|Why are people writing off Mr Night....by my reckoning, he has made four very good films, and two average films (that still have oustanding moments in them). evrey great director has done below par work at somepoint.
I can't wait to see what he's done with this!!!!. More|

|This could go either way... but expectations are low|
|I loved Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. They were really well made films. The Village was good too... though not as much as the previous 2 films. With Signs, Night starts showing cracks in his output... and then the cracks expanded to the wreck level of his last 2 films. This new film needs to really have a great trailer and get good reviews for me to even think of going close to it. Is this even the right material for the director? We'll see what he makes of it... a part of me still wishes for him More|

| RE: Moderate potential|
| yeah whilst watching it I thought that the fire nation represented the japaneese, earth: china, water: inuits (sp) and air were some sort of buddhas hense the bald heads and meditation.
which is why all the casting is all wrong! regardless of acting ability! More|

I liked the original series, and everything about this film just screams STAY AWAY, but I liked Patel's performance in Slumdog Millionare and want to see something else with him in because, despite the ridiculousness of casting work done here and how bad the film almost definately will be, I think Patel will give a good performance.
So.................. wait for DVD? More|

|I loved the animated serious and I gotta say that I'm sold on those two pics! As a fan, I couldn't as for better casting! Really exited about this movie now! But like others have mentioned hope Shyamalan doesn't balls such a great story up!

|Well it looks like the show|
|It's a great show for kids and thier parents. My only worry is going to be Night's take on it. If it's not dull and self indulgent it should be just fine. I love signs and unbreakable, but he can be such a risk to a project like this considering his latest track record...fingers crossed he makes something very speical from the source's content (which is vast).

|To all those who have not watched any of the Avatar episodes, I would say that you are not missing anything terribly great. It takes alot of themes and elements of success franchises and blends it into something children can watch and be entertained with. The first one I saw was the the two hour series finale, Sohzin's Comet, and honestly, it is was a very enjoyable two hours. The fighting scenes are spectacular, very unlike the rest of the series. If the movie can somehow transfer that &quo More|

| I think the Fire Nation is definitely Japan-esque, with the Earth Kingdom as China.
The Air Nomads are kind of like Tibetan Lamas.

Tis true what you say i just always thought that the Fire Tribe had a more oriental look about them
ach tribe is meant to be like a different culture, Water, Eskimo and stuff so Fire Nation may be modelled on a japanese style, architecture an example

| RE: T'will follow Dragonball and Speed Racer...|
| Surely Dragonball and Speed Racer showed that films based on Nickolodeon/Anime cartoons don't translate to good box office appeal?
I've never seen the show and if it's wasn't for Night's name attached (and Dev Patel's to a certain extent), I'd have no interest whatsoever... and I have very little as it is. More|

|I think Patel is actually well cast in this cos he has be doing kick-boxing for a couple of years now so I think he'll have the moves!
Evidence; Skins, kicking the asses of 2 guys in a pub. More|

| Did shamaladingdong actually watch the series and did he watch any bit with Zuko in?!?!
