So I went and saw it tonight with my mom and dad who have never seen the anime before. All of us really injoyed it. It may have left out a lot of stuff from the cartoon but that is to be expected. They did get in almost all of the major events that took place in the first book. And most of what was in it was so close to the origional that it was kind of freaky. Most of the time when a movie is made from books or cartoons or something they totally mess up the whole story line. In this case I was totally surprised that it followed so well.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the next two. The graphics where awesome and the fighting was awesome also. It did suck that they missed a lot of the humor but everyone did laugh at quite a few spots in the movie. And you never know...they may delve more into it in the next two. This one was needed to set the story line more then anything for those who have never heard of it before.

If you are having reservations about going I would suggest to go. Just because someone else didn't like it doesn't mean you won't. We all injoy different things from our movies.

No, the series is an American show made specifically for Nickelodeon, and based on certain Oriental lifestyles and martial arts techniques.

The Last Airbender's creators named their characters, and M. Night should have gone with their pronunciations regardless of how he thought they should sound.

Aang is pronounced with a long A, not with an O. Iroh is pronounced with a long I, not an E.

Regardless of how real Japanese names are sounded, the show's American creators used specific pronunciations. To do otherwise just makes this movie even more of a blasphemy.

Well, I guess I might have to wait until it comes out on DVD. Neither of the theaters within driving distance from me have had it on yet }:(.
