About the Movie
Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable...and man-made. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City...and maybe the world. But he is not alone. He is surrounded by "the Infected" - victims of the plague who have mutated into carnivorous beings who can only exist in the dark and who will devour or infect anyone or anything in their path. For three years, Neville has spent his days scavenging for food and supplies and faithfully sending out radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. All the while, the Infected lurk in the shadows, watching Neville's every move, waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind's last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But his blood is also what The Infected hunt, and Neville knows he is outnumbered and quickly running out of time.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: I Am Legend is a blockbuster like no other, one that finds its grandness in modesty. It's a star vehicle with a star who knows his place in the universe.
Rotten: I wouldn't dream of giving away the ending, but it's not likely to satisfy either the action crowd or Matheson fans.
Fresh: So often, sci-fi is overproduced, but I Am Legend doesn't look like a CGI extravaganza. It looks like an edgy suspense movie shot on the fly in New York City after the fall. And because of that, it's all the more effective.
Fresh: I Am Legend is a grenade that goes off when least expected. It has more horror than heart, but it is never boring.
this movie is a great movie and definteley keeps you on the edge of your seat! very good movie would recommend
One of the Best Horror Movies to Date
This has to be one of the best horror movies to date (and yet it didn't win an acadamy...guess the folks over in Beverly Hills don't appreciate horror films!). I Am Legend refuses to be confined by adjectives--it is terrifying (the Darkseekers are the stuff of nightmares), heart-wrenching (I won't give too much away, but there's a part in the middle that will have most people in tears), action-packed (lots of running and being pursued by monsters), and it even has a touch of thought-provoking material (two words: "I'm listening"). It manages to tell the story without resorting to excess violence, sexed-up material, and foul language...something the rest of Hollywood, for some bizarre reason, just can't seem to pull off. At the risk of sounding cliched, I Am Legend is just that...Legendary! P.S. Will Smith is going to be the next man of a thousand faces...Rapper, futuristic cop (I, Robot), date advisor (Hitched), struggling single father (Pursuit of Happyness), pilot (Independence Day), alien-fighter (MIB I and II), and now virologist/action hero...is there nothing he can't do?!
