Review for After Earth (film)

My review for this movie, starring Will & Jaden Smith, can be summed up in two words: don't bother.

It felt like, to me, a father giving his son a gift (a movie) and forcing everyone else to watch it. Will played the hardass father whose son was never good enough and Jaden played an eager puppy. Throw a few dystopia lines in, spin in a salad spinner, and Bob's your uncle.

I can't even try to make it sound like this film was worthwhile. So I won't. If you feel like watching a teenage boy get lost and saved by a giant eagle, feel free. I know I won't watch it (again) though.
