Buzz Aldrin Slams 'After Earth' for Being Unrealistic


The astronaut points out that 'there was a lot of noise' in the film's space scenes, while 'you don't get that much noise' in space in real life.

Buzz Aldrin has joined a list of reviewers who criticized M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth". After attending the movie premiere in New York on May 29, the real-life astronaut pointed out a flaw in the sci-fi movie on the scientific ground based on his own experience.

"There was a lot of noise. In space, you don't get that much noise," he said of the space scenes, which he deemed not realistic. The second man to walk on the moon added that "noise doesn't propagate in a vacuum. We talked over headsets."

Aldrin also thought the characters' action-packed journey on the foreign planet was too much. "The place was just totally lifeless," he recalled his experience on the moon, jokingly saying, "I hope the aliens are more peaceful than they are in this film, wherever they are."

Still, the 83-year-old praised the father-son dynamic between Will Smith and son Jaden Smith. He also told Associated Press, "The scenes of the cities were really remarkable."

Opening in theaters nationwide since May 31, "After Earth" follows Kitai Raige (Jaden) and his legendary father Cypher (Will) who are stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash.
