Critics Fly at Chance to Rip on ‘Airbender’

The Last Airbender Movie Review.jpg


This is our fav from Ain’t It Cool News:

I’m going to speak plainly in a language everyone can understand. M. Night Shyamalan‘s THE LAST AIRBENDER is a hate crime against film lovers. No one should ever have to endure what I was unexpectedly put through yesterday afternoon watching this murky 3-D shitstorm of a movie that appears to have been shot through unflushed toilet bowl water, which, upon reflection, seems 100 percent appropriate.

Although it’s been universally panned, one outlier was from Colin Covert at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Despite significant stretches of talky tedium, there is plenty here on which to hang a franchise. “The Last Airbender” is one of the most visually luscious and exhilarating entertainments I have seen this year, full of giddy fireworks and kinetic pleasure. I suspect writer/director M. Night Shayamalan has been watching the early “Star Wars” films and such intricately art-directed Chinese super-productions as “House of Flying Daggers.”

Very curious.
