Top 10 Worst Things About the Movie The Last Airbender

We've all had those movie experiences that leave us feeling... less than satisfied, right? Those times when the credits roll and you're left sitting there, popcorn half-eaten, feeling like you've been on a cinematic roller coaster that took a wrong turn somewhere. Well, if you're here, chances are you've had that experience with a certain film: "The Last Airbender."

Now, don't get us wrong. We're all about appreciating the art of filmmaking, the good, the bad, and the ugly. But there's no denying that sometimes, a film comes along that just misses the mark in more ways than one. That seems to be the consensus when it comes to "The Last Airbender." But what exactly makes this film a top contender for your "Worst Movies" list? That's what we're here to find out.

You're about to dive into a rundown of the most cringe-worthy, face-palm-inducing elements of "The Last Airbender," according to viewers just like you. Are you miffed at M. Night Shyamalan's direction? Are you fuming about the flagrant character deviations from the beloved animated series? Maybe it was the name changes that threw you off, or perhaps it was the heavy-handed narration that had you rolling your eyes. And let's not even get started on the acting...
The Top Ten
1 It Was Directed by M. Night Shyamalan

Okay this list just confirms my opinions that this movie is the worst movie ever created. I'd rather watch the Percy Jackson movies ten times straight (those were okay when I first saw them, I hadn't read the books yet, and when reading the books the movies sound terrible) than see a minute of this movie ever again.

Why the did they allow M. Night Shyamalan to direct the movie version of Avatar the last airbender? Everything he did in this movie sucked.

I agree out of all the directors you just had to go with him. If you think this is bad go see After Earth. I apologize if you die in the process

2 Not Staying True to the Characters

I mean, I LOVE avatar because of the humor and drama, this was just drama, and made me slightly sleepy. No humor, whatsoever. Not even a funny honor speech from zuko. They messed up the personalities, big time, and they don't LOOK alike.

3 Name Changes
4 Too Much Narration

The whole Narration thing really dragged the whole movie, if all they do is narrate the whole movie than your not a movie your a book.

The whole narration felt unnecessary and pointless I don't want to see a movie where its completely narrated.

5 Bad Actors
6 Not Staying True to the Story

In the part with Haru they are standing on EARTH so they could have escaped the whole time

7 The Bending Looks Like Dance Routines

I know this isn't a big thing, but it looked like ballet. I'm sorry. I had a lot of problems with the bending in this movie. First of all, the dance routines. They did this whole, extravagant thing to move one tiny rock between like five earth benders. Remember that scene? And Katara's bending lost so much water while still looking the same. That was weird. Plus there was lots and LOTS of air karate, where they were waving their arms but nothing was happening with the element.

8 Missing Characters

Where is Suki, Jet, and the past avatars?

9 The Way They Cast the Actors

I heard they casted Noah Ringer because they saw Him doing martial arts and immediately Casted him. Really?

10 It Was a Box Office Success

This film grossed over $300 million worldwide when everything about it screams box office bomb!

The Contenders
11 No Emotion
12 Characters Say Random Stuff

I remember when they were in the oasis Aang said something about getting air bending tattoos WHY?

13 Did Not Have the Kyoshi Warriors
14 No Consistency in the Story Structure
15 Awful Acting
16 The Entire Earth Bender Scene
17 The Story Never Takes Its Time

The movie rushes through everything that we never have enough time to take in whats going on.

18 A Heap of Earth Benders Doing a Heap of Bending Moves to Move... a Pebble? Anticlimactic.
19 The Ethnic Miscasting
20 Aang's Avatar State
21 Katara's Love and Motherly Wisdom

Katara in the series is very motherly and loving, she is can be very sassy to Sokka which makes her having funny lines but in the movie she acts so annoying.

22 Every Character Looks Ugly
23 Too Much Explaining
24 Too Much Filler
