This is sad, if Will Smith cant make this a hit... no one can..... I noticed that M. Night wasnt all over the poster for this movie... especially with his reputation. What a waste

Critics Are Overly Critical—See the Film for Yourself—Also Good for Older Children

I enjoyed the film and felt that Kitai's character was fleshed out pretty well. It was established that he was smart and had some field training although he fell short of proving himself to be a ranger while in the academy. Hey, he was a young teen living with some serious scars and a hero dad who was out saving the world but not his family. The fact that Will's character was severely injured and unable to move his lower body allowed him to feel real fear for his son who had a daunting task to undertake. It would have been nice to see him cry or agonize more but that may have been out of character. It would have also been nice to see more terrorizing creatures. I think there were four if you include the insect. The ones they had were pretty cool. Not sure that a human can actually outrun several monkeys. All in all, the movie held my attention and was entertaining. It empowered a young man who didn't know what he had in him. I also liked the capability of his suit and the mother bird.

I ENJOYED THE MOVIE MYSELF. WATC HING JADEN SMITH PLAY THE ROLE THAT HE DID WAS HEART FELT. HE AND HIS DAD MADE A GREAT TEAM. I WILL GET THIS WHEN IT COMES ON DVD.

The CGI wasn't the best, and some of the acting wasn't anything to write home about. With that being said, my wife and i really enjoyed the movie. Not worth paying $10 per ticket but if you can get in to a dollar theater or rent it, its worth checking out.

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.
