9.8 · The most-hyped movie of the year just about merits it.
It doesn’t take long for you to realize just how different Avatar is from anything you’ve ever seen. The opening scene shows Marine grunt Jake Sully waking from suspended animation into zero gravity, and the “camera,” as it were — you spend a lot of time in this film wondering whether something was shot with a camera or just created from whole computer cloth — is handheld, floating and completely disorienting. It’s an entirely new experience, not just for 3-D, but for movies in general: You’re thrown in the middle of a scene, with no understanding of perspective, space constraints or even fundamental narrative. You are, in the most basic way, in the movie. It took me 20 seconds or so just to orient myself. This is still a movie, right? It took me another minute-and-a-half to pull my jaw up off the floor.
