Storyline

One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai. When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance. Written by Columbia Pictures

Another Dud From Shyamalan
1 December 2013 | by Rebel_With_A_Cause_94See all my reviews

If there's really anything positive that I can say about After Earth, it's that it's not as bad as The Last Airbender.

With that being said, it's still another terrible entry in Shymalans once promising career. Will Smith is completely wasted here given almost nothing to do and Jaden Smiths acting is anything but enough to carry the film by himself. The films is really poorly written and paced with a script that is so thin and derivative, it feels more like a generic video game than an actual movie. Shyamalans direction is so weak here that it doesn't even feel like he even directed. I will say there is some good cinematography here and there, but the film offers nothing new and ends up being one of the most dull and boring viewing experiences I've had this year.

The worst part of After Earth though might be that it's only a further reminder of how low the once promising Shyamaln's career has sunk.
