Critical response
After Earth has received negative reviews from most film critics. It is currently certified “rotten” with a rating of 12% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 130 reviews with the consensus: “After Earth is dull, ploddingly paced exercise in sentimental sci-fi — and the latest setback for director M. Night Shyamalan’s once-promising career.” It holds a score of 32 on Metacritic based on 35 reviews, which indicates “generally unfavorable reviews”. However, the film still earned a B grade CinemaScore surveyed from the general audience on opening day. Under CinemaScore, a C grade is the equivalent of a failing grade, and a B grade signals general satisfaction.

Joe Morgenstern, film critic for The Wall Street Journal, opened his review by asking: “Is After Earth the worst movie ever made?” His answer was “Maybe not; there’s always Battlefield Earth to remind us how low the bar can go.”

According to Time magazine, there six theories why the After Earth Bombed:

  • Blame director M. Night Shyamalan (Richard Corliss at TIME)
  • Blame Will Smith (Adam B. Vary at BuzzFeed)
  • Blame it on a less-than-successful collaboration (Nikki Finke at Deadline)
  • Blame it on critics and audiences (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Blame it on nepotism (Brooks Barnes at the New York Times)
  • Blame Bieber (Gary Susman at Moviefone)
