Moving on we have Will Smith and M. Night Shyamalan. Two of the most overrated talents in Hollywood teaming up to bring us "After Earth," a movie with a script that feels like it was copied directly from a video game design document (possibly Metroid: Other M). Just check out this short breakdown of some of the story elements:
- A super suit
- A mission control guy
- An impractically cool weapon
- A time limit
- A geothermal checkpoint system
- A final boss
Really, this should have been a Naughty Dog or Ubisoft project....
For the sake of enjoyable film viewing experiences, I hope I don't have enough material to write up another one of these for awhile. Then again we have an extensive back catalog to dip into as well as new releases coming down the pipe all the time so you might see another installment in the not too distant future.
