I don't think I have every seen such an overall average film in my life; the acting was bad and stilted, the action scenes were few and far between, and many of the logical decisions made throughout the film failed terribly. The suit could change colors and alert the wearer of impending danger, yet can't keep the person warm? What the hell was up with that eagle? Why is it that the technology exists where you can travel between planets, yet people are still limbless? Made no sense in the film, and I was constantly asking myself why these things were not further considered. Nothing about this movie stood out, and while the visuals were pretty, that alone does not a good movie make. Skip it, and spend your money on something more interesting.

Better than I thought it would be. Yes Young Smith is not a good as Will, but the movie was done well. I jumped, my eyes filled with tears, and the visuals were darn good! At the end, the 90% full theater filled with applause. So if you're in to making up your mind for yourself, I'd go....

This movie is for diehard scifi fans only. Go to see Will Smith, or to see Jaden Smith, or for the storyline, but don't go for the acting. Once everyone else is dead or gone, father and son do fine. However, the storyline lags at some points and the weird accent used at the beginning was dreadful, but the computer animation and special effects are good throughout. Tree-huggers will be pleased to know that 1,000 years after man soils and abandons planet earth, earth recovered.

I really like this movie and I would recommend it. All of these people and their ridiculous opinions. They are sooo negative and pathetic. Really? Get over yourselves. You couldn't even pretend to make a movie half as good. It's easy to judge someone's hard work and dedication from your couch. They did a good job.
People are over critical of movies nowadays... Wannabe critics pick apart movies and just complain about everything.

Not much story line. Props were on a budget as obvious in scenes of spaceship wreckage. Thanks to Will and son carrying the whole movie. Despite so, I'm still a fan to Shyamalan's message of take care Earth or She'll take care of you.
