VERDICT  – 2/5

 

PROS  –
1) The epic final battle scene
2) It’s a landmark movie for the special effects used. Visually spectacular.

 

CONS  –
1) The most generic story ever written. Boring and predictable plot laden with stereotype characters.
2) If you replace Pandora with Africa, it’ll save 3 hrs. of our lives. It’s Dances with Wolves (1990) in space.
3) James Cameron is wasting the rest of his talented life making 4 sequels of this crappy movie.
