The Last Airbender

A young Avatar must master all elements to stop the Fire Nation from enslaving nations.


Why watch this film?

After a series of low-budget films that became a hit with both audiences and critics, such as 'Signs' and 'The Sixth Sense', filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan ventured into blockbusters with 'The Last Airbender', an adaptation of the animated series 'Avatar: The Legend of Aang'. And even though the movie has become one of the biggest failures of the director's career, both with audiences and critics, it is interesting to observe the style and particular narrative of Shyamalan in this interpretation of the cartoon. There are mysterious characters, narrative layers that emerge and some small twists. Of course, it's not a good movie - there are plot holes, embarrassing moments and a lot of things badly explained. But it's interesting to watch to understand this other side of the filmmaker, with special effects and more budget, and to peek into how the 'Avatar' universe jumps onto the big screen.
