The Last Airbender

I went to see The Last Airbender tonight and must say that it was umm, very interesting.  Actually it was pretty terrible.  The plot of the movie is pretty simple:  boy does not want to fulfill his destiny, but then realizes he needs to since everyone is dead because of him, so now he must master his powers to save the world.

It is a pretty stupid movie.  The acting is terrible, the CGI is lackluster, the story makes no sense.  This whole bender thing is just ridiculous.  Why do they have to use hardcore karate movies to make the elements do anything?  Naturally everyone has to wear the colors of their respective element tribe.  Also, no one uses their power to kill anyone simply.  Like an airbender should just suck the air out of someone’s lungs or if a waterbender can form ice around people, why not just shoot an ice dart into their chest?  Just idiotic.

The entire time someone would mention a bender, it made me think of the greatest robot of all time:

  1. Might I recommend a viewing of the source material, Avatar: The Last Airbender? After seeing the movie I took in all three seasons of the show and found myself wondering how they could have screwed it up. There is such rich source material filled with color, humor, and life.

  2. I have heard that the original is very good (although, it always reminds me of Inuyasha for some reason)…i may check it out at some point.
