O que se diz lá fora sobre THE LAST AIRBENDER, de M. Night Shyamalan:
«THE LAST AIRBENDER is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«The problem - the catastrophe - of THE LAST AIRBENDER is not in the conception but the execution. The long-winded explanations and clumsy performances are made worse by graceless effects and a last-minute 3-D conversion that wrecks whatever visual grace or beauty might have been there.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«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.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«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.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«Even during the climax, the film still is struggling to introduce the world of the film and its strange rules.»
Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter.
