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
There are two animals that can be linked as a proxy of animals that really co-existed with humans and were quite dangerous. The predatory big cats are often referred to as "sabre-toothed" cats, which could be true if one was using Machairodus or Homotherium as a reference. The giant condor could be based on Argentavis, a giant condor of the South American Miocene Epoch that is considered the largest flying bird to ever have existed. The Haast Eagle seems to also be a source of inspiration, which was the largest bird of prey ever to take flight and existed in New Zealand from the end of the Pleistocene to the middle of the Holocene in approximately 1400 A.D., when their main food source, the giant Moa went extinct through human activity. What this has to do with the condor of this film, is that the Maori Settlers told stories of the bird carrying away children, men, and women, and was known to these people as the Pouakai. See more »
During the voice-over at the very beginning, Cypher Raige's ability to not be detected by the Ursa is described. It is stated that "This phenomena is known as ghosting". The correct singular form of the word is phenomenon. See more »

WARNING!!! Don't waste your time, money or breath...Seriously...you'll regret it.
Couldn't even get through the 1st 5 minutes before I decided that it's not even worth watching any further(and no, I do not have ADD/Another Dumb Disorder) for the following reasons:
1. Insipid dialogue right off the bat/dumb robotic acting. 2. Amateur CGI, a 2 year old with an iPod could do better. 3. Stupid Director.
OK, I thought I'd give M Knight another chance, but he hasn't improved. In fact, he has become worse with each new attempt at movie making.
How could this even be released? Seriously, it's that bad...(the first 5 mins of course).
So, gut assumptions tell me the rest of the movie(if one would want to call it a 'movie') is more or less like the first 5 minutes of Crap.
I couldn't help but notice, also, that the movie poster is dominated by two large heads of presumably Jayden and the other on the right of whom I can't place a name is a good indication that the movie is all about them and them alone. I can see Will and Jayden standing behind some graphic artist in the studio telling them to enlarge their heads in photoshop. The Smith's are bleeding money and defecate gold eggs, so it makes sense now how this movie came to fruition; anyone else may have been run out of town. I say this with sadness, realizing all the wasted energy, time and money put into this from the catering all the way to director.
Maybe they'll make a sequel...oh, I can't wait...perhaps then it will be straight to video.
