Just saw t last night.

Good movie. Basically it could be 28 Days later 3 (a better 28 Days later, even?)

"28 Days Later", "28 Weeks Later", "2.8 Years Later". :p

The Dark Knight Trailer was /awesome/.

Actually, this is a remake of a remake of a screenplay based on a novel. Omega Man in 1971 was remade from Last Man on Earth in 1964, all based on the 1954 novel I am Legend
Frankly, I think they did best on their third try, really

It was great, but one part is SO sad! The theater was packed. I almost jumped out of my seat a couple times.

It was actually only $12. I snuck in Jones soda and JujiFruits from Walgreens. :D
 
I loved the movie. I almost cried at one part :(

When I seen the Alpha male I was thinking "OMG Its Adam Sessler!"

I saw this movie yesterday (when it came out over here in the UK). It was class! Freaked me out though, I'm not gonna be comfortable in the dark for a while :p The bit with Sam made me cry though. Brilliant movie. I jumped about 4 times. They did an excellent job on making it very creepy as well. My mind proceeded to transplant the scenerio to where I live last night in my sleep... ergh...
What didn't help was walking down the street today and seeing "MIRACLE CURE FOR ALLERGIES" plastered all over the newspapers 0.0

And omw it totally is him!

I thought it was disappointing.

Nearly two hours of plot setup, and in the last twenty minutes we meet two characters who end up being the heroes? I couldn't have cared less about them, and they are the ones who end up living. Whooptydoo.

The effects were nice and Will Smith did an outstanding job, but the film left me utterly cold.

I preferred the book ending. (spoiler, highlight to read)


In it, the girl he meets up with isn't a human survivor, but a member of a strain of "vampires" called the Family, who don't have the bloodlust of the standard strain, but have the same weaknesses to light. When Neville goes around killing the vampires during the day by burning down their safe houses, he's also killing the members of the Family. She basically tricks him into letting down his guard, taking him back to the Family, where he's about to be executed. The night before he dies, he realizes that he's the last human being on Earth, and just as the vampires were creatures of his nightmare, he's the nightmare of the Family: a creature who walks by day, when they sleep, and kills them. His memory will be used to frighten children in their sleep. His last thought is, "I am Legend."


But it was too close to the Omega Man, so they couldn't use it.
 
I didn't like the movie. I walked out of the theater feeling conflicted, and I never figured out why. The ending didn't leave me with any closure, I guess. It was a great movie, very well shot, well scripted, and I couldn't think of anyone better than Will Smith to play Robert Neville. The movie just... I'm not totally why, but it felt like it rubbed me the wrong way.

The scene that everyone is alluding to, the "sad" one, I thought was shot very, very excellently. It gave us really human emotion, and I was surprised with how well Will Smith pulled it off. This was easily my favorite movie he's acted in.

There really should be a spoiler tag on this thread so we can discuss the movie in less vague depth.

Yeah, I kinda feel the same way. The whole film was well done and all (like with Will Smith's good performance and a good script) but I felt that there were a few plotholes and a few questions left unanswered, (spoilers ahead) like how Robert Neville was able to put up those heavy security vaults on the doors and windows by himself and how Anna really knew about the survivors colony in Vermont (even though she keeps saying that it is all "God's plan" that she had a gut feeling about). And I kind of thought that the vampires were more of a mix between vampires, zombies and mutants instead of just vampires. I saw this movie with my family last night, and my mother thinks that the CGI animation of the vampires/zombies/mutants (XD) were basically copied from the models used for the robots in "I, Robot." :p Overall, I rate the film a "B" and consider it as a film that's worth seeing for fun.
 
I liked the movie ending more. I could tell the author got bored and just threw Neville's death in just to end the book. He hated it in the end renaming him as an anagram of "terrible novel" and it shows.

I think the ending was blah, I also heard the scene was reshot to have those two actors at the end. I'll have to agree that the vampires did look like Bad Poser models (Poser as in the program XD) as someone else stated elsewhere. I think Will Smith and "Samantha's" performances obviously saved this movie.

I think the mass number of the infected was enough than just superhuman strength...but whatever.

I will go read the book, I remember the mention that the Author often did stuff for the Twilight Zone so I like stuff like that.
 
I just saw it today, and it blew me away. I loved it, and it was an awesome performance by Will, especially at the already-mentioned sad part. That brought tears to my eyes.
