Peter Bradshaw on M Night Shyamalan's new flick starring Will Smith and his insufferable son, Jaden Smith:
Earth has been destroyed by climate change, pollution or whatever, and now humans exist in exile on other planets, but a space-flight with dad and son on board crashes on Earth, injuring Cypher badly, and now Kitai must win his respect by recovering a vital distress flare, which he can only do by vanquishing a horrible beast that feeds on human fear. So Kitai must be like his dad: show no fear. Or any emotion. Or any acting talent of any sort.
