The Last Airbender (2010) is terrible.

There must be a court case pending bought by actors who, by associating with M. Night Shyamalan have had their acting careers damaged or ended. A brilliant first film with Sixth Sense (whether you saw the end coming or not) and it was sharply downhill from there. How many.chances does this toxic director get? Certainly more than the actors in this, many of whom disappeared without trace.
It's dull and full of contradictions. At one point, the character of Prince Zuno shouts to the retreating airbender 'You've nowhere to run' Duh. This child can manipulate the world around him with his unlimited powers. Running? I think he can do whatever he pleases, usekess and tepid villain. Except entertain. Some nice individual imagery doesn't save a cobfused and lifeless film.

barring three or four minor issues this is a nearly flawless representation of the first book. If you disagree remove the stick from your colon and watch this after the series.

No, just no. It's a disgrace to such an awesome show. Please watch that instead. Avatar: The Last Airbender, it's by nickelodeon. The effects were ok. But it doesn't matter if you throw effects at a turd because its still a poorly acted, badly written, non faithful to a brilliant show turd that should be vaporised into dust.

It was the worse adaptation/movie/ thing I have seen with my two eyes.This was literally the saddest most disappointing movie. Even the main actor said he's embarrassed to be part of it and people who have met the avatars actor said he was put under pressure to act a certain way.

Let me just begin with saying THIS MOVIE MAKES NO SENSE! I hate this movie. You know why ? Here is why this movie is trying to fix something what isn't broken. I don't want you to watch this movie so I am just warning you. This movie does something what a lot of people do with animes take it to live action. This is a big mistake the last airbender had no business being in live action. Maybe I should also say that it's actors are pretty bad at playing their characters. Aang is not nearly so serious, Katara is not nearly so idiotic, Sokka is not so smart, and Zuko is pretty accurate. Needless to say i just hate this movie it makes the last airbender the show seem like a one time event that we only got to experience once. People you don't have to agree if I am wron just make a knew review about how good it is. Which I doubt but hey why not.

As a fan of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series, I was greatly disappointed with the poor acting, mispronunciation, and lack of chemistry between these "actors". Done correctly, this movie could have been great. At the same time it was doomed for failure as they tried to put so many episodes into one short movie. It didn't allow the story to develop like it should have or show the true struggle of the citizens and the main characters against the Fire Nation. At the time of this review, it has a 6% on the tomatometer. I, personally, think that is a bit high for the horrible directing and acting.

How could someone mess up so badly? How could a director take an amazing show, and make people want to throw popcorn at their screen? The acting was terrible, costumes and make up disgraceful, animation dreadful . . . could I hate it more? Why was Aang's name pronounced wrong? Why was everyone white? Why was it casted so horribly wrong? Why did Zuko look like he got a little sunburn instead of a painful scar? I mean . . . you couldn't have done worse. People that heard the story line and were intrigued, please, go watch the show. It has the same story line, but you'll be smiling instead of snickering. The TV show was funny, inspirational, unique, and just simply perfect. I'm still in shock that the movie messed up so badly.

This movie is legit pretty horrible from bad acting by literally everybody, to the lame condensed plot, to mispronouncing everyone's name to loads of inconsistencies between it and itself and the show (earthbenders in an earth prison?, fire bending needs a source? everyone is indian for some reason?).

However personally I have a great time every time I watch this since it's just so hilariously bad. Every time I find something embarrassing I missed before. Watching it with friends is a blast since it's so easy to continually poke fun of. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I love this movie.

If you do want to see a compelling real life adaptation of the series however, I have some bad news for you...

So much wrong with this movie. Pacing is terrible, characters are inconsistent, and (I know it's kinda petty) the pronunciation of SO MANY things is just wrong. I mean, come on, there's LITERALLY 3 seasons of source material that I'm sure not one person associated with this movie bothered to review.

Watching this movie now on tv. It hurts my brain. I loved the animated version of both Avatar Aang and Avatar Korra. This live action movie betrays the animated version, word pronounciation and how the characters are portrayed. Even the parody episode in the animated version was better. There is no point for sequels if the will all be like this....

Aweful acting, the earthbenders prison is is.. get it, litterally outside where they could bend all they wanted to. it has no joy, nor emotion, the races are all wrong compared to the actual cartoon. Its a disgrace to the franchise.

Better than Star Wars The Last Jedi at least... but that is not saying much.
