io9 on The Last Airbender.
Shyamalan has boiled every epic heroic story of the past 20 years down to its most basic, primal soup-y essence, so he can spray it all over the audience, in a kind of Hero’s-Journey bukkake. You will be finding chunks of Joseph Campbell’s calcified spooge behind your ears for three days after watching this film, no matter how many times you bathe.
It gets even better. Read the whole thing. (NB: There is some language, and you may not want to actually look up bukkake. Your first guess is likely close enough.)
