Yup, just when you think James Cameron is just some rich weirdo who likes hangin' out in submarines he shows that he is still a storyteller. Yeah the allegory is something we're all pretty familiar with and the story is a little rudimentary but Cameron has done something not too many film makers have done and that is make compelling computer generated characters. I came into the theater a total skeptic but after a few minutes of mentally calling on the unrealness of some of the CG in the film I very quickly began finding myself caring about the characters and was immersed in the film. As for aesthetics it is one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. If you are a fan of film, concept art or even just beauty you should NOT miss this film in the theaters. Its totally worth the price of admission 3D or not.
