You know what he's going to choose to do, you know how he's going to unite the clans, you know what's going to happen with him and the chick, and you know how it's going to end, all LONG before it gets there. It's as predictable as a romantic comedy. This script was written by focus group study and statistical analysis of what had been done before.

I enjoyed the movie because I went in there expecting that. I was going to the theater for fun and to see the cool new special effects, not expecting some great story with unique plot twists.
Exactly! It's a groundbreaking technological leap - expect to see more and more movies made "just like it" but the plot is Dances With Wolves meets Fern Gully. I fully expected the answer to "how many are there?" to be "as many as there are stars in the sky".
