@airspeed As a stand alone movie, had someone not seem the series, it would have been very difficult to follow
That’s what I think a lot about the movie too. At some parts in the movie it sort of seemed like MNS was relying on the fact that viewers had watched the show to understand the movie. In particular, one thing annoyed the hell out of me was when Aang said to Zuko “We could have been friends.” after leaving him frozen at the North Pole. How did that make any sense in the context of just the movie? If you’d seen the show, you’d know that he meant if there hadn’t been war Aang thinks they could have been friends just like he was friends with Kuzon. That’s just one example, but there are others like that.
Perhaps that’s just MNS writing a horrible script, but it’s just another one of those things that annoyed me in the movie. That’s not to say that MNS couldn’t have made a good movie – TLA had a lot of potential – but there were just too many bad things versus good things about the movie IMO.
I do have the power. I have all the power in the world!
