‘After Earth’ movie review


Stars: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Sophie Okonedo

Father and son acting duo Will and Jaden Smith play father and son Cypher (Will) and Kitai Raige in this apocalyptical, sci-fi action film. After crash-landing on Earth, a planet deserted by humanity a millennium ago, Cypher and Kitai face hostile forces on a planet where everything has evolved to one purpose: wiping out human life. Cypher is wounded in the crash so Kitai has to venture out and retrieve the beacon from the ship’s tail that will keep them alive. With the inimitable M. Night Shyamalan in the director’s chair, moviegoers can expect thrills, spills and chills. –p.d. lee
