I'm going to be honest here, and after watching the movie you'll probably agree with everything I said here. Don't go in expecting action in your face (it's relatively slow paced), and I would suggest only going to it if you're a fan of Will Smith and Jayden Smith... like REALLY a fan. I would say the majority of the movie, pretty much all the scenes, are zoomed in on one or both of them. Jayden is trying really hard, and he'll be great, just not right now. Will Smith of course is great without even trying like always. Some might even wonder if this is kid friendly, well, yeah it's pretty kid friendly... ish... The lack of gore makes it kid friendly (mind you there is imagery of death after the fact) but there are some moments with some jump scares for some reason, so as long as the kids can handle that they'll be ok?. Save yourself the money and time, pass the theater experience for this one, wait till it hits Bluray, in fact, even better, wait till it's free on Netflix instant

AFTER the few touching moments between a Father and his only Son, and after the excellent computer generated graphics of some very wicked looking Beasties, I was left feeling like Will Smiths son's acting still needed some lessons. ALTHOUGH his acting has definitely has improved over earlier movies, he still needs a few more years to learn how to develop his characters a bit more. Excellent directing by M. Night and OVERALL a good movie that may have been better in 3D and is just between a So-So and a GO.

Family Movie. It was touching and exciting. A feel good trust and connecting relationship. Beautiful. I get it. Both myself and my son rate it a 7 out of 10 at Best. I will purchase when it comes out.
