But you are right, people shouldn't review movies they haven't seen. I made the mistake of buying the DVD of Avatar at my wife's request, and have suffered through it numerous times. Do you think someone who hated the first film, as well as virtually everything in that genre, might like the second one?
But based on comments even here, I suspect many of the detractors have seen neither. I detect an air of elitism in many of the comments.
But yeah, if you didn't like the first one you won't like this one either. Although there are some new twists, much of it rehashes situations and scenes from the previous film . . . Much the way "Top Gun: Maverick" did with "Top Gun". Seems overall that "Way of Water" prepares us for the sequels to come, sequels that probably begin offloading original cast for a newer, younger cast. The virtual 3D world Cameron creates for us is spectacular, immersive and totally escapist. I can't imagine anywhere near the big screen experience on a home theater screen. But the story is environmentally and politically preachy and the thing is over long @~ 3:20. In spite of this I liked it and might see it again.
If it is because one does not like the creatures with tails then chances of liking the second is remote.It can also be due to the war all that action, the whole concept of not being allowed to occupy another land et al then no hope of liking the second. I love them.
