Avatar: Summary and Analysis

Updated on April 18, 2012

Jake Sully is a combat marine who has been injured in battle. As a result, he’s a paraplegic. The VA doesn’t have enough money to repair his legs, so he’s in a wheelchair. After his twin brother is killed, Jake takes his place in a project on Pandora, a distant planet. Earthlings need a rare mineral found there in order to solve the humans’ energy crisis.

Pandora is a hostile environment for humans. The air is toxic, and the wilderness is filled with prehistoric-like savage beasts. Scientists have taken the DNA from the indigenous Pandorans, humanoids called the Na’vi, and combined it with human DNA to create avatars. These avatars can then be controlled by the humans in the quest for the rare mineral.

Jake is seduced by the evil Colonel Quaritch to infiltrate the Na’vi in exchange for an operation on his legs. Jake agrees, but he soon finds himself indebted to a beautiful member of the Na’vi tribe, Neytiri, who saves his life. After Jake falls in love with Neytiri and is indoctrinated into the tribe, his outlook changes. He wants to remain in his avatar persona and protect the people from the annihilation the colonel has planned.

I found this movie to be very entertaining. It’s a wonderful mixture of the past, the present, and the future. For example, many of the creatures on Pandora are futuristic yet prehistoric. The special effects are amazing! This is one you simply must see on the big screen and in 3D at least once. After that, you’ll want to re-watch it at home!

The film contains several examples of social commentary. The fact that the VA has run out of funding could easily be interpreted as a comment on our present economic downturn. The rare mineral needed for energy could represent oil, and the primitive Na’vi could stand for citizens of third world nations who have resources needed by more advanced countries.

The movie could also represent the historical conquest of Native Americans by whites. In fact, this is entirely plausible. One sub-group of Na’vi are called the plains people, and they, like the Plains Indians, are skilled horsemen and warriors. Also, the Na’vi culture is much like that of the Native Americans. They are children of the land, they’re hunters, and they have a deep respect for Nature. Even their dress, their weapons, and their use of “war paint” is much the same.

The climax of the plot is the traditional epic battle of good versus evil. You’ll find yourself cheering for the Na’vi as they fight against almost insurmountable odds in an effort to protect their homeland and their culture.

The scenery in the movie is spectacular, with mountains, waterfalls, and jungle foliage – interspersed with fantastical plants and creatures that will both entertain and amaze viewers. Even if you don’t especially care for science fiction or fantasy, you’ll enjoy this film. The action drags a little in parts – especially at the beginning. After that, however, hang on to your seat! The 3D is so realistic that at times you’ll find yourself ducking or reaching out to feel a falling leaf or seed pod.

Avatar was nominated for four Golden Globe awards, including Best Director, Best Picture (drama), Best Original Score, and Best Original Song. It has also been nominated for nine Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards, including Best Action Movie, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Editing, Best Makeup, Best Picture, Best Sound, and Best Visual Effects.

The movie is rated PG-13, for language and violence, although it lacks real blood and gore. Really graphic violence is absent, so I feel that it would be fine for viewers younger than 13, other than the small amount of explicit language used.

      I went to see it last week but I showed up for the 3D rather that the regular version of the movie. I don't think I could take 3 hours of 3D - plan to see it this weekend!

      I was just telling my wife I would take her to see this. She is a Sci-Fi nut. She declined. I spoke with some neighbotr girls today at a little party and they said they really liked it, but I need go to Cleveland for the 3D since it is best. Our modern theater doesn't have the technology yet for the 3D or Imax. bummer. I suppose Canton would do but I am not traveling out of town for any movie. Don't know if the wife will change her mind or not, she is down with the flu and was feeling rotten when I told her. Thanks superstar Habee.

      Habee - great review I hoped someone would write about it in the way you have. I am not a regular fim watcher and thought the 3D might be overpowering but I loved it. It did not seem like three hours had passed. Obviously it was the 'pretty effects of flowers and trees' that I liked better than the fighting but it is one film I would not mind seeing again. Well done habee.

      It was a great movie and three hours went so quickly. It's probably the first time I didn't get bored with such a long movie. The curious case of benjamin button didn't work for me, I go bored very quickly. But this movie was really great.

      Really enjoyed the visuals in this movie and 3D is definitely the way to go. Some of the flight sequences are truly breathtaking!! Definitely agree with your comparison to the Native Americans and I thought it mirrored the story in Dances with Wolves too closely to be honest. In actuality the main thing that marred this movie for me was its story as it didn't really introduce anything new to the genre.

