    After earth proved that Will May be a good actor but he is not a good writer. He can’t write competent stories

    biggest plot hole is that Cypher rage had enough emotion to get married and have a son?!

    I didn't think this movie was really bad. It seemed weird, but interesting. I love animals and future evolutionary scenarios, and some of the ideas and designs of the creatures in this movie i really liked (the baboons and the ursa being my favorite). Its a shame thats not what people think of when they talk about this movie. Its the flaws that stand out the most, which, i agree, this movie has plenty of.

    Is it so wrong that I was rooting for the baboons and ursas? I really wanted this idiotic kid dead. Now I feel dirty.

    ok first off it's will Smith so no you can't talk bad about it go f*** yourself (huge fan btw)
    2, he is human and everyone gets angry just having no fear dusnt mean no emotion but that also dusnt mean HE knows that so him trying to stop ALL emotion and failing works the only problem with it is it doesn't happen ENOUGH if it happened to him with every emotion but anger and the kid points it out and the dad starts to open up yet stay fearless that have been better
    3,he was probably going to have the father/son talk either later on the ship or at the base to let the kid com down and give himself some time to think on what he wants to say but the ship crashes half way there
    so ya suck a dick (or don't your choice again big fan 👍👍👍👍 just like Will Smith more)

    That nepotism joke is kinda ironic after what happened where only his brother remained on his channel... plus his hired actors.

    "I like it, but I think it's something bad", is a funny line. No one takes it as a serious statement. This movie is trash though.

    Now I think about it this might have been intresting if multiple kids from different backgrounds being stuck on earth. Showing us how we we effect the youth with our mistakes. Maybe one kid loves the planet because hes a child soldier and all they can understand is conflict. One could freak out because they can no longer rely on tech. If you still want to stroke Jaden than just make him the leader trying to get them to work together to survive.

    After Earth, strangely more enjoyable than anything after Cloverfield in the Cloverfield Trilogy. At least the alien looks real here compared to the 10 Cloverfield Lane which made the 1953 version of War of the Worlds aliens look real. Think about that.

    Momo would not aporove of those fashion choices. You should pay more attention to theme! The correct combination is gorgeous, mature, lively, sexy and warm. The theme is Army! That Bohemian combo is so obviously simple, cute, lively, sexy and cool!

    “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” - A much better version of denying fear.

    I'll admit, I'm not an expert on cinema or the Sci-Fi genre for that matter, but I'm a person whose a HUGE fan of Star Blazers and at least I know how proper "navigational space talk" is supposed to sound like. Listening to Smith and those 2 pilots talk nearly drove me out of my skull. Heck, even the 70's english dub of Star Blazers had better space dialogue than this.

    My biggest issue with this review literally occurs 3 minutes in where he says that not only do the Aliens not have names, but you never see them. THEY ARE CALLED URSA'S AND THE ENTIRE CLIMAX WITH JAYDEN'S CHARACTER HAS HIM FIGHTING A FREAKING URSA. Those ARE the aliens. wtf? that being said, this movie...sucked and could've been so much better.

    Y'know, when you really think about it not having fear would be pretty bad in the long run, fear is something that can help prevent us from doing dangerous things that could kill us, fear is what would stop you from charging at a grizzly bear armed with just a Swiss Army knife, fear is what would stop you from diving into a pool of sharks, fear is what would stop you from trying to jump the Grand Canyon on a motorcycle, you see what I mean? Fear keeps us from throwing caution to the wind and doing stupid things that could end up getting us killed

    Put this as reply to someone's else's comment but thought I should put it up here too. They spit acid, guns even energy weapons probably make too much noise or smell, robots might be too clunky to work given the lack of prosthetic tech. A "invisible" sword wielder probably has a better cost to kill ratio than rockets and turrets that might attract more of those things. We also see only a snippet of that war. They're probably more conventional weapons elsewhere. I also doubt those are the alien only weapons. They seem more like weapons of terror than more useful creatures.
