I went to see the Last Air Bender yesterday and loved it. I have to admit I watch the cartoon so I was really looking forward to this release. :-)
Anyway, my wife made a comment that she thought the last air bender blew away the Karate kid. I wanted to see whatever elses thoughts were. I am definitely in agreement with her on this one. And it floored me because she really was never into the Last Air Bender. At least with the Karate kid she grow up on that.
Ok I saw both. I can not see how the 2 can be compared, other than the fighting. Now I know nothing of the story of Air Bender & did not want to research it 1st. I simply went to see it as 1 of the stars is Dev Patal who I loved in Slumdog Millionaire. He is an ITF/Chang Hon BB student of Mr. Stuart Anslow.
As to the movie I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to the next chapter.
I have several categories of movie reviews:
Awesome (1 of the best)
Ok (It was a nice diversion)
Ouch (Couldn't stand it)
So I really did enjoy Air Bender, but thought Karate Kid remake was great, due to the facxt I saw it with a bunch of young students, several groups & loved it, as did they. Maybe the group effort enhanced it or maybe my enjoyment was enhanced as they loved it so much.
Other than some fight scenes & emphasis on goodness, the movies were totally different for me, but I would recommend both
