This film shows that bending
exists in real life.
Specifically, airbending (Mui), firebending (Sing) and earthbending (several Team Shaolin players, esp. Third Brother when he takes a turn at goalkeeping). Just compare the styles in this film with those in the Avatar
- Said bendings were, after all, based on Chinese martial arts after all (if we ignore the movie adaptation, which is pretty much a hilarious Hollywood Fu.)
