One of the most amazing movies so far this year! both roles Jaden and Will. Gave the screen another prospectives of how movies needed to be done. I thank all the crew from After Earth for the lovely 90 minutes!

The story was okay, the visual effects were nice but not too amazing like Iron Man or Star Trek.
Turn OFF: The material used to show the starship after crashed it seemed not believable. (more new age starship kind it, like curtains. cloths all over ???, etc)
The rest was interesting to see the son growing through his challenges.
I was concerned about the director which with the exception of the six sense and maybe signs (the end was so, so) the last half dozen movies that he did were not that great.
For me he is good in building the initial suspense and you think something amazing is going to happen but by the end of the movie unfortunately most of the time it comes out short (mentally when you see, you think is that it ???). If he could improve his endings I think it would help him. This movie was not too bad, predictable but with a nice ok end.

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.

It seems that M. Knight Shaymalan didn't eve try. We picked out scenes that were ripped off from all old and latest TV show and movies. He ad a great few years of production but went downhill fast. I would say to get ff his fat ***if he is going to produce a movie and take our money.

I am a huge Will Smith fan so my review will be biased. I thought the development of the relationship between father and son was great...as for the action?? It was okay, at times, gory. I would not take a small child to see this like some adults in the theater do. P.S. I LOVE WILL!
