Download After Earth Movie ,What happens when arguably the biggest movie star on the planet and the director of the worst film of the last 10 years (The Last Airbender) come together to make a movie? Nothing good it seems. (Download After Earth) So M. Night Shyamalan & Will Smith have combined forces to present to us this futuristic thriller in the shape of After Earth.
A crash landing leaves Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, a millennium after events forced humanity's escape. With Cypher injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help. (After Earth Download) With memories of his sister's (Zoë Kravitz) death at the hands of a unstoppable beast called a Ursa, haunting him, he is driven on to find a distress beacon that he will find in the broken off tail section of their ship. (Watch After Earth Online) The only problem being that it is located 100km away across now uncharted territory of Earth. (Download After Earth) Then Kitai discovers that there was a Ursa in the cargo hold of their ship which has escaped in the crash and is now pursuing him.
After Earth, much like a few of Shyamalan's movies, it starts out with an interesting premise, however the realisation of this premise fails in the execution. (Watch After Earth Online) While there are a coulle of big moments, the film fails to excite, or even manage any sort of threat for Jaden's character, thus undermining the whole "Everything on this planet has evolved to kill humans". (After Earth Download) In fact a distinct lack of creatures on Earth aside form a few apes, a vulture & a pack of wildcats also undermines the scale of the task that Kitai faces.
Also, when you have a huge movie star in the shape of Will Smith on board, who exudes charisma and you have him take on a role that requires him to be stoic and not move for the majority of the run time, while having Jaden, who certainly doesn't naturally have his father's talents carry the movie,(Download After Earth) which makes it more of a struggle. There is also a lot of moments of wandering through the forest with not a lot happening.
Shyamalan's direction hasn't improved much since The Last Airbender either, which makes the film a harder to watch, with poor lighting, weak direction,(Download After Earth) an obvious plot that holds absolutely no surprises & a final scene that will send you into hysterics for all the wrong reasons. After Earth is probably all you should expect from Shyamalan film these days and that's not anywhere near a good thing.
The first few minutes are stunning and go directly in medias res: A frightened boy wearing an oxygen mask and threatens to hyperventilate.(Watch After Earth Online) Against him, very close, his father, who urges him to secure gestures to rest until something unexpected happens that presses the viewers in the seats. In the next picture of the son is lying unconscious in the grass and remembers from the off to the evacuation of the earth and the first "Ghost", a fearless fighter who could defeat the giant man-eating creatures of the new home planet. Then the story continues again. (Download After Earth) So far all good. If it were not Jaden Smith, the son of the great Will, who has his shoot the film on the body can be tailor - apparently for the sake of belief that can be inherited talent and charisma easy.
Well, do not let it,(Download After Earth) and the box office of the opening weekend (disastrous $ 27.5 million) is also likely to Jaden's last loudly formulated vision to one day be a bigger star than his father, who once received a healthy shock. For Will, however, is "After Earth" the first flop for over two decades, and even "Wild Wild West" was then mercifully failed. His reputation as the last exception to the rule of a long-defunct Star system he may have lost it.
That may sound to malice, but it is not. For "After Earth" has its strengths and works well (very amusing compiled by Rob Bricken in spite of an impressive number of logic holes io9.com ) and an overwhelmed protagonist not so bad.(Download After Earth) However, the central problem is the intolerable nepotism,(Watch After Earth Online) even the Til Schweiger leaves many father-daughter-vehicle look harmless in his scene by scene noticeable intrusiveness. Will Smith has neither son nor themselves a favor here.(After Earth Download) From viewer to mention.
Humanity has left the earth has become uninhabitable. But NovaPrime the promised land beyond the known solar system, carries its own dangers - see above. The young Kitai (Japanese for "hope" - who would have thought?) Would emulate his heroic father only too happy, but the entrance to the Ranger Corps is denied. The fact that he still carries around a childhood trauma itself,(Download After Earth) does not make things better. In addition, the relationship with his authoritarian producer is not the best. A common trip into space to the site of the soon to be retired seniors to remedy this situation. But the spacecraft enters an asteroid storm and havariert calculated on the earth, which has long been a barrier zone. Only father and son survive, but Kitai remains the only uninjured. It is now up to him to activate the signaling device with which the two can call for help. However, this is located in 100 km from the crashed tail, and so begins a dangerous trip through unfamiliar terrain.
What follows is an action and CGI-packed adventure that the son has to exist, while the father he stands aside by radio (Kitais suit is a kind of full-body camera, which apparently can also take an external position is not really obvious reasons) . Primarily, this works maybe for a younger audience,(Download After Earth) but even adults can have fun on the matter. Were it not for the Jaden / Will-problems and the fact that everything, absolutely anything and everything in this film is as predictable as the reaction of an aggressive baboon when he is pelted with stones (well, which may well come from the example? ).
While on for a while with failure-ridden M. Night Shyamalan was "After Earth," a commissioned production, but the well-known trademarks of the once roofed with a lot of hope filmmaker is nothing more to see, despite everywhere - starting with the concept of a personal conflict, which only against the background of a global catastrophe can solve (think of "Signs").(After Earth Download) But in addition to the usual visual brilliance, the carefully selected frames, the manipulative assembling and touching down at several time levels drama that spins there threads where the audience for a long time can only detect hints, a difficult to ignorierendes feeling of Car epigonism spreads .(Download After Earth) This is the work of an auteur visible,(After Earth Download) have driven the need or a high fee or check both under the thumb of an over-ambitious superstars. For the first time Shyamalan had for a film in which he himself is directing the work on the script not only share with a co-author (Postapokalyptiker Gary Whitta, of which the original version comes from), but according to Variety can also endure corrections to were pressed him from the studio on the nose.
Less problematic than in some discussions with some excitement is the suspected subliminal Scientology propaganda to volcanoes and auditing,(Watch After Earth Online) about the ex-member Marc Headley for the Hollywood Reporter believes to have found. This may be anything, but who can influence them, this is not helping anyway. When about Kitai is admonished by his father always used to go to his knees and to fully concentrate on the moment, and when he gets drummed into fear is not real,(Download After Earth) but merely a projection into an unknown future, then you can also superficial around fishing in Zen Buddhism and is sure to find it. Who wants to L. Ron Hubbard actually see on the screen is in " Oblivion "already at the best address (and also ended up with a better film).
Two things are particularly regrettable: the history is more promising than the movie itself (a kind of "Starship Troopers" with inverted sign) and Will Smith here offers perhaps one of the best performances of his career. Free of ironic undertones and almost always tied to a single place,(Download After Earth) he plays his son effortlessly on the wall. So much ego obviously must be.
That the emergency landing by the way take place of all the earth (and so justify the title) must content makes no sense, as the home planet of the Predators would have done it. But perhaps we should say the content that father and son from their alienation can only find each other again when they return to their true roots,(Download After Earth) forcibly lösgelöst of one of their natural environment ungemäßen - somehow or something of that nature, the likes but please someone interpret the this is not the time to shame.
