On Tuesday, Avatar: The Way of Water was shown for the first time to select members of the press in conjunction with the film's premiere in London.
After James Cameron's first record-breaking epic premiered 13 years ago, the Avatar sequel has finally been released, and if the early reviews are any indication, fans will feel that the wait was well worth it.
David Ehrlich, chief film critic for IndieWire, said the following on his Twitter account: "lol imagine being foolish enough to gamble against James Cameron. or adolescent extraterrestrial Sigourney Weaver. or papyrus with enormous whales as the subtitling. It is certainly one of the finest theatrical experiences in recent memory and is light years better than the previous one. streaming was discovered to have died in a ditch.
Mike Ryan, a journalist at Uproxx, gushed over James Cameron, saying, "Yeah, never bet against James Cameron. I'm trying to avoid using exaggeration, but from a purely technical and aesthetic point of view, I've never seen anything quite like this before. It's more than I can handle. Possibly too much to take in. When I should have been paying attention to the story, I'd be fixated on the Pandora fish instead.
Josh Horowitz, presenter of Happy Sad Confused, wrote the following: "James Cameron once again demonstrates to filmmakers how it's done. I must have repeated myself a thousand times. Never distrust him. Avatar: The Way of Water is a shining example of how to make an epic movie. "as large as movies can get, both emotionally and physically,"
"I had trust that James Cameron would raise the bar with the effects, but these sights are mind-blowing," Collider's Peri Nemiroff remarked. "I had faith that James Cameron would raise the bar with the visuals." "Each breathtaking image that follows the last."
On the other hand, there was at least one person who wasn't very enthusiastic about it, and his name is Peter Bradshaw from The Guardian. Contrary to popular opinion, Bradshaw tweeted the following about Avatar: The Way of Water: "Avatar: The Way of Water is a dumb, mushy, motion-smoothed epic of solemnity without a single fascinating visual picture."
On the other side, there was at least one person who was not really enthused about it, and the name of that individual is Peter Bradshaw from The Guardian. Bradshaw tweeted the following about Avatar: The Way of Water, which runs counter to the general consensus: "Avatar: The Way of Water is a stupid, mushy, motion-smoothed epic of solemnity without a single intriguing visual image."
A few days after the initial review of the picture was given by Guillermo Del Toro, winner of an Academy Award for Best Director, the first wave of responses has been received.
After seeing it for the first time a month ago, the Spanish director referred to Avatar: The Way of Water as "a remarkable accomplishment."
He wrote, "It is chockfull of breathtaking vistas and emotions at an epic, epic scale," and he referred to Cameron as "a maestro at the pinnacle of his abilities."
Reportedly one of the three most costly films ever made, the movie has a running duration of three hours and ten minutes and is one of the most expensive films ever made.
It will recount the narrative of the Sully family, covering a wide range of topics, such as "the peril that accompanies them, the lengths they take to keep each other safe, the fights they fight to remain alive, and the tragedies they experience."
Cameron has said that he intends to produce one sequel to Avatar every other year between now and 2028. The first of these planned sequels is titled The Way of Water.
On December 16th, you can see it in theatres around the country — in 3D!
