The Last Airbender is a pretty good movie, it did fairly at adapting TEN HOURS into a roughly two-hour movie. Although, when compressing, somethings needed to be cut. Like 'The Storm', a favorite episode of mine, but I can let it slide as it had little to do with the plot.
The effects for the movie are good, though the 3D effects were minamal. Hey, would you rather have a 3D major gimmick movie or just a few 3D effects? But the elements did look real.
The acting was good, they had the feel from the series, but made the part thier own.
Overall it was a good movie, however it doesn't comepare to the series. But I hope to see the next two, as long as we support this movie, by seeing it in the theater, telling M Night he has a good idea and reviewing it, telling what could be improved.
