It was over a decade since James Cameron last directed a feature film. Was it worth the wait?
I will not say that Avatar will go down as the best of James Cameron's films, I still thought that it was very good. If nothing else, it was visually spectacular and it definitely needs to be seen in IMAX 3D to get the full effect.
The 3D effects in the film are definitely the least gimmicky 3D effects I have ever seen in a film. It comes off more as an added bonus, rather than something that must be there to truly enjoy the film.
It was definitely a good experience.
