Like most of the movie going populace I was intrigued by James Cameron’s latest offering. It not only marked his first major release since the monumental award winning and box office smashing flick, Titanic, (yeah, I know he did those undersea documentaries but I’m not counting those so “nyah”) but also his return to the kingdom of sci-fantasy. This is the man that brought us The Terminator, T2: Judgment Day and Aliens. When Cameron announces he’s doing a science fiction picture it raises a whole lot of hackles on the back of a whole lot of necks.
In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Navi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture.
