Not bad, not great - Possible Spoiler Alert

As Science Fiction movies go, this one is a bit of a light weight. It is a good vehicle to let Will Smith's son take a lead role, but the script is lacking in all the elements you really want in a great movie. While the special effects are very good, the script just does not allow the actors to convey the intent of the movie: Estranged father and son go on an adventure, and son has to undertake a hero's quest against great odds to save himself and his father. At the end the son overcomes his flaw and through the process he and his father reunite. Well, while the movie goes in that direction, neither character is particularly likable, due mostly to the shallowness of the script. Also, it begs the question, wait, if they have all that technology, where are the big guns? So the movie seems a bit contrived to support the reason for the hero's flaw rather than getting there in a different way.

Horrible Movie

I am totally disappointed with the acting considering Will Smith was in it. The role was too big for his son and should have been given to someone else with much more skills. I am skeptical to see any more movies that the Smith family stars in. Very disappointed.

Not sure why people were so disappointed in this movie, I agree in could have been better in some ways. Missed a vital piece of info and maybe it called for a bit more action but all and all decent movie. Go see

Family Movie. It was touching and exciting. A feel good trust and connecting relationship. Beautiful. I get it. Both myself and my son rate it a 7 out of 10 at Best. I will purchase when it comes out.

Should have been a good movie

I can't believe there are critics who say this is a must see. It had the star power and a good idea. Unfortunately Jaden Smith dragged it down. I never believed he was an elite soldier recruit, nor did I see any sense of urgency to save his father. Had this been recast, it may have done better
