Fans Are Calling Out Major Plot Hole In Avatar: The Way Of Water

Audiences have been waiting for more than a decade for the second installment of James Cameron‘s “Avatar,” and “The Way of Water” is definitely filling cinemas around the world. However, not everyone is happy, as fans have noticed a major plot hole in the “Avatar” sequel. Warning: This article is going to contain spoilers!

  1. The reviews have generally been positive. While critics have given it a pretty impressive 78% on Rotten Tomatoes, the audience score is even higher at 93%. That’s a pretty good score, without a doubt. It’ll certainly help Cameron to secure more funding for further “Avatar” movies. And yes, Cameron does have plans to keep the franchise going.
  2. However, the viewing experience wasn’t totally seamless. That’s because some eagle-eyed fans noticed a plot hole towards the end of “Avatar: The Way of Water.” Once you see it, you won’t be able to stop thinking about it.
  3. It all goes down in a scene between Jake and Neytiri. In the scene, Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) have a big fight while riding on some kind of sea dragon. They should have the help of other Na’vi but they’re not around. While the scene is technically impressive, fans weren’t really feeling it.
  4. Where were all the supporting characters? Leaving the battle to Jake and Neytiri just didn’t fit with the overall storyline for many viewers. One viewer said that having the other Na’vi “randomly disappear during the last battle” represented a major plot hole in the second “Avatar” movie. Another person remarked there’s “got to be some missing footage” that shows where everyone else disappeared to.

Whether or not this affects die-hard fans’ viewing experiences, it’s clear the second movie is clearly a hit around the world. The movie stands to make a good chunk of cash. Hopefully, “Avatar: The Way Of Water” makes more than $2 billion so it can break even!
