He hasn't mastered the craft yet, but M. Night Shyamalan may be on to something with this action-movie thing. Read full review
Completely harmless and inoffensive, and at the very least, Shyamalan appears to be having a little fun here. Read full review
Unfortunately, this all proceeds at a supersonic tempo, with Shyamalan's directorial finger stuck on the fast-forward button. Significant plot points whiz by in this movie equivalent of speed-dating. Read full review
The story is a much more serious problem, a run-on, overstuffed narrative that feels like a very long prologue for a climax that never comes. Read full review
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. Read full review
Even during the climax, the film still is struggling to introduce the world of the film and its strange rules. Read full review
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. Read full review
Unfortunately, its positive attributes are thrown out of balance by its abundant negatives - including chintzy effects, lumbering storytelling and an overstylized, earnest incompetence that evokes "Speed Racer." Read full review
The filmmaker has delivered yet another iteration of what has become a classic M. Night Shyamalan film, only much bigger than before, and, as a consequence, mind-bendingly turgid. Read full review
A dull, boring, poorly acted, limply written and thoroughly unappealing fantasy, featuring bland characters locked in a struggle of no interest. Read full review
