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 movie had a great concept and plot but after all the promotional hype about the evolution of earth without humans 1000 years down the road, I went into the theater expecting some fascinatingly weird things, both animal and plant, to confront our heroes. What I was presented was just so disappointing. There were no new bad ***creatures and deadly plants...only animals I can see in the zoo right now, every day (albeit with a little added makeup to make them more interesting). Man, what a bunch of hype.
The other problem I had with this movie is that for it to be a summer blockbuster, it was just too slow, lacking the "Fast and Furious," and "Star Trek" thrill-a-minute action scenes. It's what audiences expect for this type of movie. The few suspense and action scenes that are in the move are great, but there are just too few.
I'm just disappointed. With added thrills and action, this could have been a great flick. What possibilities! Unfortunately, it's only pretty good.

After Earth is a very solid movie. The acting from will smith was amazing, and it was amazing just seeing how far his son Jaden has come in his acting career. The movie had its moments of action, scares, and raw emotion that sometimes brought tears to my eyes. This movie is a perfect father son film that shows that at the end of it all when all hope seems lost, you still have each other. I would highly suggest seeing this film if you have not done so already. I GIVE THIS MOVIE AN 8.5 OUT OF 10!!!!!!

This movie promised to be good, but it was slow, the acting was flat (even though Will Smith's character was supposed to be flat....but it was detrimental to the movie). I walked out of the movie, and I haven't done that since 1989. Not worth the pay of the ticket.
