After Earth: Will Smith’s “Cypher” Has Ironically Undecipherable Accent

Seriously, what is Will Smith’s accent supposed to be? Southern? British? Erudite? South Afrikaner? At least Jaden just goes for a low-hanging-fruit “North Florida Southern.”

I want to be intrigued by this movie; but I can’t seem to build much nerd fire for it. Still, it’s refreshing seeing a post-apocalyptic movie where the future isn’t dominated by short white guys and transparently pale women. Some of the science seems dubious; but I’ll give that a pass too as long as Shyamalan doesn’t throw some idiotic twist in the last quarter of the movie (THE MONSTERS ARE US! WE DID IT! WE BLEW UP! YOU DAMN DIRTY NEO-SMILODONS!). As is, this looks to be a very straight forward sci-fi action-adventure that could be worth plunking down a few bucks to escape the heat this summer.

  1. It’s a rare combo fake English, dude, and douchebag. You see in the future the only ship that will make it to our new home planet will be filled with students from UC Berkley, University of Florida, and Harvard that thought they were going on spring break. They will create what they feel is the utopian society, with its own unique dialect.
