Water, Earth, Fire, and Air, Four nations, One destiny. The Fire nation is planning to take over the known world. Only the Avatar, who can master all the four elements, can stop the Fire nation. However the Avatar has disappeared for over a 100 years!!! Without the Avatar to deter the Fire nation, it is able to conquer most of the world. Luckily a southern water tribe brother and sister discover a young boy and a flying bison trapped beneath the ice. As it turns out, Aang is actually the Avatar who froze under the ice long ago. Once they meet, their destinies are intertwined together forever. They all fly to the northern water tribe to find Aang a water bending teacher, so that he may learn all the elements. However, a banished Fire nation prince(Prince Zuko) is tracking the avatars trail accompanied by his uncle. Prince Zuko feels that he must capture the Avatar before the fire nation commander does. With the world paralyzed by fear of the dreaded Fire nation, no one is prepared to stand up and fight until the Avatar finally returns.
One of the many incredible aspects of this movie that I noticed was the background music, which really captured the mood in several scenes. Most action scenes were made more exciting with the music, which was always right on cue, but it never overpowered the intensity of the movie.Another feature of the movie that I very fond of was the special effects. Since several of the characters had to control the elements, many effects had to be added. Also the characters had to ride on several animals that do not exist in our world.
One of the disappointments was the storyline . It was confusing, if you are not familiar with television series. In the beginning not much was explained so the actors themselves seemed baffling. Nevertheless, as the movie progressed the acting improved greatly. Therefore, the end was my favorite part of the movie.
Overall, the movie sent chills down my spine and has me desperately waiting for the sequel. I would recommend this movie to children seven and older (PG) and for those who have an aspiring imagination. As for me I may see it again. In conclusion, I rate this movie a "B+."
