Saw it and loved it. True escapism, because the world felt so real. Amazing they that could make it so seamless so you didn't know what was computer and what was live.
Story was predictable right from the start (and there's nothing wrong with that) and told really well in a very engaging way.
I'm not usually a fan of "things go boom" movies - and there were a lot of things going "boom" in this. But there was enough other stuff to keep my interest. It was a long movie (nearly 2.5 hours) but they needed that in my opinion to tell the story in a balanced way.
They made the na'vi look alien enough and yet alluring (I've already seen discussion threads about alien sex with them!), but in a very classy, non-tacky way.
Two sequels are planned, depending on total box office, I heard.
