I had heard so many negative things about this movie I was prepared to absolutely hate it. Usually I'm very open minded, but I went to this screening with the preconceived notion that it was bad and I was going to be mad at Will Smith for making it.
I wasn't wrong.
This movie was a story of the journey a teenager went through as he grew from a scared little boy, into a "courageous" young man. He manages to save himself and his father from a hostile environment, simultaneously mending many unspoken hurts they are both holding onto. The depth of pain is clearly evident in the father, but the son...well, not everyone has a passion and calling for acting. I didn't like this movie and was unbelievably disappointed.
