The Story

Avatar tells a story of researchers employed by a large, greedy corporation who are escorted by mercenary soldiers to a world called Pandora.1 To obtain a valuable mineral, the group enters an idyllic, forest-filled land—inhabited by tall blue-skinned humanoids called the Na’vi—to take what is not theirs. Pandora’s innocence and paradise are about to be lost, reminiscent of the Garden of Eden of the Old Testament. An allusion to the New Testament, specifically Christ’s appearance on Earth, occurs when an outsider helps rescue the Na’vi as he takes on their form. (More about other biblical inferences later in this review.)

In some ways, parts of the plot resemble the Oscar award-winning movie Dances with Wolves, in which Native-Americans are exploited by the military in the 1800s. Director Cameron acknowledges Dances with Wolves with dialogue such as: “What am I supposed to do—dance with it?” (as the protagonists are challenged by an alien animal). The pantheistic religion and clothing of the Na’vi also give hints to the American Indian.

A Great Spiritual Need

The movie also presents a “spiritual” experience in its pantheism and hyper-environmentalism—and the worldview of evolution.

The general shift in recent moviemaking reflects this great need of humans—a need for a relationship with the Creator. But the emphasis is to go after other gods—to look for all sorts of avenues that will give them some sort of “spiritual” experience, rather than accept the truth that God has revealed to us in the Bible.
