I went to see Avatar on Friday night with 4 of my kids.
If you haven't already seen it and like fantasy type movies do go and see it - it is amazing to be honest.
The 3D is easily the best I have ever seen. Visually the movie is simply stunning from start to finish.
The storyline is also very good, this along with some amazing acting from nearly everybody in the movie - all around brilliant.
I would give Avatar 9/10 - only drops a point as the cinema (Loughborough) was pretty crap.

Anybody else got any comments?

Went and saw it at IMAX on Sat night, well worth seeing, but the image quality was a little fuzzy in 3D, might have been the huge screen, or might have been the 3D itself, it looked rather low def to me, on bluray it will be stunning.

Storyline was ok, no real twists or turns, you could kinda guess the whole story line after the 1st half hour, well worth a look but its not the modern classic some movie reviewers think it is, without the effects it would be a middle of the road film.

I saw it yesterday, and was mightily impressed, kids both loved it, and sat glued, even though it's a pretty long film (in excess of 2hrs 30mins).

Certainly went some way to blurring the lines between live action and CGI !! 3D was very subtle, and gave the some of the scenery great depth, without all of the over the top 3D effects.

Well Done James Cameron of Terminator 2 fame, wasnt impressed by Titanic
I saw it in real 3D, and it is absolutely amazing it's mind blowing :)
it may be a long film, but i gaurantee you'll be so ingrossed.
