About the Movie

The Last Airbender is an upcoming 2010 Action-adventure fantasy film based on the first season of the highly successful Emmy-winning animated television series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. It is a live-action film adaptation of the animated television series produced by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies. It is planned to be the first film in the The Last Airbender trilogy. The series, influenced by Asian art, mythology and various martial arts fighting styles, was created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, and was adapted by M. Night Shyamalan, who will also direct and produce the film along with Frank Marshall, Kathleen Kennedy, Sam Mercer and Scott Aversano. Filming began in mid-March 2009; the movie is scheduled to be released on July 2, 2010.

The film stars Noah Ringer as Aang, a reluctant hero who prefers adventure over his job as the Avatar. Aang, and his friends Katara and Sokka journey to the North Pole to find a Waterbending master to teach Aang and Katara the secrets of the craft. At the same time, Fire Lord Ozai, the current Fire Lord of the Fire Nation, is waging a seemingly endless war against the Earth Kingdom, the Water Tribes, and the already vanquished Air Nomads. The film also stars Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, and Dev Patel.

Movie Reviews

Movie Review from

By design or otherwise, M. Night Shyamalan will never occupy the middle ground. He’s the self-anointed auteur dressing B-movie genres in A-movie glamour, his becalmed style — autumnal, serious, tricksy — attempting to blend Spielberg with Kubrick: high adventure at a snail’s pace. But this former golden boy is now a laughing stock: Lady In The Water über-flopped, and his psycho-pollen thriller The Happening was by any reckoning misconceived. Things appear to have got worse. American critics, braying like a pack of hounds, have spilled loud, vituperative scorn on his latest, a would-be fantasy epic. Tedious! Nauseating! Incompetent! Hamstrung by a last-minute conversion into 3D! Hateful wouldn’t be putting too fine a word on it.

There are a lot of benders in M. Night Shyamalan’s latest.

There are Firebenders, Earthbenders and Waterbenders. There’s only one Airbender though. In many ways, he’s the biggest bender of them all.

Done chortling? Good. Because there are many other things to laugh at besides the fact that ‘bender’ has certain childish connotations this side of the pond.

By both critical and commercial measures, live-action anime adaptations boast a record of futility second perhaps only to videogame adaptations. Some essential aspect of the source material is irretrievably lost during the process of translating Japanese cartoon to Hollywood tentpole, something that even the most bloated visual effects budget can’t conceal. Think Dragonball Evolution and Speed Racer.

The English language can be a treacherous and slippery thing, with some entirely innocuous words changing their character as they cross the Atlantic. This has sadly been the case with the new movie from M Night Shyamalan, which has just arrived here from Hollywood, a deeply serious and long fantasy epic – the first in a number of parts, in fact – based on an animated TV series. For a British audience, the film’s language is inadvertently flavoured by associations and nuances that are vulgar, abusive, and very, very unfortunate indeed.

If M Night Shyamalan’s po-faced fantasy epic were half as much fun as its ridiculous title suggests, it might have been possible to salvage a smidgen of entertainment from it. Instead, one is bored and stupefied by what seems like an eternity of vacuous spectacle, cod-Buddhist tosh and clunking dialogue. Even more embarrassing than the risible ‘Lady in the Water’, this wildly misjudged farrago is portentous but never profound, laughable but not remotely funny and action-packed without ever being exciting – all in fuzzy, retro-fitted 3D.

This is a kid’s movie that doesn’t seem to realize that it’s a kid’s movie. It moves slowly and solemnly and only comes alive in the way that kids enjoy in fits and starts. (The screening I attended was sold out with under-10s and they liked it when people got kicked in the butt and bonked on the head, otherwise they were restless and clomping up and down the aisles and kicking my seat.) But it made me think of this one boring, bad kid movie I saw as a child called The Island at the Top of the World.

He used to be a golden boy, a Hitchcock-in-waiting. These days everything M Night Shyamalan touches turns to ordure. And The Last Airbender, based on an animated television series, is a veritable man-mountain of dung, a quite breathtakingly inept hodge-podge of vapid spirituality, playground chopsocky and visual effects that take 3D to an entirely new level: Zero-D.

    This is by far the worst movie I watch this whole year! It was a waste of money and time. I can’t believe how horrible it was. Truly truly disappointing. =(

    Ok so first and foremost i am going to say this…if you are a fan of the original Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon than you should NOT watch this movie. The characters names are all mispronounced for one down fall…the elements in which they were supposed to be bending are all delayed. It seemed as if the “reaction” happened a full minute after the move was made. And if you know the original show, Ang is a whimsical kind of character who does not like fighing. He’s not the type of person who just stands up to the fire nation. Sokka is more of a jokester and the art of water bending is more lik Tai-Chi…not whatever Katara was doing in the movie. There was hardly any 3D effects in the movie which is a down fall also. To sum this all up….THIS MOVIE IS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. (I blame it all on the director)
