So for all the hype, then the backlash, then the adorning of the "Smurf" characters, we finally have some reviews about the most highly anticipated movie of the year. For all the haters out there: Avert your eyes!
"The King of the World sets his sights on creating another world entirely in Avatar, and it's very much a place worth visiting."
--Todd McCarthy "Rolling Stone"
"The screen is alive with more action and the soundtrack pops with more robust music than any dozen sci-fi shoot-'em-ups you care to mention."
--Kirk Honeycutt "The Hollywood Reporter"
"It’s been twelve years since "Titanic," but the King of the World has returned with a flawed but fantastic tour de force that, taken on its merits as a film, especially in two dimensions, warrants four stars. However, if you can wrap a pair of 3D glasses round your peepers, this becomes a transcendent, full-on five-star experience that's the closest we'll ever come to setting foot on a strange new world. Just don’t leave it so long next time, eh, Jim?"
--Chris Hewitt "Empire"
...and they just keep rolling in, looks like Jim Cameron may be King of the World again come March 3rd?
