Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
You can feel Cameron's anger and his passion every time a Na'vi roars. The most exhilarating moments are those when you can feel the director urging his actors to let go completely, to become furious, and to unleash hell.– Full review

Cameron's 'Avatar': Brainy & Beautiful– Full review
Giles Hardie, smh.com.au
From the music to the muse, this is clearly a James Cameron flick, clearly a masterpiece, and clearly marks a revolution in blockbusters, for if you only see one film in a 3-D cinema this year, make it Avatar.– Full review
David Edelstein, New York Magazine
The narrative would be ho-hum without the spectacle. But what spectacle! Avatar is dizzying, enveloping, vertiginous ... I ran out of adjectives an hour into its 161 minutes.– Full review
A.O. Scott, At the Movies
I had the feeling coming out of this movie that I haven't felt since maybe I was eleven years old in 1977 and I saw Star Wars for the first time.– Full review
Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
It's a remote-control movie experience, a high-tech "wish you were here" scribbled on a very expensive postcard.– Full review
Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle
The most-hyped movie of the year just about merits it.– Full review
