After Earth Reviews
Although M. Night Shyamalan isn't entirely to blame for his last example of his declining filmography throughout the 2000's and early 2010's, as Will Smith was heavily involved in the writing and filming process, a lot of his unpopular tropes such as emotionless acting, overreliance on exposition and uninteresting ideas about science-fiction is what ultimately kills this attempt at telling a story about father-son bonding.
As mentioned before, M's poor directing ability manages to suck all the life out of one of the most goofy, flamboyant actors in the business and it's a shame that Jaden Smith, who has done great work with the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid had his career destroyed by this film.
Overall, After Earth is just boring, pretenious trite that thankfully ended up being the last film of Shyamalan's dark age, before picking himself up again with Split and The Visit.
Estúpida y predecible.
