It's a nice movie to look at, as long as you ignore the characters, plot, and action.

It seems as if a good film could be made out of The Last Airbender's tale. But this is not that film.

The characters are completely uninvolving, the narrative incomprehensible for the most part, and the performances seem to reflect the bewilderment of the plot.

Why do the water tribe have so much difficulty defeating their fire opponents when the battle takes place on the ocean?

Unspeakably bad dialogue delivered by excruciatingly bad actors in a plot so illogical and stupid it kills unicorns.

Shyamalan tells the story like a syndicated news journalist, reporting events with detached direction and lifeless, plot-driven screenwriting.

The worst part is undoubtedly the script, which clunks and groans all the way under the weight of it's own exposition - tragically and unforgivably, it fails to tell a good story.

The mythology of the series doesn't translate well to the demands of concise big screen storytelling.

It is in writer/director Shyamalan's dialogue that the film grinds to a halt. His words have grown increasingly pompous and stilted since his concise, crisp, Oscar-nominated script for The Sixth Sense.

September 16, 2010
This empty, misfired epic from M. Night Shyamalan is boring and strengthens the claim that he is the worst director working in mainstream cinema today.

If sleep is a hard thing to come by, then a dose of M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender is just the cure for you.

Being a Shyamalan film, the entire cast (which also includes Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel as an exiled Fire Prince) recite their looney-tunes lines as if they have been drugged, then hypnotised, then drugged again.

A big ol' mess of atrocious acting and terrible scripting, The Last Airbender is a definite nominee for worst film of 2010.

With poorly executed action, wooden acting and a dead script, this fantasy film is a strong contender for a Razzie.

Parents may be less easily pleased, finding the film a tad dull and lifeless, for all its elements.

Shyamalan has written a muddled, confusing script and directed it badly
August 26, 2010
$150,000,000 well wasted. The Last Airbender is an insult to those wanting sophisticated, entertaining or even competent cinema.

Even pre-teens will have to endure the fragmented plot lines, stilted acting, and an absence of humor.

Some of the worst acting, action and dialogue you'll endure this year.
