He hasn't mastered the craft yet, but M. Night Shyamalan may be on to something with this action-movie thing.

The movie is "Star Wars" with martial arts, plus a touch of "The Last Emperor." Technically, it's not badly done; I enjoyed the physical clash of elements, the water balls rising like sculpture in the air.

A toxic potion that will put children to sleep and kill his (M. Night Shyamalan) career.

Arizona Republic
While the special effects are impressive enough, M. Night Shyamalan's film doesn't make a lick of sense.

Even during the climax, the film still is struggling to introduce the world of the film and its strange rules.

Boston Globe
The Last Airbender' is dreadful, an incomprehensible fantasy-action epic that makes the 2007 film "The Golden Compass,'' a similarly botched adaptation of a beloved property from another medium, look like a four-star classic.

Orlando Sentinel
This colossal folly, the fiasco of the summer of 2010 - gives us all a ringside seat at the sight of Mr. "I See Dead People's" career gurgling down the drain.

This is all enormously disappointing, of course, since the best we could hope for from a live-action "Avatar" adaptation is the mind-blowing equivalent of our first encounters with wire-fu, rather than this cartoony nonsense.

The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented.

The Last Airbender isn't that much different from the rest of this summer's generally dire multiplex fare-from "The A-Team" to "Jonah Hex"... But it is remarkable in one respect: It's the worst of them.
