When the mystical Avatar disappears for 100 years, the world is thrown out of balance. The aggressive Fire Nation uses the Avatar’s absence as an opportunity to attack the other nations of earth, water, and wind to expand its dominance. When the airbending Avatar reemerges as Aang, a young boy with only a fourth of his powers, he and his friends begin a revolution to push back the Fire Nation and restore balance to the world.

ClearPlay In Action!

ClearPlay can virtually sit this one out. There is no profanity or sexuality. The violence is bloodless martial arts-lite and people being pushed around by various elements. The only scenes I noticed that were chopped out were brief views of a skeleton. The Last Airbender would be appropriate for all ages except perhaps the very young.

Should I Catch Some Air Bending?…

The Last Airbender is a live adaptation of a beloved animated TV series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Unfortunately, the film will win no new fans to the franchise and those I know who are fans of the TV series were disgusted by the film. Directed and written by a struggling M. Night Shyamalan, the dialog and acting are at times howlingly bad. This should have been an animated feature directed by someone experienced with action and martial arts.

Rated PG for fantasy action violence.; 103 min; Directed By M. Night Shyamalan
