“A REALLY BORING LEGEND!”

published 22/02/2009

Procute little dog

ConsALL OF IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

Now before I begin my review, I want to state the reason why I have put this review under this DVD cover. I personally think it is important to review under the exact cover. The DVD I have in front of me is the 2 disc special edition DVD. I very much doubt there is any difference in the films...

ProTense thriller

ConsDepressing at times

I am Legend is one of those frightening views of how man could end up destroying the planet that we all live on. Whereas some films focus on the nuclear threat this film actually looks t the effects of a devastating virus that mutates from a vaccination hence the effect on the population. Will...

“Am I Legend?”

published 23/06/2008

ProAlternate ending a must see.

ConsStill just a zombie movie

After watching the movie the first time my reaction was mixed to say the least. Reading the description gives u a broad stroke to what the movie is about, but what it doesn't elaborate on is the fact that while "Will Smith comands the screen for most of the movie", most of the movie is 85% of it...

Not for me

ProGreat ending

ConsThe rest of the film

I am legend? Personally, i thought this one stunk like unwashed foot! All in all its a film with over an hour of buildup and ten minutes of actual action at the end - touted as an action film. Will Smith usually (and there have been exceptions in the past) does do films that are pretty good...

this film starts off a little slow and i think it taks a little too long to get to know what happened. will smith doesn't speak for the majority of this film other than to his dog, but in all fairness he plays a very good part even though there isn't alot of dialect. one for the ladies as there...

Product Information : I Am Legend (Special Edition) (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

In I AM LEGEND, Will Smith joins the ranks of Vincent Price (in 1964's THE LAST MAN ON EARTH) and Charlton Heston (in 1971's OMEGA MAN) as the star of an adaptation of Richard Matheson's 1954 novel of the same name. Often surprising in its focus on loneliness and loss, this thoughtful, eerie, and restrained sci-fi horror film provides a parade of startling visuals, but never allows special effects to overcome the human element. Smith, in a strong performance very different from his usual persona, is Robert Neville, the lone survivor in a New York City where streets are overgrown and deer gambol among deserted vehicles. Following an epidemic, the Earth's population has been turned into an army of nocturnal zombies. Immune to the virus, military scientist Neville searches for a cure in his Washington Square townhouse. Haunted by visions of his family leaving quarantined Manhattan two years prior, he drives through the city with his German Shepherd, Sam, by day and barricades his home from the monsters nightly. But when Anna (Alice Braga)--another immune stranger-finds him, they will have to fight the onslaught twice as hard.<BR><BR>Akiva Goldsman and Mark Protosevich's emotionally-charged script showcases the charisma of Smith, who commands the screen alone for most of the picture (aside Abbey, the talented pooch). Director Francis Lawrence (CONSTANTINE) uses music minimally, wisely allowing the eerie cityscapes to remain mostly silent. The set pieces, including an overgrown, deserted Times Square and a lion hunting a deer in the Flatrion District, are goose bump-inducing moments of stark beauty. A chilling and effective adaptation of a horror classic, I AM LEGEND is also a thought-provoking piece of Hollywood filmmaking.

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>
