If you are comparing overall, the anime beats the movie. There is no way the human race would have won against any of the 4 nations benders. The Avatar animals would have a better chance of winning against the Avatar:T.L-A. animals as long as the Dragons Ren and Shaw are not involved. But when I 1st heard about the movie Avatar, I thought it was based off the X-Box game until I found out otherwise. That is what I think.
But you don't have to take my word for it.
