After Earth: An Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies have posted their latest ‘honest trailer’ – a four minute or so piece of film criticism using the ‘In a world…’ voiceover style – and this time they’ve set their dystopian sights on M. Night Shyamalanalan’s science-fiction, Smith-family-day-out masterpiece, After Earth.

You know, the one Buzz Aldrin thought had serious problems.

“There was a lot of noise. In space, you don’t get that much noise.” – Buzz Aldrin.



Oh, yeah, and that.

Screen Junkies manage to find great flaws in even very enjoyable movies, so imagine the vitriol they attack After Earth with. It includes…

- Will Smith’s annoying son.

- Will Smith’s charisma-free character.

- Will Smith’s charisma-free character’s name, Cypher Rage.

- Will Smith’s “take a knee” catchphrase.

Wow. That might’ve been the meanest they’ve done so far.
