Avatar Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack Review

Avatar Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack Review



Synopsis: A reluctant hero. An epic journey. A choice between the life he left behind and the incredible new world he’s learned to call home. Return to James Cameron’s Avatar — the greatest adventure of all time.

Review: Avatar is one of those films that has transcended all genre and boundry to become the highest grossing film of all-time.  James Cameron has directed some of the best action films in history, such as Aliens, T2 and Titanic.   Avatar is an agressive and ambitious look into the most cutting edge filmmaking technology.   The budget kept raising to almost a reported 500 million dollars, and the gamble paid off.

Avatar has built a following based on the technology, rather than the story.  It has been compared to everything from Dances with Wolves to Fern Gully.  I can completely see the reason for the comparisons.  Its a cute movie, but I wasn't as impressed with the graphics as some were.  Granted, I'm very picky when it comes to cgi realism, but the action was definately there.

This DVD / Blu-Ray combo pack release doesn't include anything for special features or 3D technology.  The Blu-Ray looks really great and its nice to get ahold of this huge film so quickly to own!  The report is that a special edition is coming out later this year around Xmas time.

Rating: 3D, New Technology, James Cameron, Blockbuster
