EJ Moreno with a video review of Avatar: The Way of Water…
James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water is the film version of that beautiful person with no personality. Avatar 2 tries to say and do a lot but comes off as a striking shell for a lackluster core.
The spectacle is there, and the violence is impressive, but this Avatar sequel doubles down on most of the plot issues from the first film and rehashes far too much to feel like a worthwhile experience.
