‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ Review: James Cameron’s Inexcusable Narrative

It’s been 13 years and multiple technological advancements since our introduction to James Cameron’s multi-billion dollar blockbuster Avatar, where we were introduced to the humanoid blue aliens called the Na’vi who inhabit a similar-ish looking planet Earth named Pandora. We followed the paraplegic marine Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) as he learned via his avatar to live amongst the alien tribe and learn to become one of them.

Cameron took a decade for his follow-up citing that one of the reasons was that he needed to invest in new underwater technology to be able to film his subsequent sequels. After such a long time since our last trip to Pandora, and seeing how the blockbuster landscape has shifted so much? Perhaps in terms of the technological leaps it provides, it might be worth it, but it’s borderline inexcusable in terms of its narrative.
