Will Smith stars in the third adaptation of Richard Matheson’s classic science-fiction novel about a lone human survivor in a post-apocalyptic world dominated by vampires. This new version somewhat alters Matheson’s central hook, i.e., the startling idea that an ordinary man, Robert Neville, spends his days roaming a desolated city and his nights in a hou… More >>

  1. A movie this limp and nonessential gets THIS type of “star” treatment? You can stuff a huge box with as many discs and extras as you want but it doesn’t make the movie any better. I Am Legend is simply “meh” no matter what type of spiffy box art is designed for it. Definite PASS on this one.

  2. ** SPOILER AHEAD **

    the guy is a brilliant scientist. the guy is strong. the guy is brave. the guy sacrifices himself. he is the best man on earth. no one else is as good as him. and yes, just before he died, he found the vaccine to cure the disease. what a coincidence.

    and why did the lady have to dress sexy and wear makeup when mankind is near extinction and she was running for her life?

    and why were there no corpses on the street?

    the man is depicted as sacrificing and “self-less”, yet the movie’s title is an egoistic “I AM LEGEND”.

    this is just a fake, made-up movie trying to make a man look like a god and a saint.

  3. I have no idea what Blu-Ray is but it would not work on my player. When I tried to adjust my player I screwed things up badly. Be careful when you buy a DVD if you don’t have a Blu-Ray player or have no clue how to use it on your DVD player. It can cause you a lot of grief. Amazon should give a warning to those of us who are not up on the LATEST technology — which is hard for some of us busy working folk.

  4. It’s a funny thing about `end of the world’ (EOW) stories, they usually read quite well, but rarely adapt well to cinema. I’ve always had a fascination with EOW, not that I’m morbid, I just believe it is an inevitable scenario. One day, humanity as we know it, will be drastically altered. Perhaps viral, or perhaps ecological. No, not global warming. I’m talking asteroids, here. At any rate, a thousand years from now, maybe even ten thousand years from now, or maybe even tomorrow, some catastrophic event will bring about the destruction of society and decimation of mankind.

    As with virtually all EOW stories that evolve from print to film, I AM LEGEND, the movie, falls far short of the book. That’s NOT to say that the movie is not worth seeing, or even not enjoyable. It was actually quite enjoyable for me and maybe even one of the better EOW movies made to date. But….

    There’s always a `but’ right? The movie falls short on several fronts. There is too much time spent on scenes which really fail to contribute much to the story, and not enough time spent explaining important details. There is a brief elusion to God and His plan for humanity, but that shred of promising storyline is short lived. I never like to give away too much in a review, so I’ll not go further into the story itself.

    Now here’s what this movie does offer. Suspense, drama, fast cars, good verses evil, high tech weaponry, zombie-like humanoids and everything else one might expect. The filming is good, special effects are first rate. There really IS no casting here, it’s pretty much a Will Smith solo performance.

    In the end, if I had it to do over, I wouldn’t spend $10 at the theater, but I would definitely pay a couple of bucks for a rental.

  5. This movie has great SE and the vampirea looked fantastic but there are two reasons i give it one star.

    1) We already own this movie twice (last man on earth, The omega man)

    2) Will Smith is not fit to this role. For this role we need A REAL CHARISMATIC ACTOR who could convince us of how it is to be lonely in this world by his performance and will smith has nothing to do with vincent price and hell…even with charlton heston.

    One star for the SE and the mutants. I will stick to the earlier films…
