Great Movie - Worth the Money, I don't understand all of the hate (by cmoorberg)
So I decided to go to this movie a long time ago after watching a preview. I had an open afternoon on Independence Day yesterday and my wife and I decided to go. I didn't even know it was based on an animated series until I started reading the comments here. I don't go to many movies in the theaters. I usually save the money for movies that look like they will be visually thrilling, or come well recommended by friends or if they're James Bond movies . Also, I am a M. Night Shyamalan fan - and yes, I even liked Lady in the Water. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire movie and I was <more>
completely surprised to see its middle to low rating on IMDb with all of the negative comments. I thought the special effects were amazing for those who disagree, you've been spoiled. This movie was stunning . The acting wasn't distractingly bad so I didn't even think about the acting quality until I read some of the comments here. The plot was pretty good for only a 2 hour movie. Long story short: -My friends recommended it -I will recommend it to other friends -It's worth the ticket price to see it in theaters -I now want to see the entire animated series -I will probably buy this when it comes out on DVD -Although not popular to the masses, Shyamalan is the man!
I loved this film. All too many times, they produce the best first, and the rest fizzle in comparison. I thought it had great build up, just enough depth, and was left with just enough questions to want the next one to come out NOW!!My son he is six thoroughly enjoyed it, I loved that there was no gore or foul language. But enough action sequence to leave you wanting more. I have no doubt the next one will step it up a notch! Not all movies need to show slicing heads, and death to be good! The morals involved, also were good, and the lack of respect shown for this film is SAD! The child <more>
actors were....OK, but the fact that they don't cloud the film with famous faces added to the credibility of the actual story. And Aang looks almost identical to the one in the animated series! Good Job!
ahhh, come on it was entertaining! (by denisemybarra)
I am speaking for myself & my little boy. This movie was entertaining. Lots of action, and vivid imagery.Was I expecting Academy award winning performances? No.I appreciated the fluid movements of the actors when they were doing the bending.The scenery was pretty amazing. Visually interesting, amazing sets. Like going on an exotic vacation.Costumes, were pretty cool too. I didn't see the 3D version because 3D bugs my eyes. Nice escape from everyday life, a good outlet, we need more fantasy, less realism/stress.I am anxious to see a part 2.
Ignore reviews, go see this film!!!! (by biggs94)
After reading many reviews saying how bad this film is, I was disappointed as I was looking forward to seeing this film. However, I saw it anyway and was extremely happy with the outcome. This film is an amazing magical adventure with: a fascinating story which kept me immersed from beginning to end, incredible action sequences and impressive special effects. Other reviews say that if you don't watch the cartoon you will have no idea what is happening. I have only ever seen 1 episode from the cartoon from series 2 so was not aware of the plot but the film tells the story very well and I <more>
was not left confused at any point. Admittedly, the acting wasn't amazing but it was nowhere near as bad as reviewers have made out with the exception of Sokkah . Even if the acting was bad I still would have deeply enjoyed this film as the plot was deeply immersive and action sequences blew me away no pun intended. The CGI , such as the Air temple, was impressive to look at, as were the different elements being thrown about in the best fight scenes I have ever seen in a film. Also, the magical aspect of the film is really awe-inspiring. This film is amazing and was not worthy of all the bad reviews. So, I advise you to ignore all the bad reviews and see this film anyway as it may just be the greatest film you see this year.
This movie was awesome, it was exciting and amazing and AH! It made my friend choke on its awesomeness! The pronunciation sucked monkey tails, but it was still awesome. The costumes were really good as well as the bending. Although, it's hard to tell genders in the earth kingdom. The props were crappy -Aang's staff was fuggin awesome! I wanted to grab the staff and go "Yeah -this is MY staff now!". It was a really fast movie, not that I can complain since it was a whole season of a show. I believe that Zuko was hot, but then again he has weird hair tuffs near his scar. You <more>
never really got too into the characters for how fast it was, but Sokka showed his comedy and boomerang awesomeness in his fighting. Aang was cute -I just wanted to pinch his cheeks o//o!! I liked watching this movie because, well, it was fuggin awesome! Okay I'm done, enjoy the movie or live a life not knowing what great awesomeness this terribly picked cast besides Sokka and Aang could show you.
