Um...its out today. 12am release...ya know. And I will put here what I put on facebook.
The Last Airbender: 4/10 TLA suffers from a terrible script and extreme pacing issues. With the makings of an epic, like amazing sets and good score, the delivery causes it to suck dramatically. The movie is too short for the content, and the characters are hollow. While most scenes would work good with build up, the lack there of makes it comedic. Scenes are too short and explinations are few. There are few redeeming qualities, and even moving into the fiom with optimism, no amount can overpower the points in which the film falls short. It is more of a quick live action over view of the series than anything. ... See MoreDont get me wrong, it couod of been amazing. Artisticly stunning sets, ok actors, solid atmosphere and epic music are all present. Just script and pacing. Sent the movie spiraling down, the film never really picking up. It also suffers from misplaced scenes taken from the show, some that are supposed to be in season THREE. Not ONE. Positive things to say: Uncle Iroh's character is amazing and on spot. Sets are mimd boggling. Bending is excellent.
More Negative: Romance goes far too quick, as bad as the original twilight film. Sozin's Comet is NEVER mentioned and the reason the Fire Nation fears the Avatar is a completely different reason than in the original plot. The movie could of been SO MUCH MORE. Negative: The moves for bending are inconsistent and over exaggerated. Simple moves require an entire interperative dance while something far more dangerous, big, and eoic can be done in one movement. They also needed COOLER bending.
