Wow!...not much more to say.

Will Smith doesn't pull any punches in "I Am Legend." He played a survivor in new York City, struggling to fine a cure for a terrible virus and fighting off zombie-like humans who had the virus. it's a good movie, but a great movie. that movie has reminded me of the 1996 film "12 Monkeys" and the recent but better movie "28 Weeks Later." but it was Smith's performance that helped this movie.

Unfortunately this movie just isn't Will Smith's type of movie. He seemed bored in some scenes and his performance just was not up to his usual. The beginning of the movie dragged along and was so dark, it was hard to tell what was going on. There were way to many flashbacks and they kept repeating the same thing over and over. I just could not get into this movie as it was way to disjointed. It was a dissapointment to me.

This is a movie to see, if for no other reason than seeing NY empty. Will Smith makes the survivor role interesting but he does seem to lose a bit of his normal screen appeal in this post-apocalyptic, zombie thriller. Go see this movie, Will Smith may one day become a legendary actor based on performances like this.

Solid zombie film, but largely predictable and largely cliche'.

Apart from the ghoul-like creatures and an abandoned New York City, this film is really lacking in the build up to the climax. I have never really liked Will Smith as an actor, and I still don't. But if you want to see a movie with a few cheap scares and an awesome depiction of a ghostown New York, then see this movie. The overall storyline and time frame of the film should have been expanded upon.

Very Good movie. Will Smith's performance is almost worth the price of admission on its own. A very adaptation of the Richard Matheson story.

I didn't have huge expectations for this movie, even though it did very well in theaters. I didn't have a chance to catch it during the first few weeks of its theatrical run, and after a point, it seemed like a better choice to wait for the home video release. (Three months from theatrical release to home video release, that's fast!)

Overall, I really enjoyed this movie! It's not one of those movies where you come out of it thinking you want to watch it again, but you end up thinking about it after the fact, and you begin to appreciate Will Smith's performance and the elements of the story. I watched both versions, separated by about a week, and it was not at all hard to watch the movie all the way through a second time.

Being a Mustang fan, the opening scene of him tearing through the streets of New York in a brand new shiny red Shelby Mustang got my attention! The aforementioned scene of him running into the dark building to save his dog has the most tension I've experienced in an action movie in quite some time.
