After 10 years, one of the most-grossing movies of all time returned to the big screen with a sequel. This sequel is “Avatar: The Way of the Water.”

This movie takes place years after the first. It opens with the protagonist Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), his wife Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and their four kids. They live a peaceful life as they raise their children. One day, the military attacks their village where Jake sees an old enemy who is out for revenge. Jake and his family are forced to flee to a water tribe village and hide. Due to Jake’s title as chief of his tribe, he and his family were welcomed. Jake’s son, Neteyam (Jamie Flatter), who was often seen as a troublemaker, did not get along with the water tribe boys. The water tribe boy would pick on him and mistreat him. They eventually were found in the water tribe village and were forced to fight. This leads to a vicious battle between the Na’vi and humans.

This movie was very long. It was three hours long and almost felt as if it was two movies combined in one. It felt as if it hit its climax multiple times. There was even a time when it felt like the movie was ending, but it wasn’t.

It was really cool to see the water tribe. Until now, it was assumed that there was only one type of Na’vi, but it turns out there are way more. The water Na’vi and the jungle Na’vi are completely different. Water Na’vi excel in swimming whereas jungle Na’vi excel in climbing.

Overall, this movie was very good; it deserves a rating of 8/10. This was a great sequel to a great movie. It was very plot driven though sometimes it could be predictable. Everyone should watch it.
