A paraplegic marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home.

I felt I was back to a funfair as a child. The film is certainly a technical masterpiece being fully rendered and mocaped. It shows the direction where movies are going (soon anybody can in fact act as Bruce Willis or Johnny Depp ...).

Annoying was - although well done - the brute force way of showing off a different world by animals having four eyes and arms. Although in the little monkeys' case they could actually make sense, it was in the all the other cases not plausible to me why on Earth - I mean why on Pandora - Eowa would produce running animals which four arms or eyes. I kept thinking about that instead of watching and enjoying the movie. I think I would have chosen animals who could bend into a circle and thus move/roll.

Awesome was the idea of the USB-stick in the braid.


Watch the extended 2010 version.

My precious!

Andy Serkis is the to-go person if it comes to animating creatures, it seems. Good luck the crew integrated him into the movie. Imagine they had kept him as on set placeholder only! Also the other cast and settings were believabaly great. Christopher Lee as Saruman, wow!

What a huge and great effort. No wonder Peter Jackson gained so much weight ;)

He is good news. (Judi Dench)
James Blond, well, who says hair color is the only important thing in the world? The rest of Craig makes more than up for it. The producers take such good care of the franchise by always finding new ways and taking an unexpected turn for the better. After having milked the smooth Brosnan enough (I had enough of the world when I saw the "invisible" car) they made a great choice with Craig and delivered a raw sequel unlike any other.

The sequel however suffered from Kuryenkos survival and Arterton's too soon death. I personally would have switched their roles. So I take it as an advantage that that movie was not too long.

Another great CG work, and Smith in a serious role is not bad, too. The theatrical ending was much better than the "alternative" one.

Although i thought that setting up a note with the address would have been much smarter than actually showing up at the water front personally every day. Well, maybe I should not question logics in an apocalyptic zombie movie.

Votes: 770,554 | Gross: $318.41M

Downey is back!. Although he never actually disappeared from the big screen This (and S.H) is his first mega hit after a longer period of rehab hopping, as far as I know. I never read any Iron man comics because I had enough of rich dude/super hero stories following Batman. Nonetheless after some hesitation I watched one of the last shows in our local theater. This one is really entertaining and funny, and Downey always has a self Ironic attitude.

Although Cheadle is the bigger name for the second movie Terrence Howard did a pretty good job, too, and I got used to his face.

Mickey Rourke in the sequel is awesome, and Paltrow, too.

Bonham-Carter in the Ape costume was actually very emotional in the previous 2002 ape film.

Nothing though compared to Serkis in front of the green screen. A really great development depicted from the first aggressive strains and successes to uttering the first "n" sound in "no", which is one of the many distinctions between mankind and animals, and the riot.

Good monkey business, and I am expecting a similar sequel.
