Will Smith is amazing in the role. Jaden is following in his dad's footsteps.
Will Smith's greatest movie ever!
I didn't mind the story and its meaning, but the acting wasn't very good as well as the visuals.
really good movie!!!!
this movie is so bad, terrible acting, terrible story, low budget, litteraly the worst movie ive ever seen
what a crappy movie and crappy acting from both smiths
Low budget movie. A bit of special effects. No plot.
the kid is so bad at acting!!!!!!!
basically just a dad-son conversation throughout the entire movie. Bad Bad Bad Bad Bad
one of the worst movies of the year
The kid can't act! Mono-expression!
Thank God I didn't pay for this movie! Would have been a waste of money!!
My wife and I had hard time staying awake. Was so happy when the movie was over. Terrible movie and bad acting
Those 5 star ratings must be coming from the Smith family because this movie is terrible.
Suneagle's Review 4*s. Wow!! I actually loved this movie. I was expecting it to be bad so my expectations were very low because of all the other bad reviews but this movie actually had everything you want in a great sci-fi survival dad and son movie. Great monsters, awesome action, cool sci-fi with a plot they could seriously build on. Acting was even good. I really don't understand what people are complaining about ?!! I was Very impressed. Listen don't miss this movie, rent it, buy it what ever you will enjoy it have fun. Father and son movie have fun!!
I want my money back .....WILL
JUST PLAIN BAD
Terrible! Terrible! Terrible! I love even mediocre sci fi movies, but this is terrible!
I agree with others that his is not a bad movie but the acting is horrible. Not the usual Will Smith performance. Came away with a gem though about how to look at fear.
I slept almost during the entire show. The movie was more between father and son with the father as the narrator.
The best movie of the year.
It's not a bad movie. It was quite enjoyable. I had been expecting like Avatar and this was not it. But the kid did a good job. Like a young Kurt Russell. And he's a kid. The movie is kind of like a Lassie. Wish he did have a dog to pet and talk to (and lose and find) would have made it better. But as it was, Some of the complaints are fair - they use a contemporary local accent instead of standard american-english or a more clever futuristic dialect a la Clockwork Orange etc. so Cheezy/lame not trying. But I loved the set design. Ship was great. Hints of Organic meshed with Inorganic. That's skin not toilet paper dude. And who doen't like a good trek against the odds? Learning
THIS MOVIE SUCKED BIG TIME FOLKS..THERE IS A REASON WHY CLOSE TO 50 PERCENT GAVE IT A ONE OR TWO STARS, IF I COULD GIVE IT A NEGATIVE 5 STARS I WOULD, TERRIBLE ACTING, TERRIBLE ANIMATION, TERRIBLE STORYLINE..JUST TERRIBLE...EHHEEHE
Terrible move, if I could give it a zero, I would, better yet, if you really want to be tortured, go watch battle field earth with john travolta, and then watch this move, and then get drunk, because brother your going to need the booze.
Yeah please dont even bother watching this movie. Seriously the folks who gave it a five or four star rating are either wil himself, or his most devoted followers. This movie was absolutely terrible, and a total waste of money and time..If i could give it a zero I would..will has lost his edge folks..
The smartest, most thought-provoking blockbuster of the summer. Young Smith is a real find.
Will Smith's best movie.
His kid is TERRIBLE! Their accents are lame and slurry. If I'd know it was an M.Nightshamalalalalalalman movie I'd have skipped it! UGH
Good movie I agree with bad acting but I liked the movie overall
This is the best movie in a long time.
Please save your money & go see a comedy.
Must be nice to have rich parents who can finance a whole movie for you...have Will's son ever got a role where Will did not intervene? ANSWER: NO!
Please save your money & DO NOT go see this. Way too boring for me.
BAD....BAD....BAD....did I mention this was BAD???
Yes, how come Jaden only gets roles where his parents are the money backers for the movie? Just shows you it's who you know...."ZERO" stars.
How could anyone give this more than 1 star?
I agree there should be a "zero" rating. If there was, this one would get it.
Funny how Will's son only gets roles Will's involved in.
Best movie of the summer by far.
It is not a bad review. Good show about bond and survival.
I think the problem was that it was hyped up. Not enough action and M. Night should stick to directing suspenful/thrillers. Or he might tare up a horror flick. Honestly the story is slow and then when the action starts your like that's it? Will stole the movie at the end. Man can make you tear up. lol
It was OK not great but not horrible i went to see it with a friend and it was at around 7:00 and people still didnt show up to see it at 7:00 on a saturday. They could do better and then the theaters would be full. I wish they did better.
This movie was so bad that I wasn't even going to spend the time to write a review. I'm only doing it because I'd like to suggest a change to this review process to have a "zero star" rating because this movie doesn't even deserve to get a one star rating. Terrible acting, implausible story line, such an awful movie! Don't waste your money. That's all I need to say.
