How can any half-awake viewer of the film not catch the moral judgment
upon the military/capitalist bad guys and its sympathy for the
indigenous nature lovers? Theme has been a part of the analysis of
drama since Aristotle. It's unreasonable to expect anything else.
That being said, it was indeed an enjoyable film with great visual effects.
