Dear God, who keeps funding M. Night Shyamalan’s movies? The guy went from something as brilliant as The Sixth Sense to that movie we prefer not to talk about, The Last Airbender. Do we remember this magazine cover?
And we all know how that turned out. Shyamalan just makes bad movies, and After Earth looks to be no exception. I think I need to see a trailer before I reserve final judgement, but from the sounds of this synopsis the sci-fi movie starring Will and Jaden Smith doesn’t look like it will be any good. In fact, the plot sounds akin to something the Syfy channel would produce. Read the synopsis below:
In After Earth, one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (played by Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.
