The actor who plays Aang is very odd looking, probably wont see it ever until they show it on TV.

How do they not make Aang Chinese when he has a Chinese name?

Anyway, I've looked this up previously and if I remember right, this is going to be a trilogy. I'm guessing a movie for Water, Earth, and Fire.

Oh yeah, kinda forgot about this thread.



Looks fine to me. Don't see why everyone's complaining about the actors.

The only thing that annoys me with the trailers so far is that they seem to make Aang look too serious. Aang can be serious when he needs to be, but it really isn't in him to be like that all the time. He likes goofing off more than anything else.

I noticed that too, I hope itīs only the trailers fault and it is not the case in the movie...

Well, it just so happens that the trailer puts all the battles and stuff in, so it kinda explains Aang's seriousness.
But yeah, we'll just have to wait for more.

I'm watching you all. Always watching.

I was there, I watched it, and it was pretty good. Though, there are a couple issues with it.

-The names are pronounced as if they were Japanese names
-Zuko's scar isn't very pronounce

Other things I can point out include:
-several characters were cut out (King Bumi and the Kyoshi Warriors)
-If you haven't seen the TV series, you'd be a little confused
-If you are anal about details or dislike the TV series, you will DESPISE this movie

So yeah, if you are gonna see it, ignore any reviews you've seen or read and go in with an open mind.

So far everyone who I've talked to who loves the series and has seen this 100% hate it.  Honestly, so far you're the only person I know who likes it.

Funny how this movie fails in both ways.

- Fails as an actual movie for having possibly the worst acting of all time, events that are incomprehensibly linked to one another, transitions which you don't know how the hell they happened, and fiction which doesn't make any sense except for the fans of the show, who don't need to know the story in the first place.
- Fails as an adaptation for hardcore fans. Many hardcore fans tend to not give a crap if a movie's good or not, they look at the small details and compare them to the show to see how they stand. Sapphire Knight, for example, didn't make any complaint about the MOVIE itself, just how faithful it was to the show. For any moviegoer who isn't a fan looking for details, this is probably the biggest pile of [parasitic bomb] they've ever gone to.

The fact that they mention the spirit world, which is pretty much a throwaway plot point which could pretty much be replaced at anytime by some other magic bullshit, and disregard the entire war, which is the main point of the story itself, in the intro, shows how well the adaptation was made.

Amusingly, my brother hasn't seen the tv series and he found the plot to be really simple and is blabbergasped why others have a hard time getting it.  Oh and his enjoyment to Golden Sun helped (again, amusingly) understand it.
Lol.

I personally didn't mind the movie and liked it for mainly the scenery and costume work.  Like my brother, I found the story to be rather simple to follow, the problem w/ the movie to me is two main things: pacing is a bit too quick and lack of fighting (considering from the....3 episodes I saw from the series, i'm rather shocked at practically little to none fight scenes, despite the fact it's based on a series of martial arts and elemental control).  Pacing well...affected the whole move like a domino effect, acting is good (I noticed enthusiasm on mainly the main characters, but pacing killed it), scenery is good and adventure is good (but pacing killed it).  Pacing to me added an odd effect to the whole movie, making it worse.

For once, this movie would probably have been slightly saved to be at least above average by being longer.  Which then would help space out the story, rather than throwing down summarized chunks at you and let the audience get a better build up and alas, FIGHT SCENES, proper and faster ones.

That's about it, I hope I typed comprehensive enough ^^'

Imagine the series as an anime. Only it's a GOOD anime, with researched cultural details, martial arts which are actual realistic styles, and dialogue which is witty, funny, and serious at times, in a fantastic plot with quite alot of development.
