AVATAR 2 looks..

by James Murphy

Dull. Boring. Wet.

I know. Blasphemy. But I cannot see how or why this belated sequel will be a hit. The first film did brilliantly at both box office and commercial levels because of technical innovation and novelty. For a decade thereafter, every blockbuster was 3-D, and nowhere near the level that AVATAR achieved.

So. Yes, no doubt, we will all flock to see AVATAR 2: WAY OF WATER. Butt whyyyyyy? There is little to anything else on at the pictures then, I suspect. ZERO COMPETITION! And yes. It may well be an immersive experience in every sense, too.

But as a trailer? This sucks and sinks. Badly. The usual Jim Cameron double standard of eco message via big blazing gunfire power. The plot, such as it is is unclear and meandering. There is little to any surprise or shock value here, in visuals or otherwise.

And after Cameron endorsed THAT SHIT TERMINATOR film, a while back? Nah. I cannot take his cinematic vision seriously. Especially when he has been seen dissing comic book movies, despite his being a founding father of that genre in a way (his unmade SPIDER-MAN?).

Anyway. Watch. See. Or is that sea?!

RELEASED IN DECEMBER.
