Directed by: James Cameron.
With: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Kate Winslet, Stephen Lang.
Written by James Cameron (“Avatar”), Rick Jaffa (“Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes”) and Amanda Silver (“Mulan”).
Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), today chief of the Omaticaya, lives peacefully with his wife, Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña), and their children, Neteyam (Jamie Flatters), Lo’ak (Britain Dalton) and Tuk (Trinity Jo-Li Bliss).
With them also live other children, Kiri (Sigourney Weaver), daughter of Grace Augustine, and a human boy they call Spider (Jack Champion).
This family peace is shattered when an RDA team arrives on Pandora to establish a colony.
Among them is Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang), resurrected with his avatar, who leads a team with a mission: to kill Jake Sully, whom they consider a traitor.
Thirteen years after the first “Avatar”, James Cameron released its sequel, a fantasy, family drama and adventure film that retains the same strengths and weaknesses as the previous one.
These virtues are summed up in his technical work, with an overwhelming feast of color with motion capture and CGI.
If in the first film it was a forest / jungle, here the beautician shows off for oceanic decorations with beautiful underwater images.
Prepare the desert…
Beyond the visual settings, the plot, with the invaders and the invaded and the new generation as the main axis of the conflicts, recycles motifs from the previous film, essentially protecting and fighting against a common threat, augmented with the aim of revenge and domestic problems. and integration around the main family.
The main theme of the film is the value of the family: “The Sullys are one”… and their union in the face of conflicts of another nature.
The treatment of these conflicts is very simple and Manichean, with sometimes basic adolescent struggles.
The good have no limits in their goodness: loyal, with values, coated in the myth of the “noble savage”, there is no shortage of spiritual pose, pseudo-pantheism or the key to “who is the monster really? “.. .
The villains, on the contrary, are villainous villains to the point of saying enough, although the good characterization among the latter of Stephen Lang as Quaritch should be highlighted.
There’s no shortage of the sacred-epic focus of Cameron’s products either, alternating, to no measure, theme park action and endlessly underlined melodramatic moments with self-help funds and group therapy. .