Shame about the acting, but I can forgive it for a fantastic attempt. (by acorok)
I am the biggest fan of the Avatar series and was looking forward to this greatly. Although it disappointed in some ways, it was still based on such a strong storyline I couldn't not find this entertaining, especially compared to such a duff as Sorceror's Apprentice? Yes, the 3 MCs were truly dreadful, but the Texan kid who played Aang was clearly hired for his fighting skills and he had his moments of emotion, unlike the two I have to assume more experienced Water Tribe kids. Re-cast them and it would've been an entirely different movie. It can't compare to the series, <more>
because a film doesn't have the luxury of cliffhangers, but it still contained a hell of a lot of detail from an incredible action packed series. They've captured what had to be shown well and ignored the rest, which is rare from a TV to big screen conversion. I'd even forgotten some parts from the show that were in this movie, like the Blue Spirit an the assassination attempt on Zuko. Yes, the annoying Katara's voice-over was irritating, lacklustre and with more tell than show, and the dialogue was tired, but then there was so much in this film they had to pace it quickly, so I can forgive this. Later, there's so much action going on that you barely notice the bad acting anymore and that's this film's strength. It ends on a high.The important thing for me was my favourite characters, the Fire Nation guys, were great. I was dreading Zuko and Iroh's casting, as they weren't anything like they're portrayed in the cartoon, but they really worked, and were the best actors/characters in it, making the best of a bad script. They were different, but captured the essence of the characters; Zuko was almost immediately likable as a secondary protagonist and Iroh was even more gentle than his TV counterpart, with the movie not having the luxury to build up their complex characters.The 3D was a waste of time, as it only highlights the scenery, but that did add to the fantasy. The special effects were inspiring much better than Sorceror's Apprentice , especially the animals which were unusually flawless although Appa did have a weird, scary face . The fights scenes were impeccable, with the slow-mo scenes unusually good highlighting every amazing Avatar act.This film's going to be hated by most because of its major flaws and, although I see what won't be liked, I'm such an Avatar fan I can see this film for its merits. I'm going to see this again and again, and I think it'll get even better. I can't wait for the other 2 films. I just hope they recast and polish up the script a bit to show Avatar to its full potential.
I saw the screening of this movie with my sister who is 6 years old and it was an entertaining movie. It was a very good remake and i thought it was better then the cartoon version. The casts were very good and the 3-d effects were eye poppy. This is one of M Night Shyalman's best movie since Sixth Sense. I recommend this movie to everyone. It will be good but read more other reviews before watching it. Also, watch it in 3-D. It's gonna keep you on the edge of your seat and you'll never want to leave the movie. there were some sad moments and action moments and some funny moments. <more>
I'll give this movie a family fun 8/10. have fun!!!!!
