@ Wolfy

I know they did. I just copied and pasted the review from what I put on facebook. And in the show, it is not three years. It is about sixth months, in time for the summer solstice. But yeah, they mentioned it, but they mine as well of just changed it all together since they stupefied what it does.

Being a fan does help with analyzing the movie, but people should be able to see that it is some ass when they watch it. As a fan, yes I paid attention to the bending. But 5 guys to move a tiny rock? Then another guy raising a slab in one motion? That stupid 'logic' is used throughout the entire movie and anyone with a half a brain should be like 'fuck?'. It seems some people are getting "fans" mixed up with people that don't have an attention span of a fish. I mean come on! The movie is bad! All the good is this: Music, sets, scale, outfits, and occasionally the cinematography. Everything else is bad! Which accounts for 4/5s of the movie! Come on!

Technically there's four 'books', but two were compressed into a single season, hence 3.

Why would there need to be a fourth book?  I mean, Aang already knew airbending, and each book dealt with a specific element?  (I only ask because when it was still in 'new episodes', I had briefly wondered about a 'book 4'.)

So yeah...went to see it last night...it wasn't great, but it wasn't overly terrible. I'm relaxed with movies though. I can find the good in just about any movie that isn't outright stupid or filled with butt jokes.

Though one thing really made my eye twitch...Katara and the way she said the word 'Avatar'...also the mispronouncing of so many names. It's not like a book where names could be debatable. There was a TV show with their names spoken in every damn episode.

And what's with the Firebenders not being able to create fire? Even the most low level of firebenders in the show could do that. *shrugs*

I agree with Michi. I actually did like the movie, despite its drawbacks. My biggest beefs with it were the mispronunciation of names and the somewhat sub-par acting (Noah Ringer and the girl who played Katara didn't impress me too much), but I think the biggest issue is that, simply, it's an entire season of an animated show compressed into an hour-and-a-half live-action movie. It's a foregone conclusion that it won't be as good as the series that it's based off of, so I went into the theatre not to see an adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, but just to see a movie, no bias involved. As an adaptation, yes, I think it certainly did drop the ball, but as a movie I thought it was rather good and, dare I say it, I'm considering going to see it in 3D.

While Noah Ringer probably looked the closest to his source character, I did really enjoy how into it Dev Patel seemed as Zuko. And while Shaun Toub didn't look like Uncle Iroh, I think he did well with the part (very relaxed till he's forced to act). Other than those two...yeah, the acting wasn't that great. I do hope that Azula goes completely nuts by the end of it. That would be nice.
