Storyline

Robert Neville is a scientist who was unable to stop the spread of the terrible virus that was incurable and man-made. Immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and perhaps the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague -- 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 he knows he is outnumbered... and quickly running out of time. Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

Quotes

[first lines]
TV Personality: The world of medicine has seen its share of miracle cures, from the polio vaccine to heart transplants. But all past achievements may pale in comparison to the work of Dr. Alice Krippin. Thank you so much for joining us this morning.
Dr. Alice Krippin: Not at all.
TV Personality: So, Dr. Krippin, give it to me in a nutshell.
Dr. Alice Krippin: Well, the premise is quite simple - um, take something designed by nature and reprogram it to make it work for the body rather than against it.
TV Personality: You're talking about a virus?
Dr. Alice Krippin: Indeed, yes. In this...

I Am Rubbish! watch the omega man instead!
31 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

A genetically modified virus which was supposed to cure cancer ends up wiping out most of the world's population, Will Smith is scientist Robert Neville, immune to this virus, he is the only uninfected human left in New York City, his only companion is his Alsatian dog Sam.

Eventually, Smith discovers people in New York who have not been killed by the virus, but have been mutated by it, and as a result, have become creatures who emerge at nightfall. Neville does research in his basement laboratory to try and find a cure for the virus, and regularly sends out radio messages, calling for other survivors to come and meet him, I Am Legend, spent decades languishing away in development hell, it should of stayed there! this is evident as what really is a great premise is wasted. There must of been a deadline to get this made, and the flaws are all too apparent witness the rubbish CGI effects (the CGI mutated dogs spring to mind) and also the creatures. in my opinion watch Charlton Heston in 'The Omega Man' it's a much,much better film.
