Corrected entry: When Hometree is felled, it is seen that it takes several seconds for it to fall a small distance as Tsu'tey and the other Na'vi escape with the ikran. However, in the shot of all of Hometree, it falls much more quickly.
Corrected entry: Before the bad guys bomb the tree-village, Jake is inside his bed. When the lid is being closed he has a plastic tube all across his forehead. Later on, when the lid is opened, the tube is gone. He was unconscious and his hands were by his side, so there was no way for him to move it.Sacha
Corrected entry: To speak to each other when they are out of the range of hearing each other, they have communication devices around their necks and they press it when they want to talk. But quite a few times sometimes they use it and sometimes they don't, eg, when Jake goes out with Sigourney in the helicopter, as Avatars, Jake wanders off and Sigourney speaks to him through the communications device, but later, when they are the same distance apart, she just talks to him normally.kh1616
Corrected entry: Neytiri's mother, Mo'at, has three arms. As Neytiri runs towards Mo'at, Mo'at holds out her arms to hold her. She puts one around her waist, the other around her arm. But then her arm splits so that she now has two arms on her daughter's left arm, one arm on her daughter's waist.LittleMonkey92
Corrected entry: All throughout the movie humans are dying because they can't breathe on the planet. But then at the end of the movie all the humans are being ushered out without any masks or anything (specifically, when Parker looks at the camera you can clearly see he is not wearing a mask) and are breathing fine?tracicockrell
Corrected entry: During the big bombing of the tree, Michelle Rodriguez refuses to take part and steers the helicopter away, stating that she does not want to be part of that. Even in the distant future, such behaviour would be called insubordination and have her court-martialed. However, she is still able to free Jake and has access to the helicopters in the hangar.BlueCell
Corrected entry: In the scene where General Quaritch tilts the Dragon Bomber to throw Jake off balance [before he can throw the grenades], the huge bomb reverses back into the aircraft hold, in the process squashing the soldier in between. However, no blood stains or body parts are visible when the floor is revealed [after the bomb shifts sideways].goa_man
Corrected entry: Grace incorrectly relates Jake's escape to the others: The last thing we see is this Marine's ass disappearing into the brush with this angry thanator coming after him. That was not a thanator; that was a different type of creature altogether. The thanators were the hammerhead-rhino creatures, but the one that chased Jake was a very different sleek black creature.AdamChurvis
Corrected entry: The great expense of the avatar program is mentioned early in the film, hence wanting to use Jake so as not to waste his brother's avatar. Why then, since Jake has them over a barrel so to speak, doesn't Jake ask the corporation to repair his spine as a condition for joining the program? The Commander promised to get them for him if he spied on the Navi. It just seems that he could have avoided the whole spy/betrayal dilemma.xxlsuge
Corrected entry: At the end of the big battle, the survivors are lined up and are leaving Pandora but to where? All the ships from earth will be full and it will take at least 5+ years for empty ships to arrive to evacuate the survivors.
Corrected entry: The missiles Qaurritch and his men use in the final battle are completely useless. If they have to fire in line of sight, why are the missiles constantly curving and flying all over the place? Line of sight works, but only if the missiles fly in a straight line, otherwise, hitting your target is dumb luck.Friso94
Corrected entry: The exoskeleton walkers are designed to detect the hand and arm movements that their drivers make and replicate them exactly. However at the end when the Colonel is shot by two arrows, he grasps the second one with his right hand (palm-down), however his walker makes a grasp with the palm up. (02:24:00)Nik Rolls
Corrected entry: On Pandora the animals do not have fur nor feathers. Still the Na'vi wear war decorations made out of feathers.
Corrected entry: The flux vortex in the Hallelujah mountains interferes with the radio instruments on the drop ship due to intense magnetic flux in the area. However it does not interfere with the Avatars, which are "remote controlled".
