I didn't watch the cartoons so I actually liked the movie. My only comment would be that the water tribe people are lame. They could have fought of the fire tribe without the help of Aang if they just attacked earlier. And the water tribe princess wouldn't have had to sacrifice her life if she just used her bending skills against the general guy. But other than that I like the movie. The special effects were awesome.
