Storyline

One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai. When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance. Written by Columbia Pictures

Trivia

The original cut was 130 minutes long, and included more backstory on the decline of earth and the formation of Nova Prime. However, the film was vastly re-edited after performing poorly at test screenings, and any actors playing Nova Primates were either reduced to extras or cut out entirely. The deleted footage will likely never be seen, as M. Night Shyamalan is satisfied with the theatrical cut. See more »

Cypher states that all the living organisms on earth have evolved to kill humans despite the fact that there haven't been any humans on earth for 1,000 years. See more »

Just bad....
20 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Will Smith is badly cast in a role that requires him to be serious, and talk slowly, and try to project the personality of a respected senior military person. In the first two aspects he does fine, but that's not Will Smith's forte - slick roles such as Independence Day and Men In Black are. As the character he is dreadful, but that's not his fault - I got the sense he was trying to make something of it, but it just doesn't work.

Jaden Smith cannot act. End of. having said that, its creepy that his dad is wooden compared to him, but that's not really saying much.

The idea of the film is not terrible, but the casting and the dialogue are both huge mistakes.
