I Am Legend Review:

I Am Legend is a post-apocalyptic science fiction movie. The movie revolves around the character of Robert Neville (Will Smith) a military virologist who is left as the lone “survivor” in the New York city after a virus wiped out majority of the population while those left were turned into “hostile mutants” called “Dark-seekers” as they can’t bear sunlight. Movie tells the story about how the virus broke out and how New York lost all its inhabitants except Robert. Robert also lost his wife and daughter in the evacuation process of the city. Now after few years since the virus broke out Robert lives a solitary life in his house with his dog (a German Shepherd) who is also not affected by the virus. Robert follows a daily routine of finding a cure for the virus and going out and broadcasting a radio message for the survivor (if there is any left). One day while he was out he was trapped by the Dark-seekers and he gets injured, he also loses his dog as he bitten by Dark-seekers and turned into a mutant, so Robert kills it himself.

Later on, next day Robert deliberately put  himself among many Dark-seekers eventually he loses control of his vehicle and fell unconscious. When he wake up, he sees that there is a young woman named Anna (Alice Braga) and a boy Ethan (Charlie Tahan) accompanying him in his house. Anna tells Robert how she and Ethan survived and now they are going towards Bethal, Vermont to a survivors camp, upon hearing this Robert loses his control and keep on saying that no such camp exists in Vermont and that it is futile to attempt to go there. The very same night they are attacked by Dark-seekers in Robert’s house. Robert alongside Anna fights with the Dark-seekers but, he feels astonish to learn that the leader of the mutant group has come to get his wife back (whom Robert had earlier captured for research purpose).

I Am Legend ends when Robert returns the female mutant to her husband and the mutants leave Robert, Anna and Ethan unhurt. After that Robert along with his new friends leaves New York for Bethal, Vermont survivor camp.

My Rating Of The I Am Legend Movie:

I rated this movie 5 out of 10. Mainly because I am not really impressed by the story-line and there are too few actors in the movie to make it exciting. In fact, it can be safely said that there is only Will Smith in the movie. The music and background score too is just okay for me, there’s nothing extraordinary about I Am Legend.

My Verdict Of I Am Legend:

If you love those mutant, virus, apocalyptic themed movies then you might like I Am Legend also. But, if you are looking for some good acting and strong story-line based movie then this is definitely not for you. The good thing about this movie is that Will Smith as we all expect from him has given his best, but the problem is there is hardly anyone else in the movie with a substantial role. So, this is a kind of “one character” based movie.
