AFTER EARTH (2013) : REVIEW

Let me tell you something about a director named M. Night Shyamalan. He was a young, bright and promising director. He was the one who directed a successful movie in 1999 called The Sixth Sense, which had the most memorable twist in a movie.

Then, all of sudden, his work hit the down-low with The Happening, Lady In The Water and of course, the truly dissapointing The Last Airbender. And just that, he then became famous as a director who continously produces movies that flop in the market. For that very reason, I didn't expect much from him, especially when his companion is Jaden Smith. No offense, but that kind of choice really set up people's mind to certain expectation, and it wasn't high. So, we need a comeback from him. The real question here is : "Can he?"
