At least it’s not The Happening.
The good news: it wasn’t as awful as I expected it to be. The bad news: It was still a bad movie that played like a lame videogame.
It was Hollywood nepotism at its worst. Jaden Smith seemed to have lost all the charms he displayed in the Karate Kid remake.
For all its worth, I was happy they downplayed that it was a Shyamalan movie because (spoiler alert!!) it had no requisite twist.
