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.

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. Hivju was against it, and was even supported by Jaden Smith, but eventually lost out. To make matters worse, most of his role was eventually deleted from the final cut. See more »

This movie put me right to sleep. There were some goodies parts to the movie but they were few and far between! Will Smith is quite still and disconnected from his son. The son is dull and lacks much (if any )emotion throughout the film. Scenes that should have inspired awe and wonder just fell flat. I waited till this film came to the movie channels and I still feel cheated, cannot imagine how mad those who wasted $10+ to see it in a theater must have felt! If you must see it because it's a Will/Jaden Smith movie then do so without expecting too much. From what I have seen, those with low to no expectations enjoyed it the most.
