    The world premiere for the highly anticipated Avatar: The Way of Water happened at Leicester Square in London and the early reactions from critics have hit the internet.

    And it looks like Avatar 2 just may surprise the original's success with many critics praising the visual spectacle, especially the action set pieces as well the underwater sequences.

    Critics do address the three-hour runtime of the movie as an issue but state that the movie is engaging despite this especially the final act of the movie. Avatar 2 is set ten years after the events of the first movie and will focus on Jake Scully and his family trying to survive after the human's act and destroy their homeland.

    So let us take a look at what critics have to say about The Way of Water.

    It is clear that critics are impressed by the movie as the first responses are overwhelming positive hopefully it will continue to be so because the movie has a budget of 400 million dollars making it one of the most expensive movies ever made

    And since there are three sequels already in production with Avatar 3 set to hit theaters in 2024, the future of the franchise depends on the success of The Way of Water.

    The movie boasts of an ensemble cast that includes Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton, Joel David Moore, and Dileep Rao. 

    Even before its release, the music composed by Simon Franglen has won the Best Original Score in a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film at this year's Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

    We are sure this won't be the last award Avatar 2 will receive considering the track record of 2009s Avatar, which includes three Academy Awards for Best Art Direction, Editing, and Visual Effects.

    Avatar: The Way of Water will hit theaters worldwide on Decmber 16th.
