Absolutely! Avatar: The Way of Water is worth watching without question. Never bet against Cameron because he always delivers. The Avatar sequel is visually spectacular, which should not come as a surprise to anyone following Cameron’s movies. Despite the three-hour runtime, The Way of Water feels perfectly paced, and the ending leaves the audience wanting more.

Reprising their roles from the first film are CCH Pounder, Giovanni Ribisi, Dileep Rao, Joel David Moore, and Matt Gerald. New cast members include Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Jermaine Clement, Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton, Trinity Jo-Li Bliss, Jack Champion, and Bailey Bass. Sigourney Weaver returns to the cast, but she plays the role of Jake’s adopted daughter Kiri, instead of Dr. Grace Augustine, who died in the first film.

Avatar: The Way of Water is directed and produced by Cameron from a script written by Cameron, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver from a story the three wrote with Josh Friedman and Shane Salerno. On Rotten Tomatoes, Avatar: The Way of Water registers 76% on the Tomatometer with a 92% audience score. On Metacritic, the film holds a 67 Metascore with a 7.2 user score.
