Let's all admit this: The Last Airbender was cruddy movie to many (and I mean, many). However, M. Night Shyamalan, the movie's director, is not entirely to blame for this failure, according to Kyatto from a forum called AvatarSpirit.net. Here's what the user said: What I'm getting out of this is that Night really was a huge fan of the show, and Bryke did give him the "okay" signal for the movie after they read his original screenplay. However, with producers watering down the development, not caring for the original show, and providing cheap material instead of huge blockbuster sets, The Last Airbender ends up becoming one of the worst films of all time and spiritually kills Night's career. He's not the greatest director ever (The Happening, Lady in the Water, The Village, After Earth are several reasons why), but after reading this I kinda feel bad for him. What are your thoughts on this?
