MOVIE REVIEW: After Earth

SheldonCooper's picture

After Earth tells the story of human beings who have colonized a new world called Nova Prime, a thousand years after an environmental cataclysm had forced them to abandon the Earth. The story revolves around General Cypher Raige (Will Smith), commander of Nova Prime's military force, the Ranger Corps, and his son, Kitai (played by Will Smith's real life son Jaden), who washed out of Ranger training and was seen as a bit of a disappointment to his father. Cypher's mother convinces Cypher to take Kitai with him on what is going to be his final Ranger mission before retirement when their craft is caught in a meteor shower and forced to crash land on the now uninhabitable planet Earth. Cypher is disabled in the crash and it is up to Kitai to save his father and himself and get them back home.