The last air bender is a visual feast! (by doomas10)
After all the bad press thrown at "The last air-bender" i was expecting something horrific. Is it a bad film? Well according to my standards no. Definitely not. I will by the number what i liked and what i thought was weak.1. The actions scenes. They are wonderfully done and choreographed and since M.Night Shyalaman has used us with nice camera work, his style is clearly visible from the first shot. He has an eye for some of the most poetic fights i've seen in my life. The use also of slow motion is just phenomenal.2. The production scale. This is a film truly at a similar <more>
spectacular scope of "Lord of the rings" and "Star Wars". Besides the wonderful locations such as Greenland, the sets are just freaking massive and filled with amazing details. I was so impressed when i saw the throne room of Lord Ozai. The iced palace of the Northern water tribe, with small water falls and well crafted zen lakes, i have no words to describe its beauty. 3. The visuals. The whole film proceeds like a poem. It is so easy to watch and even if you do not care about the story, you just gaze the locations. i haven't felt like that since i saw Zang Yimou's "Hero". The addition of crystal clear and eye popping effects from Industrial Light and Magic just add extra points in this visual feast.4. The benders of the natural elements. That was something i have never seen before and as an idea is pretty much interesting to see how it will is represented on screen. This is a good idea that can produce various action-hell yes-scenes.5. The cast-OK i know this is a controversial choice but i thought the avatar child actor wasn't that bad but neither that good. Dev Patel as prince Zuko and Shaun Toub as General Iroh are awesome. Their performances are adequate and believable. I really like the relationship between these two and the way Zuko feels. 7. James Newton Howard's music. An excellent soundtrack that captures the main theme of the film.So these are the positive things i found. Now, i will mention five things i did not like.1. The duration. i mean for such a rich and expensive mythology, i would expected a full 2 hour, maybe +, film. Instead i am getting the usual 1/40 hours maximum minutes, including the credits..2. ...which brings me to my second main point. The film looks rushed. Not rushed in terms of production, but rushed as a story. There is no room to have proper acting scenes. Usually most of the film contains dialog about things that have occurred or will happened but they last 2 minutes each. We do not know how long our heroes are staying in the palace of the Northern water tribe.3. The film is trimmed! All the character development scenes have been erased for the sake of entertainment. There are so many moments where i felt like that. I wanted to know more. This reminds another case such as "Clash of the titans". People blasted the film however, they did not blasted the Hollywood machine for screwing over its directors. To cut from a film almost an hour to increase in market appeal is a horrible act. If you have seen the trailers, you will notice that half actually of the scenes in the trailers are not in the film! Lame..4... because this is great material. The mythology is rich and its good to see a new world so unbelievably stunning. The characters are intriguing but there is no explanation behind their motives. 5. Finally, major problem is the existence of narration while the camera is traveling or moving. You get to see the kids flying in the air and the girl narrates to us "we were flying in the air....". Then they land to the northern water tribe palace and bowing to the king.... "and we bowed to the king". I mean i can see that! There is no point for narration unless you want to explain something to your audience.6. The only major difference between the series and the film adaptation is the level of seriousness. In the cartoon, while everyone was so brave, there are hilarious jokes and one liners that "bend" the ice see what i did there? . The series delivered tones of excitement and fun. Aang-the avatar-is a 12 year old boy who is just discovering his powers and is aiming mostly to have fun! Unfortunately, in the film, Aang is mostly or trying to be at least, dramatic. There is no time for fun and that's why perhaps people blasted it. If you apply the above feeling to the whole movie, the atmosphere is different. The film takes itself too seriously and leaves no room for funny acts or scenes. While personally i am not annoyed, if you try to make your film look serious, then implement more scenes to explain your characters motivations, feelings and actions. To conclude, one small reference about the spirit world. In the series it is established from episode to episode but in the film, individuals are just talking about it rather than showing it or at least explaining something!It is such a shame because i loved the visual feast that this adaptation has to offer but i can see the trimming parts coming from a mile away. I really like the film that's why it has an 8/10 but I felt it could do so much more! I do hope in the future Shyalaman will restore the movie into its full glory. So this was "The last air bender". Maybe Hollywood learned its lesson about storytelling and 3D conversion process and in the sequel we will get more of the good stuff.
I'm German but I saw the movie in the US and I was surprised. After all this disappointing reviews I didn't thought that "The Last Airbender" was so good. I must say that I don't know the series "Avatar: The Last Airbender". I like fantasy epics, that's all. And this one is a very good one. The action scenes are very exciting and have a well done choreography. The movie impressed me visual. And the 3D effects are not bad. Not as good as the effects in "Avatar" by James Cameron are. The story is a classic action-fantasy story and very enjoyable. I <more>
think M. Night Shyamalan, the composer James Newton Howard and the producer Frank Marshall have done a very good work. I recommend it to everyone.
