The Last Airbender Suspense auteur M. Night Shyamalan takes a break from crafting original screenplays to tell this tale of a 12-year-old boy (Noah Ringer) who provides the last hope for restoring harmony to a land consumed by chaos. In a world balanced on the four nations of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air, people known as the Waterbenders, Earthbenders, Firebenders, and Airbenders have mastered their native elements. Though the masters can each manipulate their native elements, the only one with the power to manipulate all four elements is a young boy known as the Avatar. When the Avatar subsequently appears to die while still mastering his powers, the Fire nation launches a global war with the ultimate goal of global domination. One hundred years later, two teens discover that the Avatar and his flying bison have in fact been locked in suspended animation. Upon being freed from his prison, the Avatar embarks on an arduous quest to restore harmony among the four war-ravaged nations. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I enjoyed the movie for what it was. The cartoon was great and people are always going to want to compare the two, and ultimately the movie will never be as good as the cartoon. With that said, if you go into it to enjoy a movie and not judge and compare it to the cartoon the whole time...you will actually enjoy it. And remember, its adapted from a cartoon and is ultimately a kids movie...so don't go into it expecting an Oscar performance.

Better than expected
Posted by: Dorothy84 from: KS on
This movie was better than the reviews made it look. I liked the visual effects. It would have been better if it had been a little longer. They did stuff the whole first season in, I think, 1hr 45 min.

It's not soo bad seriously
Posted by: lucky55 from: Phoenix on
Ok this movie has some issues like the pacing is very slow at times
and some of the acting seemed rather stilted and the plot was kinda well... out there...and the movie was a good 20 min too long
however i did enjoy this movie because i didm't have high expectations going in therefore it was better than i thought it would be
and the sounds and effects were top notch which should look pretty great on blu-ray i think the biggest issue with this flick was the editing
of the exposition scenes which seemed to go on and on and on.
the best part was that noah ringer did a great job of playing the avatar
and the slo-mo bullet time sequences are fun to watch....
to sum up this movie is at least as good as any twlight movie easily
and people just flock to those things...

Travesty to the Original Material
Posted by: Rachel3791 from: San Diego on
If you've never seen the original cartoons and are picking this movie up for your kids because think they might like it, do both yourself and your children a favor, ignore this film, and go buy the original Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoons.
Shyamalan not only failed to cram an extensive amount of material into one film (the entire first season of the show), he also failed to make a film for the fans. He did not remain true to the source material; he changed names, personalities, and even the entire main character's inner conflict that the original show's writers beautifully created, built, and worked out through an entire season.
I'd love to put the blame on the actors; nearly all of the cast projects cardboard dialogue and stiff acting. Several of them were huge fans of the original material themselves, so I had high hopes that that enthusiasm would carry through. However, an awful script full of exposition and cheesy dialogue plus a bad director can make even good actors terrible.
The only saving graces for this film were the breathtakingly beautiful CGI backgrounds and the film's score. Beyond that, there is nothing worth watching in this movie.

Didn't really like the film all that much since it was so different then the cartoon was. The director said he watched the series, but clearly he didn't since some of the key players in the following seasons were missing. While the characters name were not pronounced correctly at all, its so bad it really annoyed me. And Sokka's not even funny in the film. Stick to the cartoon its much better

Much better on blu-ray
Posted by: lucky55 from: Phoenix on
When i first seen this film it was in the IMAX in 3D
and for some reason it seemed so dark and hard to focus on
i couldn't really get into the film...but now on blu-ray with the brightness
turned up and the subtitles on...and some knowledge about the storyline....it is in fact much better...i've never seen the cartoon....
but i don't believe i would ever like it better especially if it is drawn anime style....as i find that very distracting i much prefer live action...
i think the storyline is great and imaginative and the cinematography
is amazing...the acting is a mixed bag....noah ringer does a great job
as anng the avatar.....everyone else is not quite as good.
still an enjoyable movie i guess just don't campare it to the cartoon .

Not a great movie but I liked it anyway
Posted by: LuvsmyTFT from: San Diego, CA on
I really wanted to like this movie since I really enjoy the genre. My son and I watched together and we admitted it wasn't the best movie, but both of us liked the premise of the story, the characters, etc. that we found that we enjoyed it anyway. I guess I can add this to my list of guilty pleasure videos.

Pretty good but could have been great
Posted by: Manny96 from: Pembroke Pines FL on
This movie is pretty average for an adult but it is more of a movie for a kid to watch. The beginning is kinda slow but the ending was great lots of action towards the end

We liked it
Posted by: AdoptiveFather from: Davenport, IA on
The plot of this story is pretty interesting. The world was in peace and then the peace-makers disappeared so the evil empire took over. So the other nations were all but wiped out until the savior returned. The special effects were pretty cool - the slow-down scenes during the fight were neat too. We have kids that are 5, 6, and 12 and we all liked it for our family.
