Avatar is the epic story about a satelite in orbit of Polyphemus, one of three gas giants that orbit Alpha Centauri A. The year is 2154, and earth has started a connection of organism of other planet, the story start from Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) whose his brother died from a robbery, and offered on the Avatar program, Sully was paralyzed from the waist down from combat (Jake Sully is Marine) he was offered if he’s coming on the program, his paralyzed will be healed.
After reaching planet Pandora, he was asked to controlling the Avatar, a body of the living human at planet Pandora called Na’vi. Jake mission is to research and adapt the living on planet Pandora, and negotiate them to move so Earth can extract the valuable mineral that worth a kilo about 20 Million US$.
Sully was willing to do the project, and to the sync with the Avatar. On the Avatar body Sully can walk, and do the things like Na’vi can. On the middle of research, Sully was separated from his team, and met the primitive on Pandora, a girl named Neytiri. Neytiri realized that Sully was a chosen one from the god of the planet. Neytiri introduce Sully to the whole tribe. First the tribe not trust Sully as he come to their tribe. Thus makes Sully to learn to living there before he can be accepted to the Tribe.

Sully introduced by many things that was dangerous but exciting. He learn the language of the Tribe too, and many thing, as finally he become a man at the Tribe.

As Sully times up at the Pandora, he was forced to Negotiate the moving, instead of Negotiating, he fall in love with Pandora, and don’t want to Negotiate the moving. Knowing that the team of researching makes Sully as Traitor and destroy the Tree where the Tribe living. Sully has been exiled from the Tribe. But as he want trust from the Tribe, he tried what the Tribe predecessor do to catch the Toruk Macto, the flying living beast on Pandora that’s so powerful and feared by all the living things on Pandora.

Sully has gained trust and start a revolution, he asked to all the Tribe on Pandora to come and fight the Team that forcing them to move out. A big epic battle begin as they started to kill each other, until many of their brother fighting the army till died, and lastly standing on the last battle. That nearly killed Sully itself. Can Sully really win the battle? What about the Tribe it self? it’s all up to you to watch the Movie.