Corrected entry: The science of Pandora is all wrong. For example, they have regular days and nights there, but Pandora is not a planet, circling a sun, it's a moon, circling a planet. The days and nights would coincide with the rotation around the planet. For an extended period, when the planet was between Pandora and the sun, it would be dark, probably weeks at a time, and the opposite for daylight hours. In addition, because Pandora is a satellite of a gas giant, that means its orbit would be millions of miles in variance. There would be a few weeks of winter as it came several million miles further from the sun in its orbit, and then it would be several weeks of blistering summer as it came closer. The vegetation and ecology of the movie are treating the moon as if it had the same cycles and system as a planet, which is impossible. Even it took Pandora a year or more to orbit its planet, so that seasons were more regular, that means it would be in darkness for months as the planet was between it and the sun. If it rotated in a month, that means that it would be going through all 4 seasons 12 times a year, or however many months there were to a Pandoran year.dannyraymilligan
Corrected entry: During the scene when Jake and Norm enters the link-pods for the first time, we see Max looking at images of their brain activity. Max then slides Jakes images onto a tablet with his right hand while holding it with his left, before he moves away. In the next shot, we see Max start to move away from the screens once more, and this time he holds the tablet with his right hand. (00:18:35)
Corrected entry: When Jake is transformed at the end, he has no mask, so he couldn't have been breathing for the transformation.
Corrected entry: In the Extended Edition of the movie, we have Tsu'tey's death scene in full near the end. Jake comes in and the whole scene plays out. but Jake is in his Avatar body. Not moments before, we saw the entire trailer holding the pods in which Jake connected with his Avatar body wrecked by Colonel Miles. So how did he reconnect with his Avatar body after that? It couldn't have been with that trailer, nor could it have been at the original base considering the company should still be inhabiting it and the scene seems to take place at most a few hours after wards.
Corrected entry: Before decanting, the avatars have been maturing for six years in a sealed tank without consciousness, and yet the hair around their queue is in braids. Scuba-beautician?
Corrected entry: In these short few seconds, In the top right corner of the shot, (Above the transparent screen's right corner), you can see a camera that moves exactly where the shot moves. This is a camera, although you have to be quick to see it; it almost disappears after 2 seconds. (02:20:40)
Corrected entry: The first time we see the Avatar in the lab, before Jake connects to it, Jake's Avatar is lying on a bed and it is making a move with its foot. (00:13:30)
Corrected entry: At various times in the film, Jake makes video logs. His 1st is dated May 19th, at approx. 17:09, his 12th is dated May 30th, at approx. 21:32, and his last (98th) is dated August 24th at 19:10. All in the year 2154. At no point in the film are we made aware of the lenghth of Pandoran days and/or nights. Pandora orbits a gas giant, Polyphemus, along with other moons, and Polyphemus orbits the sun, Alpha Centauri A. It's therefore highly unlikely that a Pandoran day (including the night) will be anywhere close to 24hours, which will subsequently affect the lengths of Pandoran weeks, months, years etc. Even if "earth-like" time, days and months were imposed to try and keep a sense of nomality it would never work.
Corrected entry: When Jake is running from the Cat like thing, when he jumps through the tree's he has no gun, has it again, no gun, has it. Falls over and drops the gun, gets back up with NO gun in his hands and runs under the tree with nothing in his hands. Then has the gun to shoot it again under the roots of the tree.
Corrected entry: In the final fight after the Dragon Assault Ship is destroyed and crashes to the ground, Quaritch faces to his left in the AMP. In the next shot, it shows inside his cockpit in which he is actually facing his right side. In the next shot, it changes back to Quaritch facing his left.
Corrected entry: Shortly after Jake woke up in the spaceship going to Pandora, he opened a locker with his name on it, yet it was marked "Sully T." instead of "Sully J."
