Although it is only June, this is the sure winner for worst movie of the year. a thousand years in the future a space ship returns to an abandoned earth and crashes in what looks like the Sequoia National Park. Only survivors, a stern Will Smith and his son Jaden.
Will spends most of the movie injured and strapped into a barcalounger in the ruins of a ship made of toilet paper and saran wrap. The ship has split in two and Jaden must find a beacon in the "piece of tail " of the ship. He spends hours running through a moss covered forest avoiding badly computer generated baboons and a massive boll weevil.
A major piece of crap.

Will needs to stick to comedy. This was clearly a vehicle to introduce his son to the moviegoer's but really fell flat. I think the audience laughed once- near the end. For sci-fi it was not very realistic. I mean one of the crash sites from their ship looked like it was draped in toilet paper! If you want your money's worth go see Star Trek instead.

This is not a good movie. The dialogue is stiff, and often painful, and for some reason, Will Smith and his son speak in bizarre, unnecessary accents.
But, the sets and the vision of an Earth which is a jungle, full of danger, were interesting, and I found the movie more watchable than I expected.

I saw the commercials and figured this would be a pretty good movie. But the only good parts were what was in the commercial... The acting was terrible and the plot wasn't very good either. He has no sense of urgency during the movie at all and he didn't have any real obsticles. The whole movie the dad kept having flash-backs to the same moment and bleeding out.. I mean the beast thing in the end barely even lasted a few minutes before that was over, and Jaden's acting during that scene was iffy. So if you were thinking about seeing this I would suggest you go find another movie like Star Trek or something like that. And if you don't care about my review and are going to go see it I don't suggest bringing kids because it is kind of gory and there are some scary scenes weaved in there, and if you are scared easily just bring somebody to cling to and you'll be good
