When Zuko takes Aang onto his ship, Iroh puts a rock, lit candle and water in front of him, to which all three pull towards him, showing he is in fact the Avatar. However, Aang walks by several rocks, water and fire and they never react to him, without bending. See more »

Pile of nonsense
30 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They went too fast and all the characters talk like they're reading off placards. The computer generated stuff was good though but i got less than what i expected. What a waste of time and money. I'd rather had stayed home and watched the original cartoon instead.

The original cartoon is ten times better to watch. Even if i consider this movie as a unit in it itself, its missing a lot of story where a new viewer wouldn't be able to connect the points. Although it has good computer generated animation and stuff but you still get less than you'd expect. There are bits where you expect it to be funny and it ain't, no fun.

Anybody who has watched the original cartoon will tell you how much of it they have skipped in the beginning of the movie. The story line is completely shot, you cant tell whats really going on.
