JPod and Drezner are justly snarky concerning the vast amounts of stupid contained in this movie, so this review is outsourced to them. I suppose I should add that I find it hysterical that (a) someone felt that the 1,642,859th movie based on the concept of the noble savage really needed to be made; (2) “shock and awe” and daisycutters should still be part of the lingo in 2154 (what, did the military not develop stronger ordnance since the beginnings of the 21st Century?); and (3) traitors to the Na’vi can get back on the Na’vi’s good side–and win back the girl!–by coming back to town on a kick-a** ride.

“King of the world”? Feh.
