Dazzling but cliche.By Yahoo! Movie User on Tue, Dec 28, 2010 1:00 PM EST
Watching Avatar is a visual treat, but don't get your hopes up for anything amazing in the plot. Some of the characters (especially the Colonel) are so cliche that I think it actually hurt my eyes to watch them. By fifteen minutes into the movie you know exactly how the story will unfold and how it will resolve, and you won't be given any real plot surprises. Worth one watch for the visuals, but don't buy a hard copy of it for sure.
