This was the best movvie that I have seen this year. The only bad review that I agree with is that the movie is short -- but do not blame the director for that, blame the producers. Given the time constraints, I think that they did a very good job in developing the story and are setting up to go into more detail in future movies. There is a lot of material that needed to be put in to prepare for future movies (I hope that there are more..) and this is a distraction from the main story line. This movie goes into more details on the personal struggles of Aang that we do not get until book 3 of the series. Some things are different than the series -- that is good.
