Chicago Alderman Declares War On 'Avatar.' Makes Marines Look Like 'Lunatics'

It's a titanic battle, and it's in the 3-D of reality: A Chicago alderman versus "Avatar."

Eleventh Ward Ald. James Balcer believes the new blockbuster movie is anti-military and anti-American.

CBS 2's Mike Parker reports.

Balcer is a decorated Marine veteran of the Vietnam war, and now he's going into battle against the film that may turn out to be the biggest moneymaker of all time. He hates the film's message, and he's not alone.

In the movie, an army of mercenaries, led by a villainous Marine, invades the idyllic planet of Pandora and goes after the peaceful blue creatures who live there over deposits of a precious mineral.

Balcer says the film makes Marines "look like lunatics." In reality, he said, "We are a good, generous country that helps people."

Balcer's not the only critic blasting "Avatar" for its point of view. There is also conservative activist Tom Roeser.

"This is the only time I ever sat in a theater where people were cheering the forest and the blue people, attacking ex-Marines," Roeser said.

The film critic for the right-wing Weekly Standard calls the film "blitheringly stupid" and among the "dumbest movies I've ever seen." Others have attacked it for its super-environmentalism and what is perceived as an anti-Christian slant.

Aren't MOST liberals anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Military, anti-rational, anti-family, anti-constitution, anti-common sense and PRO-HYPOCRITICAL? Yes...of course they are. So most of your NEW movies, especially in the last several years, are always have some crap thrown in there to promote that wacky liberal agenda. It's too bad we have so many weak-minded people that actually buy into it..
