Very disappointing. Bad acting and little character development. Even the cg effects for bending was lame. 2 kids find some kid in a block of ice, little is explained because this movie assumes you already expect it to suck compared to the show, they cling to him without little explanation because of course, he's the avatar. There was a little romance/ tragedy bit but who gives a shit, it wasn't developed enough. All in all I'm hoping the second movie, assuming there is one, will be an improvement.
Better then I thought, I won't say it's for an older audience although an older audience would appreciate this film more then kids under the age of 10. It is rated PG for Parental Guidance so parents can guide there kids out of the movie theater and probably later bitch about it to Disney. I enjoyed it overall but did not like the whole dance sequence with the Mad Hatter. For a moment I was worried the film would end with a hip hop dance and musical number.
I will give it 2 stars just because it was somewhat entertaining. The reason for that it doesn't get 5 is because:
1. Bad white Actors
2. Every time I look into your eyes, I see my paradise.
3. Crappy effects
4. Made me want to kill myself before the title screen even came out.
But you know what maybe the problem is me. Maybe the problem isn't the crappy film. The problem must be that I watched this crappy film. Just maybe.
Watched this because they were sold out of Avatar tickets for IMAX in 3D. Overall it was okay. Good gore scenes, acting was okay. Definitely a good change from the whole pussification of vampires. Though if vampires were living normal lives, why does the costume designer always have to go with dark, bland, neutral color clothes? To make sure we don't forget they're vampires?
