My biggest surprise of the year, since I'm on record as not being a fan of the first film. James Cameron's movie event of the year, Avatar: The Way of Water is a massive improvement over the first film. The themes of environmentalism and spirituality are better integrated into the plot and characters, the villain (all hail the great Stephen Lang) is now nuanced and complex, it's better written top-to-bottom, it's a great movie about family, the action is more effective, the world-building is more complex. It is long as hell, but for me personally the time went by in a flash. Did this movie work for you?
