This would be my most favorite zombie movie of all time - if they had used REAL PEOPLE for the zombies. The first time a zombie roars and his jaw drops a whole friggin foot and wiggles - I just couldn't take it. Totally lost me with the cgi. 28 days later was much scarier because they used real people.

I almost like it. I love the mustang driving around, and the guns, and the premise and storyline - it's just the zombies. They ruined the whole thing.

Not so bad, but the alternate ending is worse than the one in the movie, in my opinion.

Curiously hollow. Bad CG.

Omega Man was better.

Feeling more like 28 Days Later than The Omega Man, I Am Legend may use the original story's title, but it's not any closer to it. But I'm not judging it as an adaptation. The film is at its best showing Will Smith surviving in an empty New York with his dog, his mind teetering on the edge of insanity as he tries to cure the virus that has mostly wiped out the city's population. The visuals are strong, the acting effective, the survival techniques well thought-out. It's at its weakest when the plague zombies come out, as I truly feel it was a mistake to render them as CGI. They look fake and silly, and you can't really believe they used to be people. The white make-up in The Omega Man was cheap and simple, sure, but is still better than what we get here. So not a bad flick, but I kept getting pulled out whenever the monsters showed up.

They screwed that story up in so many ways it's not even funny. Poor Richard Matheson.

Okay, I don't really know if I like this movie or not. I liked Will Smith's acting, the unusual pictures and the scary atmosphere when night approaches...great. On the other hand as soon as the woman (Anna) showed up the movie lost a bit of it's appeal. Additionally, the movie ended too quickly for me - I was waiting for more information, e.g. on this woman whom Smith's character tried to heal... I'm not sure what exactly was missing, but I just left the cinema feeling like some aspects of the story could have been pursued a little further.

Oh, and I forgot to mention my favorite character. The little brother/son (I don't think it was ever explained) of the chick. I don't remember his name though. But wasn't he a hell of a character? I mean, I think he even said one line somewhere in the film. He's awesome!

I haven't read the novel, but I know that they changed the ending completely to make the movie much more bland and hollywood-ish. The title doesn't make any sense now. He should have been the legend for the zombies not for the future people. Now the ending is exactly the same as the one from another "gem" of a movie called The Postman by Kevin Costner.
Alternative ending is way better and closer to the original ending, but still a little bit... you know...
Everyone who cried when the dog died have been fooled, because it's way too easy to make wievers care for a cute and innocent animal. When you care for a human being it means the movie is good. But nobody cried when Will Smith died, because this movie sucked.

If you are like me and somehow haven't seen this movie yet, don't bother. It didn't age well.

Naked Terror (1964) is better. It has Vincent Price.

Watch the movie with the original ending, not the theatrical one. Executive meddling turned a very good movie into a so-so one.
