Movie Review: Avatar – The Way of Water



Jake Sully lives with his newfound family formed on the extrasolar moon Pandora. Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their home.


  • Stunning visuals, attention to detail, and the care put into special effects were exceptional. The 3D effects were top-notch.
  • Great performances by the entire cast.


  • The introduction of characters and explanation of the first movie’s conclusion could have been better executed in the sequel. Viewers who are not familiar with the original Avatar film may find themselves disoriented at the start of the movie.


Jake Sully: I know one thing: wherever we go, this family… is our fortress.

Tsireya: [to Lo’ak] The way of water has no beginning and no end. Our hearts beat in the womb of the world. The sea is your home, before your birth and after your death. The sea gives and the sea takes. Water connects all things: life to death, darkness to light.


After years of anticipation, Avatar 2 has finally arrived and it exceeded all expectations. The film’s breathtaking visuals and impressive sound design immediately captured the attention of viewers. Clocking in at 192 minutes, the pacing is impeccable, making it one of the best-paced three-hour movies ever seen. The underwater scenes were especially breathtaking, providing a fresh and exciting look at the world of Pandora.

The attention to detail and care put into the special effects make Avatar 2 a true masterpiece. The 3D is top-notch, and it outshines any other $100 million-plus movie that has come out in recent years. The story is less predictable than the first movie, which some viewers will appreciate. Although the child characters and action scenes may remind some of James Cameron’s other films, they fit perfectly into the world of Avatar.

Although Avatar 2 could have executed the introduction of characters and explanation of the first movie’s conclusion better, the movie’s minor issues were barely noticeable in light of its overwhelming strengths. Overall, Avatar 2 is highly recommended to anyone looking for an epic adventure with stunning visuals and a captivating story. After a long wait, it is great to finally see a blockbuster of this caliber again.
