    You made a grave mistake in star listing. Order: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang and then Michelle Rodriguez. Rodriguez did an excellent job, however, she was not one of the top two main characters. Remember, her character was killed off. Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will continue on with Avatar 2.
