I Am Legend (2007)

Director: Francis Lawrence

Stars: Will Smith, Alice Braga, Charlie Tahan, Willow Smith

Robert Neville is a scientist who was unable to stop the spread of the terrible virus that was incurable and man-made. Immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and perhaps the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague, The Infected, lurk in the shadows. They are watching Neville's every move and waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind's last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows 
he is outnumbered and quickly running out of time.

I did not have much hope in this movie at all. I knew it was a graphic comic, and this is a review of the movie. The movie was kind of boring. There were just too many scenes that they were trying to make scary or suspenseful that just fell flat. It just did not work like they wanted it to.

The most odd part of the movie was the Mutant victims of the plague "the zombies". They all looked alike. You would think that there would be some differences in each one of the creatures, since they were all once normal humans. The creators did not use any imagination in making these creatures. It would have made the movie better. That was one of my main complaints of the movie.

I am not a fan of Will Smith at all. He is basically the same in all that he does. He is the main one in the entire movie, until two more characters are introduced after half the movie is over. It seemed like it was just too late for it.

This movie was just a fail for me. It was just too slow and dull for over half of the movie. I know that there are many people that really did like this movie. It just was too much of the same thing. Enjoy.
