The whole plot is nothing to brag about either. It's been said before and it bares repeating that it was fern gully with a mixture of braveheart and a healthy dose of last of mohicans. It's scary but Cameron watched Pocahontas from Disney and replaced all the indians with blue Indians. Or maybe it's Pocahontas meets dances with wolves, expect they replaced the musical numbers with lifter robots from Aliens.

It also sends a bad signal. As if the native folks could not possibly fend off the white invaders without a bunch of turncoats on their side. Not to mention the pure evil antagonist were less believable than the blue aliens. Especially with the idea that they really lay it out there about this material they're collecting. Could James get even more on point about raping a culture for the means of production?
