M. Night Shyamalan's newest movie, The Last Airbender, was supposed to be his comeback supermovie. On paper, it was a brilliant concept: Take a horror movie 'specialist'(he's gotten a little crappy with this horror flicks), do a 180, give him a big budget, an action/suspense film with a popular fan base and a cult following. I admit, i myself stood up and clapped for Shyamalan when I heard the news. I though: you can't lose.
Why do we do this to ourselves? Never say never. Never hold out hope. Especially when you're dealing with Shyamalan.
Uwe Boll previously held the award for "Worst Director Ever", but that wasn't fair at all. Today, we have a clear victor.
1. s***tiest casting since... Well, i can't remember since i deleted the last trash movie from memory.
2. Terrible acting. I mean, give Luke Skywalkers father a round of applause, because the force has to be strong for this slackjawed hippie to keep getting big roles. Everybody seemed a little lost, like they didn't know how to pronounce things. made me think that the director was making them nervous or throwing them off. I'll bet anyone $12 bucks he was wearing a chicken outfit on set.
3. Don't get me started on the storyline. I mean... my god... LORD HELP US! Only a truly bad movie makes you realize, while watching it, how many flaws it has and how you could fix them yourself and what you would do if you were in charge of this project. sheeesh.
4. what a way to jumble the storyline trying to create a rivoting plot. you could tell this was made for little kids and that the ..ahem... director, didn't know what he wanted to do next. he had no vision. no clear beginning or end, which showed in the scattered lead up to a lackluster climax, laden with innappropriate musical scores.
Just makes me beg the question... M. Night... Do you hate America? To do this to us?
Lead us to believe you are a good storyteller with movies like the 6th Sense. Then throw bricks at our face with things like "The Happening"
The only good thing to come out of the movie was Seychelle Gabriel. What a beauty... Until you google image search her and she's not even a real blonde. or blue eyed. SMH! You'd take even that much away from us Sham-alan... You bastard...
Thank you Rantfoo for letting me vent.
