It's like Disney's Pocahontas .... in space. With 7-foot+ tall mutated Smurfs.
Jake Sulley. John Smith. Na'Vi protagonist was daughter of the chief. See a coincidence?
With that aside, I absolutely loved it, mostly due to the creature creativity (spinning helicoptor neon-glow night lizards ftw?) CG was also a plus.
Storyline was cliche, though. Right when I saw the female Na'Vi protagonist shuffling through the foliage, tracking Jake as an intruder, I thought, "...And that's the girl Jake is going to fall in love with."
Predictable, though it was the way that the story was told and the way it turned out that kept my eyes glued to the screen. I mean, who wouldn't want to go through a rite of passage trial that involved taming a sort of drago-- wait, nevermind. I'd die.
Saw it in 2D only. Want to see it in 3D just to make comparisons, though I'm sure 2D is better.
If all else failed in industry, the Na'Vi way of life would be a perfect guide for survival. I guess.
