The Last Airbender Movie Review

I cannot call the Last Airbender a movie. That would be offensive to movies. I can call it trash, however. Wait. That may be offensive to trash.

This movie had no cohesive structure, and in consequence, neither will this review. It doesn’t deserve to be analyzed with order.

The acting in this film is terrible. There is not one actor who stood out. They are all equally bad at portraying other people with valid emotion. Each and every actor brought one another down. Though the source material is readily available, every name and piece of lore was pronounced incorrectly.

Shamalamalan chose to make the fire nation a race of Indians, which would be completely acceptable, except for the fact that it’s completely off from the source material. Completely. This director has no consideration to the source material in which he is basing his movie.

That’s just one ignorant flaw in which Shamalamalan disregards the source material. And to be clear, I’m no fan boy. I haven’t seen every episode or am an expert on Avatar. I’ve simply seen the show, and this idiot decides to disregard it.

The script is barely worthy to be written on a role of toilet paper. These characters are given bones and told to make a Filet. It can’t happen. Read this:

Zuko: [preparing to fight] Who are you?

Katara: My name is Katara. And I’m the only Waterbender left in the Southern Water Tribe.

There is absolutely no reason why Katara would announce her status as a Waterbender to the bad guy, as it is a self-incriminating piece of knowledge. Shamalamalan so clumsily puts character backstory into dialogue in a way that is obvious and empty. The script is garbage.

The plot makes no cohesive sense. It’s a bunch of scenes from the cartoon stitched together by a blind idiot.

The directing and cinematography was so detached and style-less that it hurt. It’s like nobody cared. This pile of garbage was made without passion, and you can feel it.

The visuals were pretty nice, but I don’t want to live in a world where looks can make up for the lack of heart. This slice of crap is Catfood. I don’t even want to talk about it anymore.

  1. Ouch. I know nothing about the source material, but I liked the movie. I didn’t love it, mind you, and it wasn’t GREAT, but it was entertaining. I thought the world they built was interesting, at least.

    • The universe that is presented is interesting. If you are interested, at least partially, watch the cartoon. You cannot credit Shamalamalan (yes, I incorrectly spell his name intentionally) for building this world. It was all there for him to use. He simply animated it. This movie is absurd. Maybe I have a stronger distaste because I am familiar with the source material, but regardless, it was poorly done.
