Review –

There are a lot of highlights and meaningful scenes in this movie, from the tensional atmosphere that humans with high and legendary weapons are trying to find out and kill Jack, who betrayed human-team to live with avatars, turn into excited and tough that how Jack and his family are seeking another habitable place to live in, there are many hard times they have to go over, etc. It all made my mood keep going up and down.

The most impressive of all is when Jack and Quaritch are fighting and trying to kill each other, it seems like a conflict between them but actually it also symbolizes the relationship between humans and our natures if you look in deeper. Just like how much harm humans bring to the natural environment.

My favorite scene is when I saw they put Neteyam’s body back into the soul tree, which is sad but also represented he’s back to the place which he come from and giving himself return to nature.

We can see the dark of the war and also all the sadness and devastation after the war, there’s no benefit to anyone, either the one who started it or another, the only things that come with it are just the sadness of losing family and friends, losing home, losing people. The way we treat our nature is kinda like a war, greedy merchants never stop snatching resources, which must trigger the counterattack of the nature one day.
