Jake Sully is a former Marine confined to a wheelchair. But despite his broken body, Jake is still a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light years to the human outpost on Pandora, where a corporate consortium is mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis. He is given a mission to infiltrate the Na'vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But a beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake's life -- which changes everything.
Avatar, particularly in 3D, was a stunning, beautiful film that has caused many viewers to feel that our world is drab in comparison. But aside from its visual effects and soundtrack, Avatar isn't really that groundbreaking a film, despite its record-setting box office sales. The plot is simple and grossly unoriginal, with multiple plot holes the size of Texas and only a sliver of background information. The characters are mostly one or two-dimensional, their behavior predictable based on their opening lines.
