The cartoon epic Avatar: The Last Airbender comes to the big screen as live-action special effects spectacular, with the title simplified to The Last Airbender. The movie is crammed with as much of the show's anime-influenced mythology as can fit: In a fantasy world, different tribes have influence over the elements of air, earth, fire, and water. Only one person can manipulate all four--the Avatar, who is also a bridge between the terrestrial and spirit worlds, and who reincarnates throughout the centuries. But for a hundred years, the Avatar has disappeared--until Katara, a young waterbender, and her brother Sokka discover a young airbender, Aang, frozen under the southern ice. Aang sets off to master the other elements so that he can counter the marauding Fire Nation, who have slain all other airbenders in their campaign to rule the world. Aang's journey and the titanic battles owe a significant debt to the Lord of the Rings trilogy--it's surprising that director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) hasn't made more of an effort to craft something more distinctive. The only character who stands out is Prince Zuko (Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire), an exiled firebender who can only regain his place by his father's side if he can capture the Avatar. Everyone else is fairly bland--but this movie isn't about characters, it's about special effects, and lots of money and labor has been lavished on blasts of fire and water flying through the air. Viewers unfamiliar with the cartoon are likely to be confused; some fans will be disappointed at how cramped the story has become, while others will enjoy the visual delights. --Bret Fetzer

As an avid and strong fan of the TV series I was both shocked and disappointed at the lack of effort that was put into this adaption. All the characters in the film were not even close to portray the TV series. The names were spoken incorrectly, there was no character development, the interactions between the characters was minimal, and the emotions of the outcomes were minor at best.

The positive remarks on this film is that the effects were decent at best. However the bending was ruined with the way M. Night Shyamalan portrayed it. The story plot felt sped up, moving the Protagonist and his companions across the world but does not explain half of the reasons how or why they were in certain areas.

The only character that showed a slight decent representation was Zuko. I admit if one who is not aware or has watched the TV series would have enjoyed the film at best, but it should have more effort put into it.

In conclusion I feel this movie was a poor addition to M. Night Shyamalan's film repertoire.

First I'll address things that I would have hated about this movie were I not a fan of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series and just some random person watching this as a regular movie. Even if this were an original movie, it would be awful.

The acting is terrible. Really terrible. There's many parts where I had to pause the movie and just say to myself, 'Really?'. There's a moment where Katara says, 'Aang, we have to go.' Which, first off was obvious and didn't need to be stated but secondly her delivery was just so stiff and it didn't have any of the urgency that would have made it a semi-tolerable line.

As previously mentioned the writing is very iffy.

There's really no character development through the entire movie. They try to get in Aang overcoming his guilt, but Aang never actually does. He just has the problem, then he doesn't anymore by the time the movie is over. There's no real character progression to that point. You don't see his journey, you don't see him actually go through the process. It's just he has the problem, he's told he has the problem. Then he just kind of decides that it's over and bam it's over.

The special effects are okay, but they're so slow that it's just tedious and there's not much of it so as a mindless action movie it's a not good either.

The worst part is that the bending is so slow. In the series [yeah I know, comparing] it's so quick and it's amazing to watch. The battles flow naturally. In this movie the bending is so slow that it's ridiculous, I could walk up and slap the characters before they even get their bending really going. So even for an action movie it's bad.

I'd go on and on about how many inaccuracies and how much butchering of the series this movie does... but it's all been said before and any fan that's seen this movie already knows what's wrong with it. A lot.

Don't let curiosity get you to watch this, you will just end up angry and annoyed.

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.

Absolutely terrible movie. Acting was completely emotionless with the characters revealing no real motivation. Even if you have seen the original series you'll most likely still be confused as to why the characters behave in the manner they do. The plot is a hacked down sub-par, humorless version of the original story. None of the characters are able to be related to or likable in any way.

The special effects were sub-par as well. The CG was low quality at best and completely fake looking at worst. The action used tried old Matrix slow down effects to "enhance" the look of the characters. The only reason they did this was to hide the shoddy choreography. Overall this isn't something you'd see in a full budget Hollywood movie but more like a straight to TV children's special.

This truly was a travesty of an amazing series and M. Night should feel ashamed for releasing something that will undoubtedly shatter hopes of a good live action version of this show ever being done. You should boycott this movie and go buy the original series if you haven't seen it because it is excellent as kid's shows go. I'd probably give it 1/4 of a star if I could because it's not even worthy of the minimum 20%.
