I really enjoyed the underlying messages in this movie (that danger is real but fear is an active choice we make on a moment by moment basis; and the father-son relationship). I such a fan of the Smith family and was excited to see the two working together towards a very entertaining sci-fi experience. ONLY drawback; I WANTED TWO PLUS HOURS OF IT!!

Thought it was excellent. The plot kept me on the edge of my seat and the special effects were good without being overwhelming. A good opportunity for parents to discuss the father/son relationship. My recommendation is to go!

I enjoyed the film and felt that Kitai's character was fleshed out pretty well. It was established that he was smart and had some field training although he fell short of proving himself to be a ranger while in the academy. Hey, he was a young teen living with some serious scars and a hero dad who was out saving the world but not his family. The fact that Will's character was severely injured and unable to move his lower body allowed him to feel real fear for his son who had a daunting task to undertake. It would have been nice to see him cry or agonize more but that may have been out of character. It would have also been nice to see more terrorizing creatures. I think there were four if you include the insect. The ones they had were pretty cool. Not sure that a human can actually outrun several monkeys. All in all, the movie held my attention and was entertaining. It empowered a young man who didn't know what he had in him. I also liked the capability of his suit and the mother bird.

I ENJOYED THE MOVIE MYSELF. WATC HING JADEN SMITH PLAY THE ROLE THAT HE DID WAS HEART FELT. HE AND HIS DAD MADE A GREAT TEAM. I WILL GET THIS WHEN IT COMES ON DVD.

I loved the movie but the accent could have been left where it was generated. The movie gave more than i BARGAIN for as there were many moments where you were surprised by something and it balanced. I would recommend this movie to anyone but not really small children.. At points i even used this movie to give educational lessons to the kids.....nothing like explaining anatomy and challenging the kids to explain why something is happening.
