    Funniest thing in this movie was that the fire bender needed a candle for making fire but uncle iroh did it without a candle and the ˋˋfire benderś´ OMG how can he do that xD I was crying at this moment and that wasn’t the only one in cinema xD

    I don’t blame the actors in this movie, I blame the writers, choreographers, and M Knight’s psycho ass. Who wrote this piece of shit???? Who choreographed this horrible ass fighting? They deserve to have this asses whipped in public.

  • Angry Juice

    The movie honestly sucked, literally they gotten all the names wrong. And not only that but fucked up fire bending logic, Zuko looks like a fucking twilight character, but hey at least the got Katara's name right.

    Also as a AVATAR nerd. Fun fact Critic did you know, the bending abilities actually is based off Zodiac signs and Sun and Moon signs. The only way one can, be Avatar is by having the Cardinal sign.

  • Rydge Lamm

    I know I'm late to the party, but the reason the bending effects were so bad is because they ran out of time and out of money. As for the rest, just blame the director

    You know, I never saw the anime, but my girlfriend wanted me to watch the movie with her. When I saw the Earth prison, I asked her, "Couldn't they easily dig out?"
    So, do know that scene didn't make sense to those who haven't watched the show.

    So, I haven't seen the Last Airbender show (though it is in my "to watch" list), but what the hell is wrong with that guy at 11:10? I keep seeing that scene pop up every so often and I'm just curious why he becomes so excited and starts foaming and, presumably, chokes.

    I honestly don’t hate it as someone who didn’t watch the show. When I first saw it I thought it looked like an average movie. Today I give it a meh 3/5 stars. Don’t eat me wrong; I completely get why hard core fans and cinephiles hate it.

    You know the kid who played Aang is actually a decent martial artist. I mean, he has a black belt and everything in Tae Kwon Do. And from what I’ve read, he’s a real-life Aang in personality, really fun and energetic. If this movie was directed by someone else, ANYONE else rather than Schlmalamadingdong, and the kid received some acting lessons, this could’ve been a somewhat honorable adaptation! I feel so bad for the kid. It sounds like he was a fan. I feel bad for the martial arts community because I’m sure they were super excited for this film.

    Okay, why is Azula played by such a nice-looking girl? At least do something with her hair and tell her to act it more evilly. Maybe alter her voice so, it seems more like it could be a character such as Azula.
    But then again... that's just about what you can say for all the kids actors here with maybe exception of Zuko..

    It was so bad! I never go to the movies and this time I went to the actual movie theatre with my kids to see this disaster and I was in shock how they destroyed the whole essence of the show! Wtf where was the humor the wit And did they even see the show at all??? Terrible actors and we didn’t like stupid kora either. I was disappointed they had cars and cameras and where was everyone we loved!?its like Star Wars, the original movies are the best and they can not reproduce the essence of them either. dude you nailed it! Such a great review !!

  • Παναγιωτης Κούσης

    The one behind the movie isn't Shyamalan... it's Ozai. Only he could hate the Gaang so much.
    Also: it takes three Earthbenders to knock down a tank... and TWICE as many for a pebble in the movie? That's why they could be imprisoned in fucking rocks!

    Involve the sequel.
    Especially when that sequel somehow manages to be _worse_ than the hilarious f***-up knock-off.
    _Please._ I'd like to see you _try_ to ruin Korra any more...

    I feel like they could’ve split the movie in volumes as
    Volume 0.5
    Volume 1
    Volume 1.5
    Volume 2
    Volume 2.5
    Volume 3
    Volume 3.5
    Volume 3.75
    Volume 4 (FINALE)
    1. Giving them more time for heavily induce into character development throughout their journey
    2. Cast new actors
    3. Reduce exposition
