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!

the storyline was about a father-son relationship that needed repairing. The acting of Will Smith was terrible. Jaden's acting was sufficient. I would not buy this DVD nor recommend this movie to anyone. No true science fiction action, combat scenes.

The story was okay, the visual effects were nice but not too amazing like Iron Man or Star Trek.
Turn OFF: The material used to show the starship after crashed it seemed not believable. (more new age starship kind it, like curtains. cloths all over ???, etc)
The rest was interesting to see the son growing through his challenges.
I was concerned about the director which with the exception of the six sense and maybe signs (the end was so, so) the last half dozen movies that he did were not that great.
For me he is good in building the initial suspense and you think something amazing is going to happen but by the end of the movie unfortunately most of the time it comes out short (mentally when you see, you think is that it ???). If he could improve his endings I think it would help him. This movie was not too bad, predictable but with a nice ok end.

It seems that M. Knight Shaymalan didn't eve try. We picked out scenes that were ripped off from all old and latest TV show and movies. He ad a great few years of production but went downhill fast. I would say to get ff his fat ***if he is going to produce a movie and take our money.

I am a huge Will Smith fan so my review will be biased. I thought the development of the relationship between father and son was great...as for the action?? It was okay, at times, gory. I would not take a small child to see this like some adults in the theater do. P.S. I LOVE WILL!
