The CGI wasn't the best, and some of the acting wasn't anything to write home about. With that being said, my wife and i really enjoyed the movie. Not worth paying $10 per ticket but if you can get in to a dollar theater or rent it, its worth checking out.

big fan of both of them but movie was basic "not all that much" the movie sets and effect were proudly disappointing, basically came off like a very low budget movie.

Too predictable! The entire movie seems to be geared towards Will Smith setting up Jaden Smith for a career. The least he could do was to make the movie believable. Jaden Smith has a really nice space suit that can change color but does not have the capability to keep him warm. One would think there would be more advanced weapons at that time. They expect us to believe that Rangers carry a staff and that's it? Also a beacon that will instantly notify someone thousands of light years away is not able to penetrate clouds? Get real.
I think the money spent on the movie should have been spent on a better story. The only thing that kept me in the theater was my popcorn, candy and icee that cost about $25

I'm going to be honest here, and after watching the movie you'll probably agree with everything I said here. Don't go in expecting action in your face (it's relatively slow paced), and I would suggest only going to it if you're a fan of Will Smith and Jayden Smith... like REALLY a fan. I would say the majority of the movie, pretty much all the scenes, are zoomed in on one or both of them. Jayden is trying really hard, and he'll be great, just not right now. Will Smith of course is great without even trying like always. Some might even wonder if this is kid friendly, well, yeah it's pretty kid friendly... ish... The lack of gore makes it kid friendly (mind you there is imagery of death after the fact) but there are some moments with some jump scares for some reason, so as long as the kids can handle that they'll be ok?. Save yourself the money and time, pass the theater experience for this one, wait till it hits Bluray, in fact, even better, wait till it's free on Netflix instant

This is an amazing movie. Though the "accent" was something that could have been without, my family and I enjoyed every part of it. As a family movie this is a must see together.
