The story begins when General Cypher
Raige (Will Smith) returns home to
care for his 13 year old son, Kitai
(Jaden Smith). An asteroid storm
damages Kitai's craft necessitating a
crash landing on planet Earth.
As his dad lies critically injured,
Kitai strikes out on his own to
find a rescue beacon. His journey
begins by scaling a moist treacherous
mountain followed by battles with wild
monkeys, a monsterous bird and an
aggressive amphibian monster.
Does Kitai recover the beacon? Of
course he does. The sequence of events
which leads to the recovery is firmly
grounded in suspenseful moments at
every turn. Kitai (Jaden Smith) plays
an admirable part as the son of General
Raige. This movie is well worth seeing
for general audiences everywhere.
Does Jaden Smith get an Academy Award
for his performance? Stay tuned for the
action at next year's Oscars.
