When I first saw the trailer for I Am Legend, all i could think of was, "I have to see this movie!". Luckily i got to see an early screening of the film with a friend and I have to say that this is a disturbingly realistic film that depicts a post-apocalyptic New York being overrun by the mutated victims of a widespread virus. Overall, this movie delivers great action sequences and a great story, along with a shocking ending. Will Smith's performance is outstanding and makes a great Robert Neville. There are a lot of sequences in the film that are disturbing but along with that, takes you to the edge of your seat! I would have to say that this is one of the best films out this year. It's nice to see an original, amazing movie released before the end of the year. You don't really get a lot of those these days in general. Although there are some things in this film which are left unexplained, the intensity of the creatures and the thickness of the plot makes up for it. All in all, you will not be disappointed. Great way to end the year.
