I don't get it. Cameron has stated that he dreamed this thing up back around 1992 but the technology just wasn't there to pull it off. Kevin Costner did this exact same story in 1990. Yeah the special effects were great. But most of the concept work was timid or laughable at best. The creatures should have been outrageous, the military vehicles amazing. But they seemed to be limp copies. Heck I flew one of those Scorpions in Unreal Tournament 2003. I mean the man spent $250 million on this thing for a rehash of Dances with Wolves?! Spend the money on some kind of new (and not predictable) plot. This was honestly my first time with 3D and I was completely unimpressed. 3D is a Hollywood push to cut down on piracy and inflate ticket prices, nothing more.
It was pretty...but stupid.
