However, there are several emotionally harrowing scenes that come towards the climax of the film that show the demise of major characters. Actual sexual content is very brief and mild, aside from the fact that a lot of the film features the non-sexual nudity of the Na'vi. One 40 year old man's perspective - Being an avid sci-fi/fantasy fan from an early age, I enjoyed the movie a lot, although I personally think the 3D effects weren't nearly worth the money they spent on them, and I do agree with people who feel it lacked originality.Language is a bigger issue than I though: there are almost constant "d**n"s, "a*s"s, "b***ard"s, and "b**ch"s. I was much more concerned, however, about the impact the movie will have on my 10 year old nephew and his friends.There are numerous uses of a**, sh**, g**-da**, and some terms that a curious child might want to have explained, such as limp-d*****.AVATAR shows that James Cameron is truly one of his generation's finest directors.AVATAR is a must-see movie, but not for the family. nipple slips, nipples seen in shadows or through flimsy material, etc) and vulgar language has on young, developing male minds.It's bias toward pantheism should cause monotheistic parents to prepare to talk about that issue. For all the money they spent on the movie, I would expect an original plot. First with my husband then with my 7 year old daughter. No amount of talking, before or after, is going to reduce the impact.
So, parents, if you wouldn't take your teen to a movie where they show a woman's bare breast in profile 5 or 6 times, don't take them to see this.Though I knew there was adult language in this film there was a lot more and more continuous use of adult language than I realized.This proved to be my largest concern, though I discussed this issue both before and after the film with my children.This is an excellent movie with a good message for older children.We prescreened it without the kids, and decided that the monsters were too scary for our 5 and 7 year old boys, and that the violence was so personal that it would upset them.I also did not think the sensuality ended up being a concern.There is a brief kissing scene, and the term "mating" is then used as a synonym for marriage. The na'vi people wear very little clothing, and there are a few scenes shot from a distance where you can see the side of a female breast with nipple.I also was not concerned with this matter since these are a native people and not portrayed to be human or expected to be dressed as such. The language is extremely rough and not used just in the battle scenes.The movie starts with adult language and the language is used throughout.Not only has he mastered visual effects, animation, and 3-D to stunning effect, but he can always create plots and characters that are engaging, deep, and sympathetic.AVATAR is an absolutely stunning movie, and is the realization of the entire decade of movies striving towards perfect visuals. It is positive, uplifting, entertaining, and down-right awe-inspiring. Violence is, for the most part, constant but non-graphic.
