Avatar: Collector's Edition: Blu Ray Review

Avatar: Collector's Edition: Blu Ray Review

Avatar - Collector's Edition

Rating: M
Released by Roadshow Home Entertainment

One year after it hit the cinemas and shook the box office of all its cash, and on the heels of its own DVD release, comes this collector's extended edition of Avatar.

James Cameron's film's already been critiqued by many as the amazing effects/ shoddy plot so what's the point of this release?

Well, with an extended opening plus extra footage within the film, it serves to extend and enrich the visit to Pandora - with three versions of the film making up one disc and the other two devoted to extras (including docos and deleted scenes), there's certainly much to enjoy on the set (even if you're not blown away by the story of the film).

Avatar's collector's edition is essential viewing as it really does go a long way to build the experience of what went into the cinematic phenomenon - and with two other films on the way, it's clearly only just the beginning. Sure, it's not the most perfect film ever, but for spectacle (and in clear HD) it really is impressive.

Rating: 7/10
