Manny Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender (based on the cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender, which I’ve heard is good) opens this Thursday, and a couple of the fight scenes have leaked online. All I can say is, wow. I always thought the Crouching Tiger-style wire fighting (as opposed to more realistic Jackie Chan/Tony Jaa fight choreography) was lame. This is a step further than that, where they start with the look of wire fighting, then remove all the actual actors and stuntpeople so that it’s like a CGI puppet show. Oh, and instead of them actually punching or kicking each other, they only fight with CGI water and fire effects that the characters command through ridiculously elaborate hand gestures like an interpretive dance. If you ask me, this looks retarded. But then, I’m the last of an ancient line of c*ck benders. (*dismissively wanks*)
