As of its opening day, LAST AIRBENDER ranks as one of 2010's Bottom Five Worst-Reviewed Movies on MetaCritic...  

Here's a MetaCritic LINK, and an R.T. LINK to see how many critics are reading last rites over M. Night's career with this film's failure...

Some choice quotes:

FYC - Worst Picture:

"It's bad, as in "Wild Wild West" will no longer be considered the nadir of July 4th weekend releases."


"It is so bad that not only could Uwe Boll make a better movie than Shyamalan has done here, he already has."

"The movie has been criticized for racially inappropriate casting, but that’s the least of its problems. The acting is laughable, the effects are phony, the editing is addled and the dialogue is disastrous."

"The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented."

"Where to start with this one? How about this: If any movie ever warranted a class-action lawsuit against the filmmakers, it’s The Last Airbender."

FYC - Worst Director:

"There's no other way to say this: M. Night Shyamalan has completely lost it."

"A new low point in Shyamalan's crumbling career."

"The Last Airbender could be The Last M. Night Shyamalan Movie. Yep, it's that bad."

FYC - Worst Supporting Actor - Dev Patel:

"That, or he has lost his touch in working with other humans. Not one single performance from any of the principle actors — even Dev Patel, who was wonderful in Slumdog Millionaire — can be described as anything but wooden or stale. It’s a boring, emotionless affair every time two characters meet for a conversation. Even worse — there are plenty of expositional conversations. It brings me to a point of looking at these actors with a sense of pity. Some of them might have a bit of talent, but they were given no opportunity to show it here."

"Based on Dev Patel's overacting here, one would never guess this Slumdog Millionaire star was a critically praised performer with awards and nominations. "

"Of course, part of the problem there is that the performance Ringer gives doesn't work, but it's hard to blame the actors, who seem to be doing precisely what they were told by Shyamalan. Patel, who was passable at best in Slumdog Millionaire, is by far the worst, numbly making his way through one repetitive monologue after another..."

Oh man, I'm relishing these reviews of Dev Patel or, as every reviewer in America is calling him, that guy from Slumdog.  He's been terrible since he was a mere TV actor (where he belonged), but he's finally getting his just desserts.  Worst Supporting Actor is right up his alley.

Here are some choice quotes:

"Patel, who was passable at best in Slumdog Millionaire, is by far the worst, numbly making his way through one repetitive monologue after another..."
- Todd Gilchrist, Cinematical

"Dev Patel of Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire sleepwalks through the part of Ozai's prodigal son, Prince Zuko..."
- Sean O’Connell, FilmCritic.com

"...the acting overall is stilted - Patel in particular evidently can't play angry in convincing fashion..."
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic



Jai ho, loser!!!

I love the irony that M. Night's first major success ("Sixth Sense") was inspired by "Are You Afraid Of The Dark"), a Nickelodeon TV series ... and now, his career will end with his latest bomb, an adaptation of a Nickelodeon TV series!
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.
