A Michelle Rodriguez Retrospective

Michelle Rodriguez

Avatar (2009)

After Avatar dominated the worldwide box office, I’m pretty sure almost everyone wished they could live on the moon Pandora. This blockbuster not only made over $2.5 billion since its release but was also raved by the critics and received three Academy Awards. Jake Sully is a paraplegic, ex-marine who has the opportunity to get his legs and life back when he is given a mission in the futuristic world. After creating his avatar, he becomes immersed in Pandora, caring deeply for it and its people. When he falls in love with a Pandora native, he begins to realize the destruction Pandora is facing due to the people he is working for. Teaming with the natives and rouge soldiers – including Trudy Chacon played by Michelle Rodriguez – they join a war against everything he has ever believed in for his newfound realization. With mind-blowing special effects, this film takes you on a journey to an incredible land you wished existed.
