The Last Airbender Movie Review

Jul 01, 2010

From the previews, The Last Airbender looked like it had all the makings of a great movie—an interesting concept, great visual effects and even an actor from Twilight. But Jackson Rathbone, who played Jasper Cullen in the Twilight Saga, wound up being the biggest part of the problem.


The Last Airbender Summary

Aang, the Avatar (a person who can control all four elements and has a connection to the spirit world), has been missing for over a century, and finally he has returned. But somehow he is still a boy. His people in the Air Nation have all been destroyed by the power-hungry Fire Nation. He is the only remaining Airbender. But he ran away from home before he developed his abilities to bend water, earth and fire. Now, as the Avatar, he must learn to control the other elements.


He and his rescuers, Sokka and Katara, travel to the Water Nation so he can be trained to control water. But he’s struggling with the loss of his people, making it hard to learn. Aang’s presence in the Water Nation leads the Fire Nation to its borders. They plan to wage a war in order to get their hands on the Avatar, and destroy the Water Nation in the process. They believe that only Firebenders should remain.


The Last Airbender Review

M. Night Shyamalan presented elemental gifts in a unique way. And the entire film was filled with wonderful special effects and fight scenes. But there was a problem with both the script and the acting. The lines took the guess work out of the movie. They explained too much, making it easy to follow along, but truly boring to watch. The bad acting by two of the main characters, Sokka and Katara, made it hard to believe the story. Even though it’s made for 3D, The Last Airbender is definitely a rental.

THIS MOVIE IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO THE SHOW!! When I heard the movie was coming out I was like, OMG MY FAVE SHOW IS FINALLY A MOVIE!! Well the movie sucked. The people who played Sokka, Katara, Zuko and Iroh looked nothing like them and were just bad actors. And Zuko's scar was wrong. It was WAY too small. I also hated the fact that Fire Benders couldnt make their own fire, they had to het it from somewhere else. *???* AND THEY CHANGED THE NAMES!!! WHAT?!?!?! WHY?!?!?! UGH!!!!
