James Cameron doesn't mess about – he had to develop whole new technologies in order to create his 3D sci-fi adventure. Sam Worthington plays space marine Jake Sully, on assignment piloting an avatar body on the alien world of Pandora. When he becomes romantically entangled with Zoe Saldana's local hunter Neytiri, he gets drawn into the conflict between the resource-hungry human mining company and Neytiri's people.
The story beats come with metronome predictability, but that's part of Cameron's genius – the plot ticks over like a well-oiled machine, and hit all the right emotional buttons. It certainly connected with audiences – Avatar broke every box office record going.
