4 Give this film a chance!thedeno1 | 23/10/2013 | See all thedeno1's reviews (1)I enjoyed this film and I think it should be given a chance. I have read quite severe criticism of the story line and the acting between Jaden and father Wil Smith, yet I think it is unfounded. The story line is unusual yet bounces along at a brisk pace and the special effects are very credible with some surprises. For me both the relationship between father and son (on screen) is pretty true to life and when Jaden has been 'bitten' by some toxin secreting leechy thing and loses his vision and says 'dad help me please' you can sense the vulnerableness of Jadens character and the desperation to help of Wil's of wanting to be there to help his son yet cannot. In all if you want a family sic-fi movie (note rated 12 years and over) that is easy to follow and has something a little different from the mainstream 'blast 'em to bits' sic-fi movies this could be for you.
