THE LAST AIRBENDER (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

The Last Airbender has all the earmarks for a great piece of entertainment but fails in its presentation and universal appeal. The acting works at below par. While M. Night Shymalan movies (like Signs and The Sixth Sense) sets expectations for great entertainment, this one does not make the grade.

Storyline

An avatar must prevent an unbalancing of the four elements.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director M. Night Shyamalan for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Scott Aversano, Michael Dante DiMartino, Kathleen Kennedy, and Bryan Konietzko for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include:  Aang (Noah Ringer), Prince Zuko (Dev Patel), Katara (Nicola Peltz), Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), Uncle Iroh (Shaun Toub), Commander Zhao (Aasif Madvi), Fire Lord Ozai (Cliff Curtis), Princess Yue (Seychelle Gabriel), Katara’s Grandma (Katharine Houghton), Master Pakku (Francis Guinan), Monk Gyatso (Damon Gupton), Azula (Summer Bishil), Old Man in Temple (Randall Duk Kim), and Earthbending Father (Keong Sim).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Unbreakable works at a much higher entertainment level than this movie.
