Adapted from an animated series, the latest movie from M. Night Shyamalan is about the adventures of a young monk named Aang, hailed from a long line of Avatars, capable of controlling the four key elements of Fire, Earth, Water and Air.
If you look at the still images of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender – let’s state his involvement and culpability right up front – they look pretty impressive.
One can sense the colour, movement and wondrous fantasy world contained within, and feel suitably impressed. That is, until one watches the motion picture that Shyamalan has delivered. The trailer, too, looked good, but the film is mediocre.
For the uninitiated, the story follows the adventures of a young monk named Aang, who is the anointed saviour of the world, the so-called Avatar capable of ‘bending’, or manipulating, the four key elements of Fire, Earth, Water and Air.
