Attempting To Clear The Air

Eric Eisenberg calls attention to a message board post from someone claiming to have been involved with the production of The Last Airbender who says that director M. Night Shyamalan doesn’t deserve the blame for the film’s super subpar reputation:

“Too bad the producers felt the movie didn’t have time for intentional humor and cut all that out of the script. Noah [Ringer] was the only one who openly auditioned and was chosen based on talent. He just needed extra help acing because with a lot of it being green screened he was talking to air a lot of the time.”

But commentators aren’t buying it:

“Neither the poor casting nor the budget constraints for locations excuse the terrible dialog and awful pacing . . . And if he really did “give up and collect his paycheck,” then that’s the worst offense of all.”
