Fire, Ice and a Perfect Lack of Dialog in These ‘Last Airbender’ Clips

I will admit to still being excited about The Last Airbender, M. Night Shyamalan’s foray into the world of adapting popular kids cartoons into mega-budget action movies. But from the beginning — or at least that first teaser trailer — it’s been about the action. Assuming Shyamalan’s dialog is anywhere near as bad as it was in The Happening, the less talking, the better. And that’s exactly what we get in these two new clips.

The first clip, “Fire Fight,” features Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel at his angriest as he hurls fire toward Katara, played by Nicole Peltz. The second, “Fire and Ice,” features a very acrobatic Noah Ringer (as Aang) fighting off several dozen bad guys. You have to love this second clip. It’s pretty wild. Find both clips and the film’s official synopsis below.

Synopsis: Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara, a Waterbender, and her brother Sokka to restore balance to their war-torn world.
