Re: “The Last Airbender

as a huge fan of the show, i was saddened by the lack of screen time Appa and Momo had, the lack of several characters(Jet,Roku,the Kiyoshi Warriors[they could have at least put Suki in]), the mispronunctuation of names(Aang, Sokka, Iroh, avatar), and the lack of the comedy and emotion that the tv series brought. the only things that triggered my emotions were Aang finding the dead airbenders and Zuko talking about his sister. the effects were decent(the 3D was very unnecessary) but i felt like a lot of the fight scenes lacked bending and were just people striking fancy poses. i understand that it is difficult to squeeze 20 half-hour episodes into a movie, but i feel as if a lot of the episodes were skimmed over. i felt like there wasn't time to get to know the characters. on the bright side, the scenes i feel were well-done were the scenes from the episodes "The Blue Spirit" and "The Siege of the North". i thought they did Sokka and Yue's relationship well, and they did well enough on the scenes of Aang crossing over to the spirit world. i really do want to see two sequels, but if they do come out with sequels GET A DIFFERENT AND BETTER DIRECTOR PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
