Yes, I know. Most people hate After Earth. In fact, when we ranked M Night Shyamalan’s movies, we put it close to the bottom, with only The Last Airbender “beating” it. 

But, unlike Airbender, where I easily understand the animosity toward that movie, I never quite understood why people dislike After Earth. Because you know what? I really like it! I mean, I definitely wouldn’t put it up there as one of the best sci-fi movies of all time like Alien or 2001. But, when it comes to being a rousing, father-and-son story set in the distant future, I think it succeeds on multiple levels.

With Will Smith apparently back in the audience’s good graces with the resounding success of Bad Boys: Ride or Die at the box office, I thought that now was as good a time as any to talk about one of my favorite Smith movies, After Earth.
