Avatar is probably the most highly anticipated movie this century. Does it deliver?
"Watching Avatar, I felt sort of the same as when I saw Star Wars in 1977."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Avatar is an overwhelming, immersive spectacle. The state-of-the-art 3D technology draws us in, but it is the vivid weirdness of Cameron’s luridly imagined tropical otherworld that keeps us fascinated. "
— Wendy Ide, Times of London
"...tone-deaf but thunderously exciting..."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The first 90 minutes of Avatar are pretty terrific — a full-immersion technological wonder with wonders to spare. The other 72 minutes, less and less terrific."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...dazzling and immersive, a ravishing techno-dream for the senses, but one that's likely to leave audiences simultaneously amazed and unmoved."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
