The Last Airbender Synopsis


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 (Nicole 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.

M. Night Shyamalan Explains Why We Didn't Get His Last Airbender Movie M. Night Shyamalan Explains Why We Didn't Get His Last Airbender Movie
The idea that M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender was big-budget box-office disaster is well established in the ignominious annals of cinematic stinkers.

Why The Last Airbender Was Terrible And It Maybe Wasn't M. Night's Fault Why The Last Airbender Was Terrible And It Maybe Wasn't M. Night's Fault
If M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender is famous for anything, it’s for being an absolutely disaster. Fans of the animated series were over the moon with anticipation for the film, but now it stands as one of the most reviled big budget blockbusters of the modern era. Usually you can trace a disaster of this proportion to some bad mojo going on behind the scenes, and if a recently unearthed message board post is to be believed, then The Last Airbender is no exception to that.

Where M. Night Shyamalan Went Wrong: The Last Airbender Where M. Night Shyamalan Went Wrong: The Last Airbender
This movie adaptation already had a fascinating world, fleshed out with a rich mythos, peopled with complex and funny characters, and prime for epic battles utilizing martial arts and elemental superpowers to pull from. All Shyamalan had to do was distill the show's sensational first-season down to a 90-120 minute movie. He had all you could wish for in source material, and yet he failed on every single level.
