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.
