Avatar's story is the standard Dances with Wolves plot line yet rife with some unneeded complications involving its setup. It's acting is either bland or way over the top which go along with the bland or over the top characters. This should leave the all important part of the film which should be the visuals. The film though is actually oddly ugly, that cinematography win might the worst in the category, and the environment really never feels particularly imaginative. The film doesn't succeed in even what seemed to be its point, and for me that makes it an utter failure.
