After Earth -The review

Movie Info
A crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.


Despite all the uncharitable...no, awful reviews and press this film has gotten I just had to see it. I saw the trailer and it looked amazing, I wanted to see it and no false press is gonna stop me. Many think the film really is just one giant vanity project for Will Smith's ego(And a vehicle to promote his son and show the world the sheer talent) well who cares. I strongly believe its just that
people are very averse to what they perceive as a public displays of nepotism. But it might very well be one of this summer's blockbusters. However, what I can safely say is that it is a lovely story about father and son bonding with a little bit of an undeveloped plot. It is nice and clean with (no silly sexual innuendos) sentimental sci-fi movie. It's no classic, but it's a special movie: spectacular and wise.
