Our first movie in Abu Dhabi ... Avatar 3D

The only Dolby 3D cinema in Abu Dhabi ... the new Cine Royal, Khalidiyah Mall.

Initially it hurt, paying 40 AED per ticket, or about RM$37 each ... but after watching Avatar 3D, it was worth EVERY penny! Technically superb, and you will struggle to resist not reaching out to touch the characters who are so 3-dimensional, AND avoid the wreckage and flying trees and blades of grass during many of the action sequences!

Sam Worthington ... Jake Sully
Zoe Saldana ... Neytiri
Sigourney Weaver ... Dr. Grace Augustine
Michelle Rodriguez ... Trudy Chacon
Giovanni Ribisi ... Parker Selfridge
When his brother is killed in battle, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.
