Although After Earth is not M. Night Shyamalan's lowest point, it's definitely down there.
M. Night Shyamalan was once one of the most promising directors in Hollywood. Whenever his name popped up in a new project, we would be there to see what he had brought to the table next. Then he released The Village, and from there his career simply descended into the worst place for a director to find oneself in. The Last Airbender happened, and then it became clear that there were few places that Shyamalan could go from there. However, Shyamalan apparently still has some tricks up his sleeves since he now has a new sci-fi collaboration with Will Smith. With that in mind, is After Earth M. Night Shyamalan’s chance for redemption?
