I just watched After Earth starring Will Smith and his son and to say I'm disappointed would be a major understatement. After the movie finished the only thing I could think of was Battlefield Earth which is the worst movie I've seen in my entire life. I'd gladly give After Earth the 2nd position in the list of worst movies I've ever seen.
I'm a huge fan of Will Smith and loved how emotional he played in I Am Legend but he really dropped the ball here, even though Kitai is played by his real son he doesn't show believable emotions towards him. I don't know if it's was me holding the screen tilted or the movie, but it looked an awful lot like stupid tilted shots of Battlefield Earth. The whole time I was thinking I'm watching a lame remake of Battlefield Earth.
This movie was utterly worthless and a total waste of time, same as Battlefield Earth. I've seen M. Night's other directed movies and they were pretty solid work (like Unbreakable) but this movie was a joke. It's definitely the worst work of Will Smith so far. I prefer Uwe Boll's movies to this, it was a total waste of time.
Anyone thinking it'd be a good movie is out of their mind. Also Jayden Smith is a shit actor and Will knows it, that's why there is little emotion between the two. It's hard to act with someone so fucking deadpan.
