Jackson Rathbone: M. Night Shyamalan is An Amazing Director

Jackson Rathbone has stood up for his Last Airbender director, M. Night Shyamalan, in a new interview.

The 25-year-old actor, who attended the now infamous press conference where Night lashed out against a reporter, chatted with MTV News about his director.

“The critics in the U.S. … I just don’t think they really like M. Night Shyamalan anymore,” Jackson said. “I don’t know why. It’s sad because he’s such an amazing director and an amazing person.”

“Overseas, internationally, they still love him and think his work is genius,” he added. “It’s just one of those things – art is subjective.”

    Finally a Jackson Rathbone mention on your main site. I saw Last Airbender, it certainly wasn’t great but it wasn’t quite as bad as everyone made it out to be. I’ve definitely seen worse. Unfortunately Jax didn’t have much to work with on that flick.

    I’m afraid the press in England trask Shyamalan as much as the American press do. I’m sorry, but his last three movies have been terrible. Especially The Lady in the Water. I have bad, bad memories of that film.

    the movie he did with mel Gibson and jouquin phoenix was good. he’s done some real stupid ones lately. Did he piss off hollywood and now they won’t give him creative freedom. Or is it he’s run out of creativity.

    I don’t understand all the bashing. I know a ton of people, including myself, who loved The Last Airbender. So he had a few movies that weren’t the best….actors star in some crappy movies…doesn’t mean that from now on they are terrible actors. He’s a very good director. Oh, and I love me some Jackson! He has such beautiful eyes.

    This film is going to win all the Razzies this year. AWFUL in every single way. The tv series is one of the best American cartoons since forever. A movie version should have been 3 hours long for each film (season) and made on the level of Lord of the Rings. INSTEAD we get………….that? The acting was HORRIBLE. Jackson , if M,Night is an amazing director then you must be the worst actor since his directing and your acting SSSUUUCCKKKKEEEDDD in the movie. LAZY filmmaking ppl! I hope they remake this film in 10 years and give it to someone who does their research and actually has TALENT.
