"This is strictly for the preteens who like their heroes young, their morals simple and their villains clear."
— Scott Bowles, USA Today
" All the elements are there for a hit franchise starter... so why does The Last Airbender feel like the last Airbender movie auds will ever see?"
— Peter Debruge, Variety
"This one looks like The Karate Kid got lost in a Nickelodeon cartoon."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"...merely a work-for-hire effort, which might have benefited the filmmaker by compelling him to drop his more pompous habits if, of course, he was actually adept at handling this sort of big-budget spectacle. He isn't."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
