M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth is, without a doubt, the worst movie I have ever watched. For starters, the only reason this movie exists is because Will Smith wanted to help jumpstart his son's acting career. What better way to do that than to star with your son in a big budget action movie, right? Wrong. Will Smith's charismatic personality is non-existent in this movie, as the plot requires his character to be stationary for the duration of the film. Jaden is on screen for the majority of the film, and he has no personality whatsoever, almost to the point that it can be likened to watching a piece of cardboard act. The plot is your normal cookie cutter Hollywood action movie, the action sequences leave much to be desired, and everyone overall in the movie acts as if they are apathetic to be involved in the production. Most importantly, this film evoked no emotional response from me, other than boredom.
Everything that After Earth does wrong, Inception does right. I may be impartial as my favorite director directed this movie, but regardless I consider Inception to be my most favorite movie of all time. Inception has a fantastic and original plot, centered around the idea of "Inception" or placing a thought into a person's mind that wasn't there before. Visually, the movie is absolutely stunning...
