I Am Legend is a the huge blockbuster film starring the one and only yep, you guessed it Will Smith! This film was released surrounded by a huge bubble of hype and in my opinion this film was so over hyped that the only thing people were likely to feel about I Am Legend was disappointment. I Am...

ConsRubbish CGI, poor ending!

I Am Legend was released in 2007, and directed by Francis Lawrence, a relative newcomer to the directing business, who's only other piece of work worth mentioning was Constantine. The movie is based on a 1954 novel by Richard Matheson, which has been adapted for the silver screen twice before, as...

My room is currently a bit of a mess. Clothes (clean) all over the place, few mugs with tea dregs in the bottom, half used tubs of Vaseline everywhere, a suitcase (empty) lying open in the middle of the floor and a guitar or two kicking about at the sides. Right next to the rather large pile of...

I Am Legend opens with a news report: It's 2009, and - without as much fanfare as you'd expect - Emma Thomson calmly announces they've created a cure for cancer.

***I Am Legend*** This film is a kind of disaster movie; but not in the usual pattern that I was expecting. I enjoy watching end of the world type scenario's like The Day After Tomorrow or Independence Day - big action films, when humanity pulls together to save the world. However, although the...

About the film I am legend, a science fiction/ horror film, was released in 2007 and is based on the novel of the same name by Richard Matheson.

If a black man can rule the world then he can rule the movies, Will Smith a candidate for both jobs if we are honest, although we will leave Obama to the Whitehouse and Smith to the Moviehouse for the time being. I'm sure they will get plenty of experience and training in each others disciplines...

Consending could be more drawn out

I'm a self confessed vampire and zombie film lover, and that's a serious understatement! The very day I saw the trailer for I Am Legend I knew I had to watch it! It promised to be an action packed science fiction film. The movie is based on a 1950's novel, 'I Am Legend' written by Richard...

Review: Smith bravely mines dark emotional depths (BBC, 19/03/2008)<br><br>Smith is the perfect actor... to play a survivor who has no one to talk to but his dog and himself... he also draws on the vulnerability he showed last year in THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS (Entertainment Weekly, 19/03/2008)<br><br>Slick, adrenaline-fuelled fun (Los Angeles Times, 19/03/2008)<br><br>I AM LEGEND is mind-blowing excitement (Maxim, 19/03/2008)<br><br>A scary, inventive, exciting and breathless adventure that combines the best elements of CHILDREN OF MEN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE ROAD WARRIOR (New York Post, 19/03/2008)<br><br>There is something graceful and effortless about this performance (Mr Smith's), which not only shows what it might feel like to be the last man on earth, but also demonstrates what it is to be a movie star (New York Times, 19/03/2008)<br><br>Big Willie has no problem holding the screen... director Francis Lawrence (CONSTANTINE) keeps you squirming (Rolling Stone, 19/03/2008)<br><br>No one... could fail to be impressed by the gobsmacking digital creations of an empty, ruined Manhattan (The Guardian, 19/03/2008)<br><br>Smith, sporting a newly buffed physique, delivers an extraordinary performance as a man slowly coming unglued under the strain of no human contact and a constantly alternating role of hunter and prey (The Hollywood Reporter, 19/03/2008)<br><br>A beguiling portrait of ache and isolation in post-apocalyptic New York (The Times, 19/03/2008)<br><br>
