What a horriable movie, sad too becaue it could of been really good
Such a disappointment! This movie had so much potential. I think that anyone who enjoyed the cartoon would watch this no matter what. So they just threw a movie together to make some money. THe director wanted to put his "own spin" on the movie.
Making it a much darker version, and taking away the fun and full characters we knew and loved.
I wish they wouldn't of messed with the movie so much, or picked a different director. Google how much he made to make this film and its sick. He took the money and ran!
Notice you dont see any other ones? Their a ton left to be told about this movie, but it did so bad they shut down the making of the 2nd film, Thanks alot of ruining something that could of been alot of fun.

Perhaps the Worst Film Ever Made
Roger Ebert begins his review of "The Last Airbender" with the following passage: "'The Last Airbender' is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented. The laws of chance suggest that something should have gone right. Not here."
Ebert's description is not an exaggeration.
Those who have never seen Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender (the animated series on which the film is based) will hate the film because of its incomprehensible plot, dreadful acting, poor writing, and awful fight choreography. Those who are fans of the animated series will hate the movie for all these reasons and many more--namely, the racially absurd casting, the radical alterations to the characters' personalities, and the perplexing choices regarding what elements of the series were kept and which ones were omitted. There is no audience whom this movie will please. Even younger children will find the movie boring and uninteresting. It lacks the frantic intensity needed to succeed as an action film, lacks the character development and quality writing needed to succeed as a drama, and lacks any humor whatsoever.
The movie also fails to fall into the "so bad it's good" category. Whereas some films like "The Room" and "Troll 2" are so awful that their failure actually becomes entertaining, this film is so awful that it's just downright painful. Beyond the problems already listed, the story is told primarily through exposition revealed through either narration or dialogue. There was no effort to tell the story by using visuals, despite the fact that this is the primary reason that films (as opposed to books) are used to tell stories.
The animated series is fantastic and could be enjoyed by viewers of almost any age because it balances drama, action, and comedy extremely well in the context of a continuous, rewarding 61-episode narrative. Considering the superb quality of the source material, it is difficult to imagine how this film could have been a bigger disappointment, particularly considering the film's $150 million dollar budget. Most of that money clearly went to the poorly rendered visual effects. The movie is in fact so reliant on visual effects that it utterly fails to suspend the viewer's disbelief: there is virtually no moment in this film where one will forget that he or she is watching a movie. The wooden acting does not help in this regard: if the characters are unable to get immersed in their fictitious world, then how in the world can we get immersed in it? This is why Mick LaSalle described the film as a "dull, boring, poorly acted, limply written and thoroughly unappealing fantasy, featuring bland characters locked in a struggle of no interest."
Of course, one may wonder why I purchased the film given the content of this review. I purchased it solely because I am currently writing a critical review in which I argue that this film is in fact the worst movie ever made. The Blu Ray disc in this set contains a 9-part documentary that I considered required viewing for that sort of project. And I believe this is the only kind of justification one can reasonably offer for buying this movie: if you want something entertaining or even remotely interesting, you must look elsewhere.

Very cheap, great value!
I bought this product to own an official copy of this movie, not something pirated off some random website. My likes about this product were that it was very cheap for a BR disc, and BR is extremely high definition. My only dislike about this product is the fact that for some reason, I cannot find any of the special features that were suppose to be included in the BR version. It seems as though this product only included the DVD...
