2.0 out of 5 stars The stuff of nightmarzzzzzzz., 28 July 2013
This review is from: After Earth [Blu-ray] [2013] (Blu-ray)
What started off with great promise, ended up being just half a movie, or a 1hr short story stretched to feature length.
What was probably a tight, lean, poetic f(l)ight for survival in script form, has gone the way of every other post 6th Sense M Night movie, which is a real shame, because at it's core, this is a very intriguing premise! having read the back story that leads to the film, it looks like the studio were afraid of fleshing out the back story and putting it on screen.
A Failure in my eyes, and I so wanted it to be good! It's a very minimal, and zen like movie, but that's it's downfall, not a great deal happens, maybe if the cinematography had been more experimental, and the characters more engaging, it could've done something interesting! there was no drama, I didn't feel anything for the characters.
In another directors hands, this could've been a taught, nerve wracking journey, Darren Aronofsky, Jim Jarmush, Neil Blomkamp, anyone but M Night! it needed something other worldly, not the usual CGI fare ( while some of it is fine, it just wasn't expanded on enough) But, what do we get? the Usual Hollywood, homogenized mush..... bland, risk free, served on a plate.... please, do something interesting!
Thankfully Elysium will be here to show us how to do thought provoking sci-fi....