      Hey Haybee...Nice review. Definitly a must see movie on the big screen in 3D.I really enjoyed Avatar, even though the story has been told many times.Dances with Wolves,Last Samurai,etc...I don't care how many times they do it, it's still enjoyable.Although it would be nice if the next time it wasn't the "Great White Hope" angle.

      Even with all the controversey around it, I must say the cinematography and special effects and 3D made it amazing and fun. You are right, I was rooting for the Navi at the end of the movie.

      It was a long movie, but there wasn't a dull moment. I definitely gave it 2 thumbs up!

      As you said the scenery is fantastic and I was taking everything in my stride getting into the plot, until someone threw a gas canister and I ducked, I had to laugh.

      Hi Habee.

      What a great film.I would even say epic!

      Apparently the film has been played to some Amazonian Indians

      who have said that it is a reflection of what is happening to them.

      We need to see it as more than a film i believe but as an important message.From indigenous peoples and from the earth

      I loved the movie and loved your hub. Brought back some great movie memories.

      I might just point out that, though Pandora is a "distant" planet as you point out, this fictional world is in the very real "next-door neighboring" system, Alpha Centauri. This three-sun system is not visible from Georgia, but I've had the pleasure of seeing it after having moved to the Philippines. Maybe one day we'll have the technology to go there, and hopefully we will have learned the right lessons from James Cameron's beautiful movie.

      At 1st I thought that they were making a big deal out of it but everybody at my school was talkin about it and u know, u don't want to be left out so I asked my dad if we could get it and we bought it and I watched it in my movie theater in my basement and I only saw like 30 minutes but it was awesome

      I really enjoyed it

      You know habee - I had no desire to see this movie and my mom bought it and dropped it off to me the other day and of course I literally did not blink once through it. I was amazed and in love with it and so disappointed that I didn't get to see it in the theater. What a phenomenal movie. I may watch it again sometime this weekend before I have to give it back. Great hub!!!

      what to say.... LOL. I liked it. not wowed, or awed. and I really dont like Directors who slide in their personal political opinions into a non Politicial movie. that aside.

      the effects were great. it did have some of the best CGI ive seen and it was fun. I have to admit Im not a fan of 3d. so I saw it the old fashioned way.

      and I watched it sure I wasn't going to like it LOL

      You see, when I watch a movie, I like PLOT. Sorry. Avatar just doesn't do it for me. I saw it in 3D on the big screen. The effects were SO inferior to that in Alice in Wonderland. And I think that EVERYONE was reminded of the Natives and their invasion. Want to watch a movie with the same message, but a good story? Disney's Pocahontas is just for you!

      I wasn't crazy about Titanic either. It came across like, "It's the most epic romance, truest of true loves! Oh, and by the way, they were on a boat and it sank." I couldn't get into Titanic. It's just like, okay, what ever. It's just not fair that they didn't make it more historical. The TITLE is Titanic!!!

      All in all, I think that directors like Tim Burton deserve more than James Cameron. Tim Burton is just too awesome. Glad you enjoyed. One expensive movie! Good you didn't waste your money.

      Was watching again on DVD, I think the rating is for, not the type of violence, but the intensity of said situations and combat. They will do that if the battle is a little too hard-edged.

      I thought avatar was a WONDERFUL movie.they so should so make

      a 2nd one and a 3rd lol seriously.I so should give them a heads up

      for having AMAZING special effects,costumes,acting,a wonderful dire

      ctor.I wish I could so be an AVATAR!!!!!!!!it was that cool I thought

      it was kinda sad when Tsu, tey had fallen off the plane and died

      maybe he didn't die maybe he just got shot and fell of the plane

      and how they slide off the GIANT leaves maybe he did that.In the

      2nd one maybe they will find him and will get doctors.I hope that

      they find him he was sweet when he wasn't upset sometimes lol.

      It was sad watching all of the other avatars die though and the

      animals and I liked watching the white ppl die though because

      they were EVIL!!!:(I loved it when eway or what her name was

      the very pure spirits when natirie yelled eway has heard you!!!:):)

      And when the avatars had WON!!!!!:)YYYYAAAAYYYY:);)!!!!!!!!!!!

      And how natirie had told Jake that(I see u and he said I see u

      to"!:)so sweet!!!!!!!!!:):):)and it made me cry because I was so

      freaking happy because they are such a cute couple and that she

      was so much bigger than him lol:):0:plol!!!!:)and how he came to

      life at the end and he opened his eyes and that's what got me

      so excited and that why I watched that movie over and over and

      over again!!!!!:):pSo they need to make a 2nd And 3rd one I can't

      can't wait any longer so hurry up and make on lol:) jk but seriously

      I can't wait any longer or I'm gonna die:):)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol lol lol:)
