Roger Ebert

James Cameron invites viewers into a fully realized world with striking images and phenomenally rendered action scenes, making 'Avatar: The Way of Water' a blockbuster that truly displays the personal touch of its creator.


Rotten Tomatoes

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film.


The New York Times

Thirteen years later, 'Avatar: The Way of Water' — the first of several long-awaited sequels directed by James Cameron — brings with it a ripple of nostalgia.



The entire world will say: We’ve got to know what this thrill ride feels like.



Avatar: The Way of Water isn’t afraid to be weird as hell, as it doubles down on the naked sentimentality of the first movie, refocuses the plot on more interesting characters, and sets the high water mark for visual effects in film all over again.



In these moments, I didn't feel like I was watching a movie so much as floating in one.


The Verge

For all of its VFX wizardry, The Way of Water ultimately plays like a by-the-numbers sequel.


The Hollywood Reporter

So it should surprise no one that Avatar: The Way of Water — which includes echoes of all those earlier films — is a hugely entertaining follow-up to the 2009 sci-fi eco-thriller.
