Screw the haters.
People who argue that this movie is not cerebral enough, or borrows too heavily on previous movies should have known what to expect from Cameron's previous efforts. It's like complaining that a Bond movie is not cerebral enough. You didn't really expect Citizen Kane when you went in anyway, did ya?
It is a step forward in 3D and CGI performance, that much is sure.
This movie is no more plageristic than a majority of "blockbuster" movies.
Is this movie the second coming of Christ? No.
Did I have a really good time watching it? Yes.
It really reminded me of what it felt like to be back in the 80's watching a summer hit movie.
Edit: Just wanted to add this comment. This movie in many ways epitomizes modern film making, which is to say the focus is completely on business, and art as a distant second. This is the type of thing that Cameron understands really well. But you all knew that when you entered the theatre anyway, so I stand by my rating, because whether or not this movie has a soul is irrelevant. I knew what I was getting into, and I was entertained.
