Awww I LIKE IT! I heard about how other people thinks it sucks and all that. But, I actually love it. Well, anything magical even though it is predictable... is amusing for me. (Just came back from Aletheia - a 3 week workshop and I can clearly connect the dots of what we discussed and the things that came up in the movie). Anyway, for everybody's sake I haven't seen the original cartoon series, so I can't really say anything bad about it. :)
Although the film did feel like it was rushed and character development was poor... but the action scenes were equally riveting. :) Great musical score as well!! :)
Quotes I Like:
Iroh: There are reasons each of us are born. we have to find those reasons.
Gran: He will begin to change hearts, and it is in the heart that all wars are won.
