Some movies aren’t worth beating a dead horse this much. The Last Airbender certainly is. M. Night Shyamalan’s film, a blight against good storytelling, has been ill-received by critics. And that usually wouldn’t mean the world, especially in the case of most fan-driven event films (like Twilight). That is, until the fans see the movie and begin to received it poorly themselves. Such is the case in the tale of Aang (which is mispronounced in the film).
See hilarious fan reactions from outside a Los Angeles theater after the jump.
Chris Underwood of Reelz Channel went out to a Los Angeles theater to talk to some of the rabid Airbender fans who paid their money to see some of the first public screenings. As it turns out, the reactions were less than friendly to the embattled director and his less than stellar movie. It’s nice to see a little fan backlash every now and again, especially when a movie essentially defecates all over its source material with copious, needless exposition. Before the film hit theaters, I wrote in my Last Airbender review that I was offended on behalf of the fans. Now they have the opportunity to be offended on their own.
