James Cameron's "Avatar" works amazingly well, plunging us into a world unlike any we've seen. It runs for more than 2 1/2 hours and only 30 minutes of that unfolds in the "real" world of actors and sets. The bulk of the movie takes place in the computer-rendered jungles and skies of Pandora, a moon where mountains float in midair, where dragons flap overhead and where everything from the atmosphere to the wildlife is fatal to humans.