Corrected entry: In the first exterior shot of the starship at the beginning of the movie, it is facing the wrong direction. It must have been facing backwards (away from Pandora) to decelerate from cruising speed, and would also need to be facing backwards for its upcoming orbital insertion burn. Turning the ship forwards between deceleration and orbital insertion would waste fuel and accomplish nothing.Dusso Janladde
Corrected entry: Spoiler, if you haven't seen the movie, please don't read this:At two points in the 3S version the skin of the Navi isn't blue, but white. They both happen after the attack of the humans.The first time this occurs is when Neytiri falls from a big rhinolike native animal and she's trapped underneath. You can see her leg moving, however that leg isn't blue. Further to the end, when Jake becomes a Na'vi for real, Neytiri's hand touches his face. Again, it isn't blue but white.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Quaritch and Sully are talking for the first time, Quaritch checks his AMP suit and then climbs inside. A red "remove before operation" strap can be seen hanging off the front right side of the AMP suit, next to where the ammo belt comes out. As the two of them talk, the camera cuts back and forth a few times and the strap remains visible; in the last shot before Quaritch assumes control of the AMP suit and begins to walk, this strap has vanished.mrspleen
Corrected entry: When Natiri first shows Jake her flying bird for a quick 2 or 3 second scene, she has her back to the camera and she has no ponytail.
Corrected entry: When Jake faces off with the hammerhead rhino, its family unit or herd is not behind it until after it charges and then begins to back off.
Corrected entry: It is established that Jake's voice-over narration of the film is actually his video logs. After he escapes from Hell's Gate, he continues to narrate. However, Jake would have no reason to continue making video logs at this point. It was one of his video logs that ultimately betrayed the Na'vi, and the camera used to make the logs was in the shack without the link beds, which was left behind when they airlifted the other shack.
Corrected entry: When Avatars go to sleep for the first time (at RDA base), there is one avatar with 4 fingers. It's 5 seconds before Jake's play with pony-tail. Human avatars have 5 fingers, Na'vi ones just 4. This one has a red t-shirt, so it looks like a na'vi spy, or there is a render error.xsoft
Corrected entry: In the last video log J. Sully records the year in the date at the bottom is "2054", not "2154".
Corrected entry: When Jake is learning to control his ikran you can see the actor's tattooed forearm covered in a black fishnet type mesh.
Corrected entry: After Jake is accepted as one of the Omiticaya, Neytiri takes him to the Tree of Voices. While she's speaking, he reaches for one of the dangling tendrils. The angle of the camera shows it is seen to be only one. When the camera angle changes, the one becomes three tendrils with large spaces between them close to the top of the screen, which it would have been obvious to see in the previous shot, as the difference in angles isn't too great.HulkObsessedChick
Corrected entry: Near the end of the sky-battle, Trudy with her chopper fires rounds at the mothership pilot and gets some herself, but even with these bullet holes, they don't lose air and don't put on their oxygen masks.
Corrected entry: It was said in the dialogue that the area surrounding the Soul Tree disrupts electronicmissile guidance systems. That's why the humansplanned to manually drop explosives over the Soul Tree instead of blasting it with a guided missile. Yet during the aerial dogfights between the Na'vi and the "Sky People" Trudy was off the sky by a missile from the mothership that had a curved trajectory [a guided missile!]. (02:18:10)
Corrected entry: In the scene we see Pandora's sky, in the sky we see a gigantic planet and another planet (or kind of a moon) but much smaller (like our moon).In this shot we see a shadow on the big planet (on its right side) which looks like it caused due to the small moon shadowing it, but when looking on the small moon we see that its left half is black (no sun) and right half is white (sun on it). This means that the sun is on the right side of the picture outside the frame. If that is the case there is no way that this moon (or even Pandora itself) will create a shadow on the big planet.
Corrected entry: When Jake makes his spear after recovering from his swim he then makes a 'torch' when it gets dark. How did he discover that the liquid goo he dips his torch in was flammable? Plus, if there's a lot of this flammable goo, how come it didnt ignite when all the missiles and incendiaries were going off in the later battles at hometree and soul tree?
Corrected entry: When Quaritch runs out to chase the escapee ship (he holds his breath and runs outside), he fires several rounds. We see a shot of the ship toward the right of the screen moving left. Quaritch, in his last effort pulls out his handgun and fires 4 shots across the screen (left to right on the screen, right to left for him). The camera cuts back to the ship. The ship is going far too slow for any but the last shot to have hit, and his others were so dead-on that it can't be an accidental miss.bigfootcube
Corrected entry: When Jake is at the Soul Tree with his big new bird [I don't know what it's called] to say sorry to everyone, you can see white pixels for at least 15 frames on the wings of this giant animal. I saw this in the 3d Version.
