I'm a 60 year old kid.
Avatar was a fantastic ride. The colors, the scenery, the characters-All were exciting and fun fun fun. With a 'smidgen' of reality mixed in to help the viewer move between worlds. With the special effect and visuals Avatar became a movie to see again and again simply for the "ride." Segourney Weaver (Grace) lends her brand of acting to the whole film. My first reaction was a flash-back to Alien etal. :) She had a ball acting in this film. A range of emotions so closely packed together gets the adrenalin to hold and mold the watcher.
Military might is not always right, and letting corporate greed dictate policy is a recipe for disaster. Sam Worthington (Jake Sully) and Zoe Saldana (Neytiri) leads the fight against the "machine" wanting the minerals of this world. It so happens, where they live is right over the mother lode. Like the rain forest of south america, bulldozing the trees and the people off their land makes the residents fight back.
