This is the Pure Movies review of The Last Airbender (directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, Cliff Curtis Nicola Peltz Noah Ringer Jessica Andres, Seychelle Gabriel and Shaun Toub). Written by Pure Movies writer Suki Ferguson. There are films that are considered, by cult consensus, to be ‘so bad they’re good.’ Sadly, the same cannot be said of The Last Airbender. It is mind-bogglingly bad, and boring with it. Our hero is a young Bender (stop giggling back there!) named Aang who specializes in ‘bending’ air. Apparently he is the last one, and he must prove to the element-themed world he lives in that he is an Avatar, a being equipped to save the peaceful Water Nation from the evil Fire Nation.

Can Nickelodeon cartoon adaptation, The Last Airbender, mark a return to form for director M Night Shyamalan? Ryan went along to find out…
It's difficult not to view a film without prejudging it at the best of times, and The Last Airbender is a more difficult movie to watch without prejudice than most. This is largely thanks to the unusually vocal critical derision Airbender was met with on its stateside release, not least by veteran film writer Roger Ebert, who uncharitably referred to director M. Night Shyamalan as "an idiot" on his Twitter feed.
And considering director M Night Shyamalan's previous two movies, the tepid Lady In The Water and the downright risible The Happening, were similarly panned when they appeared, it's hard not to sit in a screening of The Last Airbender without a faint sense of dread.
Even so, the quality of Shyamalan's earlier work shouldn't be forgotten. »
If you're familiar with the Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender and its upcoming 3D film adaptation, you'll know it involves a world in which people can bend the elements to their will.
A new promotional video has been sent to us today offering advanced courses at the Element Academy where you too can learn the skill of airbending so you can fend off bullies and thugs. Check it out below.
M Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender (note that the Avatar part of the cartoon title has been omitted to avoid confusion with James Cameron's sci-fi epic) is released in the UK on August 13 by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies.
Synopsis: Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century »

Mia Wasikowska, Lisa Cholodenko, Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right Inception Tops Weekend Box Office; The Sorcerer’S Apprentice in Third Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, Kevin James, and Rob Schneider‘s Grown Ups pulled in $10m at no. 6. in the Us/Canada box-office chart according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Total to date: $129.25m. It’s a good thing for distributor Sony that the widely panned $80m comedy is doing so well domestically, as Adam Sandler is hardly what one would call an international star. Overseas, Grown Ups brought in only $960k in eight territories this weekend. International total to date: $9.5m. At no. 7, M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender, starring Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Jackson Rathbone, Nicola Peltz, and Shaun Toub, collected $7.45m. Total to date: $114.8m. Cost: $150m.

Its inclusion among the top twelve is quite remarkable. »

Dev Patel, Shaun Toub in M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender Once again, the studios’ weekend box-office estimates were quite a bit off. For starters, Universal overestimated Despicable Me‘s grosses by about $4m. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, and featuring the voices of Steve Carell, Julie Andrews, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, and others, the animated feature (in 3D in about half of its 3,476 theaters) took in $56.3m — not the studio-estimated $60.1m — according to weekend actuals found at Box Office Mojo. At no. 2, David Slade‘s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, collected $31.7m instead of Summit’s estimated $33.4m. In both cases, figures were off because Sunday drop-off rates were higher than estimated. Even so, Despicable Me had a remarkable opening, while Eclipse (-51.1% from the previous weekend) is holding on strongly and should be crossing the $250m »

It is often said that while the western world might run out of mythology, the Indians and the Chinese with their millions of gods and martial arts, never would. And that after Hollywood has worn out European mythology, they would turn east.
It is no surprise that a spate of Hollywood films based on the various mythologies of Asia have been made in the last few years with ‘The. »
Slumdog Millionaire‘s Dev Patel, Prince Zuko, The Last Airbender Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner Photo: Eclipse to Cross $200m Mark Later in the Week: Box Office M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender, starring Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, and Shaun Toub, narrowed the gap between Monday’s no. 1 and no. 2 movie at the North American box office. Shyamalan’s actioner grossed $12.65m (vs. $13.54m for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), according to Box Office Mojo. While Eclipse, starring the popular combo Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart-Taylor Lautner, has been performing a little below expectations, The Last Airbender — despite miserable reviews and numerous negative comments on the (purported) almighty box-office barometer named Twitter — has been performing way above expectations. Shyamalan’s actioner went up an estimated 34.7% on Monday (vs. Eclipse‘s 18.4% decrease). One more drastic Eclipse attendance drop and The Last Airbender could — if it maintains »

Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, The Last Airbender Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart’s Eclipse Behind Tobey Maguire’s Spider-man 2: Box Office At a distant no. 2, M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender collected an estimated $40.65m at 3,169 locations ($12,827 per-theater average) in the Us/Canada, according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. Reviews for The Last Airbender have been overwhelmingly negative, word-of-mouth has been at best unenthusiastic (a "C" as per CinemaScore), and there have been numerous complaints about Paramount/Shyamalan’s decision to use a white kid in an East Asian role. Yet, the Paramount release starring Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone and Shaun Toub has scored a not inconsiderable $57m after only four days. It’ll probably cross the $100m mark within the next ten days or so. How far it’ll go above that remains to be seen. Although The Last Airbender »

