After Earth is pretty violent and bloody. I didn't enjoy it but did realize during the middle that Jaden Smith is also the kid that plays the karate kid.

God-awful flick unless you're a 8-year old. OK Plot; bad acting; ridiclous dialogue. This is just another attempt by Will Smith to put (son) Jaden out there and "show off" his talents. At some point, Hollywood nepotism has to be brought to heel and give other struggling child actors a chance.

A decent sci-fi flick. I didn't realize until the end credits that it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who seems to have lost his golden touch in recent years. Will Smith does a great job, as always, while his son Jaden's performance is decent.

I especially enjoyed the visual effects. The architecture and spacecraft had an organic, futuristic feel and the future technology was believable and pretty cool.

Sci fi film that is ok at best, however for those with a shorter attention span, this may not be the movie for you. Starts off with a promising beginning, but the whole concept becomes lost. Most noteworthy as yet another pairing of WIll Smith and his son Jaden.

Piece of fluff movie to promote Jaden Smith. He is given everything on a silver platter so he doesn't have to earn his stripes to get a lead role in a big screen movie. Might be a good kid but acting isn't one of his talents.

If one watches this movie not thinking that this is yet another "Jaden Smith vehicle" set-up by his father, Will, it's okay. There are some good parts in it. The acting isn't terrific, but it's a passable story. Every young actor should be so lucky to have this opportunity.

Cypher Raige: Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity Kitai. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story and that day mine changed.
