Karate Kid it was not. Worse movie of the summer. Will and Jaden please take a summer break. You have lost the magic. Please go into the studio and write a script for Karate Kid II, to be release in the summer of 2015, that will give me time to forget this nightmare. You are one of my favorite people but the script was all wrong. The film made no sense whatsoever. It seem to me that you was betting on your name to bring the people into the theater. Your star power is getting dimmer with me, I still remember " I, Robot" and I am still reeling from that disaster. My last request, never use M. Night Shyamala to direct or produce anymore of your movies.
I should buy that movie because Jaden lived thought all the hard times. He is the best actor ever just like his father.
You know it’s never a good sign when you’re sitting at a movie screening and every time you look up to gauge the audience reaction they’re either yawning, checking their watches, or gazing at their smartphones. Such was my experience for nearly the entire duration of the new Will Smith-M. Knight Shyamalan movie After Earth.
I’ll spare the long and odious backstory about a boy named Kitai (Jaden Smith) who years desperately to prove himself to his father Cypher (Will Smith): the story is set in the future when humanity no longer lives on planet Earth (this seems to be a recurring theme in movies lately - Wall-E much?). The ‘rangers’ that travel the universe (in search of what we never know exactly) crash land on Earth where Cypher is critically injured. Kitai finally gets his chance to show his pop that he gots the stuff of a legend. Okay then.
The movie isn’t bad per se, it’s just needlessly tedious when it should be loud and boisterous. For all his charm, there is nothing particularly complex about Will Smith and the same can be said about his son Jaden. Try as Shyamalan might to instill these two with a futuristic and neo-intellectual depth, it just doesn’t work, and it comes off as hokey rather than sincere. Imagine casting Eminem in Al Pacino’s role in The Go dfather. That basically what this experience boils down to.
My boyfriend really wanted to see this film and I agreed because I was interested in seeing if Will Smith’s son has got the talent. Well, the film was absolutely horrible and I definitely do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I mean the film looked great visually and it s obvious that the budget for this film was huge, however it was empty inside and way too long and way too boring. Jaden Smith is a talented young actor that still needs to work on his craft but I was quite impressed with him overall.
This was a really really bad film and I definitely do not recommend seeing it in theaters. First of all, the film makes absolutely no sense, second, the dialogue is absolutely horrible and third, the lead has zero charisma. Jaden is good at running, jumping and trembling but the kid has no charm and it was hard to watch him for 90 minutes, it felt like forever. The film was extremely boring and even though it looked pretty amazing visually I do not think it is worth your time or money. M. Night Shyamalan should just stop making movies because they are getting worse every year.
I did not expect this film to be as bad as it was and yet it surpassed my worst expectations. Basically, Will Smith could not come up with anything else to give to his son (because the kid has everything) so he decided to give him a movie and now all of us have to suffer because of it. Jaden is not a bad actor per say, he can run and jump and tremble with fear but the kid has no charm and the whole film is basically about him so it was really hard to not fall asleep. The film also makes no sense most of the time and the dialogue is laughable, I think that it is time for M. Night Shyamalan to stop making films.
Oh gosh, this film was absolutely horrible and I hope people will avoid seeing it in the theaters, because it would be a waste of their time and money. I might even say that it is one of the worst films that I have ever seen, it was that bad. I bet Will Smith is regretting his decision to let his son star in this film pretty bad at this moment. Where do I start? Well, the film makes no sense, it looks really cheap visually, the dialogue is laughable and finally Jaden Smith has zero charms and watching him for 90 minutes was pure torture. Overall, I suggest avoiding this film at all cost.
