'Avatar': Backlash Builds Against Film and Filmmaker James Cameron

Many wheelchair users said Sully's legs looked skinny, and wondered if Cameron had digitally altered them to make them appear atrophied.

They also noticed a detail others might miss; that Sully didn't have a specialized cushion.

"Even for people in manual wheelchairs, they use some sort of cushion to prevent pressure sores," Klebine said

Santina Muha, who suffered a spinal cord injury at age 5 in a car accident, said Sully labored too much when he got in and out of his wheelchair.

"There was one scene when he was doing a transfer and he had to pull his legs over. I thought he struggled too much with the weight of his legs," Muha said. "I'm a little girl, and he was a big strong guy. It should take much less effort for him to transfer."

ABC News' Lauren Cox, Huma Khan and Alexander Marquardt contributed to this report.
