I’m not wowed by the movie, but I wasn’t disappointed. I can’t see the movie in 3D until Wednesday. I’ll update my review afterward to speak to the 3D quality. But based in what I saw, I’ll bet it’s pretty stunning.
I enjoyed the dynamic that the child characters added. Specifically, Kiri, voiced by Sigourney Weaver. Kiri’s mysterious connection to Eywa provided some near-magical moments. I suspect that will be a much bigger theme in the next movie or two. Speaking of which, Weaver did a masterful job of sounding like a young girl and only sounding like Grace when she was angry.
The plot in Avatar: The Way of Water is too much of a rehash of the original movie. It feels uncreative. I was expecting better from James Cameron given that he had nearly a decade to think about the story. My hope is that Avatar: The Way of Water is being treated as the first movie in a trilogy and we can really move the plot forward in the next movie instead of just making this one long epic battle between Pandora and the sky people. If it were up to me I’d end the trilogy with Sully returning to earth with a small piece of Eywa to help save the planet. I think that would be the most satisfying ending to this trilogy. I just hope James Cameron has the creativity and boldness to attempt it.
About The Peetimes: I’m pretty happy with the Peetimes I found. There are three that I would recommend and they are spaced out nicely in the movie. The other two Peetimes aren’t horrible, but I’d recommend avoiding them if your bladder permits it. I think the fourth Peetime is the best of all and it’s also an alert Peetime due to a scene with animal cruelty.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Avatar: The Way of Water.
