Even though the feel and the composition of Legend of Korra didn’t have it like the Last air Bender it was still an amazing series with great animation, plot and character development.
Now, I know many people tent to bash on it since it didn’t have the constant opposition that Aang and the gang had, when having to face against almost the whole word. Yet the last Airbender was still a black and white, good and evil, yin and yang plot. You pretty much felt what it was right and what was wrong.
However, Korra (though her being the avatar was a breeze compare to Aang. With all the support from her allies and relatives) still faced one of the greatest challenge and emotional conflicts a hero faces; which is the gray zone...
The gray zone is were two or more parties shared the same conflicts but address it depending on their own definition of justice, or where good and evil can be view in different ways depending on individuals perspective.
This theme makes it so the main character questions her resolved, or doubt creeps in her mind whether what is the right way and who justified it or who dictates it.
Amon, being the main Antagonist with a mask, plays the part of being a leader who promised to deliver the abused, discriminated and bullied non-benders of the society to a free and equal city, which for many people is the answer they had been searching for.
The you have another character as Tarlok who with his own views of justice and being overzealous with his power, tends to abuse his power and gets a dark stamp on his back.
As a viewer of the show, you can see and even adapt the events to real life. in many episodes i felt Amon had the right idea or justification to what he was doing and having almost an entire city backing him up, gave you a sense of righteousness towards him. At the same time it conflicted to your own sense of right and wrong, as his action were extreme and a bit radical, yet it was what a normal revolutionary would’ve done in his case
In the meantime Korra being cooped up most of her life in the south, was hot-headed, naïve, optimistic and a little arrogant towards her skills, but at the shows goes own she develop more positive attributes making her into a well like character and respected Avatar.
I recommended anyone to see this series, is both for young and old with a good story and amzing characters that you can relate and have a good laugh at times.