The Last Airbender Written and Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan Starring: Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Cliff Curtis, Shaun Toub, Seychelle Gabriel M. Night Shyamalan's career has essentially been in freefall since 2004, after The Village started the slow process of sabotaging the goodwill that he had built up with moviegoers over the first half of the last decade. There aren't many filmmakers who could survive three critical flops in a row, but he is still standing, and at least he has had the sense to finally switch gears and try something new. Instead of writing another original supernatural thriller with a twist ending, he opted to work with someone else's material, signing on to turn the popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender into a live action special effects extravaganza (no relation to James Cameron's Avatar). Unfortunately, M. Night being M. Night, he refused to »
'Last Airbender' movie delivered a great story with awesome scenes. Paramount Pictures new "Last Airbender" flick hit the theaters today. I just got through watching it,and I must say I totally disagree with the top movie critics this week. Most of them thought it was horrible,but this movie was freakin awesome. It delivered a lot of action,cool special effects with a great storyline. I was totally captivated by every element of this movie. It stars: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, Jessica Jade Andres, Aasif Mandvi, Shaun Toub, Cliff Curtis, and Keong Sim. "The Last Airbender" revolved around character Aang (Noah Rider) who is one of the last airbenders left,and the so-called avatar that can manipulate all elements fire,water,air,and earth. However,Aang hasn't yet developed any ability but airbending after forsaking his avatar duty. »
Noah Ringer in M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender Estimates for M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender has the much-panned 2D-to-3D actioner grossing $50m. Some had been predicting that amount by Sunday; others by Monday, a holiday for many in the Us. The Last Airbender has taken in more than $32m in its first two days out. It’ll likely collect about $60-$65m by Monday evening. For comparison’s sake, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse scored $68.5m on its first day out. The Last Airbender stars Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, and Shaun Toub. Lee Unkrich‘s Toy Story 3, currently with $269.2m (Friday figures as per Box Office Mojo), will likely reach the $300m mark by Monday. The next $100m will be an uphill battle, however. The probable 2011 Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature was down 42% compared to a week ago. Two more »

Noah Ringer as Aang, The Last Airbender The Twilight Saga: Eclipse to Cross $100m Mark Today: Box Office Considering the sort of reception it got from Twitter users (forget the critics…) M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender actually didn’t do badly at all on Thursday, opening with an estimated $16.35m at 3,169 locations. Perhaps people were curious to find out how bad it was? Or perhaps it’s all a result of allotting $130m to (strategically) market a movie that cost $150m to produce? The fantasy/sci-fi/adventure flick starring Noah Ringer, Slumdog Millionaire‘s Dev Patel, Nicola Peltz, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse‘s Jackson Rathbone, and Shaun Toub averaged $5,159 per theater — only a little less than Eclipse‘s $5,483 average at 4,416 sites. The Last Airbender, however, may not be able to keep the momentum going throughout the extended Fourth of July weekend in the United States — and in the weekends ahead. »

Paramount released their new "Last Airbender" flick into theaters yesterday,and they also recently released this incredible new clip (below) that features Aang fighting off a ton of men with fire and ice,but mostly ice.

Top critics gave new 'Last Airbender' movie pretty negative reviews. Paramount Pictures released their new action/adventure flick "The Last Airbender" into theaters yesterday,and most of the top movie critics weren't impressed with it at all. They mostly gave it Ds,and one of them even gave it an F rating. However, there was one who thought it was pretty good with a B-. It stars: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, Jessica Jade Andres, Aasif Mandvi, Shaun Toub, Cliff Curtis, and Keong Sim. Ty Burr from the Boston Globe gave it a bad D rating. He said, it was "dreadful." Roger Ebert over at the Chicago Sun-Times gave it a D-. He said, it was "an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented." »
Other than The Last Airbender, it’s hard to think of another movie that conveys so much urgency in every line of dialogue and yet goes absolutely nowhere. M. Night Shyamalan, fighting to reclaim his commercial viability, wrote, produced and directed this live-action adaptation of the hit Nickelodeon animated series, and while he successfully condensed an entire season into one feature-length film, he did so by packing it with only exposition, leaving no room for characters, story, or anything else. A soul-crushing disaster made worse by unnecessary, counterproductive 3-D, The Last Airbender fails to immediately qualify as the worst film of the summer only by virtue of the year’s abundance of other candidates…read more [Cinematical]
The good news for those eagerly anticipating this live-action, big budget adaptation of the Nickelodeon anime series is that the 3D isn’t horrible. The bad news? Just about everything else is. Fans of »
