The Worst Movie Ever Made Part 2

So I went to see The Last Airbender. Note this is not a professional review but if you actually like this film, you are either blind or mentally retarded. This does live up to its reputation as the worst ever, definitely the worst I've seen in a LONG time. The movie is terrible as a movie and just plain wrong as an adaptation. While the landscape visuals were somewhat pleasing, the rest was absolute piss (pardon my french).

The movie starts of okay but then goes downhill as soon as Mr. Slumdog Millionaire Dev Patel shows up. For one thing, how hard would it be to get Asian kids? I mean seriously, at least get the costumes and things right. What was supposed to be a ponytail turned into a semi-spiked-mohawk creation. And then since the Fire Nation is Indian, apparently the Water Nation must be white, the Earth nation must be Chinese and The Air Nation should be, well, Sri Lankan by the look of it. And then the Uncle is French. And the kids could not act worse because apparently people in that universe don't blink and stare at everything.

The story is twisted and disfigured to such an extent any fans of the original cartoon leave within half an hour. I'm having a hard time concentrating on the review because just thinking about this film is giving me a migraine.

The pacing of the movie was just so bad. There was no sense of the story developing and it just seemed like Mr. Shyamalan (spelled it right this time)glued a couple episodes together. It was quite literally a pain in the neck to watch (but that could be just me as I was laughing so hard at Dev Patel's face)

The absolute worst point of the film for me had to be the ending. In the anime, the Avataar becomes one with the Water spirit and unleashes the tidal wave from hell on those sorry Fire Nation freaks and drowns them to oblivion. In the movie, it seemed to build up to the grand finish and had me waiting in suspense only for the biggest Anti-climax of the decade. What happened? The water just fell backwards and the Fire army hightailed it back.

Overall, a solid half star out of 1000. I advise you not to watch it unless you wish to trigger a stroke. The dumbest movie in recent history leaving rivals Twilight and Dragonball Evolution far behind in its wake.

That Guy


  1. Can I just say, I have read parts of your blog and I feel your pain. I just started a week ago blogging, and no one cares about it, not even my friends. I can't really expect them to humor me every day, I guess. Keep up the good work, don't get down, and I agree with you 100% that The Last Airbender sucks ass.

  2. Hey thanks. Guess making a successful blog isn't as easy as I thought it would be. And I can't really force people to read it. But its actually looking up since I started writing again (after quitting for 6 months). around 200 hits in the last monht. Compared to the 15 hits a month I used to get, its some improvement

  3. You are a Bangladeshi. I feel your pain. I am an Indian. I will nuke your home. (Evil Laugh)
