    Actually I'm pretty liberal about giving movies a chance and I don't miss too many flicks - including the bad films like this one.
    I read this script long ago and saw who who was making the movie and that they had cast Mr. Hollywood one-liner as Neville but I was still there with bells on to see it hoping to be surprised, but it turned out even worse than expected.
    Bottom line, I Am Legend deserved better than the treatment these filmmakers gave it.
    Good for you Gloat that you liked it. The filmmakers were counting on you..

    I didnt think it was great, but it was a solid movie. Entertaining and worth the watch. I just think you were too hard on it, mostly due to liking the book. Without knowing the book, you'd probably have a different opinion on the movie. Right?

    I would have thought it was another typical Hollywood Will Smith joint with at best maybe two creepy scenes, bad CGI creatures and a completely forgettable ending. I Am Legend can't be disassociated with the original tale though and to use a modern phrase in regard to an old story, they should have done their best to keep it real..

    Just watched this movie and remembered the thread. I like this ending better.

    Overall, the movie was ok, but didn't live up to the hype it got. Maybe Cloverfield will live up to that blockbuster title.

    PS (spoiler....kinda, sorta, maybe) I hated the dog scene :grrr:
