Awesome SFX, yes, & great action near the end.
But take that away & the story etc. is rather shite. I think it would lose out a lot when not viewed in 3D on a massive screen.

So, yeah...I've just watched the Collector's Extended Cut of Avatar
on Blu-ray (first time I've watched the film since the cinema, first time I've seen the long cut), and I hereby retract all previous criticism of the film
Fucking awesome. I enjoyed it a hell of a lot more than when I saw it on the big screen (at which time although I loved the SFX I was very critical of the story and characters, possibly more due to the hype than the film itself).
9/10, and not just because of the SFX. Hell, I'd be tempted to maybe even give it 10/10, but that would put it level with The Usual Suspects and LA Confidential, two of my "reference 10s", and I didn't like it *that* much. Plus, no film that has a Leona Lewis song over the end credits can truly be worthy of a 10
10/10 for the picture and again for the sound. This is easily *the* best looking and best sounding Blu-ray Disc I have ever watched. Really is *the* reference disc. Stunning.
