Avatar trailer: Water stream
Avatar: The Way of Water (Avatar: Flowing Water) surpasses all other blockbusters for one thing: If the visual effects of other movies were just enough to show audiences a virtual world, Avatar 2 pulled them. enter. Entering that world with realistic visual effects and highly detailed built ecosystem is almost a dream in real life.
3 hours and 10 minutes watching a movie is the time when viewers are immersed in that dream. Have a good dream. The article reveals a small part of the content of the movie.
The story is simple but full of spirituality
When he released Avatar 2, James Cameron said in advance that his taste was very popular, the story he liked, the audience would also like.
And to make a movie geared towards $2-3 billion in revenue, the story has to be universal and empathetic to millions of viewers. So it’s completely understandable that Avatar 2 has a simple plot.

The film follows the hero from Earth, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his brave Navi wife, Neytiri (Zoe Saldana). They live happily with their cubs in Pandora, when old enemies return from Earth, still clinging to their conquest.
Only thing, now the opponent still has a tall, human-shaped Navi with outstanding strength.
Jake and Neytiri with their children and the people of Metkayina – where they take refuge – experience countless bloody encounters with enemies to protect the planet they hold dear. Their battle this time took place under the ocean, accompanied by countless eye-catching scenes.
Despite the simple plot, Avatar 2 is deeply meditative. The film adds spirituality to each scene, adding “soul” to each character. As with season one, many scenes in season two play out like a sacred ritual.

That’s when the humans of Jake’s forest got used to the ocean, when Reya taught Lo’ak to breathe like meditation to swim in the ocean floor, when the whole tribe of Metkayina rushed to the sea to welcome the return of tulkun, when Lo”s son Lo’ ak tells Jake about the water, when his daughter Kiri connects with the goddess Eywa…
It’s all meditative, showing that the filmmakers value every shot, just as the people of Pandora appreciate everything.
Simple plot, simple characters
In today’s divided world, cinema is no exception. Avatar 2 – an American product – did not hit theaters in Russia. For reference, Avatar 1 earned $116 million from Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), a substantial amount.
One positive sign is that Avatar 2 has hit theaters and has gone viral in China, a country that has turned down many Hollywood blockbusters over the past few years due to ethnic and gender stereotypes.

James Cameron still builds the world in Avatar 2 with 2 factions good and evil, both very pure, with very little diversity and division. One side is pure good and the other side is pure evil.
The forest people Omaticaya and the sea people Metkayina on the planet Pandora both have faith in Mother Nature (God Eywa) in a very pure and admirable way. They love and harmonize with all things, cherishing every tree, every blade of grass, every star. They consider tulkuns (whale-like creatures on Earth) as soulmates.
This is so precious and beautiful as a dream, which is also why many Avatar viewers have wished to live on the planet Pandora. Could imagining living with such a pure-hearted indigenous community be a salvation for anyone weary of this complicated world?
But Omaticaya and Metkayina value community to the maximum, the patriarchal husband and wife have the ultimate power and voice. This risks stifling diversity and disapproving of different voices, even though young people here are slowly maturing and starting to see life differently from their parents.
For example, Lo’ak, Jake and Neytiri’s second son, was frustrated when no one heard his distinct voice.

What about the evil side, the Earthlings? They also have an unbelievable lack of diversity. Almost all of the Earthlings in the film are evil and steadfast in their goal of invading and conquering the planet Pandora, including the non-military tulkun hunters.
With such a simple philosophy and goal, using only bloodlust and hatred as a springboard, can Earthlings be a really strong opponent?
Besides, Avatar 2 also reveals in a simple depiction of colonialism and indigenous culture. With a sci-fi film, these elements are not demanding, but if the film offers a more thorough interpretation, it will attract more discussion and elevate itself.
Anyway, with Avatar 2, James Cameron has once again rekindled the previous desire of Christopher Nolan or Tom Cruise, in making movies that must be seen in theaters to fully feel the emotions.

The sacredness of water
“The water has no beginning and no end”, “The water is around us and within us” are vague spiritual lines, like repeated mantras. . It is not only the flow, it is also the philosophy of water, the way of water, the wisdom of water – the origin of life.
The meaning of the sayings is not too difficult to deduce: water and people are one, water flows endlessly between life and death… But it’s better to keep these sayings in the mist of dreams, for the sake of the movie itself. is the travel dream of man. Pandora.
