The movie had a great concept and plot but after all the promotional hype about the evolution of earth without humans 1000 years down the road, I went into the theater expecting some fascinatingly weird things, both animal and plant, to confront our heroes. What I was presented was just so disappointing. There were no new bad ***creatures and deadly plants...only animals I can see in the zoo right now, every day (albeit with a little added makeup to make them more interesting). Man, what a bunch of hype.
The other problem I had with this movie is that for it to be a summer blockbuster, it was just too slow, lacking the "Fast and Furious," and "Star Trek" thrill-a-minute action scenes. It's what audiences expect for this type of movie. The few suspense and action scenes that are in the move are great, but there are just too few.
I'm just disappointed. With added thrills and action, this could have been a great flick. What possibilities! Unfortunately, it's only pretty good.

I will ne er understand the worlds beef with M.Night Shyamalan. I feel like all the professional critics water at the mouth to ry to bash him and the average movie writer is a little to dense to appreciate his artistic approach. After Earth Was Great. It wasn't "Epic" which is the majority of complaints im hearing, but Shymalan's movies never are. The action scenes werent over the top but they kept me in suspense the whole time. This movie makes a very real story out of a complete fictional backdrop. Go see for yourself and please ignore these people. Sometimes I wonder if they really even watch these movies.

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
