    seriously was this a movie about the series or just an opportunity to cast his whole family as the fire nation so they can tell their family back in india they made a new bollywood film?

    Any studio that hires him to direct a movie should be boycotted.

    seriously and SLUM DOG MILLIONAIRE PEASANT as Zuko (sp?) of the fire nation??

    Zuko in the movies was a muscly stud that was masturbatable, instead we have this slum dog peasant with the body of a 6 year old girl i vomited.

    A guy dragged me out to see Shyamalan's "The Happening," which was the most laughably bad movie I have ever seen. I decided I would never see another Shyamalan movie ever again.

    horrible casting.. Aang (Ooong in the movie, wtf??) seemed to be reading from a script the entire movie and his nostrils needed its own wardrobe.

    he's more annoying than dakota fanning and possessed no charm whatsover like that fat lil chick in lil miss sunshine did..

    lil miss sunshine should be cast as the next airbender sans penis.

    The entire movie was not only rushed.. It seemed as if it was shredded and puked up...

    WTF did he do to the movie? Both sokka and Aang's names were changed in the movie. There was no mention of the earth bending king from Omashu, where Aang gets to ride the "mail system"..

    The "blue spirit" scenes were not explained well enough. Not to mention the famous archers that were used to capture Aang.. The frozen toads that Sokka and Katara had to suck on.

    The fighting scenes with were moderately okay however when bending they over did it with the damn postures.. reminded me alot of power rangers..

    The movie as a whole was rushed.. Not only that but there was a lot of things that were changed and completely re-written!

    The begning scene for example.. Katara and Sokka were NOT hunting Tiger seals.. they were fricken fushing.. Katara tries to water bend a fish out of the water and splashes Sokka.. They get into a fight and katara loses it and starts going off on sokka while she's doing that she's losing control and water bending teh hell out of a glacier.. THEN they find Aang.

    And when they find Aang, he's the one that comes out.. not them going in.

    WTF.. If you're going to do a movie based on the damn series.. ATLEAST FOLLOW THE DAMN STORY.

    follow the damn story? why?

    there is such a thing as poetic license you know...

    xmen 3- phoenix is supposed to be cosmic entity inhabiting jean grey. do u remember what they did with it in the movie?

    fantastic 4 - galactus. that thing that they showed in the movie certainly wasn't the galacatus from comics. silver surfer blowing him up? yeah right!!!

    Well that's fine then.. But then don't expect people to be polite when doing a review for your stupidity when you're directing the movie. He fucked up.. He was an idiot by not following the story he must have been aware that he was going to get ripped to shreds by the critics.

    I hope to god he doesn't have anything to do with the next movies, if this infact didn't completely kill off any interest people had...

    Way to go shamalamadingdong! Grats on another flub!

    And btw, i'm with you on the Phoenix / jean grey thing icon_smile.gif Just so you know. I'm not disagreeing with you.. But when a director fucks a movie and the fans like Mnight did.. kinda pisses off the fan base IMO.

    okay i'd agree, but only if the new story adds a different dimension or thought of sardonic wit that makes you question the world, something you're apparently incapable of.

    instead we get tepid dialogue at best and a brutally opaque cast, that tries very hard to wow us with the fighting scenes, which actually fell flat considering what we can do now with CG.

    oh i agree. i was pissed with what they did with jean grey! very very pissed!

    perhaps the movie should have been done by the director who did the watchmen. that at least was true to the comic

    The terms "poetic" and "Shyamalan" have nothing to do with each other. At all.

    Yikes! I really wanted to see Avatar The Last Airbender.

    After reading the reviews on rottentomatoes.com and hearing all the negative feedback on RJ, I've decided to play it safe and watched Toy Story 3 instead. LOL

    Honestly? I wished we would have gone to toy story 3. Since i've not seen any but the first twilight movie i refused to get suckered in to the other two. And that was the only other movie to go see this weekend.

    You'll have more of an enjoyable time going to toy story 3 icon_smile.gif

    As a faithful watcher of the Avatar...this was a major fail.. i only went to see how they would make a movie from a story with massive detail and construction of every little character and they failed miserably..Everything was rushed. If you guys want to watch The Avatar from the beginning..heres the link to the site that has every episode..and you be the judge.

    I don't think there's a need for a petition. Shyamalan has about as much chance of doing the Airbender sequels (if he hasn't already destroyed the possibility of them even getting made) as Joel Schumacher has of ever doing another Batman movie.

    the sad reality is that I heard they were already preparing production of the 2nd movie prior to the 1st release, based on the series' popularity icon_sad.gif

    and he already cast the rest of his family as the fire nation based not on acting competence but bragging rights back home that they starred in another bollywood film
