QUICK TAKE:
Sci-fi/Action/Adventure: In the distant future on another planet, an Earthling goes undercover in an avatar body to infiltrate the indigenous race in hopes of helping his people get their hands on a valuable mineral located there.
PLOT:
It's the year 2154 and humans have exhausted and/or destroyed the resources on Earth. Accordingly, they've sent a corporate team headed by Parker Selfridge (GIOVANNI RIBISI) to the planet of Pandora to mine a valuable and powerful mineral known as Unobtainium. The indigenous, tribal type beings that live there, the blue-skinned and Amazonian type Na'vi, however, are none too happy about the "sky people" interlopers who are now infringing on their world.

While a team of military contractors lead by Col. Miles Quaritch (STEPHEN LANG) is raring to go guns blazing, Parker is allowing the diplomatic approach its chance to avoid bloodshed and thus bad PR back home. That effort is fronted by Dr. Grace Augustine (SIGOURNEY WEAVER) who's created a high-tech program where puppet Na'vi -- created by mixing the DNA of that race with the human variety -- serve as flesh and blood avatars controlled from a remote location by human operators.

Among them is former Marine Jake Sully (SAM WORTHINGTON) who lost function of his legs while in the Corps but can't afford to get them fixed. Grace isn't happy to see him since he's replacing his recently murdered brother who trained for years for this task, but since he shares the same genome with his sibling, Jake is given the green light and joins her and Norm Spellman (JOEL DAVID MOORE) in infiltrating the locals.

But Jake, still getting used to his new remote body, ends up separated from them and chopper pilot Trudy Chacon (MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ), and must contend with the dangerous and exotic wildlife that comes out at night. He ends up saved by warrior princess Neytiri (ZOE SALDANA), who nearly killed him earlier but got a sign from nature not to, and is then captured by lead warrior Tsu'tey (LAZ ALONSO) and taken back to the tribe and its leader (and Neytiri's father), Eytukan (WES STUDI). With his wife similarly sensing some potential greatness in Jake, Eytukan orders his daughter to train the outsider in their ways, unaware that Jake, while his avatar is sleeping, is back at headquarters feeding intel to Quaritch about how to plan their attack.

But the more time he spends with Neytiri and her people, the more Jake starts to see and then adopt their lifestyle, mindset, and connection with their natural world. As that puts him in direct conflict with Quaritch, Jake must then do what he can to protect his new friends from the military onslaught that's about to ravage them and their land.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many will, especially considering the hype built around this release and/or if they're fans of director James Cameron.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and some smoking.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • SAM WORTHINGTON plays a wheelchair-bound former Marine who takes his late brother's place in the avatar program on Pandora. Working for both Grace in that regard as well as Quaritch in feeding him intel for a potential military strike, the young man ends up enjoying his newfound mobility and mission, but then finds himself understanding, being drawn to and then accepting the Na'vi lifestyle, particularly in regards to Neytiri with whom he has sex while in his avatar body. He uses some profanity and tries to protect his new people from Quaritch and the approaching and then attacking military forces.
  • ZOE SALDANA plays the warrior princess who, through a signal from nature, opts not to kill him and instead is then ordered to teach him the ways of her people. She's initially reluctant as he's an outsider, but she eventually comes to respect, like and then have sex with him. She's quite skilled in survival and communicating with nature.
  • SIGOURNEY WEAVER plays the head of the avatar program who wants no harm to come to the Na'vi and hopes that Jake, after initially not liking him, can make that happen. She also appears in avatar form among the locals, uses some profanity, smokes a few times and briefly drinks.
  • STEPHEN LANG plays the gruff and single-minded Marine colonel who's heading up the military side of the operation and is gung-ho to go in and wipe out the Na'vi to get the Unobtainium. He uses profanity.
  • MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ plays a chopper pilot under his command who finally tires of the aggressive military approach and sides with Jake and the others against Quaritch. She uses profanity.
  • GIOVANNI RIBISI plays the corporate official who's willing to allow a brief stint of diplomacy before unleashing Quaritch on the locals so that they can get their hands on the Unobtainium.
  • JOEL DAVID MOORE plays another avatar controller who works alongside Jake.
  • LAZ ALONSO plays the lead warrior of the Na'vi who initially doesn't like Jake, but ends up helping train him and then fights alongside him against the humans.
  • WES STUDI plays Neytiri's father, the wise leader of the Na'vi clan who orders that she train Jake (in avatar form) about their ways so that they can better study him.

    HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


    Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
    Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


    (Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


    OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
    The following is a brief summary of the content found in this action/adventure pic that's been rated PG-13. Profanity consists of at least 10 "s" words, while other expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered. Some non-explicit, but sexually related dialogue is present, alien humanoids have sex once (briefly seen and more sensual than graphic), and those Amazonian type humanoids (male and female) are always seen scantly clad in a tribal fashion sense.

    Violence consists of large scale battles where humans and alien humanoids are killed by various means (gunfire, arrows, explosions, etc.) while lots of property damage also occurs as does fighting and the killing of animals. Some of that has bloody results (but not as much as could have been present considering the amount of violence), and those scenes and various moments of potential peril could be unsettling and/or suspenseful to some viewers.

    The fighting, action and other behavior might be enticing to imitate, while various characters have bad attitudes. Some smoking and drinking are present, and there's a sarcastic drug reference. Tense family material is present, as are some thematic elements.

    If you're still concerned about the film and its appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home who may be interested in seeing it, we suggest that you take a closer look at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

    For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, various scenes in the film show flying point of view shots, as well as other action-based camera movement, including that of running (and thus bouncy footage).

  • Scenes listed here and under "Violence" may be unsettling, suspenseful or scary to younger viewers and/or those with low tolerance levels for such material.
  • In avatar form, Jake slowly walks through the jungle.
  • An enormous, rhino-type creature charges at Jake, with Grace telling him it's just a territorial threat and not to shoot as that will only "piss him off." Jake makes a bunch of noise and the creature turns and rushes away, not because of his actions, but because of a huge predator that leaps over him and goes after that and other similar creatures. It then turns back toward him, with Grace yelling for him to run. He does, with it in hot pursuit. He tries hiding down in the root structure of a tree, but the creature repeatedly tears at that with its mouth and claws (with various close calls). He fires his machine gun at it, but it grabs and flings the gun away, causing him to run off again, with it in pursuit once again. It catches him and bites into his backpack, picking him up by that and then flings him away with a shake of its head. He then runs again, jumping off a cliff just in time as it lunges at him, stopping short on the cliff as he falls a long distance into the water below.
  • Jake (in avatar form) slowly walks through the jungle, uncertain of what he might encounter. Unbeknownst to him, Neytiri nearly shoots him with an arrow, but stops due to a floating creature that makes her rethink her plan.
  • Jake finds himself in the jungle at night, with the sounds of creatures all around. He quickly lights a makeshift torch and uses that to try to ward off the approaching, scary-looking dog-type creatures that now surround him. They end up attacking, with him hitting some with his torch, followed by using his knife to slice and stab others. He then has to hold one at bay as it's on top of him, but Neytiri shoots that one and others with arrows. She then stabs more and uses something to hit more of the creatures. She then does a mercy killing of an injured one, but we don't see the actual fatal blow.
  • Jake (in avatar form) nearly falls off a big log, high above the ground, while walking behind Neytiri.
  • For those with issues about heights, several scenes feature look-down shots of various heights.
  • Jake (in avatar form) must edge his way along a narrow precipice by a waterfall to proceed to a section where he must choose his own personal huge bird creature as his own. The birds are wild and angry until tamed/broken, and he jumps on one around its neck, but is knocked off and then dangles from the ledge. He then tries again and succeeds, with Neytiri saying Jake and the bird must fly together to bond their pairing, so they do. But the bird plummets due to Jake not initially thinking the proper flight thoughts (during this they crash into a mountain wall), but he eventually gains control.
  • As Jake (in avatar form) and Neytiri fly on their individual large birds, a much bigger predator bird then chases after them, crashing through trees and such trying to get them (they barely get away).
