Went tonight to see The Last Airbender. This movie is based on the animated TV Series: Avatar: The Last Airbender. If you haven't seen the TV Series, I highly recommend. Definetly one that both parents and kids can watch together. I have been waiting almost 2 years for this movie to get release... and honestly, I wasn't disappointed. I had to wait till tonight to see it, so I was already reading a lot of the fan attacks on the movie, and a lot of reviews on it. Almost all professional reviewers slammed the movie, and the Facebook group is not very possitive. However, my take.... it was a good movie... there are somethings that could be improved, but that is true for most movies. If you have read the Harry Potter books, and then look at the movies... you can then have an understanding of what happens with this transition from TV to Movie. They combined elements from the entire first season, into this first movie. 20 1hr episodes, condensed to about 2 hours. Somethings were not included, some things were altered, the story line is also a bit accelerated. And a handfull of season 2 and season 3 were introduced in this first movie. The core elements stay true, but there are some differences. I recommend watching the Nick special on the movie, and some of the biggest changes are explained. The martial arts were okay, but not enough of them in my opinion. The bending usage was used well, sometimes it was a little "intresting". If you are a fan of the show, you are going to have to relax a little in what you know, and what you are expecting in the movie. There are some changes, and you already "know" the characters... but the movie characters don't get developed completely... just not enough time to develop 4 main characters plus some of the key other ones. I enjoyed it... and this is probably going to be one BluRay packed with extras. As M. already said he filmed a lot that didn't make it into the movie. I hope they do get to continue and make another. First 5 days numbers where near $75mil, and the movie was only $150mil to make... so they are going to make a profit on this one. For a more "Martial Art" movie, Karate Kid is your better bet right now. But this one was still very enjoyable.
