The plot, I won't waste much time on because there are so many holes and misconceptions. I haven't seen much of the original show so I can't say much about what they got right, but come on, it's full of holes. For example, Aang is THE LAST AIRBENDER, as the title suggests. I mean come on, while the water benders can only go so much as to attack people and they've been doing it for years, he's SO SPECIAL that he can basically create a tsunami as does at the end. I got to say I laughed pretty hard at that.
The dialogue is the perfect example of how NOT to write dialogue. My favorite lines: "Is there a spiritual place where I can meditate?" "There is a very spiritual place. The city was built around it, ya know." "I'm scared. Please don't make me more scared." (I'm not kidding; I burst out laughing at that line) "Let's spar! I don't think we've sparred in quite a while." "My father WILL take me back someday and you will bow down to me." And pretty much every line mentioning "Pretty girls". Seriously, does Night actually think people talk like that???!!!
For those who may have interest in the film and are unacquainted with the original series, you undoubtedly will not enjoy the film either: the camera frames were either uncomfortably close to a character, or panning so quickly that the focus was blurry and gave you a headache. The actors' of the film were unable to portray any characteristics of the original characters, and some remained static throughout the hour and forty minute movie. The dialogue is choppy and repetitive, resembling the story one might construct in junior high. The score to the film is also unimpressive, evoking a run-of-the-mill-fantasy-film sensation in one's stomach.
In short, don’t watch it anywhere, neither in theatres nor TV or Computer.
