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

Jaden Smith will play the role of a boy coming into manhood in this movie.
I like this movie more than Jurassic Park. The drama and tension was awesome.
Any one person who enjoys Sci-fi and man against nature will love this movie.
Will's role was great also its amazing seeing both he and his son work together.
I can't wait to see what else they have plan for the future.

this is a great movie about a boy becoming the man that his father would be proud of.
P.S. DONT LISTEN TO THE CRITICS!!!!!!! THIS IS A GO!
GREAT FATHER/SON MOVIE.

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.

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.
