In the scene with Sokka and Katara, just before Sokka is breaking the ice. You can clearly see a large ice formation just behind and the the left of them. During the ice breaking scene it is still there, yet when the ice is cracking and they back the way they came its gone. Also, in the over head shot the terrain all looks flat. See more »

The opening production logos are accompanied by bending elements: the stars in the Paramount logo are accompanied by splashes of water, and the Nickelodeon Movies logo is seen ablaze and is cooled down with a blast of air. See more »
They went too fast and all the characters talk like they're reading off placards. The computer generated stuff was good though but i got less than what i expected. What a waste of time and money. I'd rather had stayed home and watched the original cartoon instead.
The original cartoon is ten times better to watch. Even if i consider this movie as a unit in it itself, its missing a lot of story where a new viewer wouldn't be able to connect the points. Although it has good computer generated animation and stuff but you still get less than you'd expect. There are bits where you expect it to be funny and it ain't, no fun.
Anybody who has watched the original cartoon will tell you how much of it they have skipped in the beginning of the movie. The story line is completely shot, you cant tell whats really going on.
