If you were planning on seeing Avatar the Last Airbender...DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY...PLEASE Heed my WORDS...
 
First off, everything is muffed up...The way that they say the names...Sokka has become So-ka, Aang has become Ong, and Iroh, has become Ear-O...That not ever the worst part...
 
They didn't stick to the plot at ALL, everything is terrible. The special effects are bad, and everything is just terrible...Character choices...I won't even go into it ....
 
Uggghhh...You know how you wait for something for so long, and then you get it, and you completly face-palm when you get it..That's what this movie is...a big FAILING, FACE PALM

Now you know how I felt when I saw Spider-man 3.

That bad, huh? Yeah I kinda figured it would suck given how Aang doesn't even look like the one from the series.

I can see where you're coming from...But this was by far way worse than those...I mean...All of those are at least watchable...I attempted to leave three times during the movie, but was stopped by my brother...
 
The Dialog was horrid wretched trash...There was this part where Aang said "Some of the greatest monks would meditate for four days" and I said "Okay, what does that have to do with anything" and people laughed...Then when the movie was over, I said, "THAT WAS SOME BULL SHIT, and I got a round of applause" 
 
that's how bad it was...

Of course it sucked I could tell when I saw the previews and M. Night Shamlyluul...whatever was directing it....and he wrote it. Signs was a great movie but he's not  great director-writer.

Really? Damnit. It got 9% critical reception which is worse than Dragonball evolution and Transformers 2. i knew from the trailer something was off. the spirit wasnt there. At least Lee's Hulk got 63% because of the direction and at least Bruce Banner was a 3-d character, you know all he's emotions and struggles with the beast within. But was too long and boring in some parts. like a drama. But ugh, why M Night? why? They gave you a beautiful work of art and u gave us back this $hit? I dont know if i want to waste my money to watch it anymore. i was gonna go on tuesday.

I didn't think it would be good. 
 
It was something I was going to see as a movie on it's own, not as a "Avatar: The Last Airbender" movie. That way I won't be soooo pissed off by that part atleast.

I just came from the theaters from seeing The Last Airbender... it was about Average... nothing that I expected it to be though... The Fight Scenes were Lackluster... and the Movie jumped from this scene to that scene without much explanation at all of what was going on in terms of plot... overall I would give the movie 6 out of 10... it was Bad but not Too Too Bad... the Cartoon is much better though...

Do ya wanna know something? the director wasnt ever aware of the bad review!!! i knew the movie will not be good when he cast aang as a white kid, no office! the firebenders in the movie cannot even create fire! he removed what made the cartoon so fucking awesome! he made aang way too serious, ugh

God Fucking Dammit M. Night!! You have truly shamed me. I started watching Avatar with my lil bro 4 weeks ago and since then I absolutely love that show. I mean damn, I knew it wouldn't be Avatar (the Cameron one lol)-level goodness, but damn. Not only that, but I just defended M. Night on a thread a few hours ago. I am really sad now.

@Nova`Prime`: Good point. It works better when you compare that "Best pic", to the comics.

but seriously did you expect The Last Airbender movie to be JUST LIKE the Cartoon... I mean you knew there were gonna be differences in certain things from the Cartoon... that should have been accepted before you saw the film itself... now the films Lagging and Lackluster Action Scenes was what made it somewhat Wack to me...

Haven't seen it yet, but after reading Screened's review of the movie and this thread and hearing more about it...I'm just waiting for the DVD, But I just re-watched the last episode's of the series, and it shows that a movie based off this show wouldn't work because there's there's just to much to put into a movie, even if it was broken up into three movies like the show is with three books there's still too much in each book to fully capture in a movie, even if you take out some of the episodes, which there are a few that people wouldn't need to understand the plots, but still, there's too many chapters that would need to be shown for people to understand what the heck's going on. In truth, this is one of those shows that are just to hard to convert into a movie....

#49 Posted by Tomokata (461 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh, this makes me want to cry.  My daughter and I have been waiting to see this (I've been very, very hopeful) since it was announced in pre-production.  I was VERY worried because Shamalamadingdong was writing AND directing, and it seems I was right. 
 
My daughter doesn't even want to go see it now, and not from what I've been reading here, only from the trailers and "sneak peaks" they're showing.  It's not good when a twelve year old is storming around the house about what a piece of crap your movie is. 
 
Source material.  Respect it.
