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....

Oh my God! If Will Smith had wanted to be in an M. Night movie that was good, he missed by a number of years! Sixth Sense was his one decent effort. But....to pimp your kids out as brazenly as this movie does, well...it's shameful. Let the children grow up and into some talent. Will Smith has some natural God given talents. Presuming your children have the same abilities is wrong...especially when you pimp them out to movie audiences. Oh gads. Horrid movie. Have not heard anyone continuously say [suh] for [sir] since Gone With the Wind. How inappropriate. oh gads...horrid.

It was an ok movie, but didn't live up to the hype. Ok for older children who don't mind a bit of suspense, not good for kids who scare easily. Nothin to write home about.

it was a positive portrayal of African Americans in futuristic times. the messages of "taking a knee" grounding oneself / focus / determination and family were also great...

I'm sorry, but this feels more like a high school play than a professional film - at least as far as the storyline and dialog go. The graphics are first rate. But, yawn, for $130m, you expect a lot more than this. Great for a nap.
