Director: Francis Lawrence
Starring: Will Smith, Alice Braga, Willow Smith and Charlie Tahan.
This is one of the saddest films ever. I love it and my heart breaks at the end every time. It’s a sci-fi, horror, and action all rolled into one. It’s not my favorite end of the world film but I do really enjoy it. I love the feel to it. The eerieness of it as it’s just him and his dog. It has a different feel to it then like what 28 days later has. It’s because I Am Legend is a really sad take on the end of the world and the plague whereas 28 Days Later is more drama throughout and it’s not really sad. I wouldn’t say the film is anything special but Will Smith as the only character does a great job. He carries it well and you really feel for the character, especially when he talks to the mannequins. He also talks to his dog. It’s really sad.
Rating: 6/10 it could have been better.
Tomorrow I will be reviewing 28 Days Later 🙂
