AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER (2022) Review
Directed by James Cameron
If there’s one thing that is sure in all of James Cameron’s films, it is the grandness of the scope. It’s the very thing that’s constant in all of his movies. And that’s because he wants his films to be experiential, either it’s big visually or emotionally, either way, you know you’ll get your money and time’s worth.
Cameron’s sequel to his acclaimed and box-office hit Avatar, Avatar: The Way of Water is visually breathtaking. Seeing it in IMAX 3D, Cameron reminds us why we love going to the theaters and watching movies on the big screen. It is big in scope but emotionally, the film chooses to hit something close to home, which is family.
It’s long. You’ll feel the length at times because the story overstays its visuals but it’s not to a point that you become bored or need to complain because you really can’t deny the marvel the visuals offer. But that’s the thing, James Cameron’s biggest film so far is a visual marvel. Wherever the film takes you in Pandora, you’ll just drop your jaws with how everything is presented.
Everything here, except maybe for the action sequences, is an improvement over the first Avatar movie.
