From the Director of Sixth Sense comes the highly anticipated live-action family adventure, The Last Airbender, based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon TV series. Air, Water, Earth and Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation led by Prince Zuko (Dev Patel), launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war-torn world.

If you are like me, you hate watching a kid's movie and then walk away scratching your head. This movie has that potential.

I liked the movie in spite of its short comings. I have not seen the Avatar cartoon, which may be why I over rate this as compared to die-hard cartoon fans. I have been a big fan of the early RPGs until my PS-1 died.

The world consists of a number of spirits which create harmony (moon spirit, dragon spirit etc.). Mankind in divided into four nations, each of which controls one of the 4 elements, water and Earth, Wind & Fire. Each element has its own spirit too. Each Nation has people who can control their specific element. The are called "benders." There is one person, and only one person in all the world who can control all 4 elements, that is the Avatar. The Avatar spirit always lives and is passed on, or reincarnated in every generation.

In this movie, the Avatar originated from the Air Bender nation. However, he didn't want to be an Avatar because of the self sacrifice so he ran away before he could learn all of his skills and powers. He ended up encased in a block of ice in the southern world, only to be "rescued" a 100 years later. During that 100 years, the Fire Nation and their machines have taken over the planet. They symbolically represent civilization destroying the planet and ruining the harmony of nature. The Air Bender must learn to master the other 3 elements in order to become a complete Avatar. This is his quest in the movie. Once he does that he can save the planet from the Fire Nation. He is capable of going into a deep trance and talks to the dragon spirit for advice.

Now to make this movie slightly more complicated there is friction within the Fire Nation.

'SHE'S A BENDER!!!!!!!'

Really? What a disaster. Whoever wrote the script has clearly never been to England.
It got laughed at by most of the people viewing it with us at the cinema...

Good visuals, but then so is a sunset...

Before reading the rest of this review, please see those three precisions / warnings:

1) I never saw even one episode of "Avatar" TV series before or after seeing this movie, so if you are a fan of "Avatar" and look for a comparison between those series and "The Last Airbender", further reading of this review will be for you unsatisfactory.

2) Due to very bad reviews this movie received, I went to see it with extremely low expectations and it may be one of the reasons why I was so pleasantly surprised - so if you are a fan of "Avatar" TV series AND in the same time you hate this movie, further reading of this review will be for you probably upsetting.

3) In many (not all) fantasy and SF movies I have a tendency to root for the bad guys, so if you are a fan of "Avatar" TV series and for that reason you hate the Fire Nation, further reading of this review can be for you life threatening....

MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD:

I found this movie much better than I expected and together with my 9 years old daughter we spend a good moment watching it. To compare "The Last Airbender" with other vaguely similar fantasy movies, I would say that it is better than "Eragon" and "Golden Compass", mostly on the same level as "Narnia II: Prince Caspian" and only slightly less good than "Narnia I: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".

For all of you people who love this film but HAVE NOT seen the cartoon series, please go and watch the series. This film misses out SO MUCH content it makes me want to cry. Seriously! What were these guys thinking. The film isn't completely bad, but it's borderline 1 star. Now i'm sure if I had never seen the series this film might be quite good however this isn't the case! Please listen: Film 1/2 out of 5 stars. Cartoon 6/7 out of 5 stars. (Yes I can count...)

Follow this link and buy it now, please for the love of God!

Format: DVD
There are good adaptations. There are bad adaptations. And there are adaptations that rip asunder the source material and gleefully devour its corpse.

This is one of the last category.

I might have been able to still enjoy "The Last Airbender" if it had merely had special effects, a horrible script and actors with the charisma of a plank. But director M. Night Shyamalan gets EVERYTHING ELSE wrong too, from the character motivations to bending.

Southern Water Tribe girl Katara and her brother Sokka stumble across a glowing glacier, and find a young Airbender boy inside. Since all the other Airbenders are dead, Katara figures out that Aang is the Avatar -- the master of all four elements, and the only person in the world who can defeat the powerful Fire Nation.

However, the Fire Nation has already found him, in the form of the disgraced Prince Zuko (Dev Patel). Aang, Sokka and Katara set out on a perilous voyage to the North Pole to find a waterbending master. But the malevolent Admiral Zhao -- Zuko's nemesis -- is approaching the North Pole with the Fire Nation navy, with a plan that may destroy them all.

M. Night Shyamalan had a golden opportunity with "The Last Airbender" -- the original cartoon was intelligent, funny, complex and filled with brilliant martial-arts and strong philosophical overtones. So instead he decided to make a movie with NONE of that -- a witless, humorless, simplistic stumbling behemoth of a film.

The culture, the characters, the climactic battle, the bending, the acting, the action sequences, and even the pronunciation of the names... EVERYTHING IS WRONG. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. But if I listed everything wrong with the movie, this review would be the size of a novel.
