IMAX 3D – Avatar: Way of Water

Reviews have been mixed. Including my own.

Rotten Tomatoes, 77%.

Avatar: The Way of Water is the sequel to Avatar (2009).

… The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the film for its visual effects and technical achievements but criticized the thin plot and lengthy runtime (3 hours and 12 minutes). …

Too sentimental.

But I’m glad I saw it on IMAX. And the 3D was not annoying. They seem to have made that technology more subtle.

Personally, I want less battle, more visuals of that amazing world.

Cameron said that about ten minutes of “gunplay action” were cut from the film as he was no longer inclined to “fetishize the gun” — but there’s still too much for me.

He also said that if you loved the first movie, you’re gonna love the sequels, and if you hated it, you’re probably gonna hate them.

My favourite character was Sigourney Weaver as 14-year-old Kiri.

She was the most tortured by being part human. BUT adapted to the water world most quickly.

I was intrigued, too, by Bailey Bass playing Tsireya (aka Reya), the daughter of clan leaders Tonowari and Ronal.

No doubt I’ll pay good money to see the sequels in the theatre. These special effects are fantastic.
