The Last Airbender In 3D (PG)

It comes as an anticlimax that M Night Shyamalan's much reviled fantasy epic isn't quite as bad as the more bilious US reviewers had suggested.

The dialogue is tin-eared in the extreme, the 3D is used in a strictly tokenistic fashion and the absolute lack of a sense of irony or humour makes the more solemn scenes all the more laughable. However, as escapist, effects-driven matinee fare for unfussy children during the holidays, this adaptation of The Last Airbender animation series passes muster.
