Based on the animated TV series, this live action film is directed by M. Night Shyamalan. It follows four nations tied by destiny — Air, Water, Earth, and Fire – and the Fire Nation has launched a brutal war against the others. A century has passed, and there’s no hope in sight to change the path of destruction, until Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers that he’s the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone) to restore balance to their war-torn world. Fans of the TV series will undoubtedly like this movie, although the action is geared towards kids 12 and older. It also has fantastic special effects.
