This is not a good movie. The dialogue is stiff, and often painful, and for some reason, Will Smith and his son speak in bizarre, unnecessary accents.
But, the sets and the vision of an Earth which is a jungle, full of danger, were interesting, and I found the movie more watchable than I expected.

Will needs to stick to comedy. This was clearly a vehicle to introduce his son to the moviegoer's but really fell flat. I think the audience laughed once- near the end. For sci-fi it was not very realistic. I mean one of the crash sites from their ship looked like it was draped in toilet paper! If you want your money's worth go see Star Trek instead.

Although it is only June, this is the sure winner for worst movie of the year. a thousand years in the future a space ship returns to an abandoned earth and crashes in what looks like the Sequoia National Park. Only survivors, a stern Will Smith and his son Jaden.
Will spends most of the movie injured and strapped into a barcalounger in the ruins of a ship made of toilet paper and saran wrap. The ship has split in two and Jaden must find a beacon in the "piece of tail " of the ship. He spends hours running through a moss covered forest avoiding badly computer generated baboons and a massive boll weevil.
A major piece of crap.

The accents of the characters killed it some.
But the scenes, the creatures to hunt humans was very good. The story line was good....it is where were are headed in the destruction of Earth.
Loved the action.
