice but to get into the emotional heart of a heart, Sal's family crosses Pandora's Wall in hopes of having fun among the Metkaina tribe (they're green-blue, amphibious, with scaly makeup). Kate Winslet's Ronal and her husband Oloiktan Tonvari (Cliff Curtis), a team with a deep connection to water, summed it up lyrically. As they introduce their children and many other characters in Avatar: The Last Airbender. Waterway' slows down to admire the sea and its many beautiful creatures, where many wonderful scenes are actually filmed (the technology on display here is top-shelf). crazy.) As for the beach town, the closest comparison that comes to mind is Bayside from Final Fantasy X , though the scope is much more ambitious.

However, while the characters often feel underdeveloped with superficial complications, bogged down in a logically disjointed and scattered story, too much to explore and over 3 hours of levels to offer, the shows finds emotion and heart. The storyboard sometimes seems like it was written by a sarcastic teenager (again, there are random, irrelevant insults that sometimes don't even sound like what someone would talk about), but at the same time, he knows how to: to build the big one. carries a sense of struggle and heavy intent. There is a lot of rush and moments where the characters are in real danger and in some cases die because this is a good movie.

The insight of James Cameron and company makes up for the characterization errors; The family is explored as one of the children is not Jacqueen or Natheri, but the biological daughter of Sigourney Weaver's avatar, now a teenager Kiri, who is searching for her place and identity in the world. her biological father. However, the real headache (at least for me, I went into this film blind) is that Kirio is played by Sigourney Weaver, who gives an organically moving performance (again, the motion capture is incredibly expressive).

Then, brothers Nethayam and Loak (played by Jamie Flutters and Britten Dalton respectively) find themselves in a sibling rivalry, as the latter is often reckless and puts his siblings in danger, while the former is more rational, intelligent. And full of wealth. . Skilled in combat. The Cubs drag the baby Spider-Man to a furiously victorious Jack Champion, reminiscent of The Jungle Book , a remnant of an earlier battle with the Skymen. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out her background and who she's related to, and reveal that it allows the script to show a different family dynamic. Loak also has an extra finger, earning him the label of a monster, which serves as the starting point for another cheeky subplot when he encounters a misunderstood giant whale that everyone calls ferocious and murderous and has no fin. .

For Quaritch, his new body allows James Cameron to portray a more sinister and primal connection to the creatures of the earth and sky, mastering the powers rather than the spiritual. James Cameron cares deeply about protecting land, oceans and the world at all costs, so much so that Avatar: The Last Airbender. Parts of "Water Road" seem to exist to bask in its glory. As for action movies, the film is a fusion of James Cameron's entire filmography, not just Titanic (a relentless battle sequence set on a sinking ship), but also Alien and Terminator (a fiery sweep through Pandora. The same was observed : in T2 ) the sequential cinematography of the day is correct). However, the underwater battles are truly amazing and create that "what the hell was that" movie magic.

Ultimately, the story is a big mess, and there's a lot to learn about these characters (including certain plot points that will pay off in future sequels), but that has to be weighed against everything else. What is lost in translation? . "Avatar. From the "Water Road" show . Definitely requires two visits. one to experience the crazy feats of technology, the thrill of natural history (something new, of course, James Cameron knows how to bring this home to something extraordinarily exciting that transcends the familiar) and the other. The heroes are themselves.

Anyway, the ride puts most Hollywood blockbusters of the last ten years to shame, so let's just be glad we don't have to wait another ten years for James Cameron to dazzle again. Every avatar picture. The waterway is full of personality and life. This is the masterful cinematography of a living legend.
