The Last Airbender Reviews

The dialogue is tin-eared in the extreme, the 3D is used in a strictly tokenistic fashion and the absolute lack of a sense of irony or humour makes the more solemn scenes all the more laughable.

After the first five seconds, it seems as if you have been watching it for around two-and-a-half hours, and that this time has passed in four-and-a-half days.

Please let it be the last Shyamalan.

[A] slice of self-important nonsense that's actually pretty funny, although probably not in the way Shyamalan planned.

Airbender's final insult is the unmistakable stench of a sequel that's left to linger in its wake.

August 13, 2010
Some of the performances are wooden, creating repeated moments of unintentional hilarity that cut through the dramatic tension.
August 13, 2010
The first part of a planned trilogy, Shyamalan says the sequel will be darker. Just better would be a start.

Far from the catastrophe the US bewailed, but still disappointingly clunky.

One is bored and stupefied by what seems like an eternity of vacuous spectacle, cod-Buddhist tosh and clunking dialogue.

I swiftly became bored with a repetitive and laboured film devoid of drama, tension or real emotion.

When nothing you believe or believe in is at stake, your plot-receptor mechanisms close down.

Dung fu.

August 12, 2010
A movie that's as thick as the earth, as enraging as fire, and about as watery and windy as a giant cinematic wet fart.

August 11, 2010
A dodgy script, ropey performances, atrocious 3D effects and a tendency to take itself too seriously...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 3, 2010
A derivative and lifeless 'heroes journey' tale layered up with Eastern mysticism.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 3, 2010
...a tremendously disappointing effort from a once rock-solid filmmaker.

The Last Airbender completes writer/co-producer/director M. Night Shyamalan's fall from grace; once regarded as the most exciting talent in film, he now sits pretty as the laughing stock of Hollywood.

Shyamalan has been working in cinema for more than a decade now, but none of his films are nearly as disastrous as this. It's his final plea to get his name back in Hollywood, and I don't think anyone will hear it.

I can't even tell you what this movie is about. How many more chances are we going to give this guy?

I can accurately and completely review The Last Airbender by quoting my ten-year-old daughter's own thoughts on the movie: "They messed up everything."
