This was the first bluray disc I bought with my player and new tv, Wow! Talk about being dragged at warp factor 10 into the present! Stunning pinpoint sharp picture, vibrant colour palette, amazing sound clarity, just fantastic all round.
Avatar is the story of humans mining other planets and moons as they've stripped earth bare. They discover a massive underground deposit of the mineral Unobtainium on a beautiful, lush moon called Pandora which is inhabited by a tribe of 10 foot tall humanoids called The Na'vi and an amazing array of plant and animal life. James Cameron has created a visual wonder here, outstanding!
The Na'vi live within and around a gargantuan tree called Hometree which is situated directly above the underground deposit of the mineral. Of course the mining company want the Na'vi tribe out of the way so they can mine there. . .at any cost whatsoever!
Avatar is no literary great, lesson in acting or classic movie. What it is though is a sci-fi epic sound and vision treasure trove of a movie! From the shots of Pandora's flora and fauna, space craft, action scenes, battle and animal scenes, military hardware, the Na'vi and even the mining vehicles, you will be astounded by everything on view here. No wonder this was the first two billion dollar making movie! The detail in every shot is amazing, visually and soundwise it appears flawless.
There are so many extras on these discs it'll take forever to watch them it seems. You'll just have to keep going back to them forever!
An amazing, groundbreaking technological epic of a movie. A brilliant bluray package here too.
A must see movie for any sci-fi fan in my opinion.
