Avatar The Way of the Water movie review: James Cameron raises the bar for immersive to a stunning new level

Avatar The Way of the Water movie review

Avatar 2 is simply breathtaking in the scenes where it skims through the water, dives deep, rolls around joyfully, and keeps up with the amazing species that inhabit the depths.

Avatar 2 focuses on Pandora’s water

The much-anticipated sequel to 2009’s film continues the epic of Pandora. The movie also reunites viewers with Jake Sully, and Neytiri as they preserve their young family and timeless traditions. James Cameron’s vision for Avatar 2 focuses on Pandora’s waters as compared to the panoramic views of its forests. In the 2009 original movie, former marine Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) gave up his human form to merge with the Navi and battle alongside his mate Neytiri (Zoe Saldana).

However, as they say, peace never lasts for very long. The two had adapted to domesticity and begun a family. After so much time, Jake must reorganize to safeguard his family when the world of the Sullys is again in danger. As we are reintroduced to the world and the years that have passed, James rapidly plunges us back into Pandora. Old enemies resurface. A few friends are still around, and a new generation is just starting to emerge.

Introduction to new characters

As they stumble into fresh adventures, this time under the water, Jake and Neytiri’s offspring possess both their spirit and drive. The Metkayina, a new Navi clan introduced in “The Way of Water,” is headed by Tonowari (Cliff Curtis) and his wife Ronal (Kate Winslet). Changing gears from the swaying mountains and deep forests, the Metkayina way of life is tranquil. It continues to be a secure haven for the Sully family.

A new, young character tells the “refugees” that “the course of the water has no beginning or finish.” They must come to understand this lesson as the plot develops. Just as Jake did in the first film when he saw how intertwined all living things are. Jake discovered the connection between all living things in the first movie. Similarly, they must learn this lesson as the story’s events unfold. If one has not seen the first movie, the introduction of both old and new characters can be a little overwhelming because the plot builds to a huge, inevitable climax.
