I watched Will Smith's latest movie a couple of nights ago. It really is different. I have always respected Smith's acting talent. He does everything from comedy, to action hero, to drama, and does them all very well. Right off the bat I will say that in this case the acorn didn't fall far from the old tree.
Will Smith's part in this movie was basically a bit part with the focus being on his real life son Jaden. Jaden, in my opinion proves himself to be an extremely talented actor. He played his part very realistically right down to speaking with an accent throughout the entire movie.
The movie itself, aside from the concept of an apocalyptic earth, was a refreshingly original concept. I don't want to give too much of it away so I will just say that the story and plot were solid, the acting terrific, and the special effects were convincing.
Typically I like action packed thrill ride movies that really light up my big plasma. That is not what this movie is. But it certainly held my interest from start to finish.
This movie pairs well with my latest Altbier
