Maybe not the worse, but the worse movie adaptation ever was the Last Air bender.

Terrible acting, not saying character names right, making earth bending a joke, and changing the race of every group for no reason.

As someone who watch Air bender from when it began to when it ended as a kid, it was liking waking your childhood house burn down.

Normally I sort of roll my eyes when someone brings up a Hollywood blockbuster as "the worst movie evah!" No matter how bad they are, they're not going to be as bad as something like Red Zone Cuba or Manos: The Hands of Fate.

But The Last Airbender is kind of an exception to that. It was such a crushing betrayal to see this beloved franchise handled with the level of care you'd expect from one of the worse episodes of Star Trek: Voyager.

Ah yes. Keep the earthbenders in a prison made of.. earth. And require 9 of them to move a small pebble.

Ah yes, the movie that required the world conquering totalitarian army to run around everywhere with braziers otherwise they wouldn't be able to use their mediocre magic powers.

Such a dumb movie. Such an utter betrayal of an excellent TV series. Never forgive. Never forget.

PS EDIT: Of course, normally my answer for this question would probably be some of the seriously awful Christian movies that have been made with disgusting graphics but you see the thing is, those ones and other bad movies you kinda get because movie making is hard. Avatar meanwhile already had a rock solid base, a complex lore that should have been red meat for any competent studio... and it was made by an otherwise extremely competent studio. It's just unforgivable. It's simply awful, not only for what it was but for what it represents. It was trash, and it absolutely should not have been.

If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Yeah, it's such a shame they never made any follow-up series either...

Happily, they did make a short two-episode prequel about the first Avatar, Wan - which was pretty nice.

I've only ever seen the movie and it wasn't horrible imo, just forgettable. If I think really hard I can vaguely remember some bits and pieces. I think someone was frozen in time?

You've spoken like someone who didn't watch the original cartoon series. That TV show is still widely held up as one of the best examples of world building and story telling in all of television history. I mean it, and I'm not just talking about fans either. It's talked about in actual courses on creative writing.

It's when you watch that movie in a context where the bar so high, with such utter, consistent excellency, that the crushing mediocreness of the film becomes apparent. It's not about the film itself. It never was. It's about what it represents.
