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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive 3d 15 Oct 2012
By Chris Hoare TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Its been a very long time coming Avatar 3d BluRay having been exclusive to Panasonic for a long time. Now that its here its good to remember how much time and money James Cameron spent getting the 3d right in Avatar. Even now 3 years late only the stark but visually stunning Prometheus has come close to giving the consideration as to how the 3d should look.

The 3d box comes with 2d and 3d versions on bluray and a dvd; Im not sure why they include DVD's anymore and would far rather they had included a digital copy. THe heart of the matter is the 3d version; something i have been waiting for some time. The blu ray transfer is outstanding; with no motion juddering and the super bright colours of Pandora still look especially great. As the film progresses he alien environment comes to life with plants and flies buzzing around the actors.

The sound is as epic as the visuals; and as the film builds to its climatic ending if you have one your subwoofer gets more and more work.

Its an impressive visual feast; the plot is perhaps a little hokey; but its the 3d film you will show your friends to demonstrate your TV every time.

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.
