Movie Review: After Earth 2013

No comments :

Title: After Earth 
Language: English
Genre: Action/Sci-fi
Running Time: 95 Minute

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.

Apologies for the late review, guess most have already watched it but I am doing it anyway. :)

What do I think about it:-
One of those beautifully crafted CGI unable to be backed by an engaging story that makes you dream of space travel and instead it tries to get you emotionally bonded with the only two rememberable characters in the movie, a father and son drama in space. 

Predictability is blood on the hands of almost every hollywood director these days despite being a M.Shyamalan flick ( was hoping for a stupidly forceful twist) instead I get boy saves father and himself. 

I was annoyed with the acting the whole time, while many can argue that it was the nature of the characters ( A dad without fear or emotion + A cowardly jittery teenage boy trying to prove himself) it didn't had any convincing element at all becase everything was so forced... I am a fan of Will Smith but I also know when my favored actor is ready to either retire of go back to his roots so it was a pain for me to follow through this film that was clearly written (credited) by Will Smith in hopes of boosting his kid to stardom. #notconvincing

To sum it all up, I felt like I was watching a high budgetted and fully scripted reality TV shoe for surviving in the while. 95 minutes was too short to have any decent character development and engagement and I found myself rooting for the URSA to kill them. *evil* 

Rating: 0.5/5 - Why go for this when you have something else better to do, like gardening. 

Note*: Did not expect a Class 1 Quarantine planet to feel like a Safari Zoo.
