The film's potent scenes of lachrymosity make the voyage worthwhile, at least until the unimaginative monster shows up.

An indecipherably inert action flick sees out-of-form director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) stuck in the same snoozy rut as his worst film, the notorious The Last Airbender.

Will Smith and M. Night Shyamalan both at the peak of their respective "lost in the woods" career period, After Earth is a complete disaster.

The memory of After Earth is so painful that I still feel like my eyes are burning.

I'm not sure where to begin with this movie.

After Earth is an ok film providing that the logic meter in your brain has been switched off. Otherwise don't rush yourself to watch it.
Jul 9, 2020
The cumulative result of all of these disasters is a weak, ugly, forgettable science fiction movie.

In the hands of another screenwriter and with other actors, perhaps it would have inspired Shyamalan to do more serious work. [Full Review in Spanish]

This is just one extended bore fest, and everyone involved appears to be on autopilot.

After Earth might signal a new future, in which the wunderkind filmmaker can't find financing any longer.

After Earth, a witless, banal, tedious, melodramatic special-effects fest that is disappointing from the opening sequence until the credits role.
Nov 17, 2018
Awkwardly probing, After Earth feels like a cinematic homework assignment for Smith's teen-aged charge Jaden with Shyamalan's requested presence as the hired tutor catering to the movie's arbitrary, surrealistic vision.

At least something like Battlefield Earth is unintentionally hilarious; After Earth doesn't even have the dignity to be laughably bad.

A listlessly written, lackadaisically executed story which can't seem to do much more than march through its preordained paces.
Oct 25, 2018
With little in common with Shyamalan's other films, it's difficult to compare this to his other projects except to say that if he was trying something different, it didn't work.

After Earth stays grounded, and manages to tell a pretty decent story.
Apr 17, 2018
The future-based characters seem to bear no relation at all to actual living, laughing, arguing human beings.

With all the other sci-fi options at multiplexes right now, this Will Smith vehicle will probably get lost in the shuffle.
Oct 31, 2017
Will (Smith), normally box-office gold, has a seriously off-day, and the leaden, humourless script is awful. I was bored after barely five minutes.
Sep 5, 2017
Preachy, draggingly directed by M Night Shyamalan and just not much fun.
