The story, set in the year 2154, involves a mission by U. S. Armed Forces to an earth-sized moon in orbit around a massive star. This new world, Pandora, is a rich source of a mineral Earth desperately needs. Pandora represents not even a remote threat to Earth, but we nevertheless send in ex-military mercenaries to attack and conquer them. Gung-ho warriors employ machine guns and pilot armored hover ships on bombing runs. I think we are likely to find this an allegory about contemporary politics.
No sooner did I watch this movie, I deeply believed that it was just better than I had expected. "Avatar" is not simply a sensational entertainment, but It has a flat-out Green and anti-war message which are touching our daily life closely. For instance, the story tries to remind us of the importance of respecting the earth and even the whole Mother Nature, those messages can undoubtedly overwhelm me. Besides, I extremely appreciate the content of the story. Let's take the experience from jake - the main character as an example. Jake is a disabled ex-Marine, he simply cannot walk, run and even jump, the most deplorable truth is that his life is confined to a wheelchair. In contrast, he can fight with beastly monster creatures and ride dragon bird on that new world. Consequently, there is an obvious contradiction on whether he should stay on that world and become part of the resistance force against U.S Army or not. This remarkable arrangement and circumstance really impress me most as it can successfully provide a wide space for audience to discuss and think over the messages behind.
To be frank, I think the movie is excellent on different aspects. Not only does It give me a new experience on those pretty graphics but also convey meaningful message to us. So, I would like to say Avatar is most likely the best film ever.
