omg. I cant believe how unspeakably unbearable that movie must have been for people without the first clue what the show was about. For now, Ill just rant about the ending. Was a single Fire Nation ship even destroyed in that wall-of-water nonevent? Thats the problem when you dont embrace the idea of the Ocean Spirit exacting revenge. There are certain things that Aang wouldnt do even in the Avatar State but that a vengeful elemental spirit would find all too easy.
When what was whispered by the lovers in a cave as they blazed a trail toward freedom will be shouted from the mountain tops. When the world finally sees that the hopes of the little girl from a crumbling Southern Water Tribe are the same as the dreams of the boy in the iceberg. We will begin the next great chapter in the Avatar Saga with one word- KATAANG!
I was very excited. Then got mad very quickly when they mispronounced the most important word- Avatar. I stayed mad for most of the movie and it only got worse. I think I was one of the only ones in that theater that was a big fan and I kept whispering to my brother all of the mistakes and disappointments. That was my major reaction, angering disappointment. New director and writer please.

I myself was disappointed by the film because I thought it wasn't so much the actor's fault - but the script/production of it. The film took a lot of what made Avatar great out of the movies. The only believable actor, in my opinion, was Dev Patel. Otherwise, the rest of the actors/actresses were like automatons. There was little depth, and a lot of plot holes that made the film lack a continuity and flow. Granted, it's hard to convert a season of a series to - at most - a 2 hour movie, but it seemed like Shymalan didn't really pull the important things from the series, or really anything that gave the film a flow.
I think one of my biggest issues was the portrayal of firebending - it was completely different from the show, and with the way it was portrayed, it called into question the entire Fire Nation's dominance over the other bending groups. If their power solely depended on them having pre-existing fire with them, why didn't they just put the fire out? Game over.
I completely forgot they even made a movie until I opened this thread. >.< I can barely remember it. I just remember thinking that there was no need for it to be made in the first place and wanting to get out of the theater asap.
