Criticism of ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’: cinema returns in capital letters

    Water has been an element linked to James Cameron’s career. It was even in his directorial debut, which he denies, Piranha II: Vampires of the Sea, or in the scenes in the river (of blind revenge: the current that drags Avatar: The Sense of Water) of his mutilated script by Sylvester Stallone to Rambo: Cornered II. Liquid element that acquired all its meaning in Abyss, to which he now returns, locating it on the planet Pandora, and that It would show us two Camerons who did not know how to live in harmony: the builder of worlds where the human being is the cause and salvation of its destruction, and an incurable and innocent optimist in which love and kindness (alien) can do everything.. That James Cameron, the one from the aquatic fotonovela Titanic, is who in the first Avatar plunged his visual brilliance into a naive variant of Pocahontas.

    There was a fear that the sequel would plunge into ecological kitschness, and despite a couple of moments of very spirituality abyss and very in the limits of the cheesy, Avatar: The Sense of Water is fury, blood, blind revenge and a western closer to blue soldier what to Dancing with Wolves.

    Western because the hand of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, creators of the latest trilogy of Planet of the Apes, and because James Cameron does not need anything more than a scene with a death and an eclipse to leave everything said about the twilight.

    Avatar: The Sense of Water not only abracadabrante cinema-spectacle. It is the return of a major filmmaker who always insisted on building cathedrals towards perfection. Here he leaves us speechless with about 95 continuous minutes that culminates with the marines of aliens: the return and family in danger Risky lies on the edge of the impossible in a titanic sinking in flames while the blind idea of ​​violence as the ultimate meaning of love lives in that chaos alien to everything. It also allows hope to emerge, that of the most humanistic and childish James Cameron, along with forgiveness that opens the door to continuation.

    To prodigal sons of the best and back James Cameron

    The best: the amazing sequence of the hunt for the tulkun.

    The worst: that fondness for a pocket pantheism.
