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.

After Earth is more like an episode of a tv show than a movie. I kept waiting for the "punch" - the twist, the REAL story, but nope, it really is just about getting from point A to point B. There is no story. There are many unanswered questions such as:
Why is it called "After Earth?"
Why do the characters use an annoyingly strange accent?
My plants all die if it freezes for more than 3 nights so how does Earth look so lush?
And don't even get me started on the lame technology blunders(!!!!!), the horrendously bad acting, lack of plot and decent script, etc. I don't think it's possible to be more disappointed in this movie and anyone who actually gave it a rating in the green is giving a nod to Will Smith. I adore Will Smith as much as the next person, but c'mon, Will, don't force your kid on us!! You are so amazing...but after this, you owe your fans another "I Am Legend" or "i Robot". Nepotism is not always the best idea. After Earth is a huge example of that.

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.
