After Earth

2013 | 99 minutes | Rated PG-13

Several willeniums in the future, humans have abandoned Earth and now live in the stars, where Kitai (Jaden Smith) is the son of humanity's numero uno soldier, General Cypher Raige (Will Smith). Wanting to bond with his son, Cypher takes Kitai along on a mission—but what was supposed to be a trip for just the two of them hits a code red when they're caught in the middle of an asteroid field. Both of their lives get flipped, turned upside down; with a room-shaking boom, the spaceship they're on crashes somewhere on Earth that's even wilder than the wild west. If you expect the Raiges to just kick it and declare there ain't no place like home, you're wrong: On this far-future Earth, temperatures vacillate wildly—there's winter and summer, summer, summertime in the same day—and it's crammed with angry CG animals. It's up to Kitai to rescue them, and, in the process, turn from a whiny wuss into a hero who's so amped he thinks he can beat Mike Tyson. The whole thing feels like a familiar groove, but slightly transformed—just a bit of a break from the norm.
