The animated series that was a popular attraction on Nickelodeon gets elaborate live-action treatment from director M. Night Shyamalan ("The Sixth Sense"), but some fans of the franchise still might appreciate the original version more.
Noah Ringer plays a youth with the special ability to control each of the world's elements - fire, wind, water and yes, air - positioning him to prevent an implosion when those who can handle only one element each are at odds. Dev Patel ( "Slumdog Millionaire") and Jackson Rathbone ( "Twilight") also star. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; deleted scenes; outtakes. ** (PG: V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
