After Earth Reviews

Paul Whittington
Irish Independent

After a not very impressive crash sequence, the film settles into a running battle between young Master Smith and a series of CGI monsters, a schema that sounds tiresome, and is.

The dialogue is as wooden as the acting, and the plot is just silly. Truly, the only thing the film has going for it are some occasionally cool special effects.

Shyamalan mostly stays out of the way, but he still makes himself known, and not in good ways.

Calling After Earth the worst film ever made may be overstating things, but it's a disaster zone of Chernobyl-esque proportions.

The effects are second-hand stuff from Alien and Star Trek, spliced with Shyamalan's regular homilies on Personal Growth.

As drama, After Earth offers no surprises; as action, it's rarely stimulating; as a parenting manual, it seems that Will has thrown Jaden into water that's a little too deep.

There's an extended animated sequence where atop a high hill, Kitai is surrounded by helix swells of grackles and blackbirds, and the camera turns to reveal waves and waves of burly bison. To the wonder, ho!

Does not enhance reputations or entrance audiences despite, or because of, pretentions to being larger than pure adventure.

It seems proud of its predictability only because we should feel privileged to watch Will Smith and his son act in a second movie together.

Pompous, humourless tosh.

After Earth isn't the all-out disaster some would have you believe, but it certainly isn't the win Shyamalan sorely needs at this point. What happened to the guy who made Unbreakable?

Shyamalan's worst habits end up overwhelming the most formidable assets at his disposal: the Smiths.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

As the story moves along with an almost medicating dullness, so antiseptic and square and insulated from any fun or spark or non-self-seriousness, the entire movie has that plastic-wrap feel of a hermetically-sealed Hollywood vanity project.

The thinness of the story is its greatest undoing, culminating in an anticlimax that is distinctly unsatisfying.

...a step in the right direction for beleaguered filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan...

July 8, 2013

By any fair measure, After Earth is actually quite a nifty, pacy adventure film, even though it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who has not made a good film since his 1999 debut The Sixth Sense.

Uneven father-son post apocalyptic space adventure still a minor comeback for the director.

The dejected Will Smith is forced to inject himself with pain relief. The label warns that the drug could cause extreme drowsiness and impaired vision. One can only imagine that Will was suffering from both when he agreed to film this daft script.

This movie... is about nobody's pleasure or deep vision. It is, instead, about positioning two actors in the power structure of the film industry.
