...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.

Visually impressive but sadly incredulous, "After Earth" is only redeemed by the performances of the Smith family.

Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan, who hadn't made a truly great film since 2002, returns to form with this exciting and well-paced adventure

While I understand the critical backlash towards Shyamalan, I disagree and found After Earth to be a solid movie, not great but good.

For all its mealymouthed dialogue and often comical solemnity After Earth at least delivers consistently diverting entertainment ...

it may not be the complete return to form of Shyamalan, but "After Earth" has all the goods necessary for an entertaining summer ride.

It's no classic, but it's a special movie: spectacular and wise.

Will Smith is a fun and funny guy. So why is Smith's sci-fi thriller screaming for a sense of humor?

After Earth at least looks distinctive, and the movie's overall atmosphere of close-quarter jungle delirium is enhanced by the cramped, earth-toned interiors of spaceships, off-world colony condos and crashed cockpits.

A beautiful bit of world-building that - if you're not chronically opposed to Will Smith and his kid - will transport you to the kind of adventure that I know I imagined in the backyard when I was younger than Jaden Smith.

A simplistic, father-son morality play strictly for little kids and diehard Will and Jaden Smith fans. Destined to be added to the pantheon of inadvertently-funny blaxploitation flicks with a devoted cult following.

After Earth is refreshing in that it's not rife with fast-cuts, whooshing camera shots, and overblown visual effects.

Director Shyamalan gets the most out of the Smiths, sometimes simply staying out of their way. He also keeps things moving briskly with a story that eschews exposition in favor of flashback glimpses.

It's an admirable YA adventure, a moderately engaging piece of sci-fi storytelling, a return to respectability for Shyamalan and a welcome departure for an aging Will Smith.

... the film offers some very knowing examples of the way both parents and children have to adjust their thinking over the course of their relationship, wrapped up in a visually dynamic world that simply makes the stakes feel more urgent...

The movie spent a lot of time teetering on the verge of failure but both Smiths pull it back and make it fairly enjoyable. Jaden Smith proves that he is a star. Haters gonna hate.
