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 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...
