Movie: The Last Airbender

We watched this on DVD a few days ago. The NYT review, which is pretty funny, offers this useful summary:

Mr. Shyamalan’s attempt to conjure a realm of myth and adventure out of special effects and long expository speeches might serve as a textbook chapter on How to Do It Wrong.

Oh, and that bit in the first line of the NYT review about the last scene gesturing toward a sequel is far too understated. The scene has no point other than to point toward a sequel, at the cost of diminishing the impact of the movie's conclusion.

Not recommended.
