Top critics gave new ‘Last Airbender’ movie pretty negative reviews. Paramount Pictures released their new action/adventure flick “The Last Airbender” into theaters yesterday,and most of the top movie critics weren’t impressed with it at all. They mostly gave it Ds,and one of them even gave it an F rating. However, there was one who thought it was pretty good with a B-. It stars: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, Jessica Jade Andres, Aasif Mandvi, Shaun Toub, Cliff Curtis, and Keong Sim.
Ty Burr from the Boston Globe gave it a bad D rating. He said, it was “dreadful.” Roger Ebert over at the Chicago Sun-Times gave it a D-. He said, it was “an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented.”
Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune gave it a D+. He stated, “the latest 3-D offering in theaters, yet barely functional in 2 or even 1.” Owen Gleiberman at Entertainment Weekly gave it a C. He said, “As for the 3-D, I’m tempted to leave responsible critical language behind and say quite simply that it sucks, except that the 3-D visuals in this movie would have to exist before they could be called terrible.”
Sean O’Connell at Filmcritic.com gave it a D+. He said, “the Signs and Sixth Sense director turns Nickelodeon’s beloved animated series into The Last Snore-bender.” Kirk Honeycutt at the Hollywood Reporter gave it a C-. He stated, “Even during the climax, the film still is struggling to introduce the world of the film and its strange rules.”
Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times gave it a C rating. He said, “By specifically critical and broadly adult standards, this film is undoubtedly a disappointment, but it is disappointing in a way that its intended audience may not notice.”
A.O. Scott from the New York Times gave it a real bad F rating. He said, it “can serve as a reminder of how difficult it can be to inaugurate a fantasy-action franchise.” James Berardinelli at Reelviews gave it a D. He said, “This is bad filmmaking and bad storytelling. It also sounds what should be the death knell to M. Night Shyamalan’s career.”
Scott Bowles over at USA Today gave it a pretty good B- rating. He said, “for a kids’ movie, Airbender delivers on multiple levels.” “The Last Airbender” movie is in theaters now. Get your “Last Airbender” movie tickets at Fandango by Clicking Here.
