From Amazon.co.uk

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

Product Description

Avatar is the story of ex-Marine Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, who finds himself thrust into hostilities on a distant planet filled with exotic life forms, Pandora. As an Avatar, a human consciousness in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture.

This is not a review but just as important. for those wishing to choose between the dvd or blu-ray as amazon have listed the blu-ray features.

So Actually: just for the info, the DVD version will only have 4 hours of special features (this is verified elswehere and on the hut website). where as the blu-ray will have the full 8hrs. Cheers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, but special edition on the way... 26 April 2010
By Deckard
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Ok so the film we all know about, how can you not? Personally I expected to dislike it given the enormous amount of hype that went with it, but in actual fact I thought it was an amazing film, dazzling, exciting, well acted, great effects and an immersive adventure, which whilst simple in story was perfect in execution. The Blu-Ray disc is pretty much going to be the reference quality disc for anyone wanting to show off their system, it boasts an absolutely staggeringly beauitful high def picture that's so vibrant and detailed it's a pleasure on the eye. The lossless DTS-DH Master audio is more than a match for the visuals, Pandora literally comes alive in your living room with varied and effective use of the whole surround set-up, crystal clear dialog, thunderous punchy action sequences and dynamic delivery of James Horner's score. #

So buy it then yes? Well, it depends.. If you absolutely can't wait to own it, then chances are you already have it. However if you're deliberating, and can wait a few months I would suggest holding fire because this release, believe it or not, in an absolute crime against home cinema releasing has NO EXTRAS. Yes that's right, ZERO, nada, zilch none. Not even an Avatar trailer, a 2 minute intro from james cameron, or even a flimsy Avatar coaster to stand your cuppa on.

But, of course, you know why... It's yet another massive title that distributors can dangle in front of you like a sizeable carrot while the film studio picks your back pocket. And then in 6 months time, oh yes, they will do it again..

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Pandora for a further eight minutes! 15 Oct 2010
By PIM
Format:DVD
After the phenomenal theatrical run of Avatar not least in the US but worldwide, $2.7 billion and counting, Fox Pictures had to reluctantly withdraw the movie from exhibition on IMAX screens to make way for the 3D and IMAX presentation of Alice in Wonderland. Cameron claimed that pulling Avatar from screens.."left money on the table"..so has re-released this picture to scoop up the remaining dollars, and taken the opportunity to release a slightly longer cut of the picture, once again on DVD and Blu Ray. Although quite how much they need the extra money is another matter! I personally was very happy to return to Pandora again for another 2 hours and 30 minutes. I found the movie again very immersive, and very moving.

James Cameron's movies are always long and he always cuts them: Aliens, Terminator 2 and The Abyss are prime examples - the missing footage incorporated later in their respective Director's Cuts and DVD/Blue Ray Extended Versions. However, the additional footage on display in this Special Edition comprises only eight minutes. It features noticeable extra scenes only on a few occasions; a scene set in Grace Augustine's abandoned school with colouring books littering the floor and bullet holes in the wall. It points to an interesting back-story off screen, and explains Jake Sully's questions later on when asking Neytiri how she learnt English so well. Photos of Grace, Neytiri and some Na'vi children on the locker door at the Hallelujah Mountains mobile site also fleshes this small plot-line out. Other scenes feature a short segment showing a newly-initiated Jake hunting a stampede of Pandoran Buffalo-type creatures (Sturmbeasts) during a flying montage.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3D Makes it a better film 24 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I purchased this at HMV due to promising a movie night at my house and unfortunately my Amazon purchase did not arrive on time (yet - Royal Mail issue?), but this is exactly the same film - therefore is not an Amazon verified purchase.

Like I always say, I am dubious of reviews before the product is released as I do not feel this is a true representation of what you get. So reviews from 2 years ago are obviously not basing it on the product that was released a week ago.

The film is ok in my opinion, seems to be a mix of Ferngully, Aliens & Dances With Wolves. But my opinion is my opinion and I suggest you form your own. However, when seeing this movie in 3D it is SOOOO much better! I was amazed with the 3D which made the film far more engaging.

The packaging is quite nice - the lenticular art is a nice look. Inside you get a run of the mill blu-ray disc box with 2 discs. One is the DVD and the other is the mixed 3D/2D blu-ray. Of course you get the 'Titanic' flyer - what film doesn't get an insert in it these days? Thankfully the film wasn't covered in all that shrink wrap that does my head in.

The film is 161 minutes long - this is NOT the extended edition. I am sure that one will crop up one day in yet another limited edition super mega steelbook. Disc one (the blu-ray) does not have any extras beyond the film, the DVD disc does not have any special features either. There was a collectors edition release a while ago that will have all this bonus content, but no 3D version of the film. Both discs are THX mastered and the blu-ray had DTS 5.1 Master Audio which sounds amazing on my Onkyo home theatre system. Of course the films are letterboxed on a widescreen telly.
