honestly, the movie wasn't THAT bad.

the concept was dope, the future technology, special effects and overall production value were all solid. I just think the whole "father/son" aspect was played up WAYYYYY too much and came off as extremely cheesy. the parallels between the characters on screen and the Smith family's real lives/public image were far too transparent and distracting. Will should have just produced/conceptualized the film and cast it with randoms and/or white people.


It really just came off as Will Smith using his celebrity and influence to artificially manufacture his own child into a "box office superstar" or whatever. audiences can see thru that sh*t.


that being said, i think it will probably still do really well overseas because non-americans are much less jaded and cynical about our celebrities than we are.



also, i guarantee the next Will Smith movie will be another $100million monster. he doesn't make the same mistake twice.

I dont even think it was much the acting, the movie was just a bad idea and put together poorly. I saw Will trying to explain the movie on multiple occasions, and every time it was like he was stumbling to explain it or make it sound interesting.

Needs to stop experimenting and just stick to sh*t that works. Go do some over the top action/comedy film, and have Jaden do Karate Kid 2. And keep it moving.

A myth among movie elitists ? I understand on paper his movies have done ok in the last few years but he has burned through any goodwill he earned, and is now running off fumes.



how come they obviously hid the directors name from all the press and didn't put it on any of the posters or trailers if he's still such a draw ? The stink of failure is on him , he manages a profit , but people know he is trash now and avoid his movies IF they know he made it , but 90% of people going to see a movie have no idea who the director is unless it's Nolan or a few others that they publicize, but they didn't even advertise him being the director because his name is box office poison.



Do you really think Airbender was a success ? They wanted a billion dollar franchise they could do a trilogy for and got a movie that they probably didn't even make money off of after all is said and done. Lady in the Water broke even ? Do you think a studio is happy about that ? Breaking even is a waste of everyones time. The Happening was awful and panned by everyone who saw it critics and audience.


Devil he didn't even direct and made money because it was a cheap horror movie.


They can't even put his name on a movie anymore because people will avoid it if they see him attached but you're arguing he's still considered a success ? That makes zero sense.

They waited entirely too long to release the movie.. Imax was really not necessary and it was marketed horribly... The buzz completely died from this film

And the cinematography was really nice, but like airbender, the acting is just p!ss poor outside of big names


I heard the Special Effects were really bad and cheap looking too, any truth to that ? I saw his avatar movie and couldn't believe they were really using effects that bad.

dude need to remember they shot this sh*t on a 130m budget and made a sleeazy 27millons, that 95% of will salary alone

and with the bad review, lack of interest and let alone M Night name attach to it, they're not breaking that budget and will be another John Carter

he may had a good run w/ making big profits, but im telling u this is the start of a downfall
This ain't the start , this guy was supposed to be the next Spielberg and they won't even put his name on the poster of his own movies any more.

I'm just glad it flopped. It was so stupid. And yeah, he made this instead of Django Unchained... HA! Just like when he made Wild Wild West instead of The Matrix. The effects weren't 10,000 B.C. bad, but just overall the movie was completely underwhelming.

M. Night isn't really the worst director. It's just when you make movies where everyone expects a twist, it takes something out of it. Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs are all strong movies.