  • With Jake (in avatar form) in a deep sleep due to Jake being out of his connection chamber elsewhere, huge construction machinery approaches him and Neytiri, with her panicking to wake Jake. A huge tree is knocked over and nearly hits them, with Jake (in avatar form) finally regaining consciousness once the real Jake gets back into his chamber. Jake (in avatar form) then tries to stop the machinery, including bashing the cameras on top of one, followed by a machine gun fired at him.
  • Tsu'tey pushes Jake (in avatar form) to the ground. The two then fight, with Jake avoiding all but one slice of Tsu'tey's dagger. When Quaritch pulls the plug on the real Jake elsewhere, Jake (in avatar form) goes limp, and Tsu'tey prepares to slice his throat, but Neytiri knocks him aside. In the other location, Quaritch then punches the real Jake in the face.
  • Parker gives Jake one hour to get the Na'vi to evacuate the area before the military sweeps in.
  • The Na'vi fire arrows at the approaching military choppers to no avail, followed by the latter firing noxious gas and then missiles that cause a volley of explosions. The next round of them blows various Na'vi aside by the blasts and shock waves. As the military continues to blast a gargantuan tree, Na'vi deaths are suggested. When the tree finally falls, it and its pieces crush various Na'vi (not seen in full).
  • As Trudy starts to fly off in a chopper with others, Quaritch opens fire on the craft, first with a machine gun and then his handgun. The chopper gets away, but Grace then shows she's been shot somewhere in her torso (she shows blood on her hand).
  • Jake (in avatar form) jumps from his personal bird down onto a much larger predator and connects his ponytail to that, thus controlling it.
  • A major character dies from her wounds received earlier in the film.
  • Quaritch and his contingent of choppers fly toward the Na'vis' pivotal tree of souls, with a huge ship carrying massive bundles of explosives.
  • A massive, multi-minute air and ground battle breaks out between the human soldiers and the Na'vi. During that, Na'vi (and their personal bird rides) are hit by gunfire and missile explosions, while various choppers are hit and explode, including one crashing into another. Arrows also hit various soldiers, while missiles and machine guns are fired at Jake (in avatar form) as he flies on his bird. Missiles are also fired at Trudy who then fires back with machine guns, but her chopper is later hit and goes out of control. Neytiri's bird is hit and she crashes hard to the ground, while Tsu'tey shoots arrows into many and hits and throws others on a chopper before being shot and falling a long way toward the ground. A chopper explodes, while Norm's avatar is hit. During this, Neytiri ends up hiding behind a lone tree as armed forces approach. Just then, massive, armored rhino type creatures crash through the forest and smash through soldiers and their machinery, while a huge predator approaches Neytiri, but doesn't attack her. Huge birds then attack choppers from the air, including one grabbing a soldier and throwing him out. shoots many soldiers atop a large ship with a machine gun, and then throws a grenade into an engine, resulting in a massive explosion and crashing of that ship (as he jumps off and back onto his bird). then tries that again on Quaritch's ship, but the latter grabs the control and causes to slip and dangle from the side, while his grenade misses the engine, but still explodes and causes damage. Quaritch then shoots who falls off and down through the jungle, while the massive explosives payload slides back into the ship and explodes, just as Quaritch manages to leap out in a large robot.
  • Quaritch heads toward a camper of sorts in which Jake is in his tube controlling his avatar. Just then, Neytiri -- riding a huge predator -- jumps onto Quaritch and the big robot he's controlling from within it. The predator and robot battle, with Quaritch eventually using the robot to stab the beast repeatedly, killing it and causing Neytiri to be trapped beneath its body. Quaritch's robot then battles Jake (in avatar form) with various blows and close calls with large knives both ways, with the robot eventually throwing aside. It then lifts by his ponytail and prepares to slice him, but Neytiri fires two huge arrows into Quaritch's torso.
  • Jake scrambles out of his control tube, desperate for oxygen since the camper glass he's in has been breached. He crawls along the floor and reaches for the oxygen mask, but can't get it and then collapses, losing consciousness.

  • As Jake examines his new Na'vi tail, Grace jokingly tells him to stop playing with that or he'll go blind (presumably a masturbation joke).
  • Quaritch complains about the avatar program being a "Bunch of limp d*ck science majors."
  • All of the Na'vi (blue-skinned, slender and Amazonian type creatures), male and female, are seen wearing minimal, jungle/tribal type clothing. For the men (including Jake in avatar form) that means just tiny loincloths that show most of their bare butt save for the part covered by their long tales. The females, including Neytiri, wear the same or something similar down below, with a thing strap of material across their breasts.

  • Neytiri finds her mortally wounded father who has a large piece of wood sticking through his torso. He then dies, causing her much grief.
