Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war—torn world. Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live—action feature film “The Last Airbender” is the opening chapter in Aang’s struggle to survive.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
[T]he film works so hard to explain its plot developments that it scarcely has any time left over to dramatize them. Exposition has not merely vanquished mimesis, it has burned its homes to the ground and sown salt in its fields.Christopher Orr, The Atlantic, 07.02.2010
It seems as if a good film could be made out of The Last Airbender's tale. But this is not that film.Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, 04.03.2011
When nothing you believe or believe in is at stake, your plot-receptor mechanisms close down.Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, 08.11.2010
Airbender's final insult is the unmistakable stench of a sequel that's left to linger in its wake.Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 07.18.2014
