Family Movie Review: After Earth (PG-13)

AfterEarth ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): half-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13        Length: 100 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 12+. Kisses between a husband and wife; some mild cursing; and lots and lots of blood and violence. Someone has a rotting, corpse-like face, and lots of aliens attacking humans: descriptions of wounds and fights between human and aliens; humans slicing limbs off aliens; aliens tearing apart other animals and attempting to kill human children; aliens splintering human corpses through tree limbs; and so forth. The movie is very lacking in the language and sex area, but for anyone under 12 or so, this level of violence might be too much.

‘After Earth’ is the first stellar disappointment of the summer. Will Smith, you have led us wrong.

By Roxana Hadadi

Will Smith is one of the world’s last remaining megastars, and he can get away with a lot. Whereas Tom Cruise’s career has always been somewhat marred by his Scientology and Brad Pitt’s divorce from Jennifer Aniston didn’t do him any favors, Smith has remained somewhat unscathed. People still see his movies; people want to see him in movies. That should change with “After Earth,” though, which is undoubtedly the most disappointing film of this summer (so far, at least). Want illogical science fiction with terrible acting? Then “After Earth” is just for you!
