Default I AM LEGEND review (no 'give aways' in this topic)

Katie and I went and saw it last night. I have her eyeball imprints in the right sleeve of my leather jacket.

The trailers, spoilers, and previews are VERY misleading. Not at all what either of us were expecting.

Good movie? Sure. But I think it could have been ALOT better, more dramatic, and a much better ending than they did.

7/10.

so what is it really about? Since you said the previews etc are very misleading..

I got the gist that he'* the last man on earth, was that even right or misleading?

I'm not going to spoil it.

Answering either of your questions would do that.

I really want to go and see this, I may go on Sunday and check it out. Looks pretty good from the previews.
The only reason I want to see it is because of that Mustang....cough..kidding!

The previews remind me of “The Omega Man” with Charlton Heston.

The main character in I am Legend is the same name as the character Charleton Heston played.


There'* a much different twist to the story though. Not really the same at all, even though they're closely linked obviously.

The "The Omega Man" is the sequel of the first one "The Last Man on Earth" (1964)
staring Vincent Price. See both of these first, then go see " I AM LEGEND". Cindy and I also went to see it last night and let me tell you how it ends .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .........................................

So there you have it, not a bad movie but not a great movie. Don't forget the popcorn.

My personal opinion is the movie blowed big time. I was not impressed and I had a hard time staying awake. My opinion, though.

myself and the ladyfriend saw it friday--it wasnt a life-changing experience, but it was good. I would like a little more to the story personally, perhaps there will be a prequel.

for the many ways and stories that could have been portrayed, it was very streamlined and simple--which was nice. and thankfully NO STUPID TWIST AT THE END--though it did end a bit abruptly.

That mustang in the beginning sounded GOOD. On second thought, if i was the last man on earth, i dont think id be driving a stang, i dont care what mr. shelby did to it.
