The Last Airbender Blu-Ray/DVD Review

Oct 31, 2010

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.

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 Twilight's Jackson Rathbone was part of the problem.

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.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
