Product Description :
At over 45,000 words, this is the most comprehensive analysis of Avatar yet produced.

Avatar is the most successful movie of all time, surpassing the record held by James Cameron’s previous monster hit, Titanic. It is also the most expensive movie ever. With its adoption of modern 3D techniques, Avatar is arguably the most spectacular film of all time.
Kevin Patrick Mahoney explores how Avatar has reached this pinnacle of success. The film has not been universally praised; some critics have pointed to an overly simple plot and dialogue. However, Kevin reveals that there are many complex themes that lie behind such apparent simplicity. This book begins with a thorough review of events as they happen on screen, including the many scenes deleted from the film, and then proceeds to explore some of the most interesting themes in more depth. Kevin examines how James Cameron has adapted Joseph Campbell’s theory of the Hero’s Journey in Avatar. The Na’vi’s planet, Pandora, is very paradisiacal, so this book discusses how it’s related to the Biblical Garden of Eden. In addition to this, Kevin dissects Avatar’s rather confused politics, the controversial depiction of the US Marine Corps, and the accusations of racism that have been hurled at the film. Since Jake Sully is introduced to us in a wheelchair, Kevin examines the representation of disabled people in Avatar and other science fiction dramas. Some of Avatar’s subtle depictions of sexuality seemed to be mainly directed at adolescent boys, so this book also dissects some of the more ‘blue’ aspects of the movie. Moreover, Kevin Patrick Mahoney reveals how Avatar relates to James Cameron’s previous blockbuster movies.
