    Synopsis


    I Am Legend
    Adapted from acclaimed author Richard Matheson's influential novelette of the same name, Constantine director Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend follows the last man on Earth as he struggles to survive while fending off the infected survivors of a devastating vampiric plague. A brilliant scientist who raced to discover a cure for the man-made virus as humanity came crumbling down all around him, Robert Neville (Will Smith) was inexplicably immune to the highly contagious superbug. Now the entire population of New York City -- and perhaps the world -- has been transformed into carnivorous bloodsuckers that fear the light and live solely to spread their contagion to any remaining living creature that crosses their path. It's been three years since civilization came to an end, and the loneliness has taken a devastating toll on Neville. By day he scours the city for food and supplies while sending out desperate radio messages in hopes that someone might respond, and by night he attempts to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus by experimenting with his own blood. But time is running out for Neville as the legions of infected watch his every move from the safety of the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. They, too, long to learn the secret that lurks in Neville's blood, though they will have to take caution while attempting to procure it because Neville will sooner die attempting to slay every last one of them than willingly giving up a single drop. Previously adapted for the screen in the 1964 Vincent Price frightener The Last Man on Earth and the 1971 Charlton Heston action film The Omega Man, Matheson's novelette also served as the inspiration for George A. Romero's groundbreaking zombie classic Night of the Living Dead. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Legendary in 4K !!!

      [Since I Am Legend was reformatted in 4k after several years I am only going to give my opinion about the 4K graphics] I promise that you will definitely not regret buying, or re-purchasing this movie in 4k, because the graphics are absolutely amazing! I've been selling off my 1,000 Movie Blu-Ray collection and I'm now starting to replace those movies with 4K movies so, now I finally decided to pull the trigger and get the I Am Legend movie in 4k. I already own about 95% of all 4K movies and I can obviously only buy new 4k movies when they're released so, I decided it would be the perfect time to finally purchase this movie. To be honest I was skeptical of buying this movie because it was made in 2007 and it was reformatted back in 2016 as one of the first 4K movies, but I was definitely hoping for the best possible graphics but expecting a lot of static. Since Best Buy is now selling the movie for $19.99 I knew the time was now that I needed to purchase this movie. I really hope that you have an HDR TV because if you do then you will definitely see beautiful Vivid colors throughout the entire movie and the graphics only get better as the movie goes on.

      i wish it was maybe 15 or 20 minutes longer but it made its point. thus is one of the movies where all the action is in the trailer. so dont see it expecting die hard. will smith gives one of the best performances of the year in this new york huanting epic. his dog sam does pretty good too even though they gave away sams 'moment' in the trailer. and what was wrong with the deleted scenes they had in the alternate version. anyway i liked both endings but i liked the normal ending better. i saw a youtube video that reviewed this movie and it made no scince. this guy said the special effects where awful and it was too over ther top and intense and that will smith had no reason to hate god. first of all, the CG was near perfect, it wasnt too intense at all, and anyone would hate god after a national tragedy like that happened. anyway, the scenes with no action(about 70% of the movie) where still interesting. and the 3 of 4 action scenes it had where great. they had just the right amount of intensety and scares. theres 2 great action sequences here. when he was looking for sam in the building-sure it might not have that much action in that scene but it built up suspense. and when will smith stabbed himself and tried to get away from the zombie dogs-that was good. the other 2 big scenes(the loading dock) and (his house) where pretty well done too. just the silence of the movie is good. will smith(robert neville) isnt your tipycal action hero and for good reason, it makes i am legend so much more believeable. thats why hes limping half the movie. the blu-ray version of this is the same as any other blu-ray movie, and thats a good thing.

      Not Entirely Legend Worthy

      Posted

      Throughout the film, Will Smith does an excellent job acting. He makes it so that we actually care about him as a character. The set location was done great. It looked just like the city dropped everything they were doing and just got up and left, which was basically the point. The supposed mutants looked OK. They weren't taken overboard and we could establish that they were once civilized humans by the way they look. However, after a while, they just became freaks. Somehow the transformation gave them more abilities than Olympic athletes. The plot started to get lame when his world seems hopeless. Just as the average movie cliche does every time, the babe shows up in the knick of time and saves him at the last possible second... yawn - seen it too much before. The plot got sort of twisted at the end. When we find that the "head" mutant was just after another mutant he cared about, they lose their whole 'nothing but instincts' feel. Anyway, it was a fair tribute to the original novel but didn't quite hit the best shot. If you want to really understand this film, or what it tried to be, then watch 'The Omega Man.' After seeing that film, this one isn't as bad as I originally thought, it just took a creative direction that may seem unusual or strange to some. This movie also goes to show that you don't need to cast living people to make the movie good. To me, the Manikins were perfect and were more funny by themselves than some comedians i've seen.

      A really great performance by Wil Smith

      The way that they created the look of Manhattan in this movie was just wonderful and Will Smith pulls off one of his best acting turns as Robert Neville. The way he has his days planned out and still attempting the research to find a cure for the virus is a key part to the development of both character and plot. Samantha (Sam) plays a strong part in the movie and is a great companion, friend and protector figure for Smith. The way he holds conversations with Sam is very touching indeed and makes you really feel that Sam is integral part of his survival and sanity. Just a great movie, and I will not offer any of the things that will give the ending away. I can watch this movie many more times as it is that interesting and each time, it seems to reveal something that I missed in the original viewing.

      Very Good, but not perfect

      I kind of figured that even for Will Smith being the primary and really only human character. It might be hard for him to take on but that wasn't the case at all with I Am Legend. While the creatures that he encounters aren't especially frightening (will not after the first couple times at least). It still manages to create a tension and excitement throughout the movie. He has a German Shepherd that his only real source of compassion and family as something terrible is revealed later on in the movie. While not overly long, I Am Legend managed to keep me interested and watching. Primarily because of Smith's character and the struggles he goes through with being the only person alive in the city. The movie holds up throughout and while not as fast paced as the first hour, I enjoyed the rest of the movie and an ending that leaves all kinds of possibilities for the future.

      Great Movie

      I thought it was a well thought out movie, however there were a few parts that needed work. The alternate version filled in some of those gaps and created a few new ones as well. For those that don't know, the movie is based around a virus that has been altered to cure cancer. It then mutates to become a harmful virus killing most people and changing most of the rest. Will Smith portrays a man who has been alone for 3 years facing despair every day. When you watch this movie keep in mind that scientist today are already working on this technology. The second disk, which contains the alternate version, is a pain in the you know what to watch. I watch all my movies on a computer, it tries to force you to use Microsoft media player. It also tries to force DRM on you and in doing so erases all your other DRM licenses. The second disk also has a smaller version that you are allowed to download to watch on IPods and similar equipment.

      I didn't get a chance to see this movie in theaters, so I asked around a bit to see if it was worth owning on Blu Ray. I got the thumbs up to get this movie from many people and I was not let down by the purchase. This film offers the original theatrical version as well as an alternate ending. Now most of the movie is exact, but there are a few alterations throughout the movie which makes the original and alternate version a bit different. Normally when there's an alternate ending in movies, it only happens in the end. This one gives you subtle clues as to how the two are different...keep an eye out on that. Also, there's actually a lot of bonus features in the film as well. I've had the movie since they released it and I'm still checking out features I haven't quite seen yet. One of the best Blu Ray titles available so far.
