Excerpt: De verwachtingen voor deze anime-verfilming waren erg hoog.'Avatar: The Last Airbender' kent als anime een grote fan-base. Dit had, in principe, van deze film net zo'n grote hit kunnen maken als de 'Harry Potter' of 'Lord of the Ring' series. Dat is deze film zeker niet. Er is op internet al veel geschreven over hoe en waar de film gefaald is. In mijn mening is het voornamelijk een gebrek aan liefde. N.
Excerpt: A world populated by four tribes who can manipulated the elements of fire, water, earth and air can only regain balance upon the return of The Avatar, but the ambitious ruler of the Fire Nation is interested only in conquest. M. Night Shyamalan clearly wished to create a epic fantasy world in the vein of Lord Of the Rings by pillaging Eastern religions and philosophy.
Summary: Even though I never seen the original material, I have to believe it's more entertaining than this. The main problem is the plot meanders all over the map and the young, mostly unknown, cast can't shoulder the weight of this huge spectacle. Even the special effects seem sub par. It promises a sequel, but I don't think we'll have to worry about one.
Summary: Has some dull scenes, lack of character development, miscasts and sense of direction. Just a lack of planning in my opinion. The special effects were not impressive, it was like watching a cartoon than a movie. We need to see more Unbreakable type flicks. The Last Airbender could have been way better.
Excerpt: I found the movie to be a bit disappointing. It just didn't fit all together right, which is weird as that usually watch Shyamalan is good at. Overall, I liked the actors in their parts, the action was pretty good, and the special effects were great. There was too much narration and telling of the story rather than showing of the story. Some scenes and parts really worked and then other just didn't making it difficult to review the movie as a whole.
Summary: best way i can put it is dragonball movie was just as good so if u didnt like that im sure you wont like this etha,if your a fan of the cartoon ul be disapointed whats crap is that its trying to be like the cartoon where as DB wasn't and its not like the cartoon to much big stuff missd out LIKE KING BUMI and Aangs not Aang Katara ant katara and Sokka ant Sokka...
Summary: Yes mixed pace with terribly wooden performances from the cast, and unfortunately our own Cliff Curtis i feel had the worst delivery of the lot. I was generally not comfortable with his scenes. That said, beautiful visuals. Particularly enjoyed the Fire Nation's Ocean faring fleet and of course the Bending itself. 2 1/2 if it was possible to score this..
