1.0 out of 5 stars Fans of the series, BE AFRAID!, May 9, 2011
This review is from: The Last Airbender (DVD)
No. Do not buy this movie! M Night Shyamalan does not seem to understand that there is a difference between an homage and a turd, and that there's an even bigger difference between creative freedom and hocking a big juicy loogie on the original. This movie will leave a bitter taste in the mouth of any ATLA fan, and for those who don't know the series, it's still a pretty bad film. While there are some pretty decent special effects, it's not enough to save this movie; not even close. The acting, the dialogue, and the casting are so off it's almost funny. I wanted to laugh at the "bending" that Shyamalan attempted to recreate for us, but I could only grimace. Now I know this movie already has enough hate as it is, so I'll try to keep this short. I could not, for the life of me, sit through this movie. I rented it from the DVD machine at my university to see what all the fuss was about, but now I wish I hadn't. I mean, this movie is a joke! I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't for the fact that so many people are to be introduced to the series this way. If you've seen the movie and it's turned you off of the series, please reconsider! The show is spectacular, and fans are banding together to defend it now that M Night's little project has done its damage. The movie is completely different; it leaves out way too much and adds way too much at the same time. As I said before, it's not the kind of creative freedom or unique adaptation fans hoped for. While my expectations were low to begin with, I was sorely disappointed with this film. Just don't watch it if ya know what's good for ya. As M Night has hopefully learned from all this, the road to cinematic cat diarrhea is paved with good intentions.
