Excerpt: The crimes that this movie committed against moviegoers everywhere are now the stuff of cinematic legend. This could have been the next Harry Potter but no it had to suck! Why why why why why they believed that this was the best way to adapt the television series remains perhaps the greatest mystery regarding this steaming pile of **** that will forever be linked to one helluva animated series. The acting sucks across the board.
Excerpt: Leuk gedaan, alleen ze moesten niet een hele serie in anderhalf uur proppen en het zag er echt heel nep uit. Er komt nog een deel 2 aan het einde te zien, alleen die hoef ik niet te zien. Sorry, onvoldoende.
Summary: Four nations based on four elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water are kept at peace thanks to The Avatar - a person with the power to control all four elements. When The Avatar goes missing, the nation of Fire declares war threatening the balance. The 12-year-old Aang now has to realize his destiny as the new Avatar, control his powers and bring peace back to the four nations.
Excerpt: Not good, in fact it's one of the worst movies I've seen in years. I hated it! The acting was horrible, basically every actor sucked even though there were some talented actors involved. The script was poorly written and cheesy. The story jumped around a lot and made very little sense at times, which is strange because I was familiar with the story because I watched a little of the show. The fighting sequences were stupid. Some of the CGI was okay, but not good.
Excerpt: To those thinking about viewing The Last Airbender by M. Night, please don't. If you are looking to see a good portrayal of the animated kid's tv show Avatar: The Last Airbender, this is not the film to go see. Watch the actual tv show on Netflix or something. This is just a waste of your time. This film is chuck full of bad acting, bad writing, and somewhat racial groupings of Asian and Indian culture.
Summary: When taken as a fantasy film, this is pretty bad - wooden acting, murky plotline, cheesy special effects. However, when taken in the context of the series on which it is based, it's an absolute travesty and M. Night makes meaningless departures from the source material.
Excerpt: I love M. Night Shyamalan, and I love the TV series "Avatar: The Last Airbender", so naturally I was really excited for this movie. But when I finally was able to see it, my heart was just torn. The names were all pronounced wrong, the acting seemed way too animated, and so much was flipped around. In the first "book", 'Sokka', 'Aang', and 'Katara' don't fly to the Earth Kingdom; they head straight for the Northern Water Tribe.
Excerpt: This is a review of the movie, not the disc. I'll admit to being a biased fan of Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender, but there's simply no excuse for how bad this movie is. Considering how amazing and entertaining the source material is, all any filmmaker had to do, was use the brilliant cartoon as a template/storyboard. It's mind-boggling how far M. Night Iamasham went out of his way to screw this up.
