Critic Reviews for The Legend of Korra Book Three - Change

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

[Book 3] made us fall in love with our villains all over again while giving our main characters a chance to level up.

Book 1 ended with a tearful triumph. Book 2 raised a giant question mark. Book 3 trickles off with bittersweet elegance.

It was a fantastic story that was superbly written and beautifully animated.

"The Terror Within" was an exciting episode.

The content itself triggers so many different feelings, but when you factor in all the frustration, anger, and fear summoned by the massive clusterf--- that was this season's distribution strategy, Book Three becomes an emotional hurricane.

The Legend of Korra is king when it comes to action set-pieces.

I am so incredibly on-board with an evil airbending character. Bring it on!

Jul 2, 2014 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

It's maybe the highest compliment I can give: It's Game of Thrones for kids.

A strong villain with a grudge against the Avatar and a world spanning adventure recalls the original Avatar: The Last Airbender series and in my opinion can only mean good things for The Legend of Korra.

Audience Reviews for The Legend of Korra: Book Three - Change

  • 6d ago
    Season 3 of the Legend of Korra is a refreshingly down to earth season. The threat wasn't necessarily world ending, but rather two conflicting and necessary ideologies. The main antagonist, Zaheer (voiced incredibly by Henry Rollins), is one of the best on-screen villains I have ever seen.

    I'm not going to compare Korra with Aang, but I like Korra in spirit and character. The end of the third book is very touched, the best season of all)

    I'm not the target audience and while it's not among my favourite shows I can appriciate it.

    *lady gaga voice* talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, showstopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique

    -Great but inconsistent artstyle. -Interesting and educational but very poorly handled themes, with false, sometimes even morally wrong resolutions/quintessences. -Major violation of various basic principles of fiction storywriting, and forced plots, resulting in a lot of bland exposition, poor conveying of important character motivation, and biased points of view. (The mystery is dispelled, as simple "magic" granted arbitrarily by gods.) -Unnecessary and subjectively very bad chosen explanations for the world and its laws, sometimes in conflict with the original series (incosnsistent rules to bending and spirit realm, very flawed origin story, technological bs). -dumbed down, two dimensional and stereotypical characters with little to no (or just the pretense of) development. Especially the unintellectual, tantrum throwing bully protagonist with anger issues, who gets everything handed on a silver platter and never really has to deal with the consequences. (And if it happens, it isn't shown). And the beloved Characters and their legacy from the original series are handled despicably. -Comedy theatrics are obnoxious and often out of place. -The world of charming traditional asian cultures from the original series were discarded for a cold, western steampunk setting, which gives the series a totally different feel, and imo not for the better. All in all, it's avatar, but with less of most what made the original series great, unnecessary additions, and a sour aftertaste.

    My favorite season of avatar ever. It ties together the other seasons so well (which is truly impressive given how the studio had been messing around ordering seasons up until this point). They tie in ramifications directly from the last season and it drives the main plot of this one! Our avatar is now a mature, confident young lady who can resolve conflicts not just through power but discussion as well. Faced with a world that is changing around her she has to not only adjust to it herself but also help everyone else adjust to it as well. And amidst all this turmoil, of course, our villains have adjusted rather well to the change and desire the world to change even further... how much change is good, how much is bad? What is the avatar willing to sacrifice to find a good balance for the world? It's so well done and Korra is likeable throughout. The other characters feel like they play important roles as well, and seeing the air nation interact and grow is a really wonderful thing. Great, great season.

    Everything comes to a head in Book 3. The writing feels crafted and focused; the characters are complex and evolving; and the villains are daunting and sympathetic. With this season, Korra now stands even with its predecessor and packs a needed emotional gut punch to the franchise.

    Amazing, another great show from the creators. Tuly amazing to watch, eveyone should give it a go.

    Disappointed. Was hoping they would recover after that horrible movie but instead they made Korra and based it around an unhealthy love triangle. Marco was ok in season 1 and down right hatable in season 2. Should have spent more time on the avatar story and a lot less on the back and forth relationships between several main characters.
  • Jun 21, 2016
    Worst Avatar show ever. 1. The hero is a temperamental hot head with no logic OR common scenes. Rushing into danger and never learning from it. She ruins the show and the avatar legacy. Basically every plot involves Korra losing her temper and making a reckless unrealistic decision. 2. Action is boring and predictable. Basically 3 shots are fired and the 3rd always hits. Spoiler 3. POOR WRITING: Unlikeable characters. They were anti-logical, puerile, and unintelligent. They even made the appearances of old characters from the original series unlikeable and uneventful. 4. Unbalanced unfunny humor. It just gots worst and worst. If you like the uncute things kids say, OR stupidly pointless and random humor… you might like it.
