Personality is a choice

This twist-less Shyamalan sci-fi is not bad. It's not good either, but it's not bad. In fact, I'll be damned if I could elicit any reaction to this film given how incredibly lacking it was in any sort of emotion. The dystopia Earth - which could have used more dyspothathy (sp?) IMHO - is really just a backdrop for this father-and-son story which, for...

After Smith Movie

After Earth After Earth Will Smith wrote it, he & Jaden stared in it, and Will & his wife helped produce it, so its Smithy. Also M.

Anyway, I found it was ok, good father & son show...

Jaden Smith takes centre stage in a futuristic rites of passager that plays like an extended episode of The Twilight Zone. Although "Oblivion" narrowly remains this summer’s better ruined-Earth actioner.

What undoes the film is its rather rancid parent-child sentimentality (a Shyamalan staple, admittedly) and a charisma-free performance from the younger Smith that suggests the apple has fallen very far from the tree.

There is no small irony that this sci-fi action adventure is about surviving a serious crash. The scorched earth left behind by "After Earth" is sure to leave a scar on everyone involved.

The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening.

Prepare to cringe and snicker whenever the characters are talking, but gasp when Shyamalan just shows amazing stuff.