Corrected entry: On the second trip to the planet Pandora using the helicopter, Jake and his folks are heading to the abandoned lab in the jungle, therefore they're still in human forms. As the shot gets the helicopter in the center getting also the trees and other details of the forest aside, you'll see two big blue humanoids (Avatars) sitting on the back of the helicopter.fbferrari
Corrected entry: When Jake is fighting (at the end) against the colonel. The Colonel is not wearing a mask inside the robot. While in the previous fight one of the soldier is wearing a mask inside the robot.
Corrected entry: In one of the final scenes when the humans are marching single file onto the spaceship, both the "human Norm" and "avatar Norm" are visible in separate shots. Only one or the other should be present.
Corrected entry: Why don't the avatars have a GPS chip implanted in them while they are being "grown" on the trip from Earth? They lost Jake when he got separated from the group and the Marines couldn't locate him when they were fighting. You would think that the avatars cost millions if not billions to make -- and they couldn't put a $30 GPS chip in their neck?
Corrected entry: When the evil Colonel is descending from the burning ship into the robot, first his left shoulder only is on fire, then his right shoulder only is on fire.
Corrected entry: In the very last few seconds of the film where the female avatar places her hand on Jake's avatar's sleeping face, her hand is human and not avatar blue.
Corrected entry: When Rogue 1 gets hit in the air fight at the end, there's obviously external air coming in through the windshield. Previous, we saw the gunship fire at her and bullets break through the windshield. It was stated that humans breathing the air pass out after 20 seconds, yet she shows no signs of discomfort while she reports to Jake, speaking normally.
Corrected entry: The helicopter has men on the guns with masks yet the female pilot does not. Even when escaping with the scientists she turns around and says where to get the medical kit and doesn't have a mask on while the other humans do.
Corrected entry: When Quarich is finally killed in his armor suit, the whole suit falls down backwards. Since Quarich wouldn't have fallen down inside his suit (just leaning backwards in his chair I suppose), why would the suit fall? Such a suit would probably have a fail-safe for soldiers who lean the wrong way too much.
Corrected entry: Before the last battle, Jake and his human friends sneak out from the human operating headquarter. They fly to the forest and take away Grace's secret mobile lab. At this scene, Norm's avatar suddenly appear. Norm's avatar should be stay at the human lab. How do he can escape easily from there and join the human friend in the big forest?sleepychung
Corrected entry: Col. Quaritch spends a lot of time exercising to remain fit in Pandora's supposed "low gravity". If the gravity were really low enough to cause health problems, the effects would be visible: objects would fall to the ground a lot slower, people would hop instead of running, etc. None of that happens, so the gravity can't be that low.
Corrected entry: In the final battle, Jake and Norm access their Avatars from the same portable bunker. Midway through the battle, Norm's Avatar is killed and he exits his 'tanning bed' inside the portable bunker but isn't seen leaving it. He isn't seen again for awhile, not even when the Colonel breaks the windows in the bunker or when Jake starts suffocating inside.
Corrected entry: The Hallelujah Mountains - How is it possible for some the floating islands to have such powerful waterfalls? The flow/source seems disproportionate to the size of the island(s).
Corrected entry: Towards the final battle, we can see the avatars using fire weapons that would belong to humans, since avatars wouldn't have the technology. The weapon would look so tiny being used by an avatar, if it respected the proportion of a human being, but it fits the avatar frame perfectly.ione
Corrected entry: When Jack is chased by the 'black tiger' when he first wanders around the forest, he jumps into the water to save himself. At night, he managed to light up his torch using the supposedly wet matchbox. (00:33:15)
Corrected entry: When they first arrive on Pandora, they must wear gas masks because the air is toxic. Later when Jake and Sully are riding one of the aircraft as humans to go to the new upload location, they are not wearing gas masks even though the cabin door is open and they are in the open air. How can they breathe?
Corrected entry: There's no oxygen on Pandora, yet Jake is able to light a fire when he's in the forest. You need oxygen in order to make fire.
