Legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin knows space. So he should know if "After Earth," the new sci-fi action movie starring Will Smith and son Jaden, is realistic in its depiction of it.

Well, according to him, it's not.

After attending the film's premiere in New York City, the 83-year-old pointed out the movie's big flaw.

"There was a lot of noise. In space, you don't get that much noise" he said.

Aldrin, who was the second person to walk on the Moon after Neil Armstrong in the Apollo 11 mission, noted, "Noise doesn't propagate in a vacuum. We talked over headsets." Despite that, Aldrin enjoyed the movie's father/son dynamic and the visual design of cities in the post-apocalyptic universe 1,000 years from now. "I hope the aliens are more peaceful than they are in this film, wherever they are," he joked.
