Once more, I’m sooooo far behind the times. 🙂
The special effects are amazing, and it was very easy for me to feel like that world was entirely real. I enjoyed that immensely.
Sigourney Weaver is fun as well. I always get a kick that she seems to be type cast as a space babe. Her best role in that type was in the film Galaxy Quest, but this was equally enjoyable. There was something nice and truly expected about seeing her pop up on screen.
Uh… James Cameron? I’m of two minds on this one. On one hand, his vision is what created this world that is so interesting and incredible to watch. On the other hand, his vision was the stilted mind that came up with a weak plot, cheap deliveries, and utterly predictable story lines. I just have to wonder what the film would have been like with Peter Jackson at the helm.
There is some language as well, and it runs a little long. Okay, it’s 2.5 hours, but it feels like 3 or 4.
Courtney did not really care for it. I enjoyed it. If we averaged our ratings, we’d probably end up with 2.5 stars, and that seems fair.
Note: I’d do a more indepth review, but since everyone and their dog has already seen it….
