The Last Airbender by M.Night Shyamalan

Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Released By: Paramount Pic.
Premier: July 1, 2010
Brief Summary

The story started with Katara and Sokka discovering Aang in a block of ice with Appa. Aang as the Avatar was captured by banished prince Zuko; But immediately escaped. Katara, Aang and Sokka decided to travel to the Northern Water Tribe. In their journey, they will pass through the Earth Kingdom and help some tribe to be free from the hands of the Fire Nation. When they reached the Northern Water Tribe, here comes commander Zhao which is hungry to power and want to colonize the tribe at the same time capture the avatar. The avatar shows here power to save the tribe and they won. The story continue to the Earth Kingdom.


I know that when a film was adapted from a certain source like book or animation, some scenes are edited. In animation, Iroh already know that Aang is the avatar but in the movie he needs to make a test putting the elements in front of him then if those move, he is the avatar. The scene also which is equivalent to the Imprisoned chapter of the animation, Haru was caught because the old man that he saved told the fire nation soldiers that he is an earthbender. In the movie, he was caught because Haru was throwing rocks on the soldiers and they not stated that he uses earth bending.
The acting of the characters is also a great disappointment. You will feel that how they stated their dialogs, there is no feelings. It is like just talking with a friend. In a movie acting should be the priority.
Shyamalan depended on the CGI effects which he think will encourage people to watch. The reason why many people watch it because of the advertisement but when they go out of the theater they will say the movie is a fail.

Rating: 2 good
