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
When Kristofer Hivju showed up on set, he got into a discussion with the make-up department, who wanted to cut his characteristic long hair and beard.

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 »

The classic Hollywood problem: a colossal budget for the special effects and the actors, with a crap script: it's rough and confusing, with some bewildering and moronic scenes. This movie is obviously a pop corn movie, but a bad one. On the other hand, I do not understand the unjustified avalanche of hatred against Jaden Smith, even if he is very far from Daniel Day Lewis, Cary Grant or Charles Chaplin, he is reasonably credible. Unlike the screenwriters!
